Hi yes i missed nhl20 because even after setting it is still not as good as nhl 19. and there are a lot of things that bother me on nhl 20. but maybe the right time has come when ea sports now has a lot more viewership due to the virus. Maybe there will be more experts who will help ea with a more realistic concept of hockey. maybe finally and definitely cancels skating behind with a puck on the stick and cancels the bubble around the goalkeeper when there is no way to attack him and more and more similar nonsense the same as "never miss a chance thanks to a contextual animation", "never lost a speed thanks to a perfect unrealistic pickup stride" and more and more so arcadish&childish mechanism. Listen EA: "we are happy if anybody from this world can be a hockey player star! BUT non Korean or China's player can be the same as the Wayne Gretzky level". You can also add more things that fans want, for example, more options to set the entire game screen to your liking, such as the scoreboard up or down left or right, as well as choose from several types of icons above the player's head. more sales means more criticism. And that's good. After all, the difference between fifa and nhl is already so big that I'm starting to ask myself if it's not better to play football ... What do you think about reality will be more important if coronavirus is holding real player at home?

    They are not able or not willing to do simple work. For example to give all real Player a Portrait picture. Many have only Black screens. Give up your hope man. With this Team never will change to good.

    We have to use the image sent to us by the leagues. If a player isn't there the day they're taking pictures, they won't have an image. We can't just track down every player and set up a photoshoot with them. I get that it's frustrating they don't have an image. We get as many of them as we can.

    That’s absolutely not true. Look at Makars picture that’s not from the League. Would you say that this was sent by the League ? Many Players have different pictures from the web. Sometimes from HockeyDB, sometimes from other Sites. Saw also some with Helmet. You don’t need to make a photoshoot from Players. Second of all you have licence of the Leagues. Ask to send or copy from there and add during updates. The AHL League is full of photos which are not in the game. Same as Player likenesses. You have so many scanned Players in your archive, why do you not add some Players every Roster update ? No other important Sport game has black frames as a Player Portrait. [Removed - CM] I am done with this Game. Every year the same !
    To name some of hundreds missing.

    I understand that it is not so easy to accommodate all players. And I also understand that every sports game is very difficult to program. But going back to every EA brochure, there are words about the dynamics of the player on the ice. And I still don't see any dynamics anymore, this is the first and basic principle of every real hockey game. Dynamics and dynamism and explosiveness and accelerated reactions of the player under the rush of adrenaline. This is the main thing I miss in nhl from EA and every other script only delays it. Above all, the fast reaction of the player and the feeling that I have a hockey stick in my hand again, as in nhl07, that is the main basis of the game. That's why I think that if there are more quarantined players, they have time to warn EA that their hockey still looks like pond hockey, and those pairs of hits won't do it and it won't make it an e-sport. The whole series has already moved somewhere, but the physics of the game and the reaction of the controller must be a priority and the main engine. Someone has to come bang on the table and say: let's do the biggest action on the ice so that every match looks like the final of the stanleycup! And it must be someone who really understands hockey and preferably someone who really plays hockey :)
