    I'm having problems playing specific game modes, had the same problem in NHL 20 and 21 technical test. Can someone on the DEV team reach out to me? Nothing I've tried to do can fix this and it's happened since the game modes were introduced

    You receive your loyalty rewards during the Play First Trial. Your pre-order content will come to your account once your game edition's version is live. So for the Great Eight and Deluxe edition the content will come on the 13th.

    I'm curious, do you have a custom Gamertag picture? A player was unable to connect and was able to fix it by changing the Gamertag pic to a default one (see this thread). We saw a similar connectivity issue in UFC with custom Gamertag pics.

    @602RAFPuff

    So I have that happen to me as well when a new update releases, sometimes it takes 10 seconds for the prompt to show up to download the update. Before the prompt comes up I'm able to keep launching the game to where it backs me back out, vicious cycle!

    Try allowing 30 seconds to see if it comes up. If not, try power cycling and let me know if that helps.

    How to power cycle your Xbox console:
    1. Turn off the Xbox One console by pressing the Xbox button on the front of the console for about 10 seconds until it shuts down completely.
    2. Unplug the console’s power cable. Wait 10 seconds. Important Be sure to wait 10 seconds. This step resets the power supply.
    3. Plug the console power cable back in.
    4. Press the Xbox button on your console to turn on the Xbox One.
  • Maybe there should have been an open beta first???

    Naah, it's much better this way, people can spend their 10 hour trial for beta testing... 😁
  • I just read improvements from the Technical Test, solid list I must say...

    Im curious to know, how's everyone doing? Anyone that participated in the test that now have tryed this EA Play launch that could tell how it feels? Any notable changes?

    Hope you all have fun!
  • I am curious why did you removed "buy now range" filter in auction house? I bought some packs, tried to sell item from them and it's really chaotic now in auction house and it was only 3000 items on the market at that time... I can't imagine trying to figure out player price if there are 10 times more players than now...

    (Didn’t see a dedicated Be A Pro forum, so am posting this here.)

    First off: Been watching early gameplay and this does look awesome. Very excited.

    That being said, I’m honestly massively disappointed there’s not an option to pick the team you want to be drafted by. 😳 The previous games had you shoehorned into the exact same teams EVERY TIME if you did well in the minors, and then the trade/free agency thing was incredibly limited.
    I respect you can play career mode straight up ‘realistic’ and let the chips fall where they may on draft day, but the point of Be A Pro is to live out the legacy YOU want to have. The game could’ve very easily had a reporter ask you who your dream team was with an option after the first game to either pick a favorite or just say ‘anywhere.’ If you do chose a team, then that team matches your excitement and trades up the draft to pick you 1st. Being drafted 1st by your favorite team seems like a great way to start a dream career, and a truly unique narrative choice. Apparently, if I want to get drafted by a team like Edmonton, I’m expected to completely tank my Memorial Cup / CHL run and hope my draft stock falls.

    That’s not fun. What if I want to be a lifer and play my entire career with my favorite team..?

    I’m SO very thankful EA has FINALLY given the NHL career mode a drastically needed overhaul, and I am excited to play it as I want to show support as to where this game mode is heading. Again, I respect that there’s a level of realism in the game - yet there’s also the very real world realization I’m forking over $70 (during a period of time where circumstances make generating consistent income sometimes hard to come by) to play a video game advertised as having the ability to shape my career, but am initially saddled on a team I have absolutely zero interest in playing for over multiple seasons.
    ...Kinda like ALWAYS being drafted to the Sabres in NHL 19, then penalized for having the gall to sim a few games. 🤷🏻‍♂️
  • Are you able to changes team jerseys in the new version of Be A Pro?
  • All EASHL games I've tried have had horrible lag. Averaging 150+ms by myself in drop ins and with friends on team games.

    Xbox here. Anyone else?
  • When i open pack, there is no animation. The screen stay black ans i need to restart the game. I think im not the only one with this problem. Also, didnt get my loyalty pack...
  • How do we get to the EASHL practice rink...? Been searching the menus and not seeing it

    It’s not a separate menu. Need minimum two skaters in a dressing room and then hit square/x to modify settings and it’s where you change from public to private or practice.

    The free skate feature with your skater/goalie is triangle/y in the edit loadout screen.
