Make of this what you will, it seems like they're trying to improve delay.

    We have to update our game for them to upgrade their servers?

    That's a new one.

    they're all promising until we actually play the game

    EA are all bark and no bite

    Only took near enough 2 1/2 years of champs for them to address this.
    Not gunna get happy about it till I obviously test it.but if it does have an impact and delay is gone or minimal/rare occurrence, I’ll be very happy.
    Biggest factor that completely **** gameplay.

    Need someone to substantively test it. Most of it will probably be placebo

    What if something goes wrong or not as planned? I mean how do they even know something will work without implementing it? Could it be they already done something when we had the maintenance last week? If the problem is their end I can’t see how us downloading a new update for our consoles will fix their problem?

    According to the PC lads this patch has done no more than turn games in to a 50-50 split lag/delay wise... either games are perfect, or completely unplayable to the point where only option is to RQ.

    In other words it’s changed **** all.

    How else are they supposed to add the stuff they never include in the patch notes? :#

    If I’m understanding the pitch notes correctly then if there is delay or lag it’s down to your connection rather than the opponents, so it’s bascially your own fault.

    Every match I play is sluggish/delayed so it must be my connection yet every match is 5 bars and im always the home team.
    So this update fixes it or I quit fifa.
    Have already tried 3 different isp's and have the lowest ping on every other game I play including battlefield.

    Literally the exact issue I have mate, it can’t be our connections because all of the other game we play are near perfect connection, EA just have **** up servers and it’s ridiculous that a certain % of players pretty much can’t play the game as intended because they refuse to get new servers!
    Also fairly certain that 90% of the issues are connection based such as the heavy gameplay/player taking heavy and sluggish touches/getting closed down instantly and not being able to react. I’m a FUT Founder and this is by far the worst FIFA I’ve played to date

    Depends how good your network and ping are normally.

    What you'll find with this fix is that people with good Internet will love it and people with potatoes will claim its ruined them.

    Will this just not reverse the current situation. Those that struggle with delay but have a good setup will now benefit, and those that have a poor setup but currently get good gameplay will now get the delay.
