Well finally the new roster for NHL 08 is out. This makes just two, but both have been fantastic, right down to all the AHL players changing.
To go along with the update though was a VERY unexpected change. No longer are you limited to 3 vs. 3, but now you can play 6 on 6!!!
Brilliant move on EA’s part. I played one game which was 4 on 4 and there was zero lag involved. I’ve had frequent games with noticeable lag when it’s 3 on 3 so hopefully they have stronger servers to handle the traffic.
Assuming everyone knows how to play hockey and plays their position properly, 6 on 6, or even just 5 on 5 is a real joy here.
Now hopefully everyone stops crying and being little babies wondering where the roster update is. Looks like we know why it took so long! I for one am GLAD it took this long if we get this added bonus!!
