    Also every year in the trailer you claim " We listened to the feedback etc...." But actually listen. It will make the game into a hit if you take time and just read or listen to what the community has to say.

    Sad but true! If they would even take HALF of our suggestions EA would have to start paying the fans. Which is FINE by me considering I spend the time and money EVERY YEAR only to get the same game EVERY YEAR. They would also have to change there trade mark of EA Sports in the game, to EA Sports the fans are in the game. The tag line could be beause we are TOO CHEAP to do our jobs. HA HA!
    • Custom tournament trees - you can create your own world championship tournament or any other local tournament with your own tournament tree and play it online or offline
    • Configurable setting how long the game "remembers" your next action - for example when you ask for a pass from CPU player, it happens too often to me that CPU passes the puck to me and I pass it away. The same happens with one-timers. I wish the game would not buffer my actions for me

    Practice mode for BAP. It could include/look like this team/one-one practice, instead of the practice things they have now. The advance option of this would be for how long you practice your skills should be go up. So you practice 2 hours+ your skill(s) should go up for X percentage of that time. I think every time you practice your skill(s) should go up ABOUT a quarter of the whole skills, or make it harder, you practice TOO LONG your skill or something could go down. Another way to make it harder is possibly practice for 5+ hours to make your skill(s) go up. Although maybe that could have something to do with the difficulty in how you play BAP.

    Got a new idea! Ability to customize/change logos jerseys in franchise mode

    As much as I would LOVE this idea, it won't happen. Simply because EA pays good money for the license to the teams and logos, and that would be a violation of the marketing agreement between the League and EA. I think it'd be cool...Detroit does need a black jersey, people have been saying it for over twenty years

    Worth a shot. Thanks though makes sense.

    I’d love if Franchise Mode would be expanded to European leagues. I think EA has overlooked European leagues for years as they have never received any real role in the game. You can play only season mode with them and never get any trophy at the end of the season. That’s why suggest following:

    - All European leagues added to Franchise Mode. Player can make a contract to any team and also change the team between leagues. Jarmo Kekäläinen became first European GM in NHL few years ago so it’s possible to show your skills in other leagues and then get a chance in NHL. New European Leagues would be cool to see in game as well, such as GET_ligaen, Metal Ligaen, EIHL, Ligue Magnus etc. More second-tier leagues would be great as we have AllSvenskan already in the game.

    - Add real championship trophies like Le Mat Trophy of SHL and Kanada-malja of Finnish Liiga. There should be also presentatio and some narrative about them also. Commentators could mention something about history of the trophies or something like that.

    - As European teams don’t have draft, their player development is based on junior teams. European teams would have junior teams, where they would develop new players. Player can manage the training they get, and then raise them to pro-league if he/she feels they are ready to play against men.

    - EA should also add features to player negotiations. Negotiations should include different matters, which to discuss with the player like: what would be his role in the team? Is he crucial, first line player, or bottom-six two-way player? First or backup goalie? etc. This would add more realism to game as all free agents would be free to negotiate with any team from all of the leagues. For example player who’s stuck in AHL or lower line in NHL, could want a bigger role and ice-time and that’s why sign with a European team, where he would get it. Also players nationality should affect negotiations as well. For example german player is more likely to sign with a team from DEL-league.

    - Add national tournament in Franchise Mode. I understand licence problems with IIHF and such, so the tournament could be a custom national tournament developed by EA, like ”EA Sport International Hockey Tournament.” It would be held every second season, and player could manage his/her own countries national team in it (choose players to play in tournament etc.).

    - Trades and loans between leagues

    - Add real jersey for European Teams. Many of them have some mistakes in them, like wrong colored numbers, or they are just outdated.

    - Many of these features could be added to BAP as well. National team tournament and possibility to play in Europe would be cool to see in BAP. It would be great if I could try to win every leagues championship in BAP career.
  • -Cross play(both platform and generations)
    -Transferable Be A Pro saves
    -Bring back pre-game presentation where your team skates out onto the ice(not a fan of current presentation)
  • Mostly BAP improvements

    1. Allow BAP (and other modes as well) to carry over from version to version NHL21 to NHL22 to NHL23 etc... Kind of sucks to have to recreate your stuff EVERY year and Version. I'm sure for things added each successive release, you should be able to find a way to add them or sum them from the previous versions forward.

    2. Bring BACK being able to progress your BAP player from the 16 Year OLD mark up... I would venture to say that I've seen on these lists from years past that many also would like to see even from of JR Leages back... Which would be AWESOME. BUT, at least bring back the younger player building to the Draft for 2 seasons.

    3. Goes with (2.) Allow the younger BAP to pick the starting year... Allowing for them to gain eligibility at any year... Say I want a player to build in CHL for 2 years I want to ENTER the draft in the 2015-16 DRAFT. Then my player would be starting in the 2013-2014 Season CHL... Historical players may be some what an issue, but then randomize the outcomes to NOT necessarily be the actual DRAFT positions for that year...

    4. Speaking about randomizing... Allow this as an option on the DRAFT positions. Seems no matter what happens in the 3-4 CHL or EHL games you always end up in NHL21 DRAFTED by NYI or LAK... If you want ANY other team you either have to Totally FLUB your games, in Just the Right way... Or just start out there as a REALLY weak Stat player... Even then it's if'y...

    5. Face offs... Please fix the "If you pre-empt the draw EVER so slightly, you just AUTOMATICALLY LOSE THE DRAW"... This shouldn't factor on minor slips. And if the slip is bad enough, add in a replaced in dot with another winger by the Ref...

    6. Better player creation FACES and Face OPTIONS... Yes, something like a FACE DESIGNER would be appreciated.

    7. Crowd Effect and Reputation Effect (play on ice and star quality off ice) should be a factor.

    8. Intermission interviews by press Game Effect. Less obnoxious coach in game with the SAME ASKS. I actually don't mind the coach Ask's, but make them more diverse and relivant...

    9. Between game practices with the TEAM while in BAP... This could be better tied to SKILLS and gives you more insight into working the same plays and looks the individual coaching for your team wants.

    10. I actually think the Ref's should be an obstical option. Meaning that if you choose they Effect the play. Can be in your way, can inadvertently stop a puck or deviate its corse etc... Basically act as if they are any other player type obstical.

    11. Button REMAPPING!!! There are things about the placement of "What does What", on the controller, I'd like to modify... Nuff Said on that...

    12. A BIG Hit should not EVER AUTO generate or force you into a FIGHT... Yeah there are times, but the BAP Player should still have some kind of option to Not Fight and get an Automatic 5min Major...

    13. Need to keep the BAP player better informed of their injuries or areas subject to severe injury better. NHL20 used to at least give you days out (should have been games) but in NHL21 it's a GUESS (unless I missed something?)... Also if your BAP or ANY MODE for that matter Player has injuries or is close to some injury that will put them out. It would be nice to have a heads up on what might exacerbate that injury in game play... This way you can chose to play hard anyway... Or Slow down in those factors that may cause a bad injury. Obviously, some injuries are unavoidable...

    14. Goalies should have more options to play the puck out of the crease, both if that's the BAP player or AUTO when CPU is operating the player. Like going behind the net to direct a puck or start a play.

    15. In BAP mode... It would be nice to know the spectrum of players feelings about you... Or off ice social vibe... Basically break down the TEAM PLAY Numbers to every players temperament with any given player...

    16. Work on ALL the Star/Management/Teamplay factors... I MAX them out regularly. They might be SET a but TOO EASY to achieve (I do this in Pro mode and AllStar mode- have not played much Superstar mode). Add CROWD or PUBLIC... This could also be one that changes depending if you're HOME or AWAY and what teams ICE you're on... CROWD/Public Could be ALL relevant modes too...

    17. Hummmm... Stadium or OUTDOOR games and an ALL-Star game would REALLY be great... Events at an ALLSTAR game could be more of Special Rewards mini-games relivant to skills.

    Pretty much all I have for now... Probably a bit late... but some of this stuff I have seen being asked for every year by myself or others in some form...

    Maybe you guys at EA should read this stuff at a minimum before you sit down and start working on NHL23...???

    Just a thought?

    1.) I'd like to finally see a Championship mode with real dresses and rosters.
    2.) A scripting support. I wanna create my own mods in the game.
    3.) I really want the Winter Classic mode players've been talking about for many years.
  • I'm a simple man... I just want to not lose full CR in online versus when a game goes to OT because 3 on 3 is such a crapshoot. I had a game the other night where I dinged the post on a wide open net and all of a sudden my opponent is on a 3 on 1 the other way because my two players responsible for my great scoring opp. were behind the play. Of course I lost on a 1T.

    Also, if I'm winning a game and I get disconnected, I shouldn't get an L. Give the other guy a W still if you must, but I shouldn't take an L.

    We have to have a loss occur for disconnects or people would manually disconnect just to avoid the L.

    It would seem to me the game could recognize what the score was at the time of the disconnect. If somebody is winning a game, it's a pretty safe bet they're not disconnecting to avoid a loss.

    While in theory that sounds good, it could still be used to ensure you don't lose. If something comes up preventing you from finishing the game, you could just back out safely. What if someone has a decent lead, but they recognize their opponent is outplaying them and making a solid comeback so they decide to quit instead of potentially losing? It's just too open for abuse and we can't have that.

  • A proper 100% real-time and NHL-like realistic presentation without any fadeouts and black frames for an EA next gen hockey game would be nice :)

    Also bring back some licensed TV broadcast graphics and realistic camera stuff.

    Not this "creative" mess.

    Thank you :)
  • Oh, one more :)

    Stop nerfing the puck physics. The game should be improving, not other way around.
  • Id love mini camp drills that are optional but can give players a little stat boost. Like the old madden 04 minicamp drills.
  • Give Kirill “The Thrill" a face - he deserves one!
  • Oh, one more :)

    Stop nerfing the puck physics. The game should be improving, not other way around.

    I don’t think the puck physics are getting worse, they’re just making the receptions and “perfect” feeling of pickups nothing short of automatic for everyone, makes the game really sticky and predictable.

    Remember, we’re making everything perfect, predictable, and insanely forgiving for the “competitive” scene because apparently holding their hand to egregious extents is necessary for “high skilled” demographic of players lol.

    I know, try not to laugh. It’s hard.

    Some kind of line change indicator would be nice. It would be nice to know that the player that's streaking down the boards without a defender anywhere near is going to pull up and hop onto the bench before I hit the button.

    And really, just smarter line changes in general? I lost a game the other night in OT because my opponent intercepted a pass on a 2-on-1 and as he starts racing up the ice, my defender decides he's just going to eff off to the bench, giving my opponent a 2-on-0 and the win.
