    But that's because it has hard competition - this game has none?

    For them to stop selling NHL at a AAA pricepoint. NHL is following a year behind NBA Live in everything they do, the new NHL "world of chel" mode was literally in NBA last year as "The One". That game sells for $40 at launch and honestly its a much more polished, and in depth game.

    They did that to try and lure people back into their game and away from 2Ks. NBA Live 19 is $60 again.

    NBA Live also has to compete with NBA 2K. Most likely that's why you saw it for $40 at launch. Wasn't The One more of a career mode though? Ones isn't really claiming to be any kind of career mode like The One did.
  • My main wishes are for EASHL as thats mainly what i play.
    1. Make the AI a little less dumb.. i cant understand how that many times saros can turn into the goalie to go behind the net and put it in the net.
    2. Hitting into the bench... through the glass.
    3. Allow us to create our own player builds with providing all the points up front so no grinding is needed.. still even playing field.
    4. Let me pick from a pool of AI players with different builds or let me create my own AI players.
    5. Fix the AI catch up where they fly past you to get the icing call or catch you in 80% of breakaways.
    6. Please do something with this machine gun poke checking.

  • EASHL:

    1.) Full customization for player builds

    2.) Bring back practice mode

    3.) Bring back captains/assistants

    4.) Bring back community where you can try and find players to play there

    Franchise:

    1.) Hire/Fire Coaches, scouts....So probably real life coaches added, and generated scouts. Coaches can have a postive/negative affect on players' attributes. Scouts with experience cost more money, but also find better players later in drafts, more accurate, etc.


    Roster/Editing/Creating.:

    1.) Roster share so we don't have to deal with the God awful roster updates that need to be fixed anyway.

    2.) More player likeness; as in MORE GAME FACES.

    3.) More player faces and ability to edit NHL faces if they don't have a life-like face

    4.) More name pronounciations

    One Thing That Should Change For The Crowd In Arenas, Is Maybe Have Some Of The Crowd Wear The Jersey That The Team Their Cheering For And The Rest Of The Crowd Wear Random Jerseys. To Make Arenas More Authentic. Like If Toronto Is Wearing Their Arenas Jersey In A Game, Some Of The Crowd Would Wear That Jersey. And If There's Road Team Fans, Like Say That Toronto's Opponents Are The Montreal Canadiens, And The Canadiens Are Wearing Their 100 Classic Jerseys, Some Of The Road Team Fans Would Maybe Wear It As Well. What Do You Guys Think On The Idea?

  • Offline BAGM

    - Goalie Injuries during games
    - Getting kicked out of face-offs
    - Live refs that get in the way (can be turned on or off like it was in 2K hockey)
    - Before and after game interviews
    - Intermission that shows big hits, goals and highlights from other games (like 2K NFL from a long time ago did)

    Some other items I would like to see
    - More stat overlays between plays during games
    - Better (and more aggressive) AI
    - Full control over all teams so I can make trades in the middle of a franchise year to emulate real life trades.
  • Another Thing, Maybe Have NHL Mascots Where The Jersey That The Home Team Is Wearing, Like Maybe Have Calton The Bear From The Leafs, At The Scotiabank Arena, And Maybe The Team Wears The Winter Classic Jerseys.
  • I want a lot more in franchise mode. Make it more realistic.

    I would like to see the ability to ask a team what they want for a player and the team comes back with trade options like what mlb has.
    I also would like to be able to tell a team that I don't want their player so they will stop offering the same player.

    Ability to trade future conciderations
    Ability to sign players that PTOs
    Ability to create a do 3 way trades
    Ability to put a player on the trade block and hit search for trades and get trade offers. Possibly only do this at the trade deadline and offseason just to be more realistic.

    Contract negotiations and trades have more of a back and forth feeling where you offer something and they come back with some tweeks or reason why they decline

    Well written, and some of my wishes you listed are in. We want more depth feel in NHL !

    Approximately as my wish. I want a negotiation button. For example .... I ask a Team for a player and they should tell me what they want from my Team in excange or maybe that he is not for trading. This can be three times to and back between the Teams before a Trade is finalized or canceled. Its like in real NHL business too.
  • EASHL:

    Amen.

    To point 1.) I guess he means Face scan app and pic upload app for pics in player profile to complete a player. Than its a full customization for a player build. And he is right !
  • In NHL 3s drop in. Give the option to play another game with your pick up team. And make a pond hockey arena...8’ x 4’ plywood boards, octagonal style corners
  • Legends in offline, you know...what was expected in this version of the game.
  • why are the arenas that are available in EASHL not available in create a team? that makes zero sense.

    I play HUT and Franchise the most, with some Three's and One on One in World of Chel from time to time. Here's what I'm hoping for:

    Overall gameplay
    • For the love of all things that are good, fix obstruction penalties. I know there are two sides to this argument, but even the tripping animations look absurd. Of course if you're poking at the puck carrier from behind the only thing that should happen besides you not getting the puck is maybe a trip, but maybe it should be the former more often than a penalty.
    • Please make dump and chase an actual option for the average player.
    • Because dump and chase isn't a great option to attack, players circle around until they have a lane. When I get burned by this kind of play where eventually one side is open down the boards, and a player is able to drive the net and score, it's terrible.
    • AI when opponents come out of the corner is awful. You don't see a lot of NHL goals where there is a player either circling or battling in the corner and all of a sudden there's an unopposed lane to the net. And why don't goalies ever try to poke check when this happens?
    • Fix the Y/Triangle button with holding against the boards. It's too difficult to create a battle, and this leads to a lot of unnecessary boarding penalties because of a lack of a useful alternative.
    • Make momentum more accurately reflected when the carrier isn't moving their feet. I've still seen players glide an entire zone of the ice without taking any strides, and when that's the case it's unrealistically difficult to take them off of the puck without committing a penalty.

    World of Chel:
    • Simplify the navigation. Other game modes have gotten better since the beta and game release, but why do I have to hit "ready" or "start matchmaking" so many times? The appeal to world of chel is it's a dumbed down version of the game, and far more "arcade" style.
    • A broad wish here, but integrate NHL players more beyond the circuit. Maybe you can play as NHL players in game modes as an achievement?

    Franchise Mode:
    • What on earth is the point of simming a game and watching the sim as it happens if you can't intervene? The lack of being able to intervene is one of the biggest omissions in this game IMO. To remove a feature like this after it was one of the first games to utilize it, I just can't understand.
    • The expansion draft worked pretty well, and I played as the Quebec Nordiques for a long time. Some slight tweaks would include: ability to use existing jerseys or tweak existing teams' jerseys. Life would've been easier using the Avs older jerseys in creating this team. I wasn't able to figure out how to change the teams' division, if that's possible, so I ended up in the Central in the West -- which didn't make sense. Alignment and the ability to choose different structures for playoff/division would be cool.
    • Customize/Change your goalies masks! This is especially frustrating with the expansion team. Everything looks great with my jerseys except my tendy has some ugly gray and black mask. I can't even choose a flat white or black color that would look better.
    • Trades work well enough -- I do get tired of the trade block always resetting my wants to ages 17-23 no matter what type of player. I'd like to see more minor trades proposed by the computer, and I get tired of the trade block as gospel for who's available and who's not. If I wanted a team's scrub third pair AHL d-man for some reason, I don't want to hear he's "unavailable" unless I wow them with an offer.
    • I love the fact that you don't know overalls for sure, but some ratings declines were crazy. Crosby, Malkin, and Ovechkin all continued to play until they were around 75-78 overall in my franchise.
    • Bring back the trade deadline from years ago. Make it an event where there are a bunch of deals as the deadline approaches. Sometimes I get no offers the day of the deadline.
    • Free agency can continue to get better. Negotiations are kind of lame. Make this more of a skill.
    • Player morale needs a refresh -- I find this to be some kind of random, boring aspect of the game mode.
    • Player stats - please add team when it shows a player's full stats. I'd like to be able to see how long we've had players on our team and what their stats are with us rather than just by league.

    HUT
    • Can we please get rid of contracts? Madden did it, and it makes things so much more enjoyable when it comes to setting lineup and managing a team. I do enjoy the loan players -- maybe expand that or continue with that element. I can live with injuries/healing cards, and I do like injuries in game keeping it interesting and forcing players to focus on depth when building a team.
    • HUT Challenges - can we make some of these non-full game challenges? A few years back there were NHL scenario games that came out each week or each month, that would be more fun than always having 3 star challenges. IE let's say this week the Rangers-Islanders game, Isles won 7-5, you have to play the challenge when it was 6-5 and try to come back as the Rangers?
    • Sets are difficult to target without buying packs with microsoft points, IMO. Madden has managed to find a balance and has its players that buy plenty of packs, then someone like me who refuses to buy DLC in a game like this. I'm not as interested in 90+ overall players, but give me some options and player cards to target as goals to keep me interested. This year I probably won't still be playing HUT in a month or two.
    • Keep the alumni coming, I love that. Not quite a legend, but certainly players I'd like to use on my teams.
  • Oh, and please please please put some effort into making the players faces look better, give us more real player faces, and more realistic "generic" looking faces. Some of these guys look like they got stung by a bee under both of their eyes.
  • I just wish for a game that you can pick up and open any mode and play. The amount of error codes I've gotten is insane.

    Also, would it hurt to just keep the game the way it was at Beta/launch? I mean almost everyone enjoyed that.

    Urgently a face scan import from EA website. There is an EA site for face scanning in the net. Add more faces, hair styles to the game and open the editing function that we can edit. Urgently and since years necessary.
