    Any plans to include some of the more popular and newer equipment like the Bauer Re-Akt 95 and 150, Warrior Covert RS and the new CCM Tacks helmets?

    Can we please get more details on the bolded part?


    Read some of my stuff at www.sportsprowler.com
  • So nothing about LT abuse. Nothing about pass interceptions. No fix for the score board overlay. Nothing about getting stuck in a one timer animation on interceptions. Nothing about bogus tripping calls. Nothing about OP puck control when defending any player. I'm sure I missed some but what are you guys thinking?
  • I saw something about the self sauce glitch being fixed, on reddit. No mention here.

    Is it part of the package?
  • Hmmmmmm

    "Improvements to covers for pucks underneath the goaltender"

    Please tell me this is that horrid cover glitch that's been fixed. It was driving me nuts
  • I thought they said they'd be adding/fixing commentary in interviews this year? Fixing Replays and Interceptions?

    I guess LT abuse fits into their "sim" vision of hockey... The fact that none of these issues were addressed is a joke.
  • I still don’t understand why I can’t have the Sabres 50th anniversary jerseys...this makes no sense
  • So the scoreboard still blocks 10% of the vertical space in EASHL? Cool. I hope maybe that gets fixed in the next few updates...
  • Its pretty clear after this update that they dont give a crap about the opinion of anyone over the age of 15 that isnt a twitch streamer living it up in their moms basement. If you want any semblance of actual hockey, youve come to the wrong place and play the wrong video game.

    The L2 abuse and puck control issues and all that should have been fixed weeks ago, but its clear as day they want that bullcrap in the game. They dont want people playing actual hockey, so Im done.

    Seeing that every single game I play says LOW population while searching, Im sure alienating your extremely niche but dedicated fan base is a brilliant business decision.

    Or the new TRUE helmet...

    Or new goalie pads...

    Or...
  • Mike, would you know any reason why different users in my house have access to jerseys I don’t? No one seems to ever want to answer my question

    It's not fixed and they made the camera wonky feeling at least from my experience in playing HUT/Versus. I guess the camera tries to center itself better

    LB still works
    EASHL glitch that does something still exists too
    And pretty much anything else you guys wanted changed didn't get changed.
  • Come to realize that EA likes all these glitches to be in the game

    Covers weren’t fixed but hugging the post and holding down then letting down go makes your goalie slide way out of your net

    Just put goalies back to how they were. With every update I have to get used to more flaws in the game.
  • WoW! Another update patch and you haven't made EASHL any better? Good Lord what is it going to take to get you to fix your broken game? Not sure how much longer I and others are going to wait around before giving up on this game completely. Already have almost my full club not wanting to play till a update patch fixes the sliders. Not sure what to tell them after this "patch" which literally didn't fix anything. In it's current state, this game is just downright frustrating after only playing a few games. I've never been so frustrated and short tempered with a game and I've owned every game since '93.
  • Yo what happened to the Zone camera? It constantly moves around left and right and is super disorienting. It used to be static moving left and right, just moved up and down. Also the goalie cover is still broken
