Missing English Commentary Names

Will missing commentary names for English Language Commentary be addressed in a patch? I find it incredibly frustrating each year when players have no call name assigned to them in game. I understand the few rare exceptions if a player is new to the league and never had his name recorded but players who had call names in Fifa 18 are missing their call names in Fifa19.

What is even more frustrating is when a player has a name recorded for player introductions but then has nothing assigned for the pace of play. It ruins the audio chain. Case in point Hakan Calhanoglu. His name is called in every Milan lineup introduction pregame but when he possess the ball in game we are met with crickets...

I play my career mode as Leicester and Valencia. Players like Chilwell, Maddison, Soler, Torres, and hundreds more across major clubs are missing English language commentary call names.

  • I also find this frustrating. Try playing a game with Ajax. The commentary pretty much goes silent as Martin Tyler only says about 2 of their players names. It appears that all the foreign commentators on the game added new names this year but the English commentators didn’t. Just seems silly that the likes of Ruben Neves, Keita, Chilwell, Wan Bissaka, Ake, De Ligt, Torreira, Richarlison etc dont get their names said by the English commentators.
    It would be great if you could edit players commentary names too. They’ll say ‘Sarr’ for Malang Sarr but nothing for Ismaila Sarr. This happens a lot with names like Lopez, Gomez, Rodriguez etc. It’s already in the game, just hasn’t been added to all the players.

    Oh man, I forgot about the names already programmed in yet unassigned to players. They can say Gomez for Joe Gomez but not Sergio Gomez. It just seems like sheer laziness and can easily be patched.

    If you create a player you can set their call name as Sessegnon but it isn’t assigned to Ryan. Like it was recorded!!!

    In my manager mode whenever I consider signing a player I have to quit out to kickoff and be sure they have a name assigned. To my frustration this rarely is the case. I hate playing and having the experience diluted because of breaks in the commentary chain when a player unassigned a call name possesses the ball.

    How is the best way to bring this info to EA’s attention? I’ve tweeted their support page and not received any response. Surly a junior programmer can assign prerecorded names to players. Give the kids something to do!!!!!
  • In the champions league mode I've noticed they say a lot of names that Martin Tyler doesn't say.

    Like you say we should be able to edit the commentary names as there is a big list of them to choose from,

    Yeah, for Rangers Martin Tyler only says Candeias and Tavernier (wrongly), Derek Rae says almost the entire team
  • What is the best way to bring this to the attention of EA? So many players are missing names which are recorded in Create A Player.

    I agree incredibly frustrating it says all the the playing names in the europa and champions league games!?! It’s lazy ness
  • Why say Trent Alexander Arnoald when paying in Europe but not in the and of the league games ?
  • Just mess around and play Madrid v Juve in kick off mode. The commentary chains are pretty well rounded and don’t seem as repetitive because the random dialogue is cut off by player call names. Then go play as Lyon v Ajax and you hear the same recycled lines over and over because about 4 combined starters from both teams have commentary names assigned. It can’t be that hard to fix this EA!!!!!
