    The biggest problem is the server delays. I have almost never experienced a game in the same way as I do playing AI. Usually it feels like playing in quicksand. The rest of the details of the game is not a problem as long as the god damn servers are fixed. Who cares if the Nashville mascot has a carrot out of his ear or what Jerseys are missing. Fix the servers!

    Well, strictly offline guys don't give a single damn about servers.

    Us defensemen used to have tools. NHL 13 I think was very defensive centric. Biggest benefit was allowing for shoving people out of the slot so you wouldn't have forwards just sitting there waiting for a pass, people had to skate around and make plays happen with good puck movement. Goalies were also on point with saves.

    But people complained. Games typically were only 1-4 goal games (combined) and all the arcade style players whined and complained until most of that was nerfed so they (the arcaders) could do their dumb gameplay again and I believe in 14 the ability to clear out the slot was removed in favour of the net battle crap we have now.

    Having a proper means to remove standing players in the slot would be a godsend to have reimplemented. It would remove the current usual tactic of just rushing the net hoping for a dirty goal as the standard scoring tactic.

  • L2 needs to be toned down quite a bit. You can't skate full speed in hockey and pivot over and over while having the puck on a string. You would lose the puck or be knocked over. Remove pivots from penalty shots altogether. Should be an Automatic no goal if it is used.

    You also need to make it easier to be knocked down while performing a pivot and have way less much control.

    Passes get intercepted from backwards facing defenders all the time. Needs to be fixed.

    Computer goalies online are terrible.

    You also need to figure out something for people killing time in Threes. You should have a timer for sitting behind the net in that mode. Its become boring to play against people who go up by one awful L2 goal and then sit behind the net. Either way, something needs to change. Its not like 3s is real hockey, so why not add your own rules like how you changed penaltiss to penalty shots. Give a PS if you stop behind the goal line for more than three seconds if there is no attacker. Force people to keep moving, keeping the game moving.

    Leksands IF in the SHL has got new jerseys as well.... the jerseys of Leksands IF currently in the game is not being used at all anymore. The new jerseys got a whole new color scheme
  • Flashing the powerplay animation on score clock is annoying. The location is already annoying enough. At least put a tiny transparent clock in the top corner so we can see the time quickly. Nobody looks down in hockey to see the time, either.

    While I agree that the server delays should be fixed, there are A LOT of people that DO care about the correct jerseys being in the game. Presentation is part of the entire package. Ask a Vancouver fan about the wrong logo being on the away jersey or a Carolina fan having to wait to use a newly redesigned away jersey (though I am aware those have been put in with the new patch). Those things drive people like us absolutely nuts, especially if you're playing Franchise mode.
  • How can you say the gameplay is in a good spot right now when goalies are absolutely incompetent on cross ice passes close to goal, poke checks still target the skates instead of the puck, and players can skate in circles in the offensive zone faceoff circles without any chance of losing the puck because you can’t poke check them and they are invincible to hits?

    L2 needs to be reverted back to when it was not nearly as easy to abuse.

    Fix the one-timer aim, what are we doing here? We have lost games because we get nice, open shots that just go right into the goalie's center mass, even though we are aiming on the other side of the net.

    Make 5 hole goals slightly less prominent on users goalies. I feel like most of the goals I see are 5 hole.

    How has no one mentioned the insane 20 second scrambling of turnovers in front of any net? That happens too often and needs to be addressed somehow. It is definitely not a smooth animation for anyone, and renders defense almost useless during these times. I find myself just not pressing anything and waiting for the nonstop turnovers/bounces to seize.

    My personal opinion would be to increase hooking/slashing slightly. I have seen a couple of crazy stick lifts, but other than that.. it's not terrible.

    3s elimination should have 3 users only, no mascot for club players. If you don't have 3 and you attempt to play through club, it counts you as a drop-in group.

    Hitting could be cleaned up a bit, but not a huge issue.
  • Who needs the NHL standings in Calender ? We need to open past games in Calender to watch our game statistics.

    The shadows in drop in games from the tree’s is very distracting perhaps removing the shadows would make the rink 100% clear

    Franchise mode has locked up on me 4 times while trying to complete the expansion draft since installing the update!
  • It would be really great if EA could add NHL Legend Maurice Richard and Bobby Orr to this years game, possibly through a roster update. Also if possible in Franchise mode please fix the commentating so that when scoring a goal with an NHL Legend, the announcers, mainly Ray Ferraro doesn't make it seem like they're some rookie scoring their first NHL goal.
  • Guys , big issue since the latest update : in the broadcast , it's say " first career goal " for all players goal since today ??

  • For years ea has given us the same old lack luster goalie masks. Annoying as hell. No imagination whatsoever.Some of us play multiple seasons and the lack of options regarding goalie masks is frustrating. I understand about licensing issues...but making a customization system similar to what Forza uses would make a world of difference. Same goes for coaches....why not let us have the option of editing them like we can in player creation. I’d also like to see a similar in season uniform creator.....playing with the same jerseys season after season is boring and unrealistic.......C’mon EA sports....it’s in the Game!

    This was in before the patch. But it's unbelievable, they didn't fix something like that.

  • The fact this team thinks gameplay is good where it stands should further prove they have no grasp on what the community wants
  • Flashing the powerplay animation on score clock is annoying. The location is already annoying enough. At least put a tiny transparent clock in the top corner so we can see the time quickly. Nobody looks down in hockey to see the time, either.

    I don't think I've actually noticed that yet lol. Heck, I barely even notice the score clock at the bottom. I could see it being a problem if I primarily played defense in CHEL though, as it would be closer to where my vision is focused.
  • NHL Goalie "Art" NEEDS to be updated.
    This includes helmet art, equipment type/style, and color schemes.
    A prime example of this would be Pekka Rinne. Last year towards the end of the regular season he transitioned over to using a primarily navy colored pads with gold inlays. However, in the game he is still equipped with the old primarily white pads with navy and gold inlays. Small updates like this make the game more realistic and enjoyable for everyone. Copy and paste. Copy and paste. Copy and paste starts to get old when it comes to these sort of strategic details. But people notice these small changes and cosmetically it makes a big difference to the fans of hockey and the EA Sports franchise as a whole. Simple / easy fix and would be stoked to see it happen.

    Can you please fix the spinning off hits issue that has been an issue since NHL 19?

    I get that you can sometimes spin off hits, but the rate at which players in EASHL/HUT can just spin off EVERY hit by turning their back to you and using LT/A button is just ridiculous and makes for very fake unrealistic hockey play.

    I thought it would've been fixed from the get go in NHL 20 but it still continues to be a major problem that hasn't been fixed.

    ---

    Another issue is the glitch where the home team in EASHL can continually slash you after the whistle to cause a faceoff in their offensive zone even if they original faceoff was in their defensive end.. numerous teams have done this to my team and its quite annoying.

    Just wanna add that the faceoff glitch/exploit has been an issue since NHL 19 so the fact that its still in NHL 20 is quite a disappointment since it was a KNOWN issue then.
