eFootball™ 2022 v1.1.0  Patch Notes

Greetings to all soccer lovers from around the world.
Without further ado, let's go through the v1.1.0 update in detail.

Ever since the April update went live, we have received a wide range of feedback and suggestions for eFootball™, for which we are very grateful. The development team has been taking the feedback you've given us directly, as well as the discussions on social media into account. On top of that, we have also been reckoning with the statistics of your plays, such as the number of goals scored, goal-scoring patterns, locations and types of fouls committed, Team Playstyles selected, and many more. We are not only fixing bugs in this update, but we are also adjusting the balance of the game while implementing enhancements to its playability.

Together with you, eFootball™ will constantly evolve into an even more enjoyable game. Thank you for being a part of this journey with us.
