    maintenance
    the ​work ​needed to ​keep a ​road, ​building, ​machine, etc. in good ​condition

    though apparently EA are wizards and can patch a game without anyone needing to download and install anything

    A mod that doesn't even know about server side patches? Might want to educate yourself a bit before you spout off things you have no clue about.

    How exactly would a server side patch effect gameplay that is played on a peer to peer connection

    In order to be able to patch a game server side the client needs to have relevant data stored server side, which it clearly isn't as various modes can be played with no internet connection

    I don't exactly know how it works and it may be mostly P2P but at some point the info goes through one of EA's servers. That's why sometimes your connection is stable but you still get kicked and lose, you basically lost connection with EA's servers. So who's to say that it doesn't all go through?
    Or even if there's no info sent to and back from EA's servers during the game, they have sliders and the game could sync the moment you enter FUT. There's alot of ways they can stealthily change the game, don't be naive. (I'm not saying they do, I'm just saying ruling it out makes no sense)

    EA can change the game dramatically if they wished to do so without any patches through config files to modify sliders. When you connect to their servers, your console graps the metadata and config data and part of this data can be these settings

    based on these slider settings from the server, your players can miss a lot, or play very well. so the game would feel different. it is possible.

    I am a software architect btw.

    Playing Game Dev Tycoon doesn't make you a software architect

    And what would be the point to change it for some people and don't change it for many many others?

    It's a conspiracy which if spoken about would earn you a one way ticket to AzkaBAN
