It is really a good news for all FIFA fans that FIFA 18 has just been given a new update on PS4, Xbox One and PC, which solves an annoying glitch. Let's see the details:

The latest FIFA 18 patch makes it more difficult to score from kick-off. The defensive team is now more compact, the attackers will not push forward as aggressively and there will be less space between the offensive players and the defenders. Also, in some situations, the goalkeepers will no longer clean the ball unnecessarily.

This update will launch before the annual FIFA Rating Refresh. Although EA Sports just got the ball rolling with a new questionnaire, there is no exact word about when this year's winter upgrade will go live. FIFA 18 developer posted on Twitter, asking fans for feedback on who deserves a ratings upgrade in FIFA 18. The tweet reads as "Who do you think deserves a Ratings, Weak Foot or Skill Moves upgrade in FIFA 18?" and includes a link to a ratings refresh questionnaire, where fans can nominate a player and a new score.

Here are the full patch notes of the new update:
