EA SPORTS have dropped Title Update 13 for FIFA 20 which sees a few changes made to connection for online matches, in-game animations, and a few bug fixes. 

In addition to their constant updates for Ultimate Team in the form of new cards, squad building challenges, and squad battles, EA SPORTS has been constantly updating FIFA 20 whenever a few new problems arise.

In the last patch, the developers nerfed the uber-popular overload ball side tactic so that players would lose stamina a tad faster than normal. In the new patch, Title Update #13, they’ve focused on other things like glitchy animations, a better indication of your connection to a match, and a few tweaks for Career Mode.

The highlight change in the new update for FIFA 20 comes in the form of the tweaks to the animations. Since the updated physics were introduced a few games ago, players have been left frustrated with supposed ‘fouls’ leading to penalties, sending offs, and all-around bad play.

Now, the developers have noted that players will no longer perform contextual grabbing animations while in a Jockey state, so that they can defend a little easier and not go rushing into a foul.

Elsewhere, tweaks have been made to ensure that Ultimate Team matches will have a better connection, as a numerical indicator will show the ping to data centers.

This means that you’ll no longer just have the on-screen bars to represent what is a good connection between players. You will actually be able to judge if the game is going to lag all that much when it starts.
