EA SPORTS have dropped Title Update #14 for FIFA 20, with the emphasis of the new changes being placed on the Overload Ball Side tactic.

Though the footballing world has ground to a stop due to the ongoing global health pandemic, EA SPORTS have continued updating FIFA in a number of different ways.

The usual Team of the Week has made way for Team of the Week Moments, and the developers have still got patches up their sleeve. The newest patch, Title Update #14 went live for PC players on March 31, so let’s take a look at what has been changed by the developers.

FIFA is still being updated even though there is no football being played.

The highlight change coming in Title Update #14 are the further nerfs to the Overload Ball Side tactic. As anyone who has played FUT Champions Weekend League will know, OBS is one of the most common and infuriating tactics that you will run into.

EA first made a tweak to the D-Pad tactic back in Title Update #12, increasing the impact that using the tactic would have on stamina. As that hasn’t seemed to do the trick, they’ve again increased the impact on stamina in Title Update #14.

FIFA stars will see their stamina affected by the new patch.

 

In addition to that, players who use the Team Press tactic will also notice that their players can now last a little longer as EA have decreased the impact on stamina that the tactic has. According to the developers, this should now be back to their pre-Title Update 12 levels. 

There have also been general changes to CONMEBOL competitions – with Guarani and Barcelona SC being added to the mix. There are also a handful of presentation changes.

As of writing, Title Update #14 is available for Origin PC players, with the download clocking in at around 900mb. It is not yet live on consoles, so FIFA fans on there will have to wait a little while longer.

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.

Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.

  • Erling Haaland (86)

  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.

These boosted player upgrades are now being announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike other years where we knew about them three hours prior.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.

There were a number of other standout performances across the weekend too. Neymar Jr. was at his electric best against Angers, while FIFA 21 cover star Erling Haaland kept up his goalscoring record in a 4–0 win over Freiburg on Saturday.

Here are our TOTW 2 predictions, so let’s see how many we got right this week!
