Though Fight Night Champion struggled to gain traction with consumers EA Sports has continued to provide strong post-release support. A second comprehensive patch for the game is set to release for the Xbox 360 and PS3 on June 28th. Continue on to check out all the changes that will be delivered with next week’s patch.

Fixed One-Punch Knockouts
•Pretty self-explanatory this one. One punch KOs are happening again.

Health and Knockdowns
•Boxers with low health can now be knocked down without automatically entering the “critical health” stun state.
•Cumulative punching can, in effect, cause knockdowns without being so predictable.

Locomotion Updates
•Boxers can now move forwards with their guard up as fast as opponents can move backwards with their guard down
•Movement speed near the ropes or corners is affected. Makes it more difficult to consistently run throughout the course of a fight.
•Weave input sensitivity has been improved.

Stamina Updates
•Long term stamina loss for moving backwards is significantly higher than stamina loss for moving forwards.
•Short term stamina loss for throwing several punches is more significant.
•The effect of low stamina on boxer power and toughness is more significant. When a boxer’s stamina bar is low, they are weaker and more susceptible to damage than before.
•Stamina loss for high output punchers is more significant overall.

Hit Reactions
•Tweaked hit reaction strength such that punches to the body do not offset opponent punches as drastically.
•Reduces the instance of what some users felt were, “forced misses”.

Judges Scoring
•Judging logic tweaked to favor clean, effective punching more than previously.
•In general, most judges will favor the boxer who lands fewer, more significant punches over the boxer who lands higher numbers of less significant punches.
•Big punches and stuns have a bigger chance of swinging a round in favor of a boxer.

Legacy Mode
•Fixed issue where game would sometimes hang when attempting to import created fighters into Legacy Mode.
•Alternate Weight Class DLC boxers can be imported into Legacy Mode. So can George Foreman.

•Fixed the Online Leaderboards Cheat

OWC Match-Up Logic
•Prioritizes match-ups been boxers with similar OVR ratings.
•Matchups between boxers with too large a difference in OVR will not be made (no more hunting for easy fights).
•OWC Boxer Ratings have been balanced so that new boxers aren’t at as big a disadvantage starting out.

Offline Gameplay
•Rolled back a subset of previous tunerset updates that were adversely affecting offline gameplay difficulty.
•Improved the effect of Offline Gameplay Sliders for Punch Accuracy and Punch Output (as much as possible).

        I read it just fine.

  • shaun

  • Del4ncor1692

    them two dudes crazy this game is hot im saying game of the year good
     graphics and realism its like round 3 but way better they just need to bring blood and swelling back on offline mode

  • FeartheCanuck

    i have played this game since it was called Knockout kings and this is the first time i can honestly say that they screwed things up so bad that the online player base will never recover, when they took out counter punching off the block because a few developers got their asses kicked that was pretty much the end of the game for most ppl. they had this in every one of their other games yet they take it out and make ppl dance around and jab spam to try and score the win. My tag is FeartheCanuck and i was the numb 1 qualifyer EVERY WEEK throughout the last games Champions of Gaming tourny and now i have been thinking of just trading this game back in while the value is still up

      Value still up? I tried to take it to Gamestop not even two weeks after release and they were gonna give me $13 for it. It’s a very good game, just it’s so frustrating playing people that cheese. It’s almost sad to see how bad this game has sold. Definitely think it’s better than what the sales figures show. Boxing is dead though, there isn’t too much innovation in the series other than the too-short, yet phenomenal story mode (already forgot what it was called) , and the general public hates EA, (which they’ve definitely brought upon themselves) so it really isn’t all that suprising.

      I’m glad I decided to keep it. It’s fun to pickup and play every once in awhile.

    I had high hopes for this game. I was pretty disappointed.

  • Flosesmaloney

    Worst part of this game is the advertised blood and cuts that were supposed to be a game feature. I can right hook someone a 1000 times and nothing happens. Don’t know whats up with that ruined the game for me. 

  • FighterforJC

    This patch is great for sim players but spell doom for spammers like Pastapadre.  He had the nerve to post his online fight.  Dude is a shameless spammer.

  • legacy mode

    im glad they fixed the dlc boxers on legacy mode now lil wayne wont look like another dlc boxer like kobe bryant or something stupid like that

  • Jasonlee_5

    this patch is going to kill off outside fighters. Why make them lose stamina for going back? just make going back slower. Damn this game cant seem to patch correctly. 

  • longleggedpissedoffpuertorican

    this game is terrible now. I’m an outside fighter and by round 4 I’m at 68% stamina because I’m moving around the ring jabbing? that makes no sense. no one in real life boxes toe to toe just swinging hooks and uppercuts at each other for the entire fight. boxing is about strategy and this new update f*cks it up.

    • Jonesbriland

      Yes You are Right!!! they RUINED  this game for me. I havent played in weeks and i come back to this??????!!! what in goods name. This game WAS amazing but now Im probably gonna trade it in. PLEASE EVERYONE COMPLAIN COMPLAIN COMPLAIN  email them complaining at least twice a day and in feedback pages complain

  • Hayze

    why no instant replays?? thats what they really need to fix too.. how long before they can get that done!?

    They ruined outside fighting!! my fighter loses all his stamina they focused on copmplaints about how people are always “running” when really its just ouutside fighting counter punches. That or it just pissed them off. But yeah this game is ruined for me. You meAN YOU GET MORE STAMINA FOR RUNNING IN AND BLINDLY SWINGING THAN CIRCLING AND PICKING YOUR SHOTS? Horrible.

  • Chicanobull32

    The stamina is Horrible now on the game. You jus needed the stamina to be fixed for those players who throw nothing but one punch ‘the jab’ and the players who throw nothing but power punches.

    • Chrls0207

      You have the smartest statement up here

  • Joeywynn02

    Ea sports have destroyed this game. This current update is by far the worse . Its not realistic and has reduced the game to an arcade style of rockem sockem robots. Ea sports has shown no respect for its customers by catering to exploiter, spammers and simply lil girls who cant fight in or out of real life. It is a shame that this has happened . The game was alright and now its ruined by catering to these brats or cheaters.

    i also took 2 weeks off to complete another game and i came back to this?? losing every f*cking time online for the past 14 fights. what the helllll is going on? what happened to the stamina? from starting the game, EA forced us to relearn the fight engine AND relearn controls changed from round 4. then i had to adapt to those cheap spamming players in the beginning, and even THAT was probably the most difficult part. NOW.. they out of nowhere went to super sensitive stamina? This is BS. so i change strategy and work more on my defense and im still gassing out all the time? no matter how clean and limited i try to be and defend my body i still gass out by round 6. i dont understand how some players seem to take no effect to even more body shots landed on them. it feels like the developers just completely flipped the script on everything the forced us to learn for the past 4 years
    did the online match-making search make us go against equal skill levels now? 
    cuz if so.. THEY SHOULD’VE SAID SOOO

  • Maxoirundol

    The game is garbage now ! I have traded all my ea sports games. 

  • guest

    the stamina is shit, the new patch makes the fighters get tired too fast, make the stamina bar a little higher

  • guest

    the fighters can’t even go 12 or 15 rounds in this game, they should make a new patch
