Why are these again restricted to only the super arcadey modes of 1's, three's and drop in's. I play EASHL only with friends and would love to be able to earn these outdoor rinks as our home rink. One of your biggest features of last year was those rinks and you seemingly limited their use to a very small percentage of your consumer base. And youre intentionally doing that again?

Let me get my Mystery, Alaska on.

(I am basing this off this game informer article that says the outdoor rinks are limited to those game modes) (https://www.gameinformer.com/preview/2019/06/19/breaking-down-the-16-biggest-changes-coming-to-nhl-20)

  • I am the opposite. I want to get rid of them for drop-in and play in a proper arena. At least give us the option to play how we want.

    Yeah I dont really get why certain modes are being forced to play on certain ice surfaces. Id love to play some games with the aesthetic of the outdoor rinks but apparently I am not allowed to.

    Will there be any commentary in drop ins or just the same tiring silence with more Eastern European festival music

    Agree 100%, however I'm sure 20 is about done and it's going to be 19 version 2.

    Yea was so incredibly quiet. Much better this year but prefer arena and full gear honestly.
  • No one I know of ever liked the drop in 6's change to take away an entire aspect of the game from us. There's nothing resembling the NHL now in it.

    Not just the NHL, but every team in the game as well. It was a good way to use other teams jerseys (ECHL, SHL, Liiga, CHL) you wouldn’t normally use outside of HUT. If you don’t play HUT, adding new leagues is only good for franchise players or people like myself who edit rosters. Never get to see the jerseys/logos in action
