Indeed there was. All versions of the game are equal to each other now, so the “patch notes” are the same on all devices.


What are the patch notes?

Could you please post them in the Update History section on Steam?

@JNT_BA @RossSymons anything coming out to end the season? :man_shrugging:t3:


Could of brought an update on the biggest day of the footy calendar but that wouldn’t make much sense.:man_shrugging:


Still no injuries in management mode is a joke haha only way to get injured players is to sim games haha


That’s not true. I haven’t simmed a single game and I have injuries on my list.


Only in your reserve players, never in the starting 22 or during actual game play


I understand Big Ant are busy with cricket 24 launch but hearing nothing about AFL 23 updates is worrying.


So I think it’s pretty safe to assume any further updates to this game will come next year when the 2024 season rolls around ?
Such a disappointing outcome if this is the final build of the game until next year.

No ProTeam which was promised at launch, no depth to management mode, gameplay still quite average as it doesn’t play like the modern game, no Hamish McLachlan, no training mode and still can’t play without Internet even in an offline game mode.
It’s astonishing that this is the state of the game so long after launch.

Hopefully AFL25 is somewhat decent


Hi guys, not sure if this is just me. But I’m finding that season mode is far smoother than management mode (both played on same difficulty) is this something anyone else has experienced.

I find management mode to be a real arm wrestle and far more random and frustrating than season mode that seams more smooth and realistic.

is it just me or is it really easy on the hardest difficulty, ive seen videos where it has been many close games, but i havent got a single one. Is there anything i can do to make it harder???

I might try season and see how it goes. When the game first came out I go so sick of crashes and all the other stuff, I tried the aflw and I had no crashes and smooth gameplay wayyy better than the men’s. So I don’t think what you’re saying is unrealistic, it just baffles me how a game in a seperate mode plays so much better. I’m sure there’s a techy person that could explain how and why this happens.
