  • Fight Night Champion Gets Another Tuner
    Posted April 28th, 2011 at 9:10 am 3 Comments
    The ability to deliver "tuner sets", gameplay related tweaks that don't have to go through the typical patch approval process, has allowed for EA Sports developers to react to community feedback in a more timely and consistent manner. In the case of Fight Night Champion however the tuners have been more calculated in their release, with the first coming during the early demo, a second that coinciding with a comprehensive patch, and now a third that has just arrived. Jab spamming had been ...

    The recent patch and tuner update for Fight Night Champion was generally well received though some issues still remained. Another tuner set is expected to arrive next week and hopes to address at least one of them. Jab spamming, particularly exploited online, is what is being targeted in the next update. EA Sports has also noted that another patch is in the works for the game and that it will include fixes for some of the crashes and freezes being experienced both online and offline. Cons...

  • Fight Night Champion Patch Details
    Posted March 17th, 2011 at 8:30 am 11 Comments
    EA Sports has released some details on the patch that is being worked on for Fight Night Champion. While the timing for when the patch will arrive has still not been nailed down it will coincide with the first pack of downloadable content and possibly even a tuner set. It has been somewhat surprising that after a quick turnaround with a tuning update during the demo period that one hasn't already been executed due to community feedback to bridge that time until the patch. It appears that ...
  • Fight Night Champion Patch A Ways Off
    Posted March 9th, 2011 at 6:15 pm 9 Comments
    Those eagerly awaiting a patch for Fight Night Champion have a significant wait ahead. Today it was posted in the official FNC forums that a patch can be expected to release "sometime in the next few months". I tend to think that was just worded poorly or the statement was made in an attempt to lower expectations and a patch would more likely be coming in the 4-6 week range. Thankfully the series added the ability to deliver "Tuning Updates" which can be pushed out at any time without bei...
