In a blog post this week EA Sports revealed online improvements being made for NHL 14. New will be the Online Seasons mode that has been successful in other titles and will be integrated here in EA Sports Hockey League.
Just like the real NHL, teams will get points for playing through each game. At the end of a Seasons game, the Seasons Progress Report screen shows goals needed for the club to reach the next level. The ultimate goal is to work up through the divisions, winning Playoff Cups, earning Division Titles and finally claiming the coveted League Title Trophy.
There will also be the ability to make ranked challenges if teams are within two divisions, changes to the Hockey Shop, attribute caps, and a streamlined process to select positions.
