FIFA 20 Pitch Notes: Title Update #12 – Overload tactical adjustments explained & CONMEBOL update arrives!
EA has adjusted D-Pad controlled in-game tactics and the effects on team stamina in their latest patch
Fully licensed CONMEBOL competitions are now available in Career Mode and Kick Off mode as part of EA’s latest update.
The Copa Libertadores is the pinnacle of South American domestic football and it’s now in FIFA 20!
Furthermore, EA has responded to community feedback and made alterations to the D-Pad controlled tactics – specifically the overload function.
Keep reading for a full breakdown of what these changes mean.
Bringing South America’s premier competitions to FIFA is a big step for EA.
Prior to the update, Argentina’s top clubs Boca Juniors and River Plate were unlicensed.
Not only are both these Arginitan giants now licensed, but their stadiums are also available on the new update.
Players from Brazilian clubs will remain generic and unavailable on Ultimate Team – however, the clubs’ crests and kits will still be fully licensed.
Just imagine scoring the winner against your mates with the noise of some of the most passionate fans in the world blaring from your TV!
All new features will require a new save to become available in Career Mode.
Full new competition list:
- Copa Libertadores
- Copa Sudamericana
- CONMEBOL Recopa
Full new stadium list:
- Estadio Presidente Juan Domingo Perón (Racing Club, Argentina)
- Estadio Libertadores de América (Club Atlético Independiente, Argentina)
The changes to the D-Pad tactics are related to the Overload Ball-Side and Team Press.
Overload Ball-Side will now affect player stamina much more than before – 2.4 times more in fact!
This tactic is only in effect out of possession, therefore it will not affect your attacking plans.
The above image shows how little the Overload Ball-Side tactic would affect stamina, where below you can see the more realistic reflection of the high-intensity tactic.
The Team Press tactic has also undergone a change in stamina, with players stamina reducing at the same rate as Overload Ball-Side.
Your teams will have to be superfit to be carrying these tactics out now!
