EA Sports has released a new update for FIFA 19 that includes both gameplay changes and bug fixes. The update is available now on PC and will be coming soon to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The update makes it so players can adjust Game Plans in the pause menu during a match, and so changes made to player positions in the pause menu to the Balanced Game Plan apply to all Game Plans. As well as this, player position changes when switching to a Game Plan with a vastly different formation to the Balanced Game Plan will not automatically happen.
“For example, if you are playing with a formation, on your Balanced Game Plan, that has a Left Back, and swap a Striker into the Left Back spot, and then change to a Game Plan where there is no Left Back, such as a three at the back formation, the swap may not be made automatically,” EA explains.
Another area being adjusted is bicycle kicks. Following the update, players that do not meet the agility requirement will no longer be able to perform them, the kicks will no longer happen in unrealistic situations, and the kicks are now more likely to fail.
Finally, changes have been made to matchmaking in Ultimate Team’s Division Rivals to reduce the difficulty of finding a match, including removing the opponent’s established date, club name, and online ID.
