Dragon Ball FighterZ to receive patch on March 16th, here are the patch notes

Fixes ring matches, addresses gameplay exploits, and adds new features

Bandai Namco Europe has announced an upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ patch that will be going live on March 16th. While the last patch that launched on February 27, 2018 implemented some new features, applied some quality of life changes, and fixed a few bugs, there were still a number of issues present that made the online experience unplayable for many.

For example, Ring Matches are often very buggy. When trying to play a friend online, you'll get an error message saying that there are no rooms available even when the lobby is empty.

According to the linked image, Ring Matches will be fixed as of this update. There will also be gameplay fixes implemented.

Bandai Namco specifically mentioned in their tweet that these changes will be directed towards gameplay exploits. It's also worth noting that the rematch system for casual and ranked matches will now feature three matches.

Finally, the image also tells us that there will be additional new features. During the last update, we got access to the Party Match.
