    I'd guess end of next week at the earliest, but it'll probably be longer based on the past few years.

    Anyone know why Hamonic is still on NYI in the game? Even after the Sept 25th roster update?

    I can't imagine he's the only one on the wrong team either

    It stuns me that they would have the game default settings at such a slow, boring, unappealing pace. Total barf...........Just got the game yesterday and had to go to the game sliders and increase "significantly" the skating speed, acceleration and agility. After that, the game seems pretty cool. How in the world can they sell their product with those kinds of settings when the NHL is the fastest game on earth and the league itself is getting even faster. So, so stupid. You can tell there are some subtle improvements to the game in terms of player control which makes the game more enjoyable and polished BUT they should be able to do a whole lot more too. For all the moves incorporated in the 2K game and the moves are so easy to execute with the skill stick, why on earth can't NHL do the same thing? Inexcusable

    Seriously?? That's where we are at with this game? Hamonic is still on the Islanders roster??

    Was thinking of buying this today but if the rosters are still that bad...I don't know. Maybe I'll wait for a competent roster update.

    I would really appreciate if they would update the rosters. I want to start a real franchise mode

    Ended up picking the game up anyway (because I'm a sucker). I downloaded the latest roster update (September 25), which is fairly accurate for the Canucks, but then I started franchise mode and the roster was different than the update. It still had guys like Upshall and Ryan White, who were released from the tryouts awhile ago.

    Did the roster update not apply to Franchise Mode? In previous games it did.

    Did you set it to your default roster?

    If you do an expansion team then it goes to default. If you do the classic it will have the new roster on it v

    Not even satire.. This about sums up everything that's wrong with EA NHL. Unless he added that you need to spend 1500 pucks or 10 dollars real life money to unlock.

    It's amazin how EA nuked the EASHL through the years. NHL18 is the final nail in the coffin. CPU way too much involved. D has been raped, somehow zero puck control and terrible passing engine is a recipe for success.

    EA catered to the worst element of gamer. The cherrypicking deke master... yay hockey.

    Everyone should not only be fired, but also beaten with reeds.

    I'm glad that Harvey the Hound has his own custom goal call while a ton players don't get their names called over the PA after they score.

    Priorities!

    NHL 18 soundtrack isn't playing for me anymore the last 4-5 times I've played? I checked settings and I haven't touched a thing before with the audio settings and the audio settings are all the way up and the soundtrack is on, it still won't play. Any help or anyone else getting this? In game commentary is fine and it still makes the clicking sounds and everything when I click on something or move the left stick in menu.

    This game is so slow to go from one page to another. Anyone else agree?

    Is anyone else's game crashing all the time? I'm on Xbox One and literally 50% of the time I try to play franchise mode it just immediately crashes, so infuriating.

    My game crashes once in a while during franchise mode. It's rather frustrating so I recommend saving often.

    There's an October roster update, puts the rosters to where they are now which is nice. They need to add the ability to use custom rosters in Expansion mode. Also not sure if anyone has noticed the merge roster button on the roster update scene, but that could be promising for those who like to add prospects for GM mode, if they fix that.

    They will never allow custom rosters in expansion because a bunch of programming would need to go in to determine which players are protected and which aren't for the expansion draft.

    Lol, Franchise Mode is unplayable. I tried to start up a new one with new rosters and all it does is crash during the the set up process.
    How do they not test this **** before they release it???

    Yeah, mine has crashed once. It worked out though because the second time I ended up winning the draft lottery.

    I am still unable to play online games other than EASHL though. EAHelp on Twitter said they'd get back to me, I replied a couple days ago asking for an update, and nothing :laugh:

    I've literally done everything they suggested, and they even told me to contact my service provider, but it's literally only the NHL game doing it.

    I had no issues with 17, and the first day of the 18 BETA everything worked, but since then? Can't play anything other than EASHL for any EA game

    It takes so long to go from finishing a game, to the next one. Compared to MLB the show, it's like going back 5 years.

    Full sim superstar is too ******* hard man.

    AI is a cheating bastard in this game on the higher difficulties.

    Just finished a game in franchise where the AI had 5 goals on 13 shots and went goal for goal against me in the shootout until I missed and lost. I had 5 on 46 shots.

    Not only that, over a two game stretch I put up over 60 shots and didn't score a single goal. One timers, cheese, deflections, nothing worked.

    How the hell are you supposed to beat these *****? They can literally score at will it seems

    Have you tried buying a router? Me and my roommate figured out we had a gateway and went and bought a router and that worked.

    On another note me and my eashl completely dominate, especially 3s. I’m a goal scoring machine. Only time we’ve lost is when were playing hammered lol

    Puck chop control change has completely thrown me for a loop. I really like the defensive skill stick, but it made me realize just how much I relied on the puck chop in previous games. Haven't gotten used to the new controls to use the puck chop with any sort of frequency in this game yet.
