FIFA 21 has received on December 2 a new patch: 1.09. The EA Sports game changes several elements both in terms of errors and also at the playable level. The list is quite extensive and is designed to try to improve gameplay that many users have already criticized after the release of the game and also the changes in later patches. We are going to review them below.


Playable changes


  • Reduced the distance AI-controlled players can go to block a ball (the famous autoblock).
  • Improved interception logic when the defender is on his way to the ball.
  • Reduced the transition speed of the player on a bicycle after completing it.
  • Increase in the distance the ball can travel after a goalkeeper rejection.


Error correction


  • Defenders sometimes stretched their legs higher than expected when trying to block a ball.
  • Blocking the opponent with the shoulder caused an unexpected movement.
