By now we know United Center won't be in there since they've basically released every playoff team's stadium by now

The Rog looks awesome!

The AAC looks great, but it's WAY to dark. It's a real bright arena.

Rogers Arena looks incredible. But that shouldn't come as a shock.

Of the 10 that have been released the Canucks are the only non-playoff team that have been released.

Chicago, Columbus, Montreal, Philadelphia, St. Louis, & Tampa Bay are the ones that haven't been shown. Three major hockey cities are on that list so don't hang your head low just yet.

Also if they continue releasing two every Saturday, then we'll see new arenas every Saturday until 9/20. haha

I just hope that NHL 15 will truly feel and PLAY like NHL game.

I agree with Morry83.

stadiums looks too dark. More lighting is required.

AAC looks great. It is a little dark like it was mentioned, but other than that, pretty spot on.
 
# 8 csamuelsvt @ 07/13/14 12:17 PM
I believe some parts are dark due to the framerate.
 
# 9 mt8732 @ 07/13/14 12:50 PM
Yea the lighting for all these arenas is the same. Looks like a laker game at staples. At a blue jackets game the whole place is lit up even the nosebleeds. If its frame rate then use lower res crowd for upper deck or something

They spent all that time on these beautiful arenas, finally, only to blindfold nearly 1/3 to 1/2 of their work.
I highly doubt that the quality of the crowd in the nosebleeds is the same as the quality of the crowd right against the glass. The reason it's dark in the upper areas of every arena is so that they can hide the lower-quality models of the crowd and save CPU resources.

you guys realize how often you will see the upper areas of these arenas when actually playing the game right? hardly ever

Too many fans in the AAC! They rarely (if ever) sell out. Seriously though as others stated it looks spot on.

If EA keep on boasting about the effort that they put to give us 19,000 fans and yet release these kind of pics....where is the proof of their effort? You know, if EA stop stressing that they put an effort to give us these 19,000 fans we will not have this "bitching" around about the darkness of the nosebleed sections.

We need proof...if a claim has no substantial proofs then trash it.

Apparently he has not. Place was PACKED when I last went. Even in the upper deck.

Everybody is speculating way to much. I know we have no gameplay to critique and everybody has the right but I will leave my criticism for a gameplay video if any. I am still pumped for the release really missing hockey know and for the first time in years more changes this go around more than any year. I did briefly play the show on my new ps4 and it was ok but I certainly don't see what all the fuss is about the game it was it's ok

There's been so many jokes about our attendance after they released the screenshot. Just a bunch of people who have no idea what they're talking about.

I agree it's an ahole thing to joke about, but you guys do have the worst % in the league for attendance. You average 14,658 a game which fills up 79.1% of your arena. Only Florida and Arizona get less fans per game but their % is a tad higher than Dallas. As crappy as it is for people saying that, they aren't necessarily wrong if they aren't saying it out of ignorance. Plus if the Stars weren't as good as they were this year, the percentage would be far less. It probably would have been much closer to their numbers in 2011-12.

I admit that it is a little dark, but I have attached a picture of teh ACC during a game and the upper bowl crowds are not very bright even IRL. And the crowd is way to big in the EA pic.
