NHL jerseys errors

Since I saw that the Detroit Red Wings 16-17 got fixed in the last update, I want to take my chance and tell some of the errors on current NHL jerseys.

First and one of the most obvious is the Tampa Bay Lightning numbers font on both the current home and away jerseys. The good font is already in the game. It's the same as the black alternate jersey the Lightning are currently using.

On the left is game screenshots and on the right real pictures

As you can see the #4 stands out but all the numbers have something different, something wrong.


Second, the Philadelphia Flyers both home and away jerseys have not thick enough outline around the numbers on both the back and arms numbers.

You can see that the thickness of the outline is larger on the real jerseys which makes a huge difference for the overall look. And it's the same thing with numbers on the arms.

Same goes for the 2012 winter classic and an alternate (same but without the shoulder patch)

There is a font that look like the real one the Flyers are using in create a team and I've did a test to show you the contrast.

There is another problem with Flyers home and away jerseys. They have wrong letter font for the captain and assistants letters in front of the jerseys. Completely wrong

On the bright side, like Tampa, the good font is already in the game. The Flyers black third has the good font. Which (I think) makes this easier to fix

Next is the Arizona Coyotes.

I don't know when it was switch but on the jersey which was their home for a little while now and apparently is an alternate this year, the ''C'' is on the other side of the jersey.

Don't know if it will really switch side but one way or the other, one of the jersey has the letter on the wrong side

Now some little detail that is not that flagrant as the others mentionned before

The Chicago Blackhawks home and away jerseys have numbers with not thick enough outline just like the Flyers but on the arms only.

And last but not least, the Dallas Stars home and away letters in front captain and assistants have the good font, everything is good from that end but my gosh that they are huge.

I understand that they stretch when moving but I took my screenshot with the letters being as small as I could get.

So yeah, that's all. There is a lot of jerseys in the CHL that are wrong but I don't have the patience to go through all of them for the time being.

If someone could respond me about if anything will be looked at because a lot of the things that need to be fixed are wrong for years now and I'm kind of tired to write about it each year.

Thanks

  • I barely even noticed the difference.

    There's big enough of a difference to make the thread viable.

    The C being on the wrong side of the Arizona uniform is a pretty glaring issue lol
  • This is a Alumni team issue, but I’ll mention it here in case some devs see this thread.

    The bottom of the first and last letter of the players name are cut off on the Rangers home an away jerseys.

    I don’t have pics, but I can describe it as follows.

    LEETCH, looks like I EETCU.
  • It actually boggles my mind how they get jerseys so wrong lol. It's the same in FIFA. Like getting them wrong is some level of incompetence.
  • This is just EA's "attention" to details, has been this way for years, has been mentioned for years, but they don't bother to fix it.
  • It actually boggles my mind how they get jerseys so wrong lol. It's the same in FIFA. Like getting them wrong is some level of incompetence.

    They are in the same building and I think using the same sort of tech, so it makes sense that both games would have the same problems.
  • Another Alumni team issue, and this one is a carry over from 20 that was never fixed.

    The 93-94 Mighty Ducks away uniform STILL has a black helmet. It needs to be purple.

    They didn’t use a black helmet until the 97-98 season, and that was because they changed the helmet, pants and gloves to black.

    So EA needs to either change the date labeled on those uniforms to 97-98, changing the pants and gloves to black as well, or just change the helmet to purple.
  • Let's be honest here, they need to fix ALOT more important things right now than tiny mistakes on jerseys, the gameplay is atrocious.

    Gameplay has always been an issue, especially since this generation of consoles. From what I've seen over the years, it's work in progress and it will still be that way moving forward. There always will be something wrong unless they make a new revolutionary engine for the AI.

    Each year it's the same. Always something easy to exploit. One year it's the poke checks being overpowered, the next we can't touch that bouton. A year everybody scores with a shot from the slot, the next only cross creases. It's a matter of balance but it seems hard to achevied because everybody adapts their game. It's never perfect and considering the evolution over the last 5-6 years, I doubt that will change drastically by tomorrow morning.

    The issues I'm talking about (well.. we) are one and done fixes unlike the gameplay. If it's done the right way we wouldn't be talking about it at all.

    For me it takes away from the experience. My favorite team is the Flyers and I create some random Flyers jerseys since theirs are ugly as hell. It stinks that 98% of the jerseys are on point but not these ones.

    And correct me if I'm wrong but I think the people who work on gameplay are not the same as the ones on graphic content.

    Yeah cause fixing small jersey mistakes should take all the resources EA have so they won't be able to work on gameplay... ;)

    Oh hey I totally agree, all the jerseys should have been right from the beginning and it's awful that they can't get them right. You'd think that since they just copy the same game from year to year that after 5 years they'd have the jerseys graphics down pat 😂.
  • Isn't the the shade of orange also wrong in Philly's jerseys? It's nearly red.

    Lots of “shades” are off.

    Look at the pic of that Rangers jersey. The helmet is blue. The jersey is one shade off of purple. It’s been like that for years. And being a Rangers fan, it drives me batty.

    There’s that, and then there’s the issue of pretty much all the white helmets being off-white or cream colored.

  • Since we're on the issue of jerseys, how about uniforms in general. The New York Islanders gloves should have orange fingertips but only 1 set (a CCM variant) in the game are presented that way. Lots of little things they are missing and have missed for years.
  • The “C & A” (Captain & Alternate captains) jersey patch is on the wrong side of the jersey, needs to be switched to the right side.

    furthermore, Dallas, Philadelphia & Tampa Bay all have font issues.
  • Tampa Bays font on their Home & Away is straight up wrong. It needs to be the same as their Alternates numerical font.

    Philadelphia similarly has the correct font on their alternates, but not the Home & aways

    Dallas’ font on their “C or A” is huge and needs to be a lot smaller.

    Arizona alternates (old home) has the “C or A” on the wrong side of the uniform STILL.

    I’m quoting myself because I’m tired of typing the same thing over and over.

    Another patch, and neither of these issues have been fixed. Again.

    They got it right this time with the retro reverse.

    Home and away still not right tho

    The numbers are still a wait and see thing as the numbers font on replica jerseys on home and away are not right like the ones in the game.

    BUT. The inner triangle in the 4 is full unlike the others. So I've got to think that is really the good numbers.
  • Black helmet on Penguins Reverse Retro is wrong.
