Scoreboard is ridiculous

  • The game is played looking upwards, there it makes sense for the scoreboard to be up the top of the screen.

    I get they're trying to freshen it up, but this wasn't required, I appreciate people don't always like change but I don't think it's that, it just doesn't belong at the bottom.
  • It is horrible and absolutely intrusive especially on D.

    Give me the option to make it really tiny if I want, where I want it to be (such as top right, top left, bottom left, etc...) and adjust its opacity. Very small, top left and barely visible is all I really need.

    Gamebreaking at this point.
  • I'll add my vote to the 'nay' side on the scoreboard as well.

    As @mattnjon mentioned, having the scoreboard at the bottom makes quickly looking at it ( mostly for time left in the period ) awkward. There's no reason to be different just for the sake of it.

    At a minimum we need the choice of where the scoreboard goes. Ideally we'd have more control over size and fade in/out as well.

    That is exactly what it feels like the change came from. It makes no sense what they've done other than "being different".

    My buddies ended up turning the scoreboard off and just ask me for the score and time. The size, location and flashing all frustrate me. I will eventually get used to it, but I will never like it. Really needed to make sure options to resize and move it to where wanted was implemented before changing the scoreboard.

    So does that mean we can look forward to a customizable scoreboard for NHL 22? Any talks of it happening sooner?

    Haha couldn't tell you. I hope it makes it high enough on the priority list to get another look, but other than that we just got to find a way to work with it for now.

    On another note, can we get more info on how these new goalie changes affect humans? We supposedly can redirect shots, and it gives the impression we have control over that, but I don't see any info anywhere.

    In 20, the deeper you are in your net the more likely you are to get sniped. The idea was to reward better positioning and angles from human goalies. The goalie will automatically redirect shots. The only thing that didn't affect human goalies from all the changes is the "Threat Analysis" this is just for AI.

    Fereli, am I correct to assume that your D and Goalies turned the scoreboard off, and are asking forwards to announce the time?

    Last year's "small" scoreboard would've been fine if they enlarged the active area near it to make it disappear.

    Yes you are! Both D and my Goalie buddies ended up turning it off.

    Man however the scoreboard got signed off as a good idea blows my mind. I can see the group that approved that “oh it’s so pretty!” rubber stamp of approval do your best.

    I don’t care where the scoreboard is bottom or top. But it’s just like a status bar in a FPS it should be there for info and shouldn’t distract during play. The extra effects during the Powerplay OMG why the equalizer effect is needed I will never know.

    But for the love of all things holy let me see the player indicators.

    Cant count the times I have lost track of my player cause my indicator vanishes.

    I haven’t had to swap views in game so much it’s ever so frustrating.

    the scoreboard has been crap for years. its always too big and in the way. there will prob be an option to put it on top and also an option to make it smaller. but my bigger issue is that a 5 min period displays 20 mins and counts down super fast so you never know how much time is left. I don't understand how I don't have the option to display real time on the scoreboard. ea is effed this up for over a decade by not giving us the option but hey, we all know its ea so who is surprised?

  • I love the scoreboard! I play goalie and now the scoreboard is not it my vision when the puck was in the top left corner of my screen. It was a screen to me playing the game
  • The scoreboard is better now!!! Way less ice being covered
  • This scoreboard idea is not bad.
    If half size, place up/bottom, opacity level , pp flash off,
    showed stats under line, if the all of them is optionable, right?
  • I think the simple fix is moving it to the top.

    Not a fan of this scoreboard either. I just wish you could have an option to select old layout
  • I think the simple fix is moving it to the top.

    I think it will be intrusive for forwards up top.

    Forwards should have it down by default, defenders up top by default. My 2 cents.
