It does feel better online. My first game after the update was a drop in and it was smooth as silk

2gb? Jeez. The size of some of these patches is crazy.

Hope they patched up the menus in Be A GM. The lag is atrocious, and I have to press a button multiple times in order for it to register.

I'm playing now after update


completely different game now online in the EASHL

no more input lag and changes the game significantly imo

the game is twice as good now

great update!

Is it out for XB1? I think mine downloads automatically.. as the Madden patch did.. but just wanted to check as I didn't see any popup tonight.

I believe the update only addresses online play and input lag mainly for the EASHL


crash issues and boy does it.. the game is completely different now in the EASHL and WAY better. feels and plays great now

it feels like a new game to me... keep in mind I have only played this game online in the EASHL since it came out last tues night. I have logged around 30 games... all in the EASHL and this update has just made twice as addicting and 0 input lag now

Darn was hoping it would address my Left Wing being coached to win more faceoffs

Is this coming out for Xbox one? I didn't get any prompts when I just turned on the game.

Had that feeling you get where you think your shiny new toy is now working.... Until that sad feeling takes its place when you realize offline got no love and the wait resumes to see if another patch will be made.

Hopefully it fixes some matchmaking issues... I have yet to get into an EASHL or OTP game.

Played 2 periods offline, no more framerate stutters at low gamespeed. Hope it's not placebo.....

cumulative goal totals in BeAGM mode still not in.

EASHL does seem different. Puck control seemed a bit more consistent and actually being able to hold onto the puck for more than 2 seconds. Not sure if they actually changed anything other than fixing lag but my games tonight definitely played differently from last night for the better.

I dont get it. I hope it doesn't continue

Weird part is, I lowered the game speed from the start and only had one game with the stuttering. They still need to fix that though because it is really tough to play like that.

Played 3 games in GM mode with the game speed set to 1 since the patch installed, haven't had any dropped frames or stuttering. I'm really surprised at this

This is promising.

Can confirm the frame rate problem seems fixed across the board.

Yep, same here. Previously I'd get stuttering at any speed under 3. Seems all good now for me as well. Odd they wouldn't acknowledge this in the patch notes.
