    It is so if you post a picture or video, they can disable your account

    I know WHY they did it. My question is still valid: who in the HALLIBUT, thought this was a good idea? You wanna know who posted an illegal picture or video of your "closed technical test" how about just have the Gamertag appear in the top corner where it doesn't bother anyone?

    Instead of having it displayed in size 72 font and popping up everywhere on the screen. No other game with a closed test does this. Sister Mary Francis...

    You want people to actually participate in a test, not drive them away cuz their gamertag is obstructing their view everywhere they look.

    BTW, I played one game, and my opponent quit on me. Who quits on a test? LOL!! Where's the report tool in this test?

    Because it's easily cropped out that way.

    If you take a picture, you can still crop it out, because it's going to be in a static location in a pic. They could've put a thin scrolling banner at the left with your gamertag repeated and scrolling up or down. That would've been much less obtrusive.
  • This will be the first year I don't buy a hockey game.
  • @EASPORTS_AJ

    What’s up with having our gametag popping everywhere even while we play a game? Would it be possible to remove this? It’s quite annoying.

    i'ts in case you decide to stream or take SS lol they will know its you

    They're probably more concerned with video clips than static images.

    Doesn't make it any less annoying.
  • Guys playing the trap lol
  • I thought we agreed to a non disclosure agreement by playing this. I hope those who break it get punished accordingly. I've yet to have a chance to play it but the whole point of the NDA is already gone.

    Not a fan of the goalie practice mode solo as you can't change the camera view from dynamic medium. Makes practice worthless unless you use that camera.

    Paddle down has been removed with spread eagle save attempt.

    @VeNOM2099 Goalie isn't going to be fun judging from the 1v1. CPU is like a great sniper even on shots you come out and challenge top of the circle.
  • Well that was fun ,
  • The only good thing I noticed so far is when you poke at the puck it knocks it loose it doesn't take 4 or 5 attempts to knock it loose ,or maybe I'm crazy .. anyone else

    Not my experience, but I'll save my comments for the NHL 21 Technical forums.

    Your inputs as always will be greatly appreciated
  • Lol maybe they're working on the gamer tag
  • 3 games in before the server break, but im happy to say, this Technical beta is miles away better then 20 is with all its updates.

    People tryed L2 like maniac and self sauce without any luck, or at least, without any good reasons to do it. Seem to just make it harder for them to put up a play.

    Way more easy to put pressure in the zone, had some nice rebounds too, its never a dumb option to put the puck on net.

    Dump and chase is in the game too..

    This can absolutely be good once the game seattel in and people adjust.. I really hope so!

    Gametag all over the screen big minus!
  • Lol ..i thought the LT was pretty good not op

    This is encouraging. I hope to get into a game in a bit after I eat dinner before the Bruins game tonight.
  • Goalie: Paddle Down = RT + A to activate *Xbox *

    Playing a game with a yellow connection and my screen completely shakes every I move in the slightest.

    Can't switch views as a goalie to see the play in the other end using the Back Button

    AI is better too, poke checks, well everything seem to be abit better, much more easy to play defense, in other words, staying in position.

    But of course, everyone playing "20" now, I could tell, sooner or later people will start to figure out what works best in this game... Thats when the real test is.. Hopefully playing honest hockey will be the best choose.

    Anyway, have fun playing all!

    *And good luck vs Tampa! ✊
