I just want it to be where there is player differential and not every player playing as if they are Gretzky or Super Mario

while I am admittedly excited to draft a couple times in Draft Champions, it also strikes me as pretty damn lazy that they need to pull more modes from existing games instead of coming up with something unique to NHL.

also, Draft Champions (for both Madden and NHL) needs an offline head to head component where you can draft against your buddy on the couch. Insane that this doesn't exist.

WOW.,,can hardly wait. I am dreaming of all the great features.....
Hope this doesn't turn into socks and underwear when we get the product.
# 5 TDKing @ 05/21/16 05:34 PM
I'm calling it now, socks and underwear not only that wrong size too haha lol. I hope not though, I was ok with 16 but got it later at half price.

Franchise mode? I'm intrigued. Tell me more EA.
# 7 Diehardfan @ 05/21/16 10:25 PM
Take everything you read with a grain of salt....I was emailed this survey and I blasted them once again for NHL15 and for the horrible AI that has never been addressed. NEVER BEEN ADDRESSED. In what? 25 years. That statement alone is absolutely astounding. At least they've stopped pumping up their games with the lame promises of "much improved AI". I still buy the damn game almost every year but I'm just tired of the line of BS they feed us.

I did the survey this morning. I love maddens draft champ (as said above there needs to be a vs couch mode) however I don't know how this will translate to NHL. Pick a goalie then draft the best player available due to everyone sorta playes the same way appose to where madden where you will have massive gaps in your team.

Franchise mode... Finally something decent to play for an offline player?

Am I the only one that is skeptical? I mean this team has scrapped multiple things at the last minute before. I want to get excited but they've let me down so many times I can't allow myself to do it. I'll believe it all once we get around August and all of what they are saying actually makes it come launch.

Just based on how broad and filled with bs these feature descriptions are, my hopes the this game are pretty low.

How would Franchise be different from Be A GM?

That's exactly what I'm wondering and intrigued by.
# 14 JackFr @ 05/22/16 07:07 PM
I'm assuming in franchise mode you create a team from scratch and pick where they're from. As opposed to in Be a GM where you pick an existing team.

Great question! I'm hoping that Franchise mode will allow for online coop within a season. I have 2 guys that would buy a Xbox One yesterday if we could play coop season online.

I`m guessing its going to be like it is in Madden. It will replace Be a GM and Be a Pro as a modes and it will allow you to create player, GM or owner. I just hope this means the return of GMC within this mode since in Madden you can play both offline and online.

Hasn't 12 player physics been in since NHL 15?
# 18 actionhank @ 05/23/16 08:22 AM
At the risk of sounding too negative, this is just the usual NHL press release where everything is new and super hyped, and the details tend to show later that not much is actually that new, and things haven't changed a ton.

I'm looking forward to hearing about NHL17, but I'm definitely not getting hyped until I see some real development, some specific details, and hopefully some gameplay.

They were really good years ago at showing old vs new in terms of actual on-ice gameplay, which they sadly don't seem to do as much anymore. Hopefully they've got some much needed change to back up the excitement in their press release.

I thought it was NHL 13 or 14!

Franchise should involve arena costs, ticket/food pricing, team relocation, coach/scouts/training staff hiring/firing, etc etc. Madden had this for quite some time before.
