Manual scouting appears to work but that is very slow and not ideal to be using. Auto scout needs to be fixed.

*UPDATE*

This should now be fixed in today's patch:

 

Franchise

  • Fix for an issue where defenders were not showing the correct line chemistry values.
  • Fix for an issue where Auto Scouting would not rope in early round prospects.
  • Fix for an issue where you were unable to see the goalie filter when assigning a scout.
  • Fix for an issue where LD and C are mislabeled in the edit lines screen.

 

*UPDATE*

I'd have thought that with delaying the launch by a month, they could use some of that time to straighten out the game and make it not too buggy on launch, but here we are. I'm disappointed that there is no GM connected and not even being able to play the offline game modes properly because of bugs at launch is ridiculous. At this point I'm not really sure why I keep putting out the money for the games. They have been behind the curve of Be a Pro by a few years, to games ALSO MADE BY EA. I understand that the Madden and NHL devs most likely never work together, but I'd at least want to see these people on the NHL team see the consumers' reactions to other similar products on the market and say, "huh, maybe we can do that to get more people to play NHL." People have been asking for GM connected to come back since it was taken away, still nothing there; there have really only been pushes on the pay to win front until this year, and even then the bugs in HUT still seem to be the only ones they care about because other than selling game copies, that's what makes the money, microtransactions. I didn't pay for an early access indie game, I paid for NHL 21 by EA Sports. I wanted to pay for a game I could play, not one that I have to wait for the next installment of the franchise to play a broken game mode. Someone feel free to stop and correct me, but all it takes to see what the people want is to look up 4 words on google and look at some reddit thread and bam, there you have another bunch of tens to hundreds of thousands of copies sold because you listened to what the fans want instead of putting in a 15th variant of the 3 on 3 play format that gets stale after about 25 minutes.

@6363722 Adding onto this issue. In a different thread I did have an EA rep confirm that this is being worked on and that EA is aware of this issue

Did they give any kind of timeline? Having to manually scout every year would be a pain. Doing school right now so having to manually scout when I do get a chance to play the game would feel like I'm wasting my free time.

@HockeyPro19zzz No they didn’t. They aren’t giving timelines in anything. The rosters are out to lunch and there’s lots of bugs so I’d suspect they’re not in a huge rush to fix things because they continually say the game is playable

The scouts aren't doing any scouting in Franchise mode. Google search suggests this is a common issue that was not present in nhl20
