New attributes (would have liked some more tho)
Weekly Challenges. I like this and it makes me try other things in the game (modes) that I would not have ordinarily (Pro Am for example).
Basic gameplay: shooting, skating, checking, pickups, etc. seem improved for the most part. Aside from the apparent speed boost (see below) the game feels really good.
Visuals. I have heard complaints about shadows in some rinks but I will say overall I like the visual improvements
Aside from some technical issues that I will assume are bugs and not design problems ( unable to find players to play with, buggy lobby issues etc):My current pet peeve which i hope is temporary but its SO bad I needed to mention it: Trouble finding games/players. Every time I do matchmaking the number of players is "low". Like ALWAYS. Is this accurate? What is it based on/how is it calculated? Tho tbh based on how difficult its been to find a game in any mode, I have to think its more or less accurate sadly. It is my current number one issue playing this game/ It doesnt seem to matter what mode I try either. I have actually wandered off to play something else for this reason.
I feel the game now plays *too* fast. It's now like playing vs where the speed has been cranked up. Maybe I am getting too old, but I find it more difficult to play the game strategically.
I used to enjoy playing "3s" as it was but the new "Battle Royale" mode makes it painful. It would be nice to have the option to just play the old style if I just want to play a few games. There was also an issue finding players but that could just be an issue with what appears to be an all-time low number of people playing this game.
One-timers: Smaller issue but I thought this was supposed to be "fixed" this year. I am still whiffing on some easy 1Ts which I am not all that happy about, but it could be something I am doing...?
Charging is the new slash/trip. I am seeing a LOT more charging calls this year. Has there been a change to how this is calculated? It seems disproportionate and perhaps its "by the book" but its certainly not being called as to how it is IRL.
Still no anti-griefing measures.
