EA has detailed the next big update for FIFA 19 that aims to address issues with gameplay responsiveness when opponents have a poor connection.
“We know that gameplay responsiveness and consistency in that responsiveness when playing online is one of the community’s biggest concerns,” a blog post reads. “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.”
According to the patch notes, the update makes improvements to gameplay responsiveness when an opponent’s network connection may be experiencing packet loss or high latency in FUT Champions, FUT Division Rivals, FUT Online Draft, Pro Clubs, and Co-op Seasons.
“This week’s change should improve the responsiveness of gameplay for many online matches,” EA adds. “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.”
This update is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
