Generic boots bug, where to start...

I remember this bug from fifa 13, I was abroad and didn't play fifa online for about 6 months...after I came home and did squad updates THE WHOLE team had generic boots.

Ok, it was 2013, bug was new, I can kinda understand that....kinda.

But seriously now, 4 years later, the same bug still exist, FOUR YEARS the same bug exists, I'll write one more time because is hard to believe.

FOR FOUR CONSECUTIVE YEARS THE GAME HAS THE SAME BUG

Are you in for a record? the worst company ever award or something?


This is so annoying I can't describe it with words...top players in the world have generic boots...Is like we play fifa 95 not 17

Fix it please



Disappointed customer

    if boots aren't important than jerseys aren't important either?

    jerseys, faces, boots, balls, grass, nets...nothing is important?

    Players names? what's the difference if his name is Marco Reus or Murko Peus...you don't look at his names just how he plays.


    I mean I know gameplay is the most important, but all these let's call them small things bring realism to the game.


    Is like if you play rally and your car gets dirty after driving in a mud...sure that isn't important couse driving physic is, but this adds realism to the game.

    In a year 2017 players like messi, ronaldo, diego costa, fabregas etc can't have generic black-green boots, it's just looks awful

    Get a grip.

    Boots are like 2% of the digitised player. Unless you use a close up camera, or you watch the animation sequences your not gonna really notice a great deal of detail. Jerseys/kits of course they matter more cos you clearly need to see your players.

    Your gripe is about as important as whether managers are on the touchline. Zero importance.

    Don't see why the op is getting such a hard deal. I agree that it would look pretty crap if every player had the same generic boots on. My Nesta for example, is wearing specific white boots like he did in real life. It's a small thing, but it all adds to the game. And 4 years is almost hard to believe!

    This. Plus the difference is, majority does not even know what boots are players using irl. Different thing than kits.

    Weird plus you are not really being truthful to say you haven't looked once to the boots :#

    I'd be the same, not saying I don't see the boots as part of what is on the screen but I have never in my life taken notice of what colour the player is wearing.

    As discussed, the majority of people don't give a toss about it.

    Can't understand the hate for a person venting on an important piece of the game - for him. It might not be the most important part, but the amount of time to fix it - not good on the developer part.

    At times - in game - when players look similar, a distinguishing item - LIKE THE COLOUR OF BOOTS - comes in handy. I'm not saying it's for all, but there is use in there for some.

    I've also noticed when playing at La Bombanara there's a single blade of grass right in the corner of the pitch near the corner flag that is longer than the rest!!!
    Please sort this out ASAP as it's leaving the game unplayable

    Isnt the number on the back good for that? Even though you cant see it from all sides.
