    @EA_Blueberry please clarify... is this "HUT Rush" kids-clown-mode replacing HUT, or in addition to HUT. If it's in addition to HUT, will there be a HUT deep-dive before release day?

    Earn points with style 😎
    Get HUT Rewards ✅
    Earn Double points if you can make sure the AI ​​has the stick on the right side when defending 💰
    Earn Triple Double the same as in NBA if you make sure that the AI ​​is active with the hockey stick and always tries to actively poke the puck! This is the highest rating and you can get it every time you arrange it with EA devs -> you can call them you can write them it's up to you, be creative! 🎉💯🎉® all rights are reserved

    ......Yes, only now I think it makes sense for me to play HUT or ChEL and buy nhl21.
  • Nothing wrong with appealing to kids and trying to find new buyers, but it shouldn't come at the expense of making the best representation of the NHL, which they are not doing.

    While I'm not opposed to adding GM Connected back into the game (as long as it doesn't take away from other aspects of the game), I wonder why you wouldn't want to just create an EASHL team and really dive head first into the fantasy of working your way up the ranks with everything custom?
  • If you do care about HUT at all then check this out.....

    HUT is *blows raspberry* but that is a gigantic QoL improvement; I can't believe it took them this long

    They now have this in vs and offline instead... 😏

    Nah, probably right thing to do, nothing more disturbing then to put time to that minor fix...

    No injuries come on it was fun watching the Mary's quit because you hurt Crosby or Mcdavid or Kane ..I never found this to be such an issue
  • What ever they're going to use as pack filler now, mascots?

    But I dont think they mean for the injuries in the game to be taking away. Thats probebly as usal. But after the game, you don't have to worry. A win win.

    *Thats how I read it, otherwise it sucks. It's strategy to go hard against top players and should be a price to pay if you like to speed up.

    I could care less about HUT or NHL Threes.

    Let's get to the Be A Pro and Franchise Mode stuff. Those modes should be the staples of the game, not HUT and NHL Threes. HUT and NHL Threes should be secondary modes. But sadly they have become the game modes EA caters to (and while I'm saying this I'll acknowledge that Franchise has gotten plenty of love over the last few years) and it's taking away from the long standing modes EA has had for years.

    And I'm still waiting for the return in an online Franchise mode. And I'll even say that I don't even care if they call it GM Connected or not, that part is irrelevant to me, long as the mode is made with the same basic concepts in mind.

    Yeah some online Franchise mode would kick my HUT out of the door, online VS is kinda pointless. But to play a league and fight your way to playoffs with your favorite team would be dreamy.




    *Maybe were getting that HUT deep dive today, can it be more 'late september'..
  • Sure would be nice to have the HUT Deep Dive today. Fingers crossed!

    Maybe thats part of why we haven't seen gm connected. Not saying the devs are being sneaky about it but I could certainly see the execs think "if we put in gm connected we might lose hut dollars".

    Not a bad thought. Could perhaps slow it down abit, but im sure HUT will survive. (still feed them)

    Im thinking some online Franchise might be more for elder people.

    This most definitely wouldn't be the reason why GMC hasn't returned yet. If that were the case, you could say the same for every other mode in the game. EASHL and Franchise Mode have received a lot of attention over the years and there are some really big changes for Be A Pro coming. I definitely get the assumption, but if HUT was the only mode we cared about, there wouldn't be others in the game.
