Sidhe Working on a Patch for Rugby Challenge

Sidhe's Managing Director Mario Wynands has confirmed a second patch is in the works for the recently released All Blacks Rugby Challenge on the game's official forums.

While it's not clear when the patch will become available, Mario has confirmed some details around what it will (and will not) attempt to address:

• It will not add set-plays

• It may address an issue some players have reported where passes intended for the playmaker go to a different player (like a forward)

• It may change the online mode to allow unranked matches with teams that have different stats (currently, stats are normalized for ranked matches)

• The offload-o-rama situation is being investigated

• There are no changes planned for the US team. The current lineup has players out of position, like a flanker on the wing - however this is how the US team supplied and approved the team

While Sidhe can't confirm when the patch will be made available, it is planned to be released in the next few "weeks", rather than "months". The publisher, HES, are only committed (at this stage) to this one patch. That doesn't rule out other patches, however no more are currently planned.

We'll keep a close eye on the situation and bring you more details as they come to hand in the coming days and weeks. In the meantime, if there's something about the game that's bugging you, be sure to let us know in the comments. Sidhe keep a close eye on user comments here on NZGamer.com, so by bringing your issues to their attention here, there's a greater chance that they'll look at addressing it for an upcoming patch.

The offload and playmaker pass fixes sound great! Hopefully we see more great patches coming though making this game the 9 it is!

Indeed, good news.
I reckon that the offloads being adjusted would be a good start.
It annoys me when i aggressively tackle a player, only to have him make a perfect offload that is more of a cutout pass through traffic.

Intercepts.. Where are they?

And charging down a kicker? Not possible.

And players making perfect clearance kicks while being smoked in a tackle? Also, Not possible.

The patches are very welcome :)

I've just had to delete my save files as something went jacked up... Gotta go through the strenuous task of editing all my unlicensed players again and re-earning all my Rugby Points...

PS. For anyone that cares, the long awaited patch for RLL is out... It adds the 2 All Stars teams for PS3...

While I can live without set plays, I'd like to be able to pick-and-go with the number 8 off the scrum or initiate a maul, two things which are bread and butter in union really.
