Can't wait for this game but I know I'm going to be disappointed when it comes out.

Yeah, honestly the BAP is going to be what sells me on the game. I have hope for better loading times but doubt they will bother with it... if the BAP looks lame then I won't buy it.

I'm not really an online gamer so it's mostly offline stuff that will sell me.

I'm interested in the BAP revamp myself. Didn't really play it much last year.

I tried playing BaGM again (actually playing not simulating). Now I remember why I stopped it. Flaws of BaGM combined with the flaws of the gameplay make me rip my head off. I've been playing Dynasty/Be a GM since 04 and this is the first time I need to keep a long break from playing cause it's terribad. They really need to revamp Be a GM. And they're not going to.

Which is the reason my last purchased version was NHL '11.

Hot streak / cold streak ratings are implemented INCREDIBLY STUPIDLY... leave it to EA to **** up something so simple. When a player is on a hot streak, how does he suddenly become faster, stronger, more agile, a better fighter? This makes no sense. You can't apply hot and cold streaks to physical attributes. Things like shooting accuracy, deking, poise, awareness, sure. But limit it to where it makes sense.

You do realize that overall is made up of the individual statistics right? Do you want them to just boost the overall by 4, but not change the individual stats? That would literally make them the exact same player but one has a higher overall for show

Your nit picking. When your hot you have more energy, you might have a little more jump in your legs and get a little quicker. When your confident and on a hot streak you might feel a bit stronger to go lay someone out or win a fight. There is nothing wrong with what they did.

Same goes when your on a cold streak, you might feel more sluggish and skate a little slower, not have the same jump and energy.

Not at all what I said. You have it backwards. What they're doing is bumping overall and bumping ALL individual stats by a RANDOM value to achieve that +4,5,6 overall. I suggested that they should bump individual stats instead of bumping every stat. So if Datsyuk scored 10 goals in 5 games, bump his shooting accuracy/puck control/deking and not his speed, checking, fighting, and everything single other stat.

True that you may be slightly better, but you don't just jump from 90 to 95 in skating instantaneously. It's ridiculous. You don't just become the fastest skater in the entire NHL because you scored a hat trick that week.

what's worse is that hot and cold streaks are only in play now and online. So basically, it's more frequent roster updates. There are no hot and cold streaks in Be A GM.

That's what I was afraid of. EA never fails to disappoint.

The chatter here is the slowest I have ever seen it less than two months before a new release. I think EA is finally succeeding in their mission to alienate their base. The market really is ripe for another company to make an effort to compete.

Well NHL 13 was a huge disappointment. And this game is essentially new animations, a gimmick mode, and a better fighting engine. They're obviously holding back for the next gen release of NHL 15.

Yeah, it really angers me when I see people getting excited and tweeting "#NHL94isback." You're excited that EA is making a game mode where the ice is blue, you have a star around you instead of a circle, and you use basic controls (which have always been available as an option)? This is worse than when EA was trying to play Legends off as the big addition of the year.

No hot cold in be a GM ?

EA needs to step it up this year.

Gamers on a tight budget like myself have options, FIFA 14, GTA 5.... And more...

I'm not going to shell out 80 bucks for a mediocre NHL game.


The whole production team needs to go except Littman, when he was in charge the game was on top.

We need a change and competition, there's money to be made. God I miss 2K.

Wait, it's confirmed hot/cold streaks aren't in GM/BAP? If so that sucks.

"EA Sports has revealed a new feature called 'Dynamic Ratings Updates' which will base player ratings in-game on how that player performed in the real world."

"It's also good to note that these changes will come via updates that will require an online connection in order to be downloaded and kick into effect."

That doesn't say they wont do an automated version for Be-A-GM though. If they didn't I'd be quite upset. They had it before... it wouldn't be hard to implement.

This forum isn't even 10% of the franchise's fanbase. But I do agree that a company could push EA to make a better product, every business needs competition.

I'd suggest going back to the last thread where I talked about the changes they were making to the game and how it's more than just new animations, a gimmick mode, and a better fighting engine.

They are doing a lot with this game as far as actual gameplay changes. I also am 100% sure that they aren't going to add too much new **** otherwise you won't have anything else to come out with next year. These games are made in a year, if you were expecting a whole new you then you thought wrong. What did you expect them to do when a new console generation is right around the corner?
