Disappointing. Thats all i can say about career mode this year. Here are a few things I want to see next year.
1) Sponsors. Pretty self explanatory. It would be nice to sign your own sponsorship deals and they would spice up the kits which dont change at the moment.
2) Kit Editor. Based on your sponsor, u should be able to make changes to ur kit. Nothing drastic, just the ability to maybe add a stripe or dots or something and the AI should change as well.
3) Stadium Upgrades. Also self explanatory.
4) Generally more things to spend money on. Currently u can only spend money on players and scouts which is pretty bad when ur not in the transfer window. I wanna be able to hire stuff ( medics, doctors, coaches, trainers etc.) and i wanna be able to upgrade facilities ( trainig facilities and medical facilities etc.), just more things to buy and think about.
5) The AI 1st time shooting is too overpowered. This needs to be fixed. Literally every 1st time shot, no matter who the player is is finding the top corner.
6) Blocking is too overpowered. U cant take long shots anymore coz theres always a 🎃🎃🎃🎃 player that will fly outta nowhere and block 2, maybe 3 in a row.
7) AI transfer r still to unrealistic
8) Small teams play like barca and big teams play like derby
9) Stats should last more than one season. When Im looking for players to sign, I want to be able to see how they have played in previous seasons.
10) I want to see player stats for players that r out on loan
11) U18, U21, U23 and reserve Leagues. I wanna be able to manage or hire a coach to take teams for the following leagues. Half the time players just arent ready for 1st team football so it would be good to have the those to keep them busy. Then the coach would give a report after each week or month or season.
12) fixed potentials must go. Players should grow/ decline based on form not potential. Sometimes u can have a 31 year old that scored 33 goals in a season but still declines massively anyway. Or on the other hand u can have a young player that never plays but will still grow massively. Players should improve after 7 games of good form or something like that. Kick off already has this implemented so career mode can have it too.
13) More manager customization
14) The abilty to apply for any club or country without having to wait for an offer.
15) Its too easy to sign players. Someone like Messi isnt gonna move to a club like Arsenal just like that. A player should sign based on performance and how much money is being offered.
16) Loan to buy offers need to return
17) Request funds option needs to return
18) Too many loan and transfer moves out of the club are breaking down
19) Managers in other clubs are never fired or never retire
20) Transfer delegations take too long
21) Not enough players have faces
22) Unrealistic Youth player faces. Im finding my Youth academy full of black people from asia or white people from brazil. And the names never match the faces or country of origin either.
23) Youth players should grow taller and bulkier over the years. 16 year olds still have time to grow physically so ya.
24) Players in general should age and change based on age
25) The ability to train every stat including skill moves, weak foot and work rates as well as every other stat. Obviously some things must grow slower than others but i wanna be able to train players my way.
26) Position training. The ability to change a players position.
27) More cutscenes. The game is currently very bland and the news section is boring. Places that the scenes could be implemented in r press conferences, team talks and post match interviews.
28) I want player Morale and performance to be affected by things done and said by manager as well as fan and board opinions changing based on the above.
29) Team chemistry in career mode. When a new player signs they have to take time to build chemistry with the rest of the squad and u as the manager.
30) For my final point i want AGUEROS FACE TO ACTUALLY EXIST FFS!!!!!
And im done. Mention things u think i missed and i hope u agree with the ones i have listed. I REAAALLLY hope EA see this and actually do something with the game mode that made FIFA huge in the 1st place. Please EA. Yall need to make a change now or else people are gonna start leaving and fast.
U guys can take these points and repeat them so that EA have to see them and actually do something.
Thanks for reading:)
