    What? You can't be serious. The game hasn't been out for 2 months and you complains about lack of gameplay support? Really? What a damn spoiler generation we're living..
    Honome In fairness man, this is very atypical for Konami, at least inn terms of patching the gameplay AND giving us detailed notes.  I've long been a fan of their updates to face scans and the like, but usually the day 1 gameplay is just what you get for the year.
    That said, this sounds great if they are able to get these things right.  They've literally listed my four biggest problems with the game.

    I agree these were my biggest issues with the game as well, hopefully its done right.

    Well, yes. And i prefer that way instead of making one patch every week with minor gameplay changes without addressing the real problems. They said since first week that they were working on player switching and lack of fouls and were working on it but people nowadays can't wait anymore, it´s like everyone is like my 3yr old sons and want everything now, now, now!
    PS: Sorry for the rant. :brickwall

    ?I feel you man, and if he is referring to just this year then I'd probably tend to agree with you.  I guess maybe I took his comment as meaning that, like myself, he has been frustrated with Konami's efforts in past years in regards to gameplay improvements, which they practically never make.
    I'm shocked and thrilled to see these patch notes, rather than just the usual "made improvements to the general gameplay experience", or whatever placebo inducing line they've always used in the past.
    I'll temper my excitement until I play it. Switching has really been pissing me off recently and the lack of fouls is simply inexcusable. But how they fix the fouls will be just as important.
    If they manage to fix (and do it intelligently), then I'm more than happy to wait for it to get done.
    Edit: Also, this little add on the bottom of the patch announcement - "We will be releasing more details next week, including information of exciting new content coming to PES 2018."
    Wonder what new content could be?
    Konami has made gameplay improvements in the past but their lack of transparency with patch notes is so archaic.
    This is rare from them .

    COM fouls
    Increased aggression for COM defence and foul call balance

    this is good but does not include online ? what about more fouls online? there is hardly ever any free kicks online because of this. Hopefully there will be a few more fouls called online as well and sometimes more strict cards at times... I hope this fix is just not for offline com fouls only. I don't care as much about that to be honest because I don't usually play offline. I know it needs fixing but they should be fixing fouls in general overall. not just making the com foul
    for future versions of the game.. I hope they have a referee option like they do for game speed. going from strict to not so strict. gives us 3 levels to choose from. Right now I would say it's on the lowest of the 3 levels I want as well.

    I agree. I got use to the player switching though but still needs to be fixed. I try to use the right analog stick like in fifa to switch in this game.

    Don't worry online game system will be influenced in the same way as the offline. The code of the executable files is the same on all the platforms and trust me there isn't difference atm between offline/online gameplay.
    The only difference is about the people...
    They aren't able to use KONAMI script system
