First FIFA 13 title update details revealed

EA revealed details of a upcoming title update and server downtime for FIFA 13.

Below is an important update on the large amount of activity happening this week to improve your FIFA 13 experience and address some of the challenges some fans have been facing with the game.

The team at EA Sports says via EA.com that it's been "working extremely hard to prioritize and address the items that have been brought to our attention. While we can't respond to every post and tweet, we have connected with and responded to thousands of you, and its invaluable feedback that we have received. We appreciate the help and support."

According to the team "feedback to date" has already helped it optimize connectivity for users, as well as tweak applications and game modes.

In this respect, the game will be offline for Maintenance on October 10 and October 11 to provide the following updates to the servers and game:

Maintenance - October 10th

During this maintenance window we have successfully addressed:

- Stuck and missing items in the FIFA Ultimate Team watch list and trade pile.
- Duplicate match results in Seasons and Online Friendlies.
- Users being relegated from Division 1 in Seasons with matches remaining.

- Users will no longer be able to lower difficulty settings in a FUT Seasons match.

- Legacy defending and passing assistance options removed in Pro Clubs.
- Freeze in Pro Clubs Results screen.
- Matchmaking settings in Pro Clubs (with "ANY" and "Match Keeper") will provide the desired results.
- Changes made in National Squad not properly reflected in Manager Mode screen.

Good to see an update arriving. I wish the gameplay was slowed down, though.

Whenever i play a pro clubs game, when it finishes it just comes up saying all the positions are undefined, i then have to load up ultimate team then load up pro clubs again to be able to play. highly frustrating. This and the refs on this game are the only problems i've had with this game so far.

they said they wouldn't add diving to the game as you would feel annoyed at losing a game because of a dive. well im feeling pretty annoyed now when im giving away penalties and red cards for fair tackles or no tackles at all. im pretty sure people will have spotted this bug, how could they have missed it

Mate i know how u feel, the refs were bad on the last fifa but they are much worse on this game. i spose having terrible refs makes the game more realistic though.... :P

Games running fine for me. But the 3 main problems that I'm glad are being fixed is just Ultimate Teams connectivity overall, the 'ANY' and 'GK' switches finally working and Napoli being licenced. I hated the badge they were having to use so happy they'll be much more recognisable now.
