EA FC 24 players believe they have found proof of “DDA” within the game, which would confirm the theories of many gamers.

For those who do not know, “DDA” stands for Dynamic Difficulty Adjustment. The way it works is when one team loses, the difficulty will change to help the losing player. It is a feature that is part of the game, but it is only active in Offline modes.

However, it has long been a rumored feature within Online matches, and now has evidence finally been released proving tons of FC 24 players correct?

FC 24 Players Find “Proof” of DDA in the Game

The evidence that players believe points towards the proof of DDA in FC 24 stems from gamers in FUT Champions receiving notifications of a difficulty change.

While in a game, these users get messages in the top right stating “Difficulty changed to…” and think this is DDA in action.

One player believes this confirms the existence of DDA in Ultimate Team.

Another person sarcastically states that there is no surprise that it has been “confirmed.”

However, from our years of playing FIFA and now playing the new FC series, we do not believe there is any scripting, momentum, or, in this case, DDA within the game.

This instance is likely just a visual glitch making its way over from Offline modes. We suspect the difficulty is not changing in Online games.

Furthermore, the developers have previously refuted the idea that they would use this technology, releasing a statement publicly denying it.

We’ve publicly said before that we do not use any scripting or “Dynamic Difficulty Adjustment” (DDA) or anything similar that would automatically adjust the difficulty of gameplay in FIFA, Madden and NHL Ultimate Team matches.

This resulted from a lawsuit where the plaintiff challenged the developers on their alleged use of DDA. In the end, they dropped the case with EA providing proof that DDA was not in Ultimate Team.

Either way, we are sure those who strongly believe that scripting or DDA is in the game will maintain those beliefs, and this visual glitch will undoubtedly strengthen their view.

We’re pleased to share that the plaintiffs have now dismissed their case. We provided them with detailed technical information and access to speak with our engineers, all of which confirmed (again) that there is no DDA or scripting in Ultimate Team modes.
