Is there a plan to patch in updated equipment in the near future?

Prev13
I know this stuff is seemingly trivial but it really detracts from the immersion and authenticity when the players don’t look anything like their real life counterparts. A few things:

- The default helmet in world of chel is the Bauer Reakt 100. Bauer stopped making this helmet 2 years ago. The Reakt 150 and 95 are arguably the two most popular/worn helmet shells in the NHL and both ARENT in the game. I highly doubt this is a Bauer decision and is pure EA laziness - since the game is a medium for Bauer to spread awareness/market their latest equipment releases. The fact that these aren’t in the game but we have 900 variations of clown skates is laughable.

- New CCM Tacks 910 helmet isn’t in the game.

- Bauer 2X gloves aren’t in the game.

As an aside and to add fuel to the fire: the COVER ATHLETE is wearing the wrong equipment. They have Ovechkin in Tacks skates that he’s never worn from 2014 when his CCM AS3s are in the game. He’s also in CL500 gloves when his FT1 gloves are in the game. Again - who cares but have a bit of pride and attention to detail in your product.

  • Two years ago we saw equipment patched in I believe, but not last year. Also as a goalie gear guy, the Bauer pads the reigning Vezina trophy winners uses still locks the correct color zones...
  • It’s beyond frustrating. Helmets I feel make the players likeness the most out of anything. Like really? Nobody wears the reakt 200 or the true dynamic helmet. The latter someone might next year so leave it. But they are missing
    -Bauer reakt/95
    -reakt 150
    -CCM fl80 (Crosby hasn’t looked right in years...)
    -tacks 910

    Gloves:Bauer 2X, warrior alpha DX(should have been in last year...) yet there are verbero gloves nobody uses... props for adding the sherwood Code V though

    Sticks: no warrior alpha DXSL (in 20 anyhow.) one of the by far most used sticks.

    Skates: the ultrasonic are the wrong colour. They should be yellow! There are custom versions in red but either have them all or have the retail yellow. Looks awful.
  • Good catch on the ultrasonics. Most guys will wear the yellow ones.

    exactly. As much as I’d like to have custom coloured sticks and skates it’s not often pros use them anyhow. It would be cool for the flylite sticks but it’s not as needed as helmets.

  • Bump.
  • Bump.
  • I really hope they add the Lefevre aka True goalie equipment. With so many of the pros switching from CCM to Lefevre at the end of last season and during the playoffs it' surprising that it wasn't included. I'm also surprised that the new Vaughn Pro V Elite gear wasn't included either. That's been around for two years now with again many guys using it.

    After editing pretty much the whole league, this is the equipment ea needs to add.

    NHL 21
    Helmets:
    Bauer reakt 95
    CCM FL80 (not a big deal but more wear it than the fit lite including big name players like Crosby and Tarasenko)
    CCM tacks 910

    Gloves:
    Bauer 2X
    CCM HG12 (pro glove heavily used)
    CCM U+CL (pro glove heavily used)
    CCM super tacks AS1 (not used in the nhl but huge in Europe)
    Warrior Alpha DX
    Side note: it’s warrior Covert QRE gloves not alpha qre.

    Sticks:
    Warrior alpha DX SL

    Skates:
    Change the colour of the Bauer supreme ultrasonic to yellow. Or allow us to change them all to custom colours.

    Goalie:
    leferve (true) equipment
  • Also need to add vintage goalie masks and equipment

    Yes, some great submissions from 4 individuals. Looking for more. What equipment would you like to see?

    Hi, EA_Blueberry. You are wrong, there are a lot of us like that, but all our wishes do not reach the developers, to our great regret.
  • Those vapor 2x color zones that have been wrong for three straight games now would be cool to have fixed.

    A huge number of people follow this topic and the topic is always problematic for the developer and sometimes it seems that all the flaws are just the cause of laziness.
    Goalie equipment, need to add:
    Bauer Vapor 2x with corrected color zones, CCM EFlex 5, Vaughn PVE 2, correct Brian's Retro Air Pack, Lefebvre(True Hockey), CCM EFlex 4 Twig, Bauer Supreme 2S and Bauer UltraSonic Twigs. At the same time, the game still has a line from Koho, which has not existed for several years.
    The developers have not added a second mask for the Colorado Eagles (AHL), the mask for the Saskatoon Blades has not been fixed. In addition, Keith Kinkade has a photo of Joel Lundqvist for some reason. I understand that the developers want to leave at least some part of Henrik Lundqvist in the Rangers system, but this is a stupid fail.

  • Was really surprised to see the Eflex 5’s not make it in.
  • I've noticed with looking at a couple of the pro set-ups from the CCM Axis gear that certain colour zones are not solid, they're almost faded. If you look at David Rittich's Axis gear for the Flames it's not completely solid. 0005_rittich.jpg?quality=100&strip=all&strip=all

    Also the STX Stallion HPR 2 stick is missing from the game. But 100% get the Bauer reakt and CCM tacks 910 helmets and DX SL stick. Ideally all gear would be amazing.

    I’d love to see custom colour zones on sticks such as the Bauer flylite and Nexus and on the stx sticks. But not a huge deal.
  • Sooooo nothing was added in the new patch?? Lots and lots of gear missing.
  • What happened to the Bauer line up? like at least keep those in the game instead of removing them, because half of the new designs resemble those pads (Vasilivesky) has a similar design as the 1S pads...
