    EASHL beta for NHL 16 will be available Jul 30th: https://www.easports.com/nhl/eashl

    NHL 15 was crapped on a lot last year for missing features - looks like they're coming back for '16. I liked '15, looking forward to '16.

    They dropped the player progression grind. That may be good, may be bad in the long run. It kept people from leaving games early, and/or fucking around in drop ins(somewhat). Hopefully there will still be some sort of unlock incentive to keep people straight, and ingame, or at the very least a penalty cooldown to join another if you quit a game early.

    really looking forward to 16 and having EASHL again! on the in-game menu the other day they said there should be an e-mail re: eashl going out towards end of july.
    One thing i hope they fix is the weird auto-deke system. if i'm on a breakaway and try to go backhand it just always does some weird deek and never what i want especially if trying to go like tripple deek or something. at least the option to turn it off would be good!

    in EASHL you had stats you had to achieve to get to the next level to unlock more skill points for your players

    I stopped caring about the newest NHL games long ago. I still enjoy playing them, I just can't justify paying $60+ a year for the exact same game with new rosters. While everyone is playing NHL 16 I'll just be happy to be able to play NHL 15 on Xbox with EA Access. I never play it online, so not having the newest version doesn't bother me.

    arseholearsehole I think the grind being gone will help level the playing field for casual gamers vs people that play every day and look for exploits constantly etc etc but of course then there's the rage quitting. not sure how they're going to entice people to finish the game without worrying about getting the shitty ratings that will slow them up.
    either way...i'm just happy to have eashl back, hopefully it will be a much better iteration than 15 was overall

    I stopped in 10 or 11 because that's how I felt then. There was no progression from 08 until that point.

    Been meaning to pick one up for the ps3 for awhile now but never get around to it. Anyone in particular I should try for or will any 13/14/15 I find for the right price will do?
