No actual gameplay fixes/tweaks is disappointing.

Just wait. People will swear the gameplay is improved since the update. Even though EA will swear they changed nothing, and even though nothing will actually have been changed. Happens every year.

The FIFA placebo.

Disappointing but not surprising! I'm just looking forward to playing for my team with my own face without the game freezing. COYP!

Can anyone confirm that the freezing issue has been fixed in year two?

Will it notify me that a new update is available when I first start up the PS3 or do I have to go find the update somewhere?
# 10 Altimus @ 10/19/12 03:21 PM
It will just notify you.

Lol. "Stability" fix? What does that vagueness even mean? This patch is a joke, multiple freezes and crashes still remain in the game. What exactly was the point of removing Legacy defending from Pro Clubs? Now you're forced to play with CPU players doing the "tactical" defending, which includes standing around as people blow by them, jogging alongside them as they move along the 18 for a shot, etc. I'm not a big fan of the "homing defenders" that Legacy brought to the table, but at least the CPU players would actually step to a player and attempt to play defense, rather than let them run unchecked all day. And by the way, 90% of the teams I've encountered on Pro Clubs used Legacy.....so maybe the problem isn't Legacy, it's the tactical defending. Fail.

Doesnt seem like it fixed any stability issues with online seasons whatsoever....quite disappointed
# 14 UK0wnag3 @ 10/23/12 05:44 AM
Seem to be having frame rate issues, didnt have them before I downloaded the update.
# 15 Lubey @ 10/25/12 12:03 AM
This update did not solve any of the problems it said it would for me. 75% of online matches disconnect immediately or kick off.
# 16 xx19kilosoldier @ 10/31/12 03:48 AM
Career mode still freezing.
# 17 Maxflier @ 11/01/12 10:56 AM
I don't understand this part of the patch notes:
-Legacy defending and passing assistance options removed in Pro Clubs

I get the part about legacy defending, but are you telling me that Pro Clubs is all manual now? Because I can still set my controls to assisted passing when playing clubs.
