Outdoor rinks

Prev13
I would much prefer the outdoor rinks just go away, but if you insist on making us play on them, please, please, please let us turn off the obnoxious music that constantly plays in the background. I tried turning "arena music" all the way down, but that seems to only affect music in indoor arenas.

    Agreed. When I first heard it I wasn't sure if I had an ad up on my other monitor or something. Was not a fan.

    It’s a separate audio setting for some of the outdoor rinks that you’ll find near the bottom of the list in audio settings within the the WoC hub’s settings; festival music volume...you can also turn down the “DJ announcer’” there too.

  • Why not give us the choice of indoors or out? Outdoors is too gimmicky for me, I reluctantly see why it was inputted 3 years ago (try something new I guess) but after 3 years and many complaints? Too me it should be an easy fix.
  • They really need to bring back our drop in teams and put us back in the enclosed arena. This isn't NHL style hockey anymore. No one likes the clown gear...no one ever did. We complained about it after the first season of the single out door rink.

    Did they listen? No.

    What did they do? They added more out door rinks and had to remove one of them when the complaining got too much (canal rink).

    Did they listen to us this year? Nope.

    They don't ever listen
  • This should be really friggin easy:

    Eliminator and Pro Am modes: Casual gear, Outdoor rinks
    WoC DropIns and Club: Pro Gear, Indoor rinks (except special events),

  • Man oh man just make Outdoor rinks optional and get this over with.

    ANY time you try to force your players in to one single environment while the game boasts countless others - it's a terrible decision.

    Give people the option, don't force it - your base will be happier.
  • It would be like replacing guns in call of duty with squirt guns. Fun novelty but gets OLD REAL FAST if its forced on you.
  • Been wanting @NHLDev to bring this indoor hockey back for awhile, along the communities. I miss being able to play indoor drop-in when my club wasn't online, select our jerseys. along find members in the lounges to play with or against. It's how I met my club members and we found games late at night. Now the outdoor drop-in is difficult to find games and majority of the games are nothing but trolls. Many avoid it because of that and play club. Why not give us an option? Have the outdoor drop-in setup as casual and indoor as something for us who majority wanted. Games turning way to arcade style that I don't think it's worth buying anymore.

    you and every single other normal person in this game feel the same way. they don't seem to recognize or care.

    It was probably the whirring of the helicopter blades. Very fan-like.

    That's because they copied and pasted NHL 20 into NHL 21. Did we expect them not to just mail it in? I mean I was a tad hopeful but the realist in me knew this was what would happen

    I find it hilarious that so many of you believe software engineers would literally copy and paste code.

    Well, as an ex software engineer/programmer, I find it amusing that you find it hilarious. 😁

    It is very much possible and also easy to do. Depending how well the original code was written, it's either good or bad solution though...

    I'm not saying that EA does it. But it certainly looks like they do. Actually I would be surprised if they wouldn't.

    I find it funny that a company would claim they rebuilt a game from the ground up only to SOMEHOW reprogram all the legacy bugs in from the ground up too.

    Exactly, big red flag was snapping sticks on a stick lift. Devs also later confirmed that legacy code was still in destroying the whole notion of "built from the ground up". They tried to suppress threads and comments about it a lot back then.

    What do you think 90% of coding is? Copying the work of those who came before you.

    Also most of the work at this point isn't "coding".

    yeah they basically had to come out and admit it was a "misunderstanding" that it was built from the ground up. it was significant rework but its obvious it used a lot of the existing code.
