EA is at it again ...
 
I don't know how many people saw this, but it was buried in the description of the game:

Quote:

EA MAY RETIRE ONLINE FEATURES AFTER 30 DAYS NOTICE POSTED ON www.ea.com OR 30 DAYS AFTER THE LAST DAY OF THE 2008- 2009 NHL SEASON.
(from here http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-CA/ga...=0&sb=1#offers)

So, 30 days after Lord Stanley's cup has been claimed by the winning team, online play for this game is potentially dead in the water.

Way to go EA, another title to add to your winning record of supporting online features in the games that you publish.

Ummm doesn't really bother me, but i can see how it would effect die hard nhl fans. but isn't that what NHL 09 is for ? Anyway i congratulate EA on a fun action packed game. I LOVE this game !!!! :D

onemorechanc 02-11-2009 02:31 PM

OK, I probably misunderstood the text in the description. When I first read it I thought "online features" meant online play (i.e. ranked matches, etc.). After another look, it probably means other stuff.

I just hope it doesn't bork achievements (like they have done in the past).

Tron 02-11-2009 04:51 PM

its just a legal disclaimer....dont take it too serious.

besides there is only two achievements that require online and neither one require any skill just two extra controllers and 10 minutes.

Sniper07LHS 02-13-2009 03:39 AM

its just the point that they knew that the online was probably going to be shut off so they still made achievements for it anyway

INFERNOII 02-13-2009 03:56 AM

Nice pic Sniper.. Anyways on topic no ones really going to be playing this come winter anyways.. it doesnt seem to have much appeal lol

spilner100 02-15-2009 07:56 PM

"Way to go EA, another title to add to your winning record of supporting online features in the games that you publish."


...Oh you mean like Rock Band which has weekly updates of songs and new competitions almost daily? Or Burnout Paradise which is a completely different game now from when it was first released?

First of all, Rock Band releasing songs every week has nothing to do with EA. Harmonix is releasing it, not EA.

Well he said of games that they publish, Rock Band 2 is published by EA....was there any second 'of all'?

I think it's the EA sports games we need to be worried about. And will always have to be worried about it would seem (as far as online servers and online achievements).

I think this technically qualifies as an EA sports game so in the next 2 years you probably won't be able to get 200.

FonduYouLoveMe 03-02-2009 06:41 AM

I am pretty sure that all EA sports games have something similar to this, whether it is 30 days for all, I am not sure, but I would bet on the fact that shutting down the sales would kill alot of sales, and they would not do it.

But, who knows, it is EA

Medz 03-05-2009 01:05 AM

Good game... Now I would like to see them bring back some NBA JAM! Whoop Whoop! :woop:

ya...i was pissed when EA completely removed support for Live Score and Live Draft Tracker. I got my 200 in Live Score Tracker and bought the Live Draft Tracker and a week after i bought it, they removed support.
and this is what i want to do to EA for this and for NBA LIVE 06:
:grab

Dark Umbra 06-22-2009 06:07 AM

I already have all the achievements, but the online multiplayer is fun. Damn you EA, for planning to remove it. :(

MetallicaDan 06-24-2009 10:33 PM

Can you still play this game online?

91GSX 06-25-2009 10:36 PM

Yes.......

jakekh1983 07-06-2009 10:08 PM

Even if they do take it off, I actually enjoy playing against my friend locally more than I do online. I love this game!

MetallicaDan 07-09-2009 08:48 PM

I finally got my last achievement for this one (play with 3 people locally in an online match). I used my second controller and my Guitar Hero guitar. I actually competed pretty good against the other team until one guy just kept running my goalie and the other one shooting in the empty net. They should have made the goalies invulnerable I think.

AK46 Guerriero 07-18-2009 08:43 PM

is the online still workign for this???

Swisher 08-09-2009 01:33 PM

Yes it is.

MAxiMoZ 06-29-2010 11:04 PM

First LOTR BFME II , lord of THE rings conquest and now this . Dude EA really like to piss people off and only give About money!:uzi::mad:

iHeartSlampigs 01-20-2011 02:50 AM

I saw this and would just like to say..it's still on. And it helps to do half of these achievements online.

boldfoxrd 01-26-2011 06:36 PM

It is still running online. But if you're English, don't play in the morning. I failed to connect at 11am, but had no problems at 10pm :) 2 very easy achieves online!
