eFootball introduce more teams to 2.4 update

eFootball 2023

Before this new update, only 26 real-world teams (known as partner teams) were available.

Here are the patch notes in the new update as per the Konami website:

Response Enhancement on Second Touch Plays

We have also made adjustments to the players' second touches. This allows for more responsive dribbling, passing and shooting and an easier transition towards your next move in general.

Further Dribbling Manoeuvrability Enhancements

We have reviewed different animations as well as the ball touch speed of players. The next time you flick that L stick, you will realise that you can now perform a more responsive turn in the desired direction.

Enhanced Effect of Acrobatic Finishing

Taking the current shot-on-target rate and goalscoring rate into account, we have decided to increase the shot accuracy of the Player Skill "Acrobatic Finishing". In addition, the activation conditions have also been reviewed and adjusted to ensure that the Player Skill will be activated in appropriate scenarios.
