    Yep - it happens as soon as you load up a new FIFA, as long as you have the old FIFA saved on your cloud (Xbox) - it'll say something like transferring hospitality settings or something like that, so you go in with the same difficulty, settings, sliders, etc.

    I didn't really notice much new this year other than a few cosmetic features but it's on sale for 30 dollars tomorrow, why not?

    I haven’t touched the series in years so maybe it’ll be worth the $30 tomorrow.

    If you play online it sucks most likely as usual.

    The gameplay offline as long as you take some time, work some sliders, figure your strategy is amazing. My AI is functioning perfectly, the goalies are great. I am having a blast just had to Ben patient with the game and go back to the old school days of Franchise mode.

    Yup, the team strategies and line strategies are extremely important. Back for NHL16 I made a pretty comprehensive post about this. The system is still basically the same and most should still apply.

    Nice buddy. Great post. That should be bumped everytime a new game comes out.

    I am guilty of this to, but I think people think Sports games are just pick up and play when they aren't.

    Just want to point out that it's been confirmed that team and line strategies do not effect simulations in Franchise Mode.

    It hasn't for awhile, it's a massive pet peeve of mind and I'm hopeful they will in the future.

    I know it's a lot to ask, but I wish the GM mode was like Eastside Hockey Manager or Franchise Hockey Manager.

    A GM mode like that with decent EA gameplay would make me extremely happy

    Which ruins the mode, personally speaking.

    But each to their own.

    With all due respect, I don't know how anyone could love this turd of a game.

    You like losing the puck when someone breathes on you? You like getting punished in EASHL for faceoffs when you have an AI Centre? Or how about facing off a guy who does the same faceoff every time and wins? You like god awful AI and goaltending that lets in a floater at least once a game.

    This is a development team that removes features to prop them up as innovations years later (like the defensive skill stick).

    I have no clue how this crap game could be an esport. It's not fun to play. It's boring to watch. It has a pathetically small market.

    You do lose the puck easily in most cases but its better than being able to hold protect puck and never lose it. Makes you need to be creative or pass more. I play center in EASHL and have somewhere around a 52%-55% faceoff win %...I don't see how this has changed? Some games its real tough but its still all on timing and winning the correct way against how your opponent is winning. I've played about 120ish games of EASHL between club and drop in as well. I've also seen limited floaters go in. Most goals are 1 timers. My biggest issue is when a guy goes wide its almost like the goalie cheats and they score really bad angle goals when trying to cut to the net.

    I try and play about 80% of the games in any given franchise season, usually only sim against weaker teams maybe 10-15 games. 3 min periods. Lots of time on my hands gets her done pretty quick.

    This thread was started by me specifically talking about Franchise mode and altering the sliders. Go complain about other game modes somewhere else.

    HF boards I think this guy is trolling as his post is unrelated to my original post and he is obviously trying to draw a reaction. Ban him from this thread please.

    Ban from thread because my opinion differs from yours?

    I’m specifically talking about gameplay. Instead of having a rebuttal, you’re having a tantrum because someone thinks differently. It’s not trolling.

    I’m sorry you’re that sensitive. The game stinks.

    I like playing and watching NHL 18.

    Also, it's not surprising for EA to bring back certain features to promote purchasing their latest releases: For example, NHL 19 when 2018-2019 season begins.

    Again, I’m talking about gameplay and how it’s awful. I did nothing wrong.
