Improved Play Control for Better Chance Creations
Attacking: Players now have better ball control and dribbling response, allowing for finer touches and more control during mid-air ball situations. Shooting close to the goal with a weak Power Gauge input now prioritizes quick kicks for better scoring opportunities.
Defending: Defensive improvements include more reliable ball blocking and faster clearances in specific situations.
Goalkeeping: Goalkeepers have gained new punching motions, enhancing their performance in air battles within the box.
Ball Control and Goal Awareness: Players now receive passes with a stronger awareness of the goal’s direction, leading to smoother goal-scoring actions.
New VS AI Matches with Lifelike Mentality
The AI has been redesigned to make more appropriate decisions and actions during VS AI Matches. This includes using feints, dribbling with greater intensity, and executing lofted passes to open up the pitch. Difficulty balance has also been adjusted for each Match Level.
Changes to Sharp Touch (excluding iOS and Android)
A notable change is the Sharp Touch command, which now requires pressing the Dash button twice by default. If you prefer the original method, you can switch back to the settings.
Form of Players
Players with “Standard” or “Inconsistent” Forms will now experience “Poor” or below Conditions less frequently, making them more viable options for substitutes. “Unwavering” Form remains unaffected.
In eFootball, boosters are in-game items that can be used to increase a player’s stats beyond the normal limit of 99. This means that you can use boosters to make your players stronger, faster, or more accurate.
This in-game element lets you express your unique playstyle. Some examples of Booster Types and the stats they enhance are shown below:
|Booster Type||Enhanced Player Stats|
|Free-kick Taking||Finishing, Set Piece Taking, Curl, Kicking Power|
|Technique||Ball Control, Dribbling, Tight Possession, Low Pass|
|Agility||Speed, Acceleration, Balance, Stamina|
