  • How can it be that EA feels the need to put back an allmost 30 years old game as a reward for pre-ordering? Nostalgia is wonderful, just not in the gaming industry. Whenever they remove DDA, their game is golden. There would be no need to look back.
  • For an offline game - this is all good. When you play competitive online, and especially when there's money in the mix - not so much. Why not both? What makes you think this isn't a poorly programed game - with DDA? I know I have, just as you, had…
  • This is where I think you are too kind to EA. The idea of DDA is not to offer a level playing field. It is to push players towards spending money. The traditional player are spending $60 every year. The guys they are hunting for are spending thousa…
  • This! Very much this! When I realized that I could stop playing defence all together, and it would not make any difference in how many goals I conceded, that's when I stopped playing this game. I have tried this several times, and could not see any …
  • So, rather than user error, it's just poorly designed then? I did not know this was the case. If it really is, that might explain why it sometimes feels as the attacker has some kind of a force field, guiding you around him. I do agree with you, how…
  • Ha Ha! Of all the things I didn’t know I wanted, the Leo Decaprio Champagne Glass of Approval Seal ranks surprisingly high. B)
  • That’s exactly how it would sound if they were letting kids gamble in casinos. «There’s no one saying hey kids, come give us your money. It’s their choice, they think it’s fun! Besides, the majority of our customers are adults.» You see how bad that…
  • Who said that the game making money is a bad thing? All I have seen is statements pointing to how it's a bad thing to prey on children and people with addictive personalities. I'm certain we can agree on that? Did you read the investorcall transcri…
  • Yes, addiction out of control is an ugly thing. That's why we normally have regulations on gambling, alcohol and such. These lootboxes, however, fall into a grey area of the law. Authorities around the world are slowly catching up, and there are dis…
  • It's in the earnings call transcript I linked to earlier in this thread: https://www.fool.com/earnings/call-transcripts/2019/10/29/electronic-arts-ea-q2-2020-earnings-call-transcrip.aspx Here's some outtakes for you from Blake Jorgensen -- Chief Op…
  • EA has an unprecedented control over their playerbase. And by playerbase I mean the HUT crowd. Their old playerbase, the sportsfans looking for a good representation of their favorite sports seems to be dwindling away. Who cares, though? HUT sales a…
  • Well, I don’t think new gameplay devs would help at all. I am convinced EA knows exactly what they are doing, and that this game plays on par with their companywide policy on how their sportstitles should play. If you check out Metacritics userscore…
  • You, my good sir, are normally spot on in your analyses of this game. The endurance stat for yourself and Venom is a clear 99. Even so: Do you really think EA, who has been a crucial part of defining what sport-games are all about, are so out of tou…
  • I think you are 100% right. Seems like there's just too much money to be made, for this to ever change. Of course we can stop buying the game and stay away from HUT, but it would take something the size of the Battlefront II fiasco to change anythin…
  • Then you have the third group who think it's both of these. Some games you can literally put down your controller everytime you loose the puck, your AI will carry you. Other games they will abandon the post, opening up for that one-timer all game lo…
  • Heres a third period of me not playing D. For the most part I don't even try to get to loose pucks, (reflexes are hard to suppress). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hN1BzhFfbhs I have played the whole game like this. Still I win 3-2. If you, after s…
  • I've been wondering who that might be. They skip E3 and instead presents the new game during NHL Awards, "to better target their audience". Then proudly announces Battle Royale...? A hockey loving person with little to no interest in video games, e…
  • Great post, I agree wholeheartedly with everything you said. Just quoted the last bit to keep scrolling at a minimum. When low skill goals are happening just as often as the ones that take more skill to pull off, the whole concept of a 1v1 game is g…
  • Short passes has been a weak spot of this title for as long as I can remember. It would be really nice to have a reliable way of playing those short simple passes. Personally, I haven't been missing higher top-speed on the passes, but when you say h…
  • To get more players to pick up this game, keep on playing it and eventually become yearly buyers. They need to stop pushing everyone towards Ultimate Team. EA are aware of this, as can be seen in this article describing a conference call they did fo…
