EA NHL needs to put in More Advanced Create Modes!

Recommended Posts

OK, this has been driving me nuts. I constantly have the urge to pop NHL13 in & create my own team to play as, yet when I go on, I have to settle for filling out this preset template of lousy jerseys, and lame stock logos. Absolutely no creativity involved! It's so boring!!

Am I the only one?! I love playing those NHL games but this needs to be added to NHL 14 or I'll go insane!

They need to get more advanced Create a team, and Create a player modes, with the option to choose from and recolor any of the current NHL jersey designs. They need to give us the option to upload our own logos (and not just the one of the front, I also mean the shoulder patches, logo on the pants, and even the collar and a special event patch. On be a GM mode you should be able to go in and Create a new jersey for an existing NHL team as a special event jersey! You should be able to relocate the team, and design new uniforms for them as well. They also need to give the player the option to design their own goalie mask. Whether it be like WWE 13 where you can design in from pre-cut and colorized shapes, recolor and add text and logos to prefab mask designs, or upload a mask from their website using some type of template that give you the option to design and then upload it into the game via their website.

As many of you on here are artistically inclined, like myself, I'm sure you agree, Right?

Btw, there is a petition here where you can sign if you agree. I will send it to EA if/when I recieve enough signitures!

What's sad is that you can create your own custom logo in games like Black Ops but you can't in friggin' sports games.

Signed! Been asking for this for years and rage tweeting EA sports. There is no reason that we don't have this in the game. Create a team has gotten worse since 2004 and has remained the same for the better part of 5 years.

I agree 100% and the Madden series needs to do the same. I remember in the older NHL 2k titles you could use the same templates as all of the NHL teams. Plus, some of those CAT logo selections are about 7 years old. If you don't add new logos then allow us to use our own Also, they should have an 3rd uniform/ Alternate uniform option. Plus, it would be great to extend the amount of custom colors within your favorites.

It's funny because MLB 13 The Show has the exact opposite problem. It's got a fantastic create a team feature, but you can't use your team anywhere outside of Diamond Dynasty mode.

They've got a great* create-a-team mode in NCAA that - with modifications for sport - would work well in any of their titles.

*It was great when they first released it but since it's gotten no meaningful updates since then it's almost useless.

I want to see this happen. I don't create teams very often, but when I do, I want to have many options. I also wish I could customize the arena and all of the details on the ice (such as the centre ice logo and other details like that).

I also signed... My question is though, could this be possible in the PS3 or Xbox versions? Changing the colours of the jerseys I know would be easy, but its the custom logos I'd like to know.

In '13 I've done my best to do an Oakland Seals, Quebec Nordiques and Atlanta Flames but those generic crap logos that they use for teams are terrible. I'd love to put in a vintage Victoria Cougars logo. As well, I don't like all the names that you HAVE to have for the names. I'm not all that picky if the announcers say "Tonights matchup between the Canucks and Victoria." It's really not that big of a deal is it?

Yeah I agree that they should put in more team names. I think the best bet would to be to put in all of the city names & then the announcers can just call them by that.

& I think they could easily put in an option to upload your own logo. They had a feature like that in NHL 99 for PC I believe. Only it was for putting your face in the game

(which EA FIFA 13 currently has).

Even if they don't put an 'upload logo', they could do what the WWE Wrestling Game and COD do and have the option to create your own logo on the game using shapes.

Yes, yes yes. A million times yes. Uniform/logo creation in the NHL games is just awful.

I know this is an old topic, but, why isn't this a thing? We could pull some concepts from here to the game! Awesome!

I would pay serious dough for a game with a great create-a-team feature. Ditto a great create-a-ballpark feature in a baseball game. When I pop in a sports game, checking out the create modes is one of the first things I do.

That's why I used to enjoy the old nhl 2000 to about 2002 pc versions because I could mod the hell out of them. I used to frequent Cyber-NHL, Thunderpuck, DoubleMinorDownloads, NHL Depot for pc add ons. Not to mentions I could get the rosters updated with face packs et al. Most of the time I overwrote the Thrashers, Predators, Wild and Blue Jackets for the Nordiques, Jets, North Stars and Whalers.

I had that for NHL 08 I believe when they first switched to the Edge jerseys (had Eric Staal on the cover) and I was able to download a mod for all of the IIHF teams with their jerseys. The Canadian team had a ton of jerseys from their past.

My biggest problem is that I hate the awful, cheesy list of names you're limited to choosing from.
