Title Update 1: situation where the CPU AI would frequently leave star players on the bench.

Above supposed fix Isn't fixed from what I've experienced playing three matches of player career, all of the best players aren't even making the first team let alone the squad at Sheffield Wednesday including two wingers they bought for a total of £7m. Anyone else experiencing the same? Will this fix only take effect if starting a new CM?

    Yeah I guess, haven't been playing my Player CM long as I'd restarted last night, I'll hold off until I get confirmation more people are seeing the same issue :)

    Did a test, started a new player career as Zlatan, simmed to the date of each match to see the starting lineup chosen by the AI, note Pogba was fit for every game but only selected for the bench (based on his appearances of 1 charity shield and 2 EPL from those 6 fixtures).

    Ok did some more testing, I was manager of Leicester and simmed matches against various EPL teams (plus Real Madrid), this included playing Man Utd 3 times and every time Pogba was on the bench!

    So the one thing they "fixed" isn't even fixed? There's tons of bugs in this year's career mode, especially the budget glitch where you don't get any of your prize money. They literally don't care about the people that play this game.

    Ok so I did yet more testing, this time I first edited the formations of Man Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal to change the CDM roles to CM so the AI has no excuse to pick lesser CDMs when high quality CMs are available, I started a CM with a number of different team and tested by simming to the Liverpool/ManUtd/ManCity/Arsenal matches and the results are, EA hate Pogba (and all other decent CMs).

    (apologies if any images are out of sequence but I think they clearly speak for themselves in terms of the lineups the AI is choosing).
  • The update isn't out on XB1 yet. That's why it isn't working.

    The update is out on PC, I'm playing on PC, the game has updated and the fix doesn't work...
  • Fair enough, my bad. I'll check when it's out on consoles.

    Bumping for feedback from PS4/Xbone users, you seeing the same as me on PC?
  • I started my first player career on PS4 yesterday, post update. Had to edit Debuchy's stats to make him worse than Bellerin so that Bellerin would be 1st choice. Edited the formation so it was cms rather than cdms. 1st choice CMs are coquelin and xhaka over xhaka & Ramsey/Cazorla and Gabriel starts ahead of Mustafi. I just wanna play with the new signings and arsenals actual best CMs playing. I seriously haven't played a good career mode since PES 4. Not gonna bother this year...

    I never started a new season once the patch came out and the AI still leaving star players on the bench. Do I have to start a new career mode for it to have affect or did they not actually fix this issue. Thanks.

    They did not actually fix it, I mentioned I started a new CM specifically to test.
  • Am I the only one still waiting for a fix to this? Just look at this Spurs team I'm playing against with Leicester ffs!22656241_1509978979079983_80453492_n.jpg?oh=a33be454f8ce4e0c3e9b4326b234086b&oe=59EBAE7E
