Please note that any time that elapses during maintenance counts towards this 24 hour time limit.

In such cases, you may encounter the following message when attempting to log in: "Access to the server is currently limited due to heavy traffic. Try again?"
Selecting "Retry" will make another attempt at connecting to the server.

・In case the maintenance ends before 06:00 (UTC), there is a chance that there will be no Auctions available in the Auction List for some time.

We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.

Additional Info About Iconic Moment Series Players

See below for some additional info regarding the Iconic Moment Series players.

  • ・ All Iconic Moment Series Players that you own can still be used after major version updates.
  • ・ The stats and rarity levels of Iconic Moment Series players are fixed, and are not subject to changes in updates or during maintenance.
  • ・ The Condition Rating of Iconic Moment Series players is fixed to "B", and is not subject to change during Live Updates.
  • ・ Converting a duplicate Iconic Moment Series player into a Trainer and using him to train an identical variation of the same player yields a tremendous effect. Additionally, Trainers converted from Iconic Moment Series players still produce an enhanced effect when used on different variations of the same player.
  • ・ You can only trade players from the Iconic Moment Series if you have 3 copies of the same variation.
  • ・ Photographs displayed on Iconic Moment Series player cards are subject to change.
  • ・ Iconic Moment Series players that you have signed may be rendered unusable due to league and licensing issues. If any such issues should occur during a major version update, affected Iconic Moment Series players that you own will be replaced with other players.
  • ・ The stat boost applied to Iconic Moment Series players by matching your Model Team to their team is only reflected in Squad Management (including the Player Details screen). All other areas of the game will display the pre-boost stat values.

*Multiple variations of the same Iconic Moment Series player may exist in the game. Each different variation of a player comes with a unique photo, allowing you to easily distinguish between them.

We have plans to release more Iconic Moment Series players moving forward, and we trust that you will be very excited to see what's in store.
Thank you for your continued support of eFootball PES 2020.

About Featured Players

*Featured Players obtained in eFootball PES 2021 are only usable in eFootball PES 2021.
*In-game player club data is frequently synchronised with real world football data through PES Live Updates. Despite this fact, there is a chance that PES's club data is not entirely up to date. We therefore encourage you to check the [Available Players] for each Agent before attempting to obtain a player.
*The Trade feature allows you to exchange 3 copies of the same variation of a Featured Player. Differing variations of the same Featured Player cannot be traded.
*Different variations of the same Featured Player may also have different Popularity levels.
*Featured Player rarity and stats/abilities will not be altered by any updates or during maintenance.
*The Condition Rating for Featured Players is subject to change with each Live Update.
*Featured Player images are subject to change.
*All Featured Players are subject to postponement and/or cancellation without prior warning. Be sure to check the list of Available Players for each Agent before use.
*You may be unable to use certain players after signing them due to changes to actual league circumstances or licensing issues.
