FIFA 22 has been quite dangerous for some content creators... we already reported that some top traders had problems with phishing attacks and some of them lost access to their accounts temporarily. EA, though, has not been of much help so far. This should change in the near future.

Furthermore, the gameplay of FIFA 22 is still being improved. This time, the focus is on the goalkeepers, faster player switching, the career mode and *drum roll* pitch lines. Let's dive into the details!

Pitch Notes Address Recent FUT Account Hacking

This had become an issue in recent weeks: According to the pitch notes on the official EA website, “only” about 50 accounts have been affected by the phishing attacks, but that is still a no-go. Why? Because of human error, the two-factor authentication could be circumvented again and again.

This is where publisher EA comes in with team training. All EA advisors and individuals who assist with the service of EA Accounts will receive further training on the topic of account security and be informed about the most common phishing techniques. In addition, the software is also being updated so that suspicious behavior is recognized more quickly and affected accounts are flagged accordingly.

Title Update 4 in FIFA 22

Goalkeeper Improvements

Do you remember the beginning of FIFA 22 when the goalkeepers were absolutely OP and literally saved every shot? Well, lately that wasn't really the case anymore... especially shots from very short range slipped through again and again. So with the new Title Update, Donnarumma, Mendy and others will be reacting better to these situations. Finally.

Switching Players gets faster

When defending a cross with the Auto Switching setting set to Automatic, On Air Balls and Loose Balls, or Only Air Balls, an automatic player switch will occur slightly faster than before. That may not sound like such a big deal, but it can make the difference between rank I and II, especially in the Weekend League.

Career Mode – Fixes for Youth Players

Even if you sometimes get the impression... no, Ultimate Team is not the only mode in FIFA 22. Fans of career mode have always been disadvantaged and have only been getting more and more innovations for a few years now. Not everything runs smoothly here as well, especially young talents are still a thorn in EA's side. With the new update, some bugs like unrealistically proportioned arms, missing names or numbers on the jerseys and missing progress will be fixed.

Pitch Lines always visible

What is more annoying in FIFA 22 than kits that hardly differ from your opponent? Well, pitch lines that you can't even see because you're playing FUT and your opponent has chosen green as the color. Thank God, this is going to be a thing of the past, because:

During away matches, players will see their own equipped pitch line colors instead of their opponent’s.

These are the most important changes of the fourth Title Update in FIFA 22. You can scroll through the complete patch notes on the FIFA forum. We don't know yet when the update will be released... but it sure is going to be “soon”. We just hope that the game will be relatively fun to play during the TOTY hype.
