Full Patch Notes

EA has made the following changes:

Gameplay

Made the following changes:

  • Reduced the speed at which the ball travels when performing Driven or Driven Ground crosses.
    • This effect is most noticeable when performing a Driven or Driven Ground Cross with a player whose Crossing Attribute is 75 or lower.
    • The higher the Crossing Attribute, the less pronounced this effect is.
  • Decreased how accurate a volley can be if the ball is reaching the shot taker at a high speed.
  • Adjusted referee logic to better evaluate when a yellow card should be given.
  • Further improved interception logic in situations where the defending player is directly in the ball’s path.
    • This change applies only in situations where the ball carrier is passing the ball.
  • Decreased player transition speed into a Fake Shot while Sprinting, after the Skill Move was successfully requested.

OI REF! - Referee decisions have been nerfed again

Addressed the following issues:

  • Improved animation selection logic when attempting to make a save as a player-controlled goalkeeper.
  • Sometimes, fouls around the edge of the box were resulting in seemingly incorrect ball placement for the following set piece.
    • The in-game referee made the correct decision in these situations, but the resolution of the fouling animations could make it seem as if a foul took place in a slightly different spot on the pitch.
  • Improved referee logic in situations where a professional foul is committed by the last player in defence, impacting a potential attacking opportunity.

    • This could sometimes have led to unnecessary penalty kick calls.
