EA Sports released their first patch for “NHL 14” on Tuesday, which addresses a host of presentation and gameplay issues that hindered the release version of the title, EA said in a press release on their official site.
Among the gameplay changes patched were issues that allowed players to spam faceoffs by picking and holding sides and crash-inducing moments such as a controller being pulled out during a hit and if the player scored a goal knocking the water bottle off the net at the same time a player was being called for goalie interference. There was even a bug that allowed disallowed goals to count.
Other changes in the patch were more cosmetic (correcting jerseys and adding the correct photos for certain players) or geared towards the other modes, such as “Live the Life,” GM Connected and Ultimate Team.
“Thanks to all our players and fans who helped identify the issues below that have now been addressed. We appreciate your support and feedback to ensure that EA SPORTS NHL continues to deliver the best hockey video game experience,” EA said in the release.
