  1. I don't think they added 4K textures because the install size of the game didn't change hardly at all. Unlike other Xbox One X Enhanced games that got much larger by several gigabytes with 4K textures added which really made them look great. I'm going to test it out and see how it looks though. Even the 4K resolution only upgrade will make it look better. I found it rather blurry with crappy or no AA on a 4K TV before, upscaling wasn't enough.

    Matthews did get his play by play.

    Sweet. What about other guys like Marner, Werenski, Rantanen? Sorry, can't check for myself right now.

    Is this true? Can others confirm this along with Laine, Marner, and the others?
    *can confirm Matthews name is in*
    They really need to separate the jerseys and rosters. Some of us prefer to use older rosters and are stuck without the new jerseys (the default ones does get updated but we don't get new alternates or whatever.

    Unless you're playing playing now, or online versus, you can keep using your franchise rosters.

    Matthews and Tkachuk are the only new ones I've heard so far. No Laine, Marner, Werenski, Rantanen, Aho, Buchnevich, McAvoy, Point, Guentzel, Provorov, Hyman. Good job on that part, EA... Is it really that hard? I mean, they brought in Doc to record the names Matthews and Tkachuk, and maybe some other new lines, but not the names of some pretty fine players in their second year? I don't get it.

    Marner, Tkachuk and Laine got theirs
    Playing on the ps4 pro after installing the latest patch I noticed that when you shoot the puck and miss the net once the puck hits the back board there is no sound for the puck only when it hits the side boards
    In franchise, on the main screen with the schedule.. has the standing always rotated or is this new with the patch? I don't remember it going through each division for some reason, I thought prepatch it only had your division standings shown?

    I noticed this as well. It never moved before this latest patch.

    Is it just me, or does gameplay seem faster on this patch too?

    It feels a little faster and tighter to me. Not necessarily in a good way, feels like there is a bit too much agility across the board now, and defending and attacking require fewer proper skating moves. It's a lot easier to recover and a lot easier to get to areas without having to plan ahead as much.
    I’m not sure it’s faster, but it’s for sure smoother. Maybe that’s what everyone is feeling? Being more smooth making it feel faster?
    The sound of the puck hitting the back boards when you miss the net isn’t there anymore with the latest patch. It was nice to have another tournament to play, but when you get to the choose jersey screen, every team can only choose between the Ducks home and away jerseys. Quite a disappointing bug if you ask me. There’s a lot of leagues in this game and all of those teams jerseys are in the game, but EA can’t get these jerseys right....shaking my head in disbelief.

    This patch is horrible.. I'm having stuttering issues on Xbox One during games and the only fix for me is to hard reset the console, then after a few more games it comes back again. It's like a pause/studdering while playing the game, which makes it unplayable until I clear the cache again.
    Never had this issue pre patch. :(

    I haven't seen this, but I have yet to play multiple games in a row either.

    I've always had this issue on ps4 in 17 and 18. It happens when I put the ps4 in rest mode. I have to force close the game every time I want to play.

    Now we need some crowd chants for the Golden Knights and their goal song to be added. T-Mobile has good energy in real life and it's a cathedral in this game.
    Slapshot issue not fixed, pucks still pass through players, players still freeze in place, and not a single issue with the bad AI addressed. This patch needs a patch.....
    NHL 18 Tuner - (Available December 20th, 2018)
    Pokechecking Balance:
    Increased the penalty to accuracy as you are spamming pokecheck
    Increased impact of error as the relative speed between the puck and the player is higher
    Goaltending:
    Adjusted goalie save logic so that it is more forgiving. Goalies reaction time vs the time it takes for the puck to get to them is still the biggest factor and goalies will still have the most success when in great position (center of their chest in line with the shot trajectory) and less success the more they have to reach from their body for the puck.
