FIFA 21: Gameplay Responsiveness Update; How Does It Improve The Experience?

FIFA Football games have always been about completion. At first, players could only play on the same device using one of the numerous game modes EA offered. The development of online gaming has changed that paradigm by allowing players to play against faraway friends or even against strangers in friendly or competitive games. FIFA 21 has confirmed that tendency with new multiplayer modes. EA has made certain decisions about the game, to give the players a better online experience. Let us see what those changes are.

In terms of infrastructure, EA has opened a new FIFA Game Data Center or FGDC in Miami, Florida. A game data centre is“a physical location with hardware and software systems designed to operate FIFA online gameplay.” The FGDC allow for a more stable connection when playing online games. The goal of Miami’s FGDC is to improve online gaming for players located in the Southeastern United States, Northern South America and Central America. That is great news for the concerned players who should experience smoother online games.

EA teams have discovered while attempting to install an FGDC in South America that most of the internet traffic from those regions often transited via Miami. According to the EA, installing an FGDC in Northern South America or Central America will not change the amount of traffic passing through Miami, so they elected to cancel their South American FGDC installation plans for the time being. Miami’s FGDC should also benefit the participants to the FIFA Global Series as well as the other competitions that EA will organize in the next months.

EA has also worked on online gameplay responsiveness. The goal is to provide the players with the tools that will allow them to set up their connection in the best way possible. EA also wants to educate the players about the effects the settings they chose will have on the quality of their connection.FIFA 21 players now have access to Connection Monitoring tools that will give them a good overview of their connection quality during online matches.

These tools are available in the game settings. They will give you a visual representation of your internet quality throughout a game. The main objective of EA is to provide FIFA 21 players with the best experience possible when they play online. FUTeamGo store offers you FUT 21 coins at the best prices to help you build the ultimate team.
