I normally ban for comments like Gangrel's, but I'm just throwing out a public warning due to he fact that he isn't far off. Some of the posts I saw yesterday were plain terrible, and a good showing of why the NHL devs don't frequent the NHL forum actively anymore.

I wasn't referring to this place specifically. I was just reading through some of the comments on the Twitter feed. It just seems there, on Reddit , and elsewhere that people think the roster update should have been out 10 seconds after the last team played their first game.

I'm anxious for it just like anybody else, but I also understand with all the legal stuff between EA and all the leagues around the world it takes time. This is not Madden or NBA where you have just one league to deal with.

That's why I wish they had roster sharing. The community doesn't have to worry about the legal stuff. And if they are struggling to put out roster updates, the community would take a lot of that heat off of the developers.

I agree, it would be nice. I just wonder if they don't want to have to use their servers to store everything like 2k does?

Nicely done EA! Pretty quick this year compared to the past isn't it? Feels like it is anyways. To me, this is the most important update since it gets those rookies in there. Time to fire up my franchise mode and actually get into this game now.

Question - I've seen you on a couple live streams playing the game. I'm interested in your impression of this year's game and what changes you see from last year's version.

Huge fan of the Full Sim setting. Puck physics are different, you can attack offense in different ways (last year you couldn't), dumping the puck matters (both to counter the trap and to manage stamina).

Net battles change the game for me (more specially the extended stick lifts now).

Best hockey game that I can remember (with the caveat that I play offline only in default Full Sim)

Thanks for the reply. What exactly is full sim? Is it coach mode or do you control the players?

yes you control the players. It's the name for the difficulty setting. They changed the naming convention this year. Consider it like last year's Superstar setting, only much much better.

I can also confirm the merged roster crash has been fixed, you can move created players from previous roster to a new roster.
 
# 19 NinthFall @ 10/19/16 03:16 PM
They had a month to add the non-existing players and here I come all joyful and hopeful starting a new franchise career mode with Panthers. Still missing players. And Still have players not in the roster. And Matheson missing a picture for second season in a row.

Oh well... EA...
