NHL 21 World of Chel Features, Details & Improvements Revealed

EA Sports has shared plenty of details about the new features and improvements coming to NHL 21 World of Chel mode, including the introduction of WoC Seasons, practice mode and much more.

Here are just some of those details in the blog:

  • New Ranking System
  • Club Final Championship at the end of each season
  • Traits rework + New Traits added at the start of each season
  • Practice Mode
    • Club Scrimmage
    • Open Practice
    • Free Skate
  • Server Select for Private Matches
    • For third party leagues that use the Private Game option from the Clubs 3v3 or 6v6 Dressing Rooms, we have added a sub option that allows for the group to choose which game server location they want to host the game from.
  • Human goalies can control the extra attacker now
    • Human Goalies who skate to the bench, can now control the extra attacker player (who would normally be an AI skater).
  • WOC Menu Restructured
    • With WoC Seasons being so integrated into the core WoC experience we felt it was a good opportunity to restructure the HUB a bit. The Clubs HUB is now accessible from the WoC HUB. Multiplayer modes are clustered in their own section and Pro-Am is more visible to our newer users.

Those are just some of the new features and improvements, make sure to read the latest NHL 21 blog for more details.

  1. I just hope the dance routines are again updated in this mode to reflect Instagram standards and semi-porn Twitch girl streamers Lol :(
    That's what got kids hyped before a hockey match, according to EA sports, I see 🤔
    I'm not even disappointed, this is great lol. I had 0 expectations because I know this is NHL 20.5, not NHL 21. This year is simply a patch to NHL 20.
    Going to skip this year altogether. Will just keep playing 20 on EA Access.

    Do people actually call the game chel?
    When I was trying to pronounce the initials, I always called it "nitchel"

    Linguistically, but not accurate academically, its En-Ay-Chel. I have no idea if anyone actually ever used the term Chel before the game. It's absolutely silly. But that's part of the point.
    It's a great mode, and there is a fair amount of single player content included. It's a great way to transition more players over to EASHL, which EA wants to lock down as so good no one will try to make a competing hockey game.
    Enough with trying to lure the casual crowd in. NHL is not a casual league, it’s a mostly die hard only league. It is what is is. Those that like hockey love the sport, people don’t just casually watch a 2 and half hour game. So the fans, the die hards want a game that best represents what we see on tv  for gameplay and we want a franchise that best  depicts the front office off ice activity.  The game needs a massive board play overhaul, front of the net overhaul and reworking the nuetral zone and with that zone entries. We don’t need more   slick dangles and absurd celebrations.
    I've never even clicked on this mode so I couldn't care less. I guess this is for those players that complain about a goalie mask or equipment not in the game. Who the hell cares? Seriously, this is all a waste of resources, and with the supposedly limited resources this team has, they should've improved the game, not add trash.
    Does anyone actually play World of Chel? Not EASHL but the mode where you decide if you want to wear cargo pants or sweatpants? Just a complete waste of time by the EA Staff for continuing to put resources into this and not solely EASHL

    I'm personally not very interested in being transitioned where EA wants to transition me and I'm definitely not excited for them locking down competition.
    I play the CHEL 3v3 drop ins in NHL 20 and it does help for practice for when you team up in Pro Clubs but that is all I ever used it for.  So now that Pro Clubs has practice modes I wont touch World of CHEL other than having to open the Hockey bags with all of the visual customization stuff...

    I just have no desire to play this mode .
    I tried playing these modes several times and it's soon painful trying to complete a game it's like watching the clock tick away.
