  1. Looking good in the trailer.
    Would love to see some unedited gameplay tho. Preferably CPU vs CPU, so I can see if it all feels more like hockey with new skating system.

    Yeah, that's been my frustration in the past. Sure, something looks good in an edited video with quick cuts, but if it's just a visual change to the way players already move, then it might not be a big help. Especially if when I try to just move laterally along the blue line my guy still swings the puck across the line for no reason.

    This is the answer here. The sell is a good one, but we need to see and feel it in regular gameplay, and also see how the cpu uses it.
    Yes....looking great but still want to see it in action. Also even if the skating is awesome if the AI, mainly teammate AI is still brain dead then the new skating is meaningless. Nothing worse then watching your AI defenseman skate away from the front of the net for no reason leaving a guy camped out for the easy cheesy one timer goal.....online or offline. Also the flock of geese penalty kill
    I would like to see a improvment in a fight engine, dont have fight in game at leats in cpu vs cpu in nhl 18 , this is a game about NHL, have fights yet in game, not olympic games.

    net physics with the puck in the net is non-existent in that video. hopefully they can fix this when the game comes out in September.

    Stuck out like a sore thumb. Imagine NBA 2K with no mesh physics?
    Making a game look and feel great is super important to the immersion but that all wears off if the gameplay is bad. Regardless of how good the skating is if human players can still exploit years old glitches, terrible goalie movement, and horrid CPU AI or you can still lose simply because your teammate AI just wanders aimlessly and skates into you then that’s not fun and hardcore hockey fans will still hate the game. Here’s to hoping....and I’m dying to see some in action play.
    they really need to grab my attention this year. i got bored with 18 really fast. if 19 is nothing more than a skating update, then i'm done. i'll have plenty of other stuff to occupy my time. they need to refine the game for simulation purposes. roster sharing.
    i'm not into the money making modes they push. i'm a sim gamer who loves season or franchise mode, and strictly plays against the cpu. i'm the guy EA doesn't care about anymore.....

    We are dying breed... :(
    Are we?
    Or are we just the group that EA does not cater to anymore because making an actual good NHL game demands WORK and not just fiddling around.
    Im happy they updated the skating, but this means nothing if this does not extend to goalies, and to how defense works. Adding better skating and leaving the rest of the model untouched is not going to work.

    It’s as simple as money. People spend a lot of cash on HUT but us true sim offline guys buy the game and that’s it. We prefer doing the work ourselves with the rosters and love doing full seasons with realistic stats....there is not another dime to be made from us so we don’t rate period. I believe fully that if online gaming didn’t exist we would have a seriously good hockey game by now but it’s no longer important to them.

    ugh.
    They used to have it, seemed to have vanished when they went to ps4/xbox1

    Yeah, that was awful. It's like they treat the net like a brick wall.

    Yep, me too. I don't play online. Never have because you have to pay extra to play online and the games cost too much as it is and I'm not gonna pay extra to play online. The whole online modes on all sporting video games taking the focus and attention of franchise modes just disappoints me to no end. Franchise mode has always been my bread and butter.

    I feel exactly the same way. NHL 18 was one of the few times I did not go through a whole season however I did fine a decent experience. And I have never paid for the money modes strictly offline as well.

    Nail on the head, plus they don't have a team the size of Madden to work on more than the priory cash modes. I truly believe by the time they get to offline stuff like franchise, they run out of time.
    First:
    We are not a dying breed.
    God of war nailed first player experiences and sales were off the charts. Game-of-the friggin year.
    Last year: Single player games like Horizon zero Dawn and a new Link-game tore it up.
    In Sports: NBA 2k and MLB are doing exceptionally well with deeper franchise modes and players modes (especially 2k I would say). These are games with solid offline and online options for players of all ages.
    EA is playing catch up with these guys. We are not dying - we just got to where the good games are :-)
    EA believes fully that online is the way to go because $. But they are missing out on players who are tired of this method. They are missing out on diversifying their portfolio of games to cater to different players.
    Second:
    Very little progress is done with the so called cash modes in NHL.
    HUT might earn you money, but the dev team makes little to no attempt to develop this side of their own game year by year.
    So Im not so sold on the cash modes take more time theory.
    I honestly think the creative forces on EA's NHL series either have left the building or just have to do a lot of repetitive tasks.
    Do they have a small dev team? No doubt in my mind.
    And I dont think it will get better if the series keep loosing money and support.
    Third: Want to make more cash of Offline players? Take a look at the immersive and deep gameplay of MyPlayer in NBA 2k. You can buy stuff for your player / fave modes, and/or just play games and have fun with that. You can buy extra content, like extra jerseys and so forth (if Im not wrong) for your own created franchise.
    Man, I wish I was a bigger NBA-fan! :-D
    If NHL's gameplay and its content were better, I might support the game more with cash if this was possible.
    Im sure this is exactly the driection they are planning with their version of 2k's ProAm concept. They are testing the waters to see if they can get a little more out of their player base.
    At this point I cannot say they have succeeded or not, but I get the feeling this is a bit of a tacked on mode this year - especally if the dev team has reworked skating and so forth.
    Give it a few years and maybe EAs NHL series can manage to balance offline and online stuff.. maybe ;-)

    This is a very rational post I like it. I do think that the NHL series will always be behind other sports games because of the sport’s popularity. Hockey is a popular sport in North America, but it is still very much an niche sport in comparison to the 3 other major sports leagues in NA. Could the game be better if it was in a different team’s hands? Possibly, but any team will always be limited in what they can do in a year’s time due to their small size and smaller funding.
    So if you’re an NHL gamer it is probably best to treat the series like that and skip some years if you want to save money. Eventually if they keep talking baby steps each year we should eventually get a game that as you said finds the right balance between offline and online play. My only fear is what might happen when they switch to the next gen consoles whenever they do come. It could halt all the progress that accumulates over the years. Simply put EA cannot afford another NHL 15 it would be a massive mistake on their part.
    I hope see gretzki play like gretzki, mario lemioux play like mario lemious. Today we dont see much diference of a player ovr 77 to a player 94 ovr (at least in cpu vs cpu). You have a 70 ovr player dont have diference to a franchise player, i hope that this change, bring this to the game. Franchise players need make the diference in a game.
    We can’t always give EA a break because their dev team is smaller than Madden’s or 2K’s.
    I understand that logic to a degree but IMO NHL2K3 and NHL2K5 were both fantastic games and I doubt either of those dev teams were large.

    I agree, especially when they are asking the same exact price as NBA 2k, Madden, God of War etc

    I would think we could see some clips here soon. It's on EA access 9/6.

    For sure, and they don't like to step on Madden's toes too much right after release. I'd expect towards the end of next week we'll start seeing a lot more, and maybe some of their community people with advance copies.

    I personally don't. Obviously, it's a factor, but at the same time it was probably an even smaller team that initially made the NHL series into the ground breaking game it was.
    I feel like I'm beating a dead horse when I say it, but I don't think EA NHL's issues lie with the Developers at all. I'm sure a lot of them are avid hockey fans and have their own dreams and vision for the game...but at the end of the day, the Devs aren't steering the ship, they're just shoveling coal into the engine.
    It's up to the higher ups at EA which direction the game heads in, and it's become pretty obvious to me that online play is where EA sees the future of the series. I find it hard to be mad at them, because that's where they money is...but I personally feel like the pursuit of money above all else has lead to a game that has been stagnant for years.
    No offense to EA, but if the higher ups examined Franchise mode, and all they came away with was that we need better scouting...I think it says pretty much everything there is to say about how much they really care about the offline modes.
    The Devs don't get necessarily dictate what they make, just the same as I don't get to decide what we do with the servers at my work. I get input...but at the end of the day, the person signing your paycheck makes the final call.
    Ya they need to implement guys that know hockey and care about the core gameplay, AI, immersion.
    Who really wants gimmicks like pond hockey 🙄. If they build on games like previous great games -nhl99 PC, Nhl 04, nhl 13, nhl2k3, 2k8, nhl championship 2000.
    They need player specific attributes so top players play like they do, so strategy is needed w double teams , line matching, etc. As far as immersion I liked the way nhl99 did with arena sounds, boards, pads, jumbotron, etc
    I remember guys like Lemieux, messier, yzerman and Gretzky , etc were that much better and harder to stop and guys like Stevens, probert were tough and hit hard, harder to knock down in past great games ... they need to do that to bring it to a different level
