We must admit it! Video games have come a long way that the graphics resemble real life now. The difference becomes evident when you pit a today’s title against one released a decade ago. One of the reason being the improvement in the hardware department.

It’s the same for mobile games as well. We are miles ahead of the black and white Snake Xenzia now. And, we have many categories (action, board, casual, puzzle, racing, sports, strategy, etc.) to choose from.

If you ask me for my favourite game, I can’t resist voting for PES 2020. For the last one year, it’s been my go-to stress buster and time killer. Having played almost all the popular football games on mobile, I can vouch for its superior graphics and gameplay.

In case you are a PES 2020 (Android/iOS) player, you may be having issues with matchmaking on a few modes today. That’s because Konami is conducting an unscheduled maintenance that doesn’t hinder opening the game.

As you know, they carry a weekly maintenance on every Thursday between 02:00- 08:00 (UTC). During these hours, you can’t get past the Konami logo. After the proposed time, the game comes out with less bugs than earlier.

On the contrary to the schedule, a maintenance has just gone live now. You surely got the notice on opening the game. Chances are you might have closed it without realising what it’s all about. You can read it below.

Maintenance notice (Click/tap to zoom)

To recall, eFootball PES 2020 for Mobile went live last month after a massive maintenance period. Konami took four days to finish it and seventeen days to end pre-open period. We hope they will refine the gameplay by the time the new unscheduled mending completes.

Update 1 (November 19)

The maintenance has come to an end. And, you’ll have no issues with matchmaking from now on.
