For general conversation.
Hey i was wondering when is the next patch for AFL 23 coming out on playstation 5? I know steam had one recently which was quite big and included player editing etc.
Unfortunately, there is no set time for patches as they have to go through the approval process. All details for when an update will go out and what it will include will be pushed to Twitter, which I’m sure we will post here to give the latest updates on the process. Rest assured we are continuing to work on the game and update it!
Okay thanks because i would really love the new patch update asap
How does jostling in a marking contest work? Is it currently in the game and are there planned future improvements for it?
(Also, does this belong in this Megathread, or should we create a new topic?)
Is there a roadmap for upcoming future patches to AFL 23? What are you still working on in gameplay/management mode etc?
While in the animation when in a contested mark you will see the players move up against each other, when it comes to the current setup for marking contests there is no added jostling mechanic taken into account with how it currently works, I’ll pass along the idea to the team to see if it is possible in future iterations.
While the set shot gameplay is really enjoyable atm, i see it as similar to the arcade controls found on Cricket 22, where it is timing based and using a reticle to aim.
Was wondering if there were any plans to bring in Pro mode controls for set shots using the right joystick?
Looking forward to being part of this forum. Enjoyed the other one, will still engage in that, but agree it needs to be separated for the game (and our own) wellbeing. Love the game so far, have clocked nearly 100 hours or so, and can’t wait to see how far this game goes once we get those fixes.
Love your work BA and fingers crossed this forum can garner a good community!
Love the new page team! Here’s to a constructive and enjoyable experience!
It says in the guide that right stick is bump/jostle. Why would that be? Thanks.
Hi Team, are there any plans to include a ‘Side Select’ option in game for season and custom competition? Currently this is only available in play now mode
Hey Guys, just a great idea is to PLEASE bring back the slider adjustments like previous games - I feel it will solve a lot of issues & make us not that good enjoy the game a lot more - I appreciate your efforts with the constant update’s absolutely outstanding work
This is a big one for me
Excited for this new forum congrats BA!! Is there any plan to implement secondary player positions to assist with the auto interchange logic? I submitted a ticked on this a fair while back. Cheers!
While the stick does have a number of uses in the game. Primarily when it comes to marking contests it will initiate the spoil mechanic over anything else depending on the setup of the contest with player positioning taken into consideration.
So when the controls say ‘bump/jostle’, does that more refer to jostling when running next to each other in general gameplay, rather than jostling in a marking contest?
I think that’s the confusion.
Is handballing being worked on to the point that it’s going to be effective in tight contests ?
Eg. I want to be able to handball 3-4 times in congestion to get the ball out to a runner and open up the play
Yeah, this actually would be the best way to view it which is also in the lead-up while the players are getting into the specific marking contest mechanic itself as well.
for afl 23 on Xbox, will it be released digitally in june/early july still or when the discs are released?
