Today, I want to announce my retirement from making addons for NHL 09. There are few good reasons why:
1. NHL 09 became boring for me.
I'm playing FIFA 18 (soon 19) since May and Madden NFL 19 since august and that progress with Frostbite Engine is just incredible. Playing the matches game after the game became too much boring thing for me. I don't want to play casual matches, I want be a coach for a team, I want to buy a players, negotiating contracts, manage the club like in FIFA and Madden and this game it's just too old for this, too unstable on W10 and newest HW in a comparison with Frostbite Engine sports games.
2. No ideas for next addons and half-dead community.
I miss that times when Tomahawk on TBN released in 2012 NHL jersey pack within 2 weeks after new jerseys were revealed. Right now, it's about 1 year and 4 months after Adidas revealed new jerseys and there is no full pack of jerseys for 2017-18 season or 2018-19, same with new WC jerseys and Olympics.
3. Personal life.
I graduated at high school before this summer. I will not go to the college, I decided to go to the army so I won't have a time to make another addons.
I started making addons in 2012 at TBN, so it was a long route for me to this point.
Here is a list of all my addons which I created:
-Facepacks (TBN 2012,2013)
