    After playing this quite a bit for a few days, I feel overall the gameplay is a lot better than it was after the last tuner (awful). Skating is better, the CPU can't just steal the puck by looking at you. A much welcomed change is that my D-man will actually try to make a play on the puck now when I'm in good position, I feel like the CPU and I have equal chance at that now which is a MAJOR improvement (previously pucks would go right by my guys whereas the CPU would intercept the most extreme passes). The only thing left is to turn down the penalties. They're pretty ridiculous right now on both the player and the CPU. One more tweak there and I'd be really happy personally.

    Hello EA, thanks for this patch, however, skating is still slow and therefore the new RPM feature is not visible. When I'm playing my offline season vs. All stars (competitively), opponent is still ahead and my players are still lagging behind almost in every situation. It's really hard or impossible to get a breakaway and when you have a luck, you are too slow and your opponent is always faster so you don't have any chance to score. Please, if it is possible, give us more speed, the game is too slow. Btw, lock position in HUT vs. CPU is still not possible, please fix this. How can I invite my friends to play HUT vs. CPU with me when we cannot lock to the position?!
    I forgot one thing, edit player in Season mode is not possible. Always was there. Please fix this. Many thanks!

  • Thanks for give us back the goalie's 1st mask of Carolina.

    In HUT, it's really cool to feature player's cards when we score a goal . It's a good idea.

    The patch is great, but I believe that there should have been an update for the Ottawa Senators Center ice logo. The Senators went back to their old logo for their Center ice this season. It’s just my suggestion.

    On another note, because EA did not update the Center ice logo for the Ottawa Senators I went back to playing a bit of NHL 15. It just doesn’t make much sense to me that the other NHL teams can get their Center ice logos updated but the Senators could not get theirs. Also, after the first intermission, it looks like the ice at the Canadian Tire Center has not even been flooded after the first period.. as weird as this sounds it is true. I am a big time Sens fan, my birthday is coming up next Wednesday and I would be so freaking happy if the Senators Center ice logo was updated. I hope EA updates this very soon.

    Thanks EA!

    For every tuner that comes out the game gets worse. More penalties from the ai than ever. Skating is back to nhl 18 and the ai cannot score on me no matter the difficulty. How us it possible to mess a game up like this when it was actually good when it came out.. Really sad i cant play it anymore :(

  • Some good improvements but a couple of negatives regarding gameplay, you are now unable to check someone off the puck at lower speeds, now people skate around with their back to you which makes for unrealistic gameplay. Also goalies are weaker, again this results in short side exploit goals. Otherwise game is going in right direction thanks
  • whatever this patch was made my game unplayable online. 1 to 2 second delays,
  • Please put in some sort of international tournament like you did before. Whether it's the World Cup of hockey or the EA world championship thing you've done on Olympic sized ice in the past. Those were fun. And allow some fighting in the tournaments. And as regards to the legends please put them in this game in offline playermoves, roster management and trades. I'd like to put these 275 plus players on each team and make franchise/season mode interesting and fun. Please do that. We paid a lot of money for this game and it's frustrating not knowing what's going on with them. Also please update the international jerseys. Put some new ones in.
  • I think the next super patch should be for next year. 1st take this game and split it. Put all your SIMS hockey life stuff along with the sleazy use your parents credit card to win HUT trash together. Then make the other half the online player build OTP game, club, ect. Separate the two, two different CDs, two different downloads. Then give all the HUT moans their easy to beat AI players, they did in fact pay who knows how much to get that Crosby card so he better score everytime. Then for all the OTP moans, buff the hell out of the AI. Goalies, forwards, defenders, as AI players should play like 99 whomever, so that us humans with IRL hockey IQs can actually get some sick plays done and play competeivly. I know how the AI works, it plays off my positioning, but I'm talking about, goalie pulled AI does nothing for a puck 5 ft away, and all those fun AI moments. Give human goalies the opportunity to play with their view ever so slightly, I realize this isn't possible for skaters but it should be for keepers. If I pull myself as goalie, I should have the option to control the extra skater and on delayed penalties, this could be a menu option as it could not be for every goalie. How many times this 19 version have I seen a huge check just so the checked player lays on the puck only to get up and skate off with it again? You have to add some kind of stun, it doesn't need to be the injury everytime but no player should get back the puck in that situation, losing stamina is nothing when we have Call Of Duty player perks to give that back. Take out the faceoff perk and give all FORWARD builds the same flat faceoff number of 80 or 85...whatever it is. In 3v3 there should be no puck play trap for goalies, we should be able to help more if the opportunity presents itself. My skate to the bench on delayed penalties takes 9 sec, this is garbage. For F-bomb sake, put back in touch icing, your system now is the correct rule, but........games take to long to search to have extra whistles, add a level of hustle to the game that makes the stamina bar more important, you have girl characters in the game so you can't tell us it is about being authentic to the game(although we can't take you to court for icing like that chick threatened you). So spent on seeing fan faces or a cabin in the snow after every whistle, you boys/girls on DEV are smart, give us a hit or save replay, not a goal as most people watch their goal replays anyhow. Give goalies home and away color options on their pads, if I'm some made up SIMS pro or OTP top team, I want to look good at home and on the road. I also think I should get to choose my flavor of Gatorade on my net, that's a joke relax, but the SIMS players might want that one.....please buff the goalies laterals just a bit more, human goalies should not be op, but I think you have abused us enough so how about some love for the goalies? It could change all the AI glitch garbage if we can get more human tendies. Change to CR from team W's and L's to what CR means, how competitive was THE player in the game, did you give or take 8 body checks, bad passing, penalties, ect...I know you think you are cleaver getting free labor from us giving you your future ideas and breakthroughs, but come on EA DEVs, hanging a mouthguard out the mouth is hardly choking the chicken for me, please listen to all these people, use the good ideas and pull this game out of this spiral, you know it and those of us that have played this game for a decade see it is dying, and it has a lot to do with you not knowing your customers as well as not listening to them in the past. For us real life ex hockey players, give us a playground again, let's us dream through our eyes and finger tips whether that is with daddies credit in SIMS hockey or in a sweaty competitive player build OTP setting. I'm asking as well as begging you EA DEVs, pull the nose up, I think you have a few more seasons before no one believes you will make this game great again.
  • Please have the legends ready by next patch. This is now November. I really don't want to wait anymore. We were promised to play with legends and the offline overall ratings for the legends were advertised. I'm itching to put Gretzky, Messier, leetch, graves and many others on my favorite team as well as spreading them out throughout the game. But the only way I can do that and the rest of us can do that is if those players are in player movement/ roster moves. Please have them ready and let us know if and or when we can start moving them around in offline.

    Hi there EA developers and decision makers.
    It's so sad that you change the game so drastically in such a short time after release.
    Do you actually believe in this "we listen to the community and adapt" thing? Just because some users complain about something doesn't mean others are unhappy about it. The best players in the world (and lets be honest, most of them are boring as hell in play-style, playing like robots, using exploits to score) are complaining and you adapt? I was so happy when the game was released, that FINALLY I COULD HIT players who were exploiting the fact that you can't hit players who turn their backs or protecting the puck. For years, this has been one of the biggest problems regarding gameplay. It worked so good at first after release and now you change it back?! It's sad and disappointing.
    People were so happy with the game as it was. Why change it so drastically? Dont you have any belief in yourselves? You release a product, you should stick to your believes and stop listening to the exploit-droids! This new modern iterative way of "tuning" the game so drastically every now and than is not sustainable in long run!
    This video from Bacon says it all. And just look at the comments on YouTube, dear EA, not just these forum topics where the NHL droids turn to, just for you to tweak the game to their favor:

    I had great hopes for this game and it is disappointing that it's gone back to what 18 was as for Bacons video he was dead on, guys were complaining about it being a harder game to play because they couldn't score or skate around in circles just looking for one times or that cheesy short side wrister again I'll say that this game is boring and tedious to play every game plays out the same
  • Offline legends please
  • Just got the trailer for the HUT jerseys. They would look better if HUT just went away. Offline please. Also when will legends be available? Please be ready to have them by the next patch this month.
  • Just got out of some games... gameplay feels terrible... delayed poke checks... can't block shot with the defensive stick... stick lift back like nhl 18 always penalties and no fluid enough, pass speed is ridiculous... shots are overpowered. Only good point is the bringing back of effecients deflections. The skating feels awful too... too fast its like the game can't run with the current sliders and tune-up on the new engine you builded... it feels broken in every way. And all we can do is poke checks spam and big hit de get the puck back. It's not hockey... it's 25 cents arcade game.
  • Any word on the error codes issue in eashl? I’m in a couple leagues and it’s a effecting me and my team severely since I can only get into one in ever 4-5 games so that means trying to match up against the other team for 1h, games been out for a long time and I paid money to play this one game mode mostly and it’s not being fixed, please make this a priority over other issues like skating and penalties
  • Still getting dressing room errors all the time in club and drop in. Seems to happen in 6s. Just tonight I got 4 errors in a row trying to play a game. This is a joke. I'm on PS4. Please patch these issues!

  • One unique thing that I thought was interesting was the ability to play with injured players like in madden. Selecting whether they could still play or not. Could we have that again? Also offline legends are so we can play them in franchise/season mode please?
