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.

EA Sports
Constant updates have been made to FIFA 20 to keep the game fresh and up-to-date with real-life football.

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.

Using jockey to defend should be a little easier in FIFA 20.

You can find the full patches from the FIFA 20 Title Update 30 below, including visual bug fixes, presentation changes for the Premier League in Career Mode, and a few changes to selected team kits. 

The patch clocks in at about a 4.7GB download for Xbox, 4.3GB for PlayStation owners, while the Origin on PC stats aren’t available as of writing.

With the launch of FIFA 21 seeing millions of football fans across the globe start competing to try and become the best in FIFA Ultimate Team, the first Ones to Watch promo team is fast approaching. Here’s everything we know about it.

Ones to Watch follows players that have transferred to other teams, promising them upgrades for every time they make a new promo such as Team of the Week, Team of the Tournament and more.

As such, OTW cards are highly desirable, and if you get a decent one at the start of the year, you could see a lot of improvements as the season unravels.

So, here’s everything we know about Ones to Watch in FIFA 21, including release dates and times, the players included and more.
