PES 2021 Dynamic Difficulty Update – dynamic game difficulty balancing from “Football Life 2024” for eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2021.
How dynamic difficulty works:
Before each match (regardless of game mode), the game sets two values (one for each team, I believe) that control how boosted each team is. These values range from 0 to 5 and depend on many factors. I noticed that the answers you give in the pre-season interview affect how much the AI is boosted. Additionally, whether you are playing at home or away, there are different power-ups. Also, if you are on a three-game winning streak. Also if it’s a Cup match. Or in games that prepare you for the derby (Chapter 1: Derby, chapter 2…), and in the derby itself.
It’s very common to see values like 0/5 or 2/5, 0/2, and VERY rarely you get 2/2 or 3/2 (which is actually in your team’s favor).
