Work is being completed on a comprehensive second patch for Fight Night Champion with the expectation that it will be released in mid-June. The patch will return general stamina levels to values in line with what shipped with the game originally – citing complaints that stamina was affecting the fights too drastically – and will bring back one punch knockouts. Continue on for a look at some of the changes to be delivered in the upcoming patch. 

•One Punch KOs are working again.
•OWC has been balanced so that new CABs aren’t at such a disadvantage when they start out.
•OWC has new match-up logic to favor match-ups between boxers with similar OVR ratings.
•Numerous factors tweaked to reduce the effectiveness of jab-spamming esp. to the body.
•Stamina loss is greater when moving backwards (most noticable over multiple rounds).
•Having your back to the ropes/in the corner has a bigger impact on movement speed.
•Max Stamina Loss/Recovery overall has been adjusted.
•Some previous patch/tuner-set changes have been rolled back for Offline gameplay.
•Weave sensitivity has been much improved.
•A variety of other bugs have been fixed.

      I know right. I had high hopes for this game, too. I guess that is what I get for putting faith in EA.

       Yeah man EA ain’t the sharpest knife in the drawer. 

  • Rez

     the fight night devs have no idea what they want. oh well traded the game in long ago. just dont expect another fight night game anytime soon after this one didnt sell enough

    Huge fan of the game. Can’t wait for this patch. One punch KO’s in this game added a certain element of suspense and fun. 

    One of my all time favorite video game moments was taking a 10 round beating. Losing badly over the duration of 10 rounds, only to pull out a 1 punch KO (I was Pacman) with about 40 seconds left. Sugar Ray never saw it comin. 

    Having said that, there were huge problems with the one punch KO system the way it shipped, so my hope is that they’ve cleaned up the logic for it a bit.

    • EA Lied to Me

       Yea I don’t mind One Punch KO’s being in, but if theyr’e gonna put it in at least do it right.  The way they had it before was so cheesy because it was so random & it didn’t have any logic whatsoever.  You could be dominating a fight & your opponent could be totally drained only to land a random KO punch to end the fight.  WTF?  You rarely ever see that in real boxing.  That’s my biggest problem with EA Sports as a whole.  They always have great ideas for features but they poorly execute them.  I think its laziness on their part.  Most of their titles are exclusive so they know they can half ass & string people along with patch after patch.  SMH!

    FUNNY BECAUSE I WAS GOING BACK AND FORTH OVER TRADING THIS GAME IN…I DIDNT FOWNLOAD THE PATCH SO I WOULDNT KNOW, BUT IT SEEMS TO ME THAT IF AFTER DOWNLOADING BOTH PATCHES, THAT IT ISN’T CLOSE TO THE SHIPPED VERSION, ITS GETTING TRADED. I AGREE SDOT, ITS CRAZY TO SHIP A GAME ONE WAY, ESPECIALLY AFTER ONE PUNCH KNOCKOUTS, AND THEN TAKING THEM OUT. WTF EA?

  • EA Lied to Me

    Their problem is that they keep trying to please everyone when they can’t.  Half the people want a cheesy arcade style game & the other half want a true simulation.  They should’ve just did what 2K11 did, just give us options on how we want to play!  2K11 has arcade mode, simulation mode, default mode, etc…  It’s not rocket science EA!   It baffles my mind how after all these years these developers haven’t learned their lesson.  By the time this stupid patch comes out I will have already lost my interest in this game!  It’s sad because I really love boxing but NCAA 12 will be out soon.  DON’T FORCE US TO PLAY ONE WAY!  GIVE US OPTIONS!  That way everybody can be satisfied.  SMH!

    Is this game worth buying? I heard it wasn’t as good as the last one. 

    • http://twitter.com/Mason_drews Mason Drews

       No absolutely not. The game has changed so much since release (wasn’t good then either and only seems to get worse) so no absolutely not. . . save your money for quality titles like Duke Nukem Forever or semi-quality titles like NCAA Football 12 and Madden NFL 12

    They took the cuts and damage out too. They need to bring that back since blood was heavily promoted in the game before it came out. Funny I don’t see that on the patch list.

  • Fuckyoutwice

    EA is making boxing look bad 

    • Yeahihearya

       They need to add more current fighters, and game modes, such as a tournament and belts in fight now like legends of wres

      • Johnjohn213

        totally agree, and i think they should touch up on kelly pavlik, manfredo jr, and chad dawsons tattoos.  update current fighters records too!

        • Domdelouise

          ADD Mandalay Bay arena, Bell Centre, Staples Center, Cesars Palace (outside), and club nokia

  • JayReed

    So now I lose stamina when I’m moving back? Really? Now there’s no way to get away from body punch spammers. I lose stamina moving back or standing there taking the body punches….. wow

  • Ball2415

    What about holding then OWC belt for too long, ducking fights, its become a big problem you should have to defend your title from time to time.

    Liked FN4. Liked FNChampions. But i have too much lags when playing online. after all i can say that fn4 was better for me online. i don´t like the new total punsh control. the “old” new punch control were good. why change it??

  • Coolinredd

    This is bullshit ea now u have everyone playing like some arcade style game just big muscular guys running at u with hooks and when u dodge u lose stamina so what are the people who like to box supposed to do just get beat up this game has to many holes and cheesy things going on come on ea I’m a good fighter/boxer why should I lose to these guys who can’t even box they just throw punch until they get u dazed Never buying boxing again ..fight night 3 was the best

  • Jusdivine911
