Probably the most underwhelming franchise release yet?

Prev134
No PC.
No frostbite.
No new mechanics.
A BR mode that nobody asked for.

    so... nothing?

    Same ol "improved puck pickups" and "reworked goalie ai to pay attention to everything... again... still... more" and some new shooting animations, a new way to ignore ones and some challenges?

    Having a hard time conveying my feelings and staying free from the swear filter. I hope you're holding back and you didn't miss ea play for "unlock your style".

    It says goalies are improved with the new AI. Show me where they’re improved with these screenshots. Goalies are still garbage. I’ll pass plus no PC. Thanks but no thanks ea devs.

    They think it would change things.

    I don’t want frostbite, I want Unreal. Way easier for devs and is also up there in graphics.

    EA is so completely out of touch with its players. Who is coming up with these idiotic and unwanted ideas? Does Madden have battle royale? Fifa? NBA? Do those franchises have 1's equivalents? No. Why? Because they're stupid ideas. People have been asking for everything but what they're putting into the game. Honestly, I've never seen a gaming company that is so embarrassingly out of touch with its player base.

    Couldn’t agree more. So sad what this franchise has become. David Littman was better.

    Little to no interest in the new customizable balaclavas, hats, apparel, or “Battle Royale” mode. Would rather more customization in club, player faces, etc.

    Community wanted custom goalie masks? Didn’t get it

    Community wanted more faces scanned? Didn’t get it

    Community wanted a single player upgrade to Be A Pro and upgrades to Be A GM?
    Didn’t get it

    Community wanted upgraded graphics?
    Didn’t get it

    Community wanted better stadium atmosphere?
    Didn’t get it

    on the new features list it said goalie got 200 new save animations/puck cover animations but on the reveal trailer they looked exactly the same..movements and save animations. same thing it has been for almost 4-5 yrs now.

    You aren't looking at the big picture obviously. There is a reason Sony didn't go to E3 this year. There is a reason Microsoft didn't show off lots of new games at E3..... the next-gen consoles are next year.

    That is why NHL added a battle royale type thing from an already existing mode. It's the gimmick of the game for 20. They did announce a new broadcast team which they said Doc n Eddie only got like 30hrs of time for them, while the new group has like 300hrs of time put in. They dropped the whole NBC Sports thing because well you gotta adhere to what is allowed and isn't by their standards. They made some gameplay changes and added some new things.

    I'm not saying NHL 20 is gonna be amazing, but I merely hope they learned their lessons from NHL 15 going next-gen. So when they have to bring things over it would have been a waste to have GM Connected,Frostbite, or the game on PC this year. But it's merely hopes for NHL 21 that they are actually prepared when the time comes.

    So they get a new "game director" for a game a couple of years ago. The one that worked on the Need for speed game. And we know where this game is right now :(

    You talk about same as my wishes are. 100% agree. This game is going complete other direction as the NHL fanbase wants. So many talking to go more authentic direction and they do the opposite.
  • Also I cant believe clown gear and outdoor rinks are back. I hardly ever play dropins but I thought all the dropin players hated the new outdoor rink and clown gear. Plus, its so dumb how after you hit level 50 in EASHL you wont get any hockeybags from playing 3s or 6s. I'm level 50 now and only half half the stuff unlocked and there is no way Im gonna play ONES to get more bags. Why not just make it you keep getting hockeybags till you unlock everything instead of stop giving them out in 3s/6s once you hit level 50?

    EA seems to want draw more casual gamers into the game, since they keep losing the hardcore hockey fans... too bad casual gamers aren't interested in hockey at all, it's just too niche. So all you got is your hardcore hockey fans. Make the game for us.

    If you make the game good, then word gets around, and even casuals get it. You got it the wrong way around.

    I agree with you but I'm fine with trying to bring in casual or new fans, I just think they do it the wrong way. Make your steady fanbase happy with features and gameplay first. Free on ea access and xbox live gold is good like they did. Start having a presence at ea play in front of all those new and casual eyeballs. Dont make your game invisible and then disappoint your hardcore fans too.

    I'm still hoping there are a lot of quality of life improvements that we haven't heard yet or in practice the seamless blabla improvements we talk about every year are actually a significant difference this year.

    I sometimes wonder if this team is the same one responsible for RBI Baseball. There's a reason by MLB The Show sells like 1000 times more copies, gets great reviews even when they don't do much to improve the game, and is acknowledged as the leader in their genre ... More than anything, it's because they strive to make their game based on the actual real sport. It's not an unrealistic arcade monstrocity with gimmick modes.

  • I’m sure the auction house will still not be real time bidding. Hey place a bid and keep backing out then back in. That’s some playing there.
