    Since I assume most topics will be covered, mine are more quality of life items.

    Are the pass animations working as designed? Because some of them are weird. It almost looks like it passes the puck but forgets to initiate the animation attributed to it. Doesn’t always happen, but it seems frequent.

    Also I don’t know how to explain it other than to describe it as picture lag/motion blur? I find the image of the game doesn’t keep up with the actions of the game, and then you get this weird state where it does all the animations quicker/kind of seems like motion blur. It doesn’t seem to make the actual gameplay lag, but it’s hard on the eyes.

    I don’t have a recording of either unfortunately.

    I generally like the game after taking a few months away from NHL.

    Scoreboard is a mess, give us a small version we can place wherever. Some of the shooting animations are weird. Sometimes you want to put a rebound in, and he does like a spin shot for no reason.

    Please don’t over react and tune the game into a turd again.

    With the terrible puck pickups from NHL 15-19 i don't know why anyone would complain about puck pickups man.

    You know the routine. They will tweak them and then passes will start going through people and you'll be missing easy puck pickups right at your feet.

    I'd much rather them be over powered than tweaked and be shit again. EA isn't exactly known for tuning things ideally.

    Pick and choose your complaints.

    All the other stuff you mentioned was logical.

    Just fix the damn scoreboard please.

    There are small complaints to make but the game is overall better than 19 so whatever, I'd rather they leave it as is then make changes and it become worse.

    I find these are my issues with the current release.
    -Passing is very inaccurate and unresponsive.
    -There is very few seconds of reaction time once you have the puck before the defensive player closes in on you, I have a hard time getting passes off before I get crunched.
    - The scoreboard is too obtrusive.
    - Too many shadows playing drop in's
    - Goalies sliding post to post feels aweful.
    - Too many strange goals from rebounds. Hard to describe.
    - Music is crap..my opinion..lol
    - Game feels arcade like. Im waiting to hear FINISH HIM!!!

    I haven't seen this mentioned about the scoreboard yet: You can't see the player indicators when someone is behind you off-screen (I use 'small' sized, not sure if that plays into it). Unfortunately realized this in OT and yeah.. Can obviously just learn to count but like c'mon EA. Guess I won't be using a scoreboard until this gets fixed in 6 months.

    Yeah, this has fucked me a couple of times as well. This scoreboard is a disaster.

    - The Scoreboard is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. Why fix something that's PERFECT?! NHL 19 had it perfect, scoreboard was top left and it faded once the puck was near the top of the screen. I LITERALLY can't see the puck when the opposing teams dumps it in. I play overhead as most do and this makes Defense a joke! Turning off the scoreboard IS NOT a solution as knowing the times is imperative (special teams, end of period)

    - PASSING feels off. Everyone is complaining about passing and missing passes. I am missing point blank passes which doesn't make sense. This was not an issue in 19

    you can bump if you dont suck. you just have to use more tools than just the right stick. you cant bump in every situation. sometimes you have to stick lift or poke, or angle a guy off with the d skill stick, and sometimes you can bump. you can't just have one tool be the end all be all for playing defense

    For everyone that complains about the scoreboard: If you go to the main menu settings and go to audio/visual settings there is a 3rd option other than authentic or off for the scoreboard overlay called small. It makes the scoreboard half as thick as authentic. Can not change those settings from in a game, only the main menu.

    This also comes into play when making passes back to the D on the breakout... there is no indicator showing you were they are off screen so you have to guess where they are.

    I thought this was because of the scoreboard but now because of this post I realize that the indicators are either being blocked by it or are no longer there.

    Thanks it explains why I couldn't see them.

    I also use zone and smallest indicators.

    Why even put this thread up, EA's just gonna ignore all the complaints and change everything that you guys think works anyways.

    That being said the animation for when you get bumped is just stupid. Resets any buttons you're pushing and locks you up for a few seconds, sick. Seems like the longer this game stays out the closer they're going to try and make it to NHL 19. Not sure why they didn't just make Xbox more like PS when it came to bumps like people wanted.

    Also can anyone tell us what the last 2 tuners actually DID? There's literally nothing anywhere about them. First 2 days of 20 felt great, then i got a tuner and bumps were out of control again, then a tuner yesterday and now it completely feels like 19. Suppose EA's just completely done with the community feedback now. You either like what they do or get off the ride.

    would you prefer being body checked not lock your player up instead of locking your player up? I think that would make defense pretty rough if you cant body someone off the puck

    If you're behind someone and you tap them in the back in in real life, does that player just stop what they're doing like its flag football or pass/shoot the puck? Locking players because someone is in the general vicinity and touched them shouldn't lock the person up and reset all button commands. I'm fine with people bodying others off the puck if they're actually in their position like the beta required, not this more like NHL 19 spam RS when you get close to me bullshit.

    But again EA hasn't taken any feedback and done something about it for the last 6 years lets no hold our breath.

    In real life people absolutely can get hounded from behind stopping them from what the want to do. I dont think you would want them to get more realistic because then its just a huge trap fest and even less space for players
