New FIFA 20 Patch Has Fans Hoping The Game Is Playable Again
A huge patch is set to hit FIFA 20 soon and fans are hoping it can fix a multitude of issues the game has.
The new patch notes have been released and three key issues are set to be addressed.
The three major changes will be fixes for player switching, improvement to shot quality in the box as well as adding more fluidity to ground passing.
The patch is already available to PC players and it will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at a later date.
Is this real life :open_mouth:

Switching between players while attempting to standing tackle has also been added in after many players complained about being left wide open at the back.
Player switching has plagued past installments and some fans are hoping that the latest patch will make it much tighter in terms of responsiveness.
If this is true the game will be so different from today

Shooting at close range has been updated to minimise the number of errors when one on one with the goalkeeper.
'Vertical ball velocity' as also been reduced meaning shots are less likely to balloon over the bar at such close range.
The final big change is the ground passing.
One huge frustration in the game has been the speed of passes from goal kicks.
Worst FIFA so far...
Passing is horrible, animations take forever, the high pressure is unreal, the goalkeeper takes a long time to pass the ball from goal-kick, games feel scripted.
There are just so many issues with FIFA20 is not really worth playing.

A slow run-up time from keepers allows for opposition forwards to get in front of defenders and have an easy one on one opportunity.
But the new patch is set to improve the speed of those actions as well as passes for short corners and free-kicks.
Other small fixes include improved player positioning from penalty kicks, meaning they won't look in the direction they will place their penalty.
Happy about the penalty tacker head not moving anymore. Finally be able to win pen shootouts

The big issue that still plagues EA Sports' premier franchise is their online servers.
The company have failed to figure out why their servers are so inconsistent and it hinders the enjoyment of Ultimate Team mode.
What's the point when the servers are still terrible? You could have the best gameplay in any FIFA and it'll always be let down by the servers.
