  • Is that all? Any stability patches and bug fixes?
  • I'm glad the team is finally beginning to work on the important things instead of wasting time on various bug fixes and pfft... stability
  • Lol ,no real fixes needed , because hey it's in a good place ....this will truly be my last NHL game what a joke this series has become ,as it is I can only stand playing 2 games 3 tops

    20 took half the year just to get passing sorta right again. Beyond that this has been a bigger flop than the last games. Only the developers have found this game to be "in a good place" I honestly thought they were trolling us when this was said. Thought they were trolling again with this update, still unclear if they are if I'm being totally honest. Anytime we complain about anything it's something they've not seen or witnessed or we're not good enough/ not playing the right way. I love hockey but it's SOOO hard to promote this game. The guys being paid to promote it in these board have the HARDEST job at EA. Granted I honestly believe they just don't ACTUALLY play the game, just based on how they reply.

    The CPU is the WORST part of this game.. the developers don't know how to make them make smart decisions so they SUPER boost everything they can to make them WAY better than humans... Just also dumb

    Bad for eliminator on small ice, you lose
    Bad for drop-in, because CPU is WAY smarter and better than your avg. Joe NHL.

    I've had to reset my app 3-4 times to finish one tournament on several occasions. There are AAA titles with less crashes. Does EA have no money? Where did our money go?

    Blue screen crashes in eliminator
    Black screen crashes in eliminator
    Team moved on w/o you in eliminator
    Team moves into lobby w/o you in drops

    No way to combat trolls and there are SO many

    No GM connected STILL!?

    It's simply amazing just HOW far behind this game is than EVERY other major sport title. But we have face masks and Snoop dog now.

    I honestly believe Madden/ 2k5 were FAR more polished than this. This was TWO system generations ago, 15 years! They had more to do in franchise, being a pro player made you feel more immersed. No crashes, no super human CPU players, you could easily adjust the CPU so they didn't feel too easy or too hard. In 2k you customized your pad which was actually pretty fun, you could face off against diff celebs which was also actually pretty fun (now you can walk around an ENTIRE city block in NBA 2k, go get new clothes, hair cut, see others playing games, they have a brand new storyline each year, you can create your own shoes, edit stats, your be a pro equivalent is tied into your world of chel equivalent) I'm honestly not sure if the NHL series will EVER get to something like this and it's kinda sad to think about..



  • Just.. wow.
  • I agree with what everybody is said here this is a total joke EA of the company is a total joke especially the EA sport side we need someone else to make NHL games anybody at this point ea cares about is money money money not about the quality of product that they put out there for people to spend their hard-earned money on it's a shame there was a time I really cared about this series but she's not worth my money anymore or my time

    I really don't see them doing anything to this game and next year probably be the same thing , besides they have basically said this is what the top players wanted

    Do you really think that the developer only care about the money? In that case, it must be really sad to go at the work and dont feel nothing for the product they workin with. I bealive you must separate the big company and the small people.
    Of curse a company care about money, who dosent, but that dosent meen I care less for hockey, by exempel.

    Personally I hate this system. Having archetypes for online makes sense for gameplay balance reasons but offline you should have the option to make the exact type of player you want.

  • So should we just all stop playing EASHL and all other game modes?
  • You know what - from a guy that only plays online versus, NHL 20 is in a very good place balance wise compared to nhl 17,18 or 19.
    Far less times that when a goal goes in that I feel like there was nothing I could do. I mean, sure, there are bad bounces, that’s hockey. When someone snipes a goal they it’s usually an all star sniper, and hey, that happens. The lower rates guys it happens a lot less.

    The DSS works very well. I have been able to contain lots of people and cut off passing lanes with it. It took a while to find the groove but I’ve been finding it lately. Don’t loop in the d-zone, don’t let your assignment blow by you. I found myself after this patch wanting to hit more cuz it works better but I miss them too much and went from a 700 cr t almost 500! Now I’m back to 605 and working up.

    Before the patch I was taking advice from high ranked youtubers and using their strategies but i thought after the recent patch, I’d do something other than the super passive defense, playing the trap, and playing a puck possession game.

    I’ve been playing using the 221 blue and 3-2 aggressive with press and usually conservative or aggressive offensive pressure. I don’t touch the sliders. So every line has its own character. I been dumping it in lots. Using sauce pass, regular pass, self sauce. Any means necessary. It’s the turn overs in the neutral and offensive zone are the devil, so I hold onto the puck lots with my goalie to take a face off. I use strong slide slant and close support lots, take it slow up the ice. Pass it back to the dmen. Smart hockey.

    It’s an actual pretty sweaty cuz you’re always having to pressure guys , I love it.
    I played maybe 12 games yesterday and many of them were 1-0, 2-1 games. I love that.

    The only thing I’d like to see is maybe the players speed and acceleration slowed down to a more realistic speed.

    Go flames!
  • Slightly disappointing patch imo. Shame.

    A. Looking at how long it took for the first patch, why expect another already?

    B. Given the above mentioned time line and how the dev cycle works I highly doubt we see another patch because it's time to focus on NHL21.

    C. If they didn't patch in this content they would have caught heat for that too.

    At least they are trying, in my opinion, in a good way too, how easy can it be to be mama and Papa to over 10000 and 10000 people, for every year they take a big step to something bigger. And if the community and devoloper go together, I guess we can go pretty far.

    one thing at a time.. Its meny components that needs to click for a perfect feeling out in our virtuell hockey rink.

    Keep up!
