‘It will take a few weeks to fix, unfortunately.’
After a lot of delays, the transfer update for PES 2016, which would reflect all of the transfers that happened at the end of summer (which is when a lot of the high profile moves tend to happen, as most football fans will know) was launched at the end of October. Unfortunately, it was also incomplete. For PES fans, this meant that they had been made to wait longer than they had been promised for an update that still didn’t do what they had been promised it would.
“Currently the roster update for offline play which impacts Master League, competitions and edit mode is not complete, missing the final few days of transfers,” a Konami rep told PESFan. “The online modes, such as ranked matches, myClub and exhibition mode using Live Updates are up to date, as they were from October 2nd – and they remain unaffected.
“We’ve received many questions regarding why offline and online are unique, and right now I wanted to explain that the systems being used for online updates are separated from offline due to the process we need to go through, with patch data including lists that needs to be checked internally and externally and may take weeks before the distribution.”
He went on to explain that Konami is moving ahead with fixing this problem on high priority- but owing to its nature, it would take a few weeks before it was working as intended.
“The roster issue is a priority for us to correct ASAP, but will take some weeks unfortunately. We had planned a second Data Pack for end of November which was set to include a new stadium for PS4 and Xbox One, the Maracana. However, we will not release this Data Pack without including a fix for the offline roster issue,” he said.
Overall, this has been a mess. It’s a shame, because PES 2016 is amazing in its actual moment to moment gameplay- if only Konami didn’t keep bungling everything else.
