The AcceleRATE system has also had a few tweaks to improve how quick players are off the mark. 

Here is the full lowdown on the complete Patch Notes 9 that recently arrived in FIFA 23. 

FIFA 23 Patch Notes 9: General, Audio, and Visual

Made the following changes: 

  • Added the UEFA Women’s Champions League (UWCL) to the Kick Off and Tournaments.
  • Added the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) to Kick Off, Online Seasons and Friendlies, as well as Tournaments.
  • Added four new Women’s clubs:
    • Real Madrid C.F., VFL Wolfsburg, Juventus, and Eintracht Frankfurt
  • Updated some kits, star heads, competition bios, tifos, credits, logos, armbands, badges, anthems, substitution boards, stadia, balls, ad boards, tattoos, facial accessories, trophies, and pitch flags.
  • Added ten new signature celebrations.

Made the following changes:

  • Players with the Explosive AcceleRATE archetype now accelerate slightly faster during the early stages of a requested sprint.
  • When intercepting the ball while jockeying, the player is now better able to take control of the ball instead of it bouncing away from the player.
  • Increased accuracy of Driven Ground Passes made to teammates ahead of the ball carrier, in situations where the passer is under no pressure from defenders. 
  • Improved contextual logic when determining if a Standing Tackle request should lead to a defending player performing a Standing Tackle or a Push/Pull.
    • This change will result in more Standing Tackles being performed than Pushes or Pulls, in some situations.
  • Slightly increased the likelihood of a knuckleball shot occurring when requesting a Power Shot.
  • Decreased the speed that the ball can travel at from a free kick taken with the outside of the foot.
  • Slightly decreased the range required for a defender to attempt a tackle without being requested to do so.
  • Increased consistency of flicking the ball if the ball was in the air. 

Addressed the following issues:

  • In some cases, a player could take longer than intended to start sprinting with the ball when a sprint was requested.
  • Goalkeepers could have sometimes anticipated shots too quickly.
    • This was most noticeable in 1 on 1 situations.
  • Improved referee logic when determining potential penalty kick fouls near the edge of the box.
  • In rare cases, the camera would not position itself as intended for penalty kicks.
  • When performing a tackle near the touchline, defenders could sometimes kick the ball out of play more often than intended.
