One of the NHL franchise's signature modes, World of CHEL, is getting an upgrade for NHL 21. CHEL's online ranking seasons will be extended for this year's game, because not only will you find in EASHL, but also in other World of CHEL modes as well.
In previous installments, Online Ranked Seasons were reserved for play in the EA Sports Hockey League, or EASHL. This will change for NHL 21. In the August 21 NHL 24 release announcement, EA Sports announced that new CHEL-rated seasons are coming to ONES, NHL Threes, and EASHL Drop-In games. This means you can play in ranked competitions in each of these modes and climb the leaderboards in your quest to reach the top.
Additionally, players can earn rewards in CHEL Ranked Seasons, such as unique hockey gear, items, and makeup sets that you can equip to your CHEL avatar in NHL 21. Previously, the only way to acquire new items in the world of CHEL was through level upgrades. Players can also earn an opportunity to compete in EASHL Club Finals in CHEL Ranked Seasons.
