This has been a long-running subject with FIFA video games, and the difficulty continued with FIFA 19. Now, in a considerably shocking transfer, EA Sports activities has launched an replace it says is designed to straight sort out the issue.
Title replace six, which is out now on PC and coming quickly to PlayStation four and Xbox One, makes enhancements to the responsiveness of gameplay in conditions the place your opponent’s community connection might expertise packet loss or excessive latency. So, in case your opponent is correct laggy, it’s best to have a extra responsive expertise with this replace than with out.

“The end result needs to be a way more constant expertise in gameplay responsiveness on-line, relying on the networking set-up you have got.”
EA certified all this by saying a participant’s on-line expertise has so much to do with elements exterior of its management (wired connections are your buddy!), nevertheless it’s working to type out elements in its management.
