THQ heeft een enorme knock out geslagen met de topgame UFC 2009: Undisputed. Toch zijn ze ervan bewust dat de game nog enige schoonheidsfoutjes heeft en daarom luisteren ze ook goed naar de gamers die fouten en/of verbeteringen hebben aangegeven op hun fora. Alhoewel ze niet alles tegelijk kunnen verbeteren, hebben ze vandaag een eerste patch aangekondigd voor de fightgame.

Het is nog niet bekend wanneer de patch uitkomt, maar wel heel snel. Hieronder kan je allemaal lezen wat ze verbeteren met de patch voor UFC 2009: Undisputed en houd er maar rekening mee dat ze steeds meer en meer naar de gamers gaan luisteren. UFC Producer Neven Dravinski heeft de patch aangekondigd voor alle online problemen en verbeteringen van de game.

Patch Update

What’s up guys, Neven here with an update on the patch for UFC 2009: Undisputed.

I want to thank all of you for the support in making UFC 2009: Undisputed such an amazing success. That being said I want to you to know we’ve been working hard on fixing some of the issues found in the online experience. Hit the jump for the list of fixes.

1. We recognize premature match quitting as the biggest online issue and have taken steps to fix it. The Patch will have integrated code that detects who pulls the cable and will assign a Loss as well as a Did Not Finish to that player. The DNF is only counted for the player who executes the disconnection. The DNF rate will be displayed on the fighter selection screen of the Online Ranked Match. When disconnected the Winning Streak is also reset to 0.

2. We’ve adjusted Ranked Matches to match up players with better connections, which will improve lag issues we’ve seen to date.

3. We’ve adjusted the difficulty of performing submissions against AI opponents to improve the balance of subs vs. striking when playing against the AI.

4. We’ve adjusted the Flash KO rate so that they are less frequent.

5. We’ve increased maximum number of points awarded in online play from 99,999 to 999,999 and we’ve increased the Max Level from 100 to 200.

6. We’ve lowered the Winning Streak Bonus Max from 5 to 3.

7. We’ve removed the decimal places on the Leaderboard Winning Percentage so we only show whole percentages.

8. We’ve addressed the CAF cheat so the skill levels in CAF cannot be cheated and increased. Also any CAF with unfair point values will no longer be able to be used Online.

9. For PS3 users we’ve also fixed a bug that causes a freeze during auto-save; whichever controller was used to Press Start on the Title Screen will be identified as the main controller.

Rest assured our entire team plays A LOT of online matches and we read the boards every day, so we are well aware of the issues. We want to make sure we patch this correctly so it is taking a bit of time, but I can confidently say we’ll be releasing this patch soon.

Stay tuned and thanks again for your support.
