Doesn't look like it's going to address some of the custom music issues and general framerate issues/lockups. Makes me a sad panda, but at this point, I'll take what I can get. Still not buying NHL 13 after this year's issues though.

It says nothing about fixing the penalty issue either.....something that soooo many of us have been griping about.

It's quite apparent that ea sports does not review this website at all, its a shame they could help themselves much more like Sony did with their baseball game.

Gee, thanks EA. There is nothing on this list that helps out the hardcore community, at all...Hopefully, this isn't all of it, but knowing EA it will be. What a slap in the face.

Customer: "Yeah, I think penalties need fixing, there just aren't all that many, which really kills the realism and immersion of your product."

EA Devs: "Ok, we'll put numbers on the front of the helmet! How's that sound to ya?"

Customer: *face palm*

EA Devs: "No? Ok, we'll put that in AND we'll fix it so you can download tuners again even though we don't really do those that much. Now, how does THAT sound to ya?"

Customer: "Just ... just forget it!" *sigh*

So numbers on the front of helmets makes its way into a patch? This seems odd as it would seem to be a major change to the presentation design and programming for a lot of in game situations. The reason I say it's odd is so many times they've said they cannot change things like this. So basically it's all been BS the whole time.

This makes the other jersey, color, number issues inexcuseble. Not to mention they still can't update the goalie pads properly after months.

I'm not a Florida Panther fan but I'd be straight up pissed that there is no mention of fixing the number size issue on the new uniforms. But hey at least a little number on top of the helmet will be there!

What a joke.
 
# 8 thedude @ 12/22/11 05:24 PM
Wow...you gotta be kidding me! No fix to the penalties issue? Especially when it would be such an easy fix. This is like a bad joke or something.
 
# 9 tigsbaseballfan @ 12/22/11 07:27 PM
EA should play some MLB11 the show and look at the details and how they respond to the consumers, get some REAL hockey people in there helpin out.
 
# 10 mbergh22 @ 12/22/11 07:38 PM
This patch already sucks. No custom music and freezing issues are gonna be fixed! Screw you EA!
 
# 11 BlueNGold @ 12/22/11 08:10 PM
No penalty fix?
 
# 12 MizzouRah @ 12/23/11 12:19 AM
Personally, I love the way is playing for me right now, but I'm with you all.. #'s on helmets vs some gameplay issues?

Eeeekkk...
 
# 13 Roscosuper @ 12/23/11 12:54 AM
Even pre-patch, penalties would disappear from time to time. Maybe this tuner mode thingy is the culprit. Maybe someone can get a response from a dev? Maybe there's still hope.
 
# 14 Suntan Superman @ 12/23/11 01:31 AM
There's more negativity here than in voting booths. Wow.
 
# 15 Therion7 @ 12/23/11 06:40 AM
"Situation where a stick check would sometimes crash the game"

I'm wondering if this is perhaps the cause of the major "camera moves, then freezes, sound continues" lockup?

I'm hoping that's the case.

I haven't played this game properly in about six weeks but I still come in here every day hoping to hear Ea will fix the penalties issue most of us are experiencing.

Surely EA can't not be aware there is an issue with penalty calls? Which makes me think it could be a tuner issue, but then if that was the case would they not have fixed it by now. Call me confused!
 
# 18 mkharsh33 @ 12/23/11 10:19 AM
LOL!! Nothing about penalties or pass reception. Thanks EA...appreciate your listening to us. (What a joke).
 
# 19 speels @ 12/23/11 11:52 AM
I love the hypocrisy on this site sometimes. They add numbers on front of the helmets and people mock them. Then I go to another thread and see over 50 posts about how the shade of yellow on the Nashville jersey is wrong, as well as the colors of the Jets jerseys. Yet you don't think numbers on the front of the helmets may have as many people complaining somewhere else??

Hahahaha!!!

I am having a blast with this game and if this patch makes it more stable then I will be happy. Yea, I would like more penalties, but I enjoy the game for what it is.......a break from the every day monotony of life.
 
# 20 gsize19 @ 12/23/11 12:13 PM
That's it???? Really??? No penalty increase???? Very disappointed in this year's title!!! First time I have ever said that, first time for everything I guess, but as a consumer, I may put my money where my mouth is and stop buying... This company has taken 10 steps backwards from where they were at with the NHL series just 2 years ago...
