"FIFA 17" just made the game a little bit more exciting now that the AI players will do what they're supposed to do-attack the goal with as much ferocity as they can! Players of "FIFA 17" commended the game for its wonderful features, especially the comprehensive simulation program that enables them to experience what it must be like for an aspiring footballer to rise up the ranks and be touted as one of the sport's latest heroes.

But despite its several features, "FIFA 17" like many sports-themed video games also has its drawbacks. One particular glitch that players often complain about is the AI players' penchant for hanging back and letting the human player do all the work.

According to Polygon, the AI players in "FIFA 17" tend to hang back and just pass the ball to each other instead of going forward and attacking the goal more aggressively.

The site said that most of the attacks are initiated by the user, which sometimes can be dull. Also, the AI players' tendency to just hang back results in the AI opponents' increased effectiveness in defending their side. But if "FIFA 17" is looking to make their game as realistic as possible then avid football fans will know that a timid attacking team is rarely seen in a real pitch.

Fortunately, EA Sports has corrected this glitch and they have released a patch to address this particular issue. The result is that the AI players are much more aggressive now whenever the user has the ball and they will start attacking the opponent's side more often than before.

Another issue that the patch has fixed has something to do with the shooting feature of "FIFA 17." According to Eurogamer, the patch has improved the response time of the shooting feature which means that the user will see that whenever he/she presses the button that shoots the ball, the response time will be quicker.
