Hey FIFA Fans,
We wanted to speak to you today about the changes contained in FIFA 19 Title Update #6, available now for PC and planned for release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the near future.
We know that gameplay responsiveness and consistency in that responsiveness when playing online is one of the community’s biggest concerns. Investigating and addressing this feedback has been a major priority for the FIFA team and we have a dedicated group working on improving the experience.
In this week's title update we made a change that we believe will improve responsiveness during gameplay, in certain modes, for FIFA 19 players around the world. You can read the specific notes about the change below:
Made the following changes:
This week's change should improve the responsiveness of gameplay for many online matches. We identified an issue where overall gameplay responsiveness in online matches could be negatively impacted by one player’s poor network connection, which was not intended. So moving forward, gameplay responsiveness should rely on each player’s individual connection, and not those they are playing with or against.
The result should be a much more consistent experience in gameplay responsiveness online, depending on the networking set-up you have.
We know that issues in this area of the game can be extremely frustrating and that is never the experience we want players to have. As with any online multiplayer game, there are a number of factors that contribute to overall gameplay responsiveness when playing online; some of these are in our direct control, and others are not. We are working to identify and solve any problems in our control right now, and there will be continued investigation and communication around any additional changes. We are dedicated to improving player experiences in this space.
