    Not necessary to merge your Roster. It’s a patch so you should have all in if you download the patch. If not download the new EA Rosters and get back to your old custom Roster.

    With his picture and audio as well.

    That’s funny. For Lehtonen they added a picture from Jokerit Helsinki. The other new Players they updated as usual with a black silhouette. Why ?

    I can appreciate the fixes, but it would have been great if EA added an option to play with this season’s division realignment.

    I don't know why folks want this. To handle this, and then revert back to the normal NHL next season, along with the change in number of games, would probably involve a lot of work.
    No other sports game has done this........

    Well many fans, like myself, enjoy playing the game while following along with the real season. Implementing the new realignment would have been great.
    And if it was a lot of work, then they could have charged for it. I gladly would have paid an extra $10.

    Yes that trade is in the new roster update but not much else. AHL untouched. Think it's to fix uniform/equipment.

    No Equipment fixes.....:y5::y5::y5::y5:
    Don’t wanna hear it  the revenue that EA Sports is in the billions yes I know  that is not net income but they basically did a disservice to us the customers. All sport games should have accurate seasons is it a lot of work most likely. But I really don’t care this is just plain lazy  take care of your customers.
    I did not put out the phrase if it’s in the game  it’s in the game they did honor it.

    Not a single sports game has adjusted its season or league structure to account for covid related changes that have been implemented in real life.

    Paying $10 more for a shorter season. Interesting.

    You guys know you can customize the divisions yourselves, right?  EA has done plenty of wrong in this years game, but nobody else has done it and they allow you to make changes yourself

    Doesn't customize schedules though

    Nevermind your dismissive attitude because it's not something YOU want to see, you're flat out wrong. RBI Baseball updated to reflect last year's 60 game MLB season. Given the massive change in the NHL from normal, there's no excuse to not update the game to include this year's alignment and schedule. Some of us don't have the time we used to as kids and can't pour hundreds of hours into franchise mode. We'd rather play along with the current season, and at this point that's impossible.

    Oh well if RBI did it I stand corrected on that point. On the other hand, neither NBA 2K nor MLB The Show did, both of which are much more prominent than RBI.
    And it's not that I dismiss it because I don't want to see it, I just understand that the investment required might not be worth it for something that has no value beyond the first season. If 2K, with all the money they're raking in with their NBA game doesn't see it as a worthwhile investment, I can't see a game with a much smaller budget and team dedicating resources to it.

    is this old patch or a new patch, I didn't see it come up, when I logged into game yesterday :shocked:

    The patch is from January 28, so I guess it's at least a couple of months old.

    And I would pay extra $10 for about 100 new Player likenesses, updated photos from all real Players instead of black silhouettes ( or let us upload player pics from the net - would be a better option ) and that they open the function to let us recreate the EA generic Player faces from our Custom Rosters. The most EA Player faces looking far from real. Also would be glad if they change the overwriting from our Rosters after we merge them. Now it is that your custom Roster ( the EA created Players you changed potentials, ratings, equipment, beards ) will be overwritten from the new EA Roster after merging. The contrary should be, cause after merging we need to change all corrected data from the created EA Player from the beginning and this is a massive work.
