    Initial thoughts:
    -Goalie interference penalties are a thing again! Scored a goal but called it back and got a penalty for it
    -Shot blocking is super nice, LB is so much nicer too. Looks legit and effective
    -Protect puck is really nice now, can really power to the net
    -I really like that it's not black and white between missing a pass and intercepting it. You can actually deflect pucks away.
    -You can whiff one 1ts if the pass is a bullet
    -Might be in the minority, but I like the passing so far. Passes where you aren't facing the receiver is actually hard and now automatic. And passes where you are looking at the player it is fairly easy. Firing a bullet at players isn't an auto pickup which is good imo. Also not many forces so far due to the deflected pucks
    -Tip animation look nice, haven't seen a deflection goal yet tho.
    -Directional goalie poke is a nice add

    -Vibrational feedback from hits and shots seems lacking or delayed
    -Not a big difference in speed. Did a speed test with a buddy in practice. 82 speed vs 89 speed and the difference was maybe 3-4 feet from goalline to goalline.
    -Bumps are OP but I like that the player getting bumped keeps his momentum rather than slow down
    -Haven't seen a tripping penalty yet.....
    -Don't like the build height limitation. Wish you could make a 6'0 PWF or 6'3 PLY imo.
    -Lose the puck too often on dekes with high dekeing

    Really? I like G so far, I figured out how the game wants me to play what I feel comfortable using and I like it.

    Goalie interference being a minor penalty is horrible.

    Puck pick ups are by far my biggest concern so far

    I like the game play itself so far but the issues I'm having are things like the camera angle being wrong for both overhead and zone.
    Unable to remove the x factor badges no matter how many times I select it to be turned off they still show up.
    I want to know how long club finals actually is because "greatly reduced" doesn't mean anything to me and if it's more than like a few days I'm simply not buying this game.

    Passing could use a little work. One touch doesn’t really work as well at all times like 21. Some passes are just so soft when I’m cooking them. Also receiving passes seems to be a challenge in itself. Ps5 by the way.

    You cant change camera in the game, you also cant do it at the home screen...to get the camera to change you have to do it from the WoC hub settings menu, hope that helps

    Passing is realistic, puck pick ups are hit and miss, the crouch block as a defence is better, the stick being on it's own is great, the ice and visuals are way better, the unlocked icons need to be bigger it can be hard to read at times the performance of the game is better, the syncing and loss of connection needs to get better its happening to much atm. the camera selections are different.

    No cross console is going to ruin the player base even worse than it already is. Wait times are brutal, passing is inconsistent, bad glitches where some players are playing and some aren't. Overall i like the game but i dont think we can survive splitting the community that is already so small. Club was bad this season and last, trying to gather or find games late i cant imagine how bad it will be with a 60-40 split in player base. Not to mention the complete launch failure of not sending out emails or the ea help desk having 0 information that the beta was even dropping. Overall, as well as they make the game its a complete disappointment and very clear all they care about is money and not the community. Making ps5 players spend 30 extra dollars to cross when they could have easily just kept us happy and got there money from in game aesthetics. Just an complete embarrassment to the people who have bought there game for that last 20 years.

    I was only kidding with this. Goalie is actually pretty good so far. Only thing i dont like it RS down for desperation. But unfortunately little kids will cry and complain they cant score and EA with dummy down goalies and screw them like they always do. So consider this a post release rant lmfao.

    Camera issues starting with auto zoom and blind spots right now the only playable view for me on defence is zone view the passes need to be well aimed and power controlled more then other seasons especially when and depending on the attributes and perks of the player your passing too seems to be harder to score with a player lacking scoring attributes great new way to start playing with new builds to an extent there's alot of reading with the perks as well but others are straight fwd like plus 2 puck control for example . I don't feel the puck battles or pick ups to be quite there yet but can see that the direction and animations for the puck battles to be different and possibly in a good way

    Two observations so far:

    Hard to tell sometimes who has the puck in 50/50 or puck battles and overhead camera, especially when playing D is a mess. Have to hit select back and forth 2-3 times coming up the ice to make sure you’re properly positioned and can see whole play… was not a problem in 21 unless pick was behind opponent net and you were way back in your zone
