Check out our April 3rd patch details here.

EASHL Club 6's

Now that we have club 3's, there should be a minimum player amount to play club 6's.
You should NOT be able to play a 6's club game with 3 or less players. Go play 3's club. I'm tired of matching up with a team of 2 players who let their CPU's do most of the work.

    Agreed. I've posted about this further fragmenting the community. You have people running with 2 and 3 players in 3s and 6s. It is stupid.

    its been happening since eashl club was released 10 years ago. its not any worse now than it was then.

    EA could solve it easy, as has been suggested many many times for many years. Allow searches to have more control what types of teams they will match up against. Just have a series of check boxes that list the amount of human skaters you would be willing to play against.

    just another choice they make to not listen their playbase.

    Yup that too, they need to do one or the other.
  • Waiting 5 minutes only to run into 2 players playing in 6's is sickening.

    5 mins? that would be pretty fast.

    since they created 3on3 club i dont see it quite as much in 6s but it definitely still happens.
  • Either put that restriction on or make CPU's so bad that people aren't able to depend on them to bail them out and win games. If CPU players were made worse in EASHL people would actually put forth and effort to find players to play with. I feel finding players and making teams with other players is what the mode was made for. Unfortunately it's become a mode where bad players depend on CPU to help them win games as they skate around (mostly out of position, but CPU covers for them) making every mistake imaginable and then play the same when they play drops with humans. I think this last update made CPU's even better. You think any new players are gonna want to play w/o CPU help now??? I've posted lots of ways before but just give us more tools to recruit players and players tools to find clubs so we can play more 6s, 3's and even threes with ALL human players. Make CPU goalies worse so that a good human goalie is actually REALLY worth something and glitch shots are not such a cancer. This mode would be so much better if there were a LOT more humans than CPU. As it stands now you will likely have 80% 6s, 3's, and threes with 2 guys. EA wonders why... If the minimum was 1 I bet some people would even do that if they could!

    The problem with 6s now is that pass interceptions are insanely high. You can pick it from behind your back w/o looking at the puck. Every player on the ice is now a magnet for the puck. The ice isn't big enough to set up as much of an offense. That mode is mostly 1 player trying to take it the distance so that they don't get intercepted. Even shots get picked and immediately possessed. Can't play even somewhat real hockey like this. CPU players are even more insane with taking the puck. If they're near it then they will get it. Stick lift from behind your back if they have to! The mode is nearly unplayable. 3's is better because you CAN make passes, the problems are that teams will get up by 1 point and hide behind their net, effectively setting up a 2 on 1 when you chase him out using 2 guys. So it's nearly broken when you play try hards. I also feel you can almost ONLY choose tiny player builds in that mode because speed is so important. Threes is actually probably the best mode in eashl. It's arcade but you can ACTUALLY play defense instead of JUST being in a position. Pass interceptions are closer to what 6's should be than what 6's are (6s should be a bit better than what threes currently is, threes should stay the same) threes also makes every build viable just like 6's. The main problem with threes is CPU. The ice is tiny but CPU can intercept and block/take pucks when shots are put on. A mascot is even worse because they have the reach of an enforcer or better, the speed of a sniper/ faster, the hit of an enforcer/ harder, the shot of a sniper, puck possession/passing of a playmaker and anything else. They get out of position from time to time but with the ice being so small it rarely matters. Every mode in this game is broken for one reason or another. The easy fix that would change EVERYTHING is make CPU worse (not in HUT or other modes) just in the mode that is FOR human players to play along side and against human players. The ONLY people that want CPU to be good are people who want to play with CPU to have them bail them out. If they want to play with CPU there are modes for that, tons of them! Apart from that just make defense against the pass a bit more like 19. I think the passing is far better in this game, I'm not constantly taken over when a pass is made to me to pull me. Passes go where are aim them. It's good for offense.
