    Bumping for equipment suggestions.

    Thanks for jumping in on this. Just replacing the Bauer Reakt 100 with the 150 and/or 95 would go a long way for player likenesses. Literally no one uses the 100 anymore (or really ever did) and half the guys in your game (HUT and CHEL) have it on their heads.

  • In hut is there any plans to match the goalie's equipment to the team he's on
  • I've noticed that Bauer tends to keep their gear current in all of these games and they tend remove any of the previous year's Bauer equipment. What tends to bug me is why do they keep old Vaughn, CCM, and Warrior equipment in the game when it hasn't been worn in years? The Vaughn V3, V4, V5, and even V6 gear hasn't been worn in quite some time now. I would have preferred they kept some of the old Bauer gear over those or even the Reebok gear.

    While we’re at it - is there any way to make the branded helmets more common or unlocked from the start in world of chel? I haven’t been able to use the Bauer 4500 or CCM v08 in the last 3 years, but seem to always unlock 4000 emotes I never touch or that hideous and fake looking college helmet.
  • I don’t get why Bauer has no older gear. I figure it’s a licensing thing sadly but that doesn’t excuse why there’s the 100 but no 95 and 150. They are much newer and the 100 has been discontinued for a few years now.

    At the minimum add the tacks 910 though.

    Did you look through this thread? There are lots of suggestions...

    Yes, some great submissions from 4 individuals. Looking for more. What equipment would you like to see?

    Can you please get rid of the heel strap coming through the front of the CCM P1s?

  • No CaT sock templates either...3 years straight of having jersey templates that are unusable without their matching sock counterparts.
  • It was really a nice surprise to see some new helmets added during the most recent patch, but they're still missing tons of goalie equipment. The True Lefevre pads, the CCM E-Flex 5, the Vaughn Pro V Elite, as well as the Bauer Ultra Sonic stick. Plus the Vapor pads could still use some added colour options as well. But the helmets were a nice start.
  • I think they said there's no chance of True Lefevre being included. I hate the fact the Bauers are so restricted on color zones and the fact older Bauer stuff gets taken out every year.
  • Really? That really sucks if they don't include the True/Lefevre gear this year, especially considering past years they're always patched in True gear.
  • Thanks ea!!!! They added new stuff
    Helmets:
    Reakt 150
    Tacks 910
    Covert rs pro
    Sticks:
    Alpha DX gold

    Helmets are a huge improvement. Awesome work.

    Awesome work indeed. Unfortunately the Reakt 150 is locked in World of Chel and none of the NHL players have been edited to actually wear it (or the 910 aside from Matthews) so the update is pretty trivial for online modes. The odds I actually unlock the helmet are about 1 in 100,000 amid the sea of emotes and toques.

    @EA_Blueberry im happy to PM you a list of NHL players that need fixing for a future roster update if helpful.

    Still waiting on the Ultrasonic going to yellow though.. seems like an obvious thing to fix (although you can buy it in person in custom colors)

    I messaged Warrior on Twitter a couple weeks ago asking them what the deal was with Covert RS not in the game and they said “that is a question to ask EA”, so I take it brands aren’t very involved in this. Seems like a decision by dev team to make it red which is dumb, 99% of NHLers will have it with the stock colors

    Yes, some great submissions from 4 individuals. Looking for more. What equipment would you like to see?

    A bunch of vintage equipment. We have the alumni players now so it would be great to have them wear correct equipment.

    I would like to see the old CCM helmet that was in use from the 70's up until 2013-2014. That would make most alumni players wear the correct helmet in the game. The Messier helmet would also be a nice addition which would take care of basically the rest of the alumni players. Oh, and the Jofa helmet Lemieux and Jagr wore in the 90's!

    And more vintage sticks, gloves, skates, goalie gear etc. If it's difficult to get license and such, why not add in some generic vintage equipment? Especially for gloves, skates and goalie gear.

    These are my suggestions.

    I agree with these suggestions.

    Also, no equipment, of any kind, should ever be taken out of this game. Now that Alumni players are available, a lot of the goalie pads that haven’t been used in years are now relevant again.

    In fact, I’d love to see some pads that used to actually be in this game be brought back.
  • I think vintage equipment is a neat idea, I'd still like to see them have them have the most current gear in the game. But if they are going to continue with the alumni and vintage trend, they need to make an option for smaller shoulder pads and goalie equipment cause they alumni guys look silly in the current oversized gear that they wear in the game.

    I only play offline so I’ve been personally making all the equipment authentic in the nhl. Long process but it makes it feel more realistic.

    Pretty sure Cooper Hockey Canada is dead so this would be hard to do 😂...
  • I'm starting to see more and more True brand goalie equipment releases for NHL goalies on social media. I know someone earlier mentioned that the likelihood of these being patched into the game are slim, but considering a fair amount of goalies were using the gear last season and during the playoffs, it seems silly not to patch them in. Especially too considering EA has patched a fair amount of True equipment into their games in the past as well.
  • I can’t believe the eflex 5’s didn’t make it into the game. I can’t believe the vapors still can’t be customized like they can IRL lol...
