  1. It was a half hearted attempt at a season opening roster attempt, but hey, at least it is something I suppose... Still a few guys that have played since the season started are missing (Yegor Chinakhov being one who played in both the AHL and NHL)... Thank God I did my own rosters and CAPs to start my Franchise... The good thing is, of the ones they added, and had to edit attributes from their junior or overseas careers, I am pretty spot on in terms of overall with many being exact and the others being + or - 1 attribute point from what they gave them... I will stick with mine and wait for I guess the December update (that will probably be the only one worth a crap) to start my ECHL season... Silhouettes don't bother me, just wish EA would make it like MLB TheShow and allow CAP silhouettes, because some of us are pretty good getting them close enough to their actual likeness..
    Another poor attempt at a roster update,why would I want to use black shadows for players and 20 year old rookies who all look the same 40 year olds.****e.

    Agree, it was a poor attempt... Half arsed thrown together and really not everyone was added... I know the NHL series doesn't have the budget of a Madden or FIFA but still...
    Those who are complaining.. really what are you expecting? Rosters are usually crap till later in the season. Just make your own roster and go from there. Simple as that. And black silhouettes, get over it! You people complain about the same crap every year don’t buy the game if you’re gonna do the same every year!

    Didn’t buy it, have the Trial which got locked after the release and got my information about Silhouettes from Twitter.

    So, apparently some players (Wilson, Caufield, Mantha) lost their face scan with the roster update. Good job, EA, good job once again...

    Really ? They put them out in the update from yesterday ? but at old from Oct. 9th they are in ? What’s going on there. Very unprofessional

    I just read that on the official forums, couldn't check for myself.

    Oh.... your one of those people
    I don’t think it’s a lot for anyone to ask to have players that are actually playing in the respective leagues that EA has licenses for are in the game. Imagine picking up madden and at release Trevor Lawrence isn’t in the game because he hasn’t played an NFL down, or because he did not submit paperwork on time? It’s a ridiculous excuse. You pay for the license so use the license. Their are players like Matthew Boldy who were playing in the AHL last season still not in the game. People “complain about the same things every year” because every year it’s the same thing.
    And secondly. Aren’t you the same guy who made a thread complaining that the colors on helmets and gloves don’t match team colors, without even using the search function to uncover that there was already a thread discussing the topic?

    I am not optimistic about. The past showed us not to be. In my opinion Roster share will not come in early December. I have the feel it will be January. Would like to see a Roster share with possibility to upload Bio pics in our Custom Rosters. If EA don’t want to add Pics to new added Players, than they should let us do this. Better options to create faces would also wishable. But guess will be only a dream to get. By the way, all the past years had sick Rosters created by myself which had+300 missing Players with best possible appearance but didn’t make me really happy with black Silhouettes.
    Oh.. Snap!!

    Yes colours are more noticeable especially when they had it right the last few years, plus I see them while playing. While the silhouettes has been there for as long as I can remember. So that’s nothing new. There are other things to worry about over silhouettes. I’d rather them to give players cyberfaces over worrying about silhouettes. To me silhouettes isn’t a big deal cause it’s been in for YEARS so I’m used to it. It’s not top on my list to get fixed.
    Them taking cyberfaces off the 3 players.. not cool!

    I agree with you there.Cyberfaces are far more important.And taking out those cybers what a mess.

    Faces have returned.

    I noticed in my Trial at the update from today that they have reworked many generic faces. Many looking now better in appearance. That’s a step in the right direction. Also saw some new haircuts at generated Players. Seems we got more options for our CAP‘s. Loved to see it. By the way ... posted about the missing likenesses of Mantha, Wilson, Caufield earlier today in EA‘s Twitter account. Maybe this why they released this update today.

    An yet another update with Chinakhov.... Did they drop the 10-22 roster just to add the three faces that were removed??? LAME!!!!!

    I guess they did exactly about this.

    They broke something, **** those guys!
    Then they fixed it, **** THOSE GUYS!
    Look, I'm not one of those EA slappies, but you can't pass on everything they do.

    Why are some jerseys insanely detailed while others aren't? Compare Vegas and Washington to the Flyers & Senators in game.
    What does that have to do with rosters?

    I don’t think any of that is under EA’s control. Players don’t become a part of the union until they’ve played a game on an NHL active roster. It doesn’t matter that Boldy played in the AHL last year. He wasn’t part of the union so EA doesn’t have his player rights. They aren’t going to negotiate with players so they can appear a week earlier.

    Except they've hundreds of players in-game that have yet to even play a game in the AHL, so it can't be just that. I do believe it's NHLPA related, but it probably more complicated than just playing one game in The NHL.

    They have the AHL license. It’s literally listed right there on the start up screen. There are tons of guys on the base roster who are in the AHL that have never played in the NHL. Heck there are tons of guys on the CHL rosters (once again, they have the license) that haven’t even been drafted in the NhL yet. This is not a valid excuse. If you have the license for a league you should have every player available in that league at your disposal

    League licenses do not give access to ANY players. Those are through player associations. It gets messy with non NHL leagues as not all of them have unions. When a player does not belong to a union with which EA has a license agreement in place, that player has to sign a waiver to be included in the game.

    There are plenty of guys who played less games than Matthew Boldy in the AHL last year and they are in the game. Granted I do think there is things behind the scenes that are not so black and white, but if a player has an entry level contract with an NHL team, they should be made a priority to get in the game. Considering Matt Boldy is 99.9% probably going to get NHL minutes this year, I don’t think that is to unrealistic of an expectation for the sake of realism tbh. We are not talking amateurs here, we are talking about guys who have already signed professional contracts

    You're right but until the stipulations of the licensing contracts are changed to allow what you're asking for, EA can't just change the way they do it.
    Looks like they removed Nov 2 roster update.And with the new patch that adds player likenesses does that mean we have to download a new roster.At this rate I
    will take 6 months to start a updated Franchise.

    As I know you need to download a new Roster for faces and Jerseys. Jerseys you will have in your actual played Franchise mode, faces not. For gameplay bugs we need the patch.

    As I found out that in the Roster they removed two days ago, the Player likenesses from Kaprizov, Sturm, Miller and Krug was in. Maybe an EA Employee pushed the Button to early ;-)
