FIFA 23 announced an upcoming title update 7 that addresses transfer market glitches, corner kick player positioning, and improves referee logic.

Team of the Year usually provides one of the most memorable experiences of the year for FIFA fans, but bugs have marred FIFA 23’s promo. A glitch awarded players the incorrect version of TOTY Courtois, and bugged packs gave users World Cup players.

Both glitches came just days after four promo cards accidentally received nerfs, sending the transfer market into a frenzy.

EA apologized for the recent slew of mishaps and released a long list of changes coming to the game soon in FIFA 23’s title update 7.

Attackers now have a better chance of winning the ball on corner kicks.

FIFA 23 corner kick positioning adjusted

FIFA 23 title update 6 nerfed the velocity and accuracy of powered corner kicks. Community members complained it was too easy to score directly from the corner spot.

Ever since EA made it harder to score from corner kicks, players have struggled to create as many chances on offense. In the upcoming update, the developers announced that taller players are likelier to place themselves in attack-oriented positions. This should balance the scales and make it easier to score again.

FIFA 23 improves offsides calls and ref logic

EA also confirmed title update 7 improves referee decision-making for offside calls. Players sometimes would make a run on the touch line out of bounds and incorrectly get called for being in an offside position.
