Ever since it was first introduced on FIFA 2000, Career Mode has been one of the most popular modes in the game. With next year marking 20 years since the mode was first introduced (in a multiple season format with transfers) interest is still high and the number of suggestions for improvements is higher than ever.
With this high demand, a single unified community Career Mode Wishlist can help identify which features are most desired. Several high profile supporters of the mode have backed this wishlist idea and will be sharing this poll on their channels to help it get more votes and truly become the Community's wishlist.
Thank you to everyone who has given suggestions for new features in the Community Career Mode Wishlist thread
which has been running for the last few weeks. There were over 500 suggestions made and I have now collated the 10 most popular suggestions into a poll.
Everyone can vote for one option so let everyone know which of these features you'd most like to see included in FIFA.
The 10 options are explained below:
A data editor would allow everyone to add new clubs, leagues, cups or even completely reinvent a nations football pyramid. This would be something similar to creation centre and the Football Manager ‘pre-game editor’. For example you could create the National League (England's 5th tier) and then edit the FA Cup structure to include these new teams.
A way to share these files with others would be essential. This could be via a web app system like creation centre had or via an in game menu like Madden 19 uses for Custom Draft Classes.
Edit Player Mode
This would be similar to Madden 19's Edit Player Mode where you can change everything about a player including appearance, physical stats, attributes, traits and position.
Mid-Season Start Dates
With Mid-Season Start Dates it would be possible to pick up CM and start a save from any date in the season. Maybe you want to start on 12/12/18 using Shaktar Donetsk in their must win Champions League match at home to Lyon. Or you could try and make up Manchester United's sixteen point deficit on their Mancunian neighbours. This would allow you to save your club's season.
Fed up of having a pacey LB with a great shot? Wish you could play them at LW? Then this is the feature for you. Lots of players have changed position during their careers and this option would let you do just that via the in game training.
Turn maximum potentials into minimum potentials so that ANY PLAYER can become a superstar. This would make every save unique.
The GTN scouts and youth academy scouts should be merged into one “scout” section. This would allow users to decide if they want to concentrate on scouting players from other clubs or signing prospects up into their academy.
Maybe you've taken over a generic club and want to try and recreate their stadium. Maybe you've taken a League 2 side to the Premier League and want a new stadium instead of their small terraced stadium. Either way a stadium creator would benefit you. Using this you can design the stadium you want for your team.
The ability to hire other staff such as coaches and a medical team could be used to impact on different areas of the game. Sign a good doctor and have players recover from injuries quicker, sign a top attacking coach and have your strikers gain more benefit from training or maybe sign a youth coach and see your 16 year old starlet improve faster than you'd hoped. This option would add another dimension to managing your club and give you more 'off the field' issues to deal with.
A popular option from Manager Mode which many users would like to see make a return. Using visual sim you can watch the game unfold in front of you which making on the fly tactical changes to counter the other teams tactics. This would allow you to take on a more managerial role without playing any of the games.
The best ways to improve your youth players is to have them playing matches. With the addition of an U18/U21/U23 team at the club you could have them playing in the UEFA Youth League and Premier League 2 to get much needed match experience.
Remember you can only vote for one option (even though you would probably like to see all ten of these options included) so use your vote wisely.
This poll will run until 31/12/18 at 23:59 GMT.
Please note this wishlist is nothing to do with EA. The outcome of this poll does not guarantee a suggestion will be included in FIFA.
