Everything sounds nice, and dandy... But after last year I'm not even going to get excited until that game is shipped with everything they say actually in there lol.

I just hope EASHL is back because I can game with you all again on X1, if not, no hockey for me for 2 years

Thanks for the find schnoz, really good to hear what this guy is saying, he seems to know his stuff very well. With that being said it seems as if we are getting a revamped create a player, maybe actual custom celebrations will happen now instead of just diving face first along the ice haha.

One thing about it that he said was the goalies were better in his opinion, better could mean a various amount of things, I am really hoping he means better as in more realistic because these goalies they have now in 15 can literally say no you're not scoring today and literally dive, flip backwards, hit it with his stick, flip you off, tea bag you and more before you can get close to scoring, and when you do score its a little squeaker from the blue line.

Finally one last thought from me that hopefully the guy is able to answer, when you're playing 15 now and say you have just gotten a two goal lead and you go down on a two on one with fuck it Crosby and Malkin the game will literally make your player miss the net, like two on one with two of the best players and they will wing it waaay high or waaay left, which is really frustrating because you do not aim your shot differently at all it just says nope its a miss this time and I wanna be beating up on the bad kids in drop ins, it one of the best parts of this game haha.

I have put a lot of time into 15 OTP, sadly 230 GP, and with all the negatives there is for sure a bright spot, when you're with a team running plays and making quality decisions the game usually seems to turn in your favour, but when you're with someone who is constantly out of position or just makes dumb decisions the whole team seems to suffers, passes do not go through and it turns into the clusterfuckery that is NHL 15. Anyways boys thats my bit done, I am truly looking forward to running some quality games with you guys instead of DROP IN TEAL PLAYING FORWARD. Sorry gets the blood boiling haha. Talk soon guys hope all is going well.

I hear ya Big Z! I'm only 5 wins away from Legend 1 now. Had some fun games last night with the usual gang I play club with (Bong, Whiskey, Nosice, Cowboy, Elk, Miller, Two Barrel et al). We had 6 last night, so we had humans taking turns in net, though I won't go so far as to call them goalies.

It wasn't until we put a complete rube between the pipes, and switched our D guys to offense, that we won our first game. I gotta tell ya, we play better in front of a rookie. Also, it was my first game up front in all of NHL 15, and I was happy with my 3G, 1A performance (with a fight at the end to complete the Gordie Hatty). Two of my goals were slam dunk setups from my teammates, so credit to them for getting me the puck - I was just doing my usual thing and camping in front of the goalie. The third was a deflection/tip off a Nosice blast from the point. I also had 18 hits. I guess I accidentally activated beast mode, wish I remembered the special cheat code for that.

Good times were had, and I have to agree with you Z, this game does have it's bright spots at times, especially when we can start to set up the play and cycle the puck a bit more. Get the other team chasing, frustrated, and out of position, and it's goodnight Irene.

Every year, with perhaps the exception of last year, it's the same story. Everything seems promising, the community is going to be so hype brah!, etc. Call me a pessimist, but I have very little faith that this game will be an improvement over 14. Although it may automatically seem like one, simply due to modes being reintroduced (specifically EASHL of course).

I think my pessimism remains simply due to EA's annual October ritual, known as the first patch. Kids and glitchers, complain about the games difficulty. The first patch and tuner updates try to amend their complaints, and in the process turn the game into a shit show. Weakening the game, if not outright ruining it. In the grand scheme of things, I'm sure I'm in the minority in terms of people who actually want a hockey sim, not an arcade game in sim clothing. Although, looking at the yearly complaints about the game from people who aren't still in grade school, I could be wrong about who the minority is.

I look forward to the first 2-3 weeks of the game. Where realistic hockey reigns supreme, until that dreaded patch. In the mean time though, I'm certainly getting my money's worth out of FIFA.

Just saw EA and Rammer tweeted that May 19th they will do the full feature reveal. So now we wait to see if it's all we ever wanted. I'm really hoping they throw out the same style as FIFA that may the most complete OTP style I've seen! Here's to hoping.

Fingers crossed. They have a lot of repair work after last years fiasco, and it might be difficult to recoup lost customers. Sure, most people who said "I'll never buy an NHL game again" were being over dramatic, but it's those who truly are giving up on the series that they need to worry about.

I really try to play this crap they put out last year but it's so rough. Crashing into your teammates all the time while realistic if you just skate into each other, it's too hard to put a control in there to avoid randomly just running into people. Maybe like an assassin's creed type hold a button to slide by people or something. And I haven't played enough to figure out if they addressed the fact a defender could always skate as fast backwards as a max speed forward but that would be nice.

Looks like EASHL could be back according to the leaked feature set (page has been taken down but someone copied the text beforehand):
