On October 2, 2020, EA released NHL 21 to EA Game Changers, and according to footage seen from their gameplay videos, your only option is the Champions Hockey League tournament (that is if you want to play in Europe), and you're limited to the teams who are in that said tournament! Meaning, you *CAN'T* play an entire season or two with any European team in the game you'd like. You also no longer can play an entire season with the OHL, WHL and QMJHL, and instead you're only limited to the Memorial Cup tournament, and they need to bring back that option if you want that "NHL 21 overhauled Be A Pro mode is the most in-depth and authentic experience to date" as they stated.

And once you are in the NHL, I assume you can't go back to Europe, if you can't play regular seasons of any Euro leagues in the first place.

My problem is that EA didn't give us any words beforehand that you're only limited to these conditions. So a lot of European fans were probably super excited that they get to play Be A Pro with their team. But are gonna be disappointed that their team isn't an option. And when it is an option, they can only play the CHL tournament!

Because of this lack of warning, I want this petition to change this little flaw from Be A Pro in a future patch perhaps, and give us the option to play full seasons with the Canadian juniors (e.g. OHL, WHL and QMJHL), and European leagues included in the game (e.g. SHL, Liiga, DEL, NLA, EBEL, Extraliga and Hockeyallsvenskan) as promised, and then get drafted to the NHL. If they can already be played in regular season mode, I see why not bringing their season schedule over to Be A Pro. And we should have the privilege to also go back to Europe, either if we're not good enough to play in NHL, and we have to play in AHL instead. Or just by choice, signing few years contract with a European team you love so much.

I don't care if they don't have the real trophies modeled in the game, just skip the cup celebration cutscene, or replace it with some generic trophy already modeled in the game (i.e. EA Cup)

As a European NHL gamer, I pre-ordered NHL 21 after the Be A Pro trailer was released on October 1st, because I wanted to play this new and awesome Be A Pro experience, not only with NHL, but also with my local team Helsinki IFK, who plays in Finland's pro hockey league known as Liiga.

In the NHL 21 Be A Pro trailer, they stated "NHL 21 overhauled Be A Pro mode is the most in-depth and authentic experience to date". That is if you're in the NHL I assume!
