Constant Pressure Nerfed in Title Update 6

The overpowered Constant Pressure defensive tactic has been nerfed in the latest FIFA 23 patch.

With this new update, you will notice the following:

  • AI teammates will actively look to provide more short passing options when playing against Constant Pressure.
  • CPU-controlled defenders who apply constant pressure but do not win the ball back will take longer to track back. This does not affect human-controlled players.
  • Stamina Decay decreased by 11.7% for Constant Pressure, Press After Possession Loss, and Press After Heavy Touch tactics.
  • In some situations, ball carriers are more likely to retain possession of the ball when pressured by a defender from behind.

This is one of the biggest changes in Title Update 6 as it reduces the effect that Constant Pressure will have.

Previously Constant Pressure did not showcase the desired negative side effects as intended. Allowing players to constantly pressure players throughout the whole match.
