Why EA doesnt give us to choose the height?

1
In fifa 19 I saw the height of players in CM, now in FIFA 20 Demo I see the height in Feet.
Height is one of the most important things in the game and I do not want to check everytime that I need in futbin or something like this.
Why the hell dont just give us the right to choose between the two?!

    You have to keep in mind that the demo is nowhere near the full version of the game.

    You'll be able to see height in centimeter in FIFA 20.

    T he demo is only like 10% of what the actual game will be like.

    Im likely to sign a 6ft 4 CB, but if in CM's I'll probably end up with one that's 170cm 😝

    That's because the demo is English only, you probably use a different language when you're on the full game.

    Yeah but it's a really rubbish method for height. It's too vague.

    In our country CM is the main height "tool" , its much easier for me

    lets just hope that in the full game it will be different.. but I really do not get it why EA doesnt give us to choose

    Metric is vague? Everything in a factor of 100 is vague yet no such factor in feet and inches and such?

    Allright there, Brexit, stage left.

    Because it's smaller numbers. Not hundreds of increments.
    Every defender over 6'. Rather than going "oh i can't use Defendinho hes 1.023729 mm shorter than Defenaldo"

    Better have EA put players height in mm to make it better for you.

    They're a strong link. 6'2 and 6'3 so you know their height is good 😉

    When in mm, it only adds a 0 behind it. Let's say, everyone to their own. By this time I know both measurements, but I can see why people want the measurement which they're comfortable with. However, in cm is more accurate

    Chiellini 187cm/6,1ft
    De Ligt 188cm/6,2ft
    Koulibaly 187cm/6,2ft

    It's not exactly difficult.

    The vast majority of countries around the world use the metric system. The UK and USA are basically stubborn and insist on using an inferior set of units.

    America basically ignored all metric units and sticks with the old, pounds, miles, Fahrenheit.

    The UK is the most confusing, as it is a hybrid between metric and imperial. We use miles on roads, cm for small distances, although switch to feet and inches for height. We buy things in grams, but use stone and ounces to describe our own weight. It's pretty silly really.

    I'm English, so I'm more familiar with feet and inches for height, but I'm fine with cm too.

    Seriously? What u guys learning in school? Surely u cant háve problém with such an easy thing.
  • This is something the player should be able to choose. If the game tried to force me to read all heights in CM I would be peeved off. It means nothing to me when trying to understand a players height. Feet and inches is the only measurement that works for me in this regard but it works both ways. If you are only used to CM then damn it, CM you should be able to choose. Actually, you should be able to toggle units of measurements whilst looking at the stats in my view.

    Even more annoying is weight in pounds.

    If you're playing on PC you can change units in /data/locale.ini file. New patch will overwrite this file with old default settings so you have to change it every time.

    EA totally ignores people who don't have native translation and are forced to use US/English version, which are using their own measuring system.
