Edit Player Menu Issue

FIFA 20 Edit Player only allows 1 player to be edited + saved and then it automatically reverts back to the main Edit Player menu as shown in the gif below. This makes editing players completely inefficient and time consuming.

In FIFA 19,18,17... multiple players could be edited + saved within Edit Player without being sent back to the Edit Player after each save.

EA, please revert the Edit Player to the way it was prior to FIFA 20.

    Thanks for the support guys!

    This definitely needs to be changed in FIFA 21 - surely they can revert it so we can edit multiple players instead of being kicked out to the main menu everytime

    I agree - Madden you can edit everything including contracts, player growth, age, etc.

    Tbh the game has obvious design flaws that the skeptic in me makes me thinn theyre doing it intentionally.

    Make editing players and restricting players more annoying and difficult so maybe folks will get annoyed and go play fut and buy packs. maybe too cynical but given the amount of terrible features, lack of investment in career league and the gameplay manipulation, hard to think theres another explanation, aside from ineptness or under staffing issues.

    This is the most definitive explanation of what is being done by EA to offline game modes and editable features. Year by year features are removed like in edit payer and career mode and bugs aren’t fixed or left with the intention of dissuading people from playing anything other than fut.

    Crazy that they never fixed this. The game has been neglected because of FUT.

    Sure is. It has to get fixed for FIFA 21 cause editing players on FIFA 20 takes forever...

    The only excuse I can think of for EA is that they've just dumped the database into the game as it is.

    Separating the leagues etc by region, clubs in order of ID not alphabetically...

    Be nice if the players were in order of position then rating within that. Or have the option to toggle between position and rating first.

    Hopefully this is just because the menu changed, they just dumped the database in, as it is. This will hopefully be resolved for 21.

    Hope it was an error and not intentional. Hope it’s fixed in 21.

    Expecting this edit player issue to be fixed in FIFA 21. Leaving it the way it’s been in FIFA 20 would be criminal

    I’m expecting it to be fixed in FIFA 21. All options should be editable as well: age, nationality, height, etc. This used to be possible in early fifas.

    So many things are a mess with editing players it's scary:

    The whole system of it reverting to the main menu and then Salzburg every time is a joke and so draining - a fix that works and makes that tedious process much quicker is to transfer players to Salzburg first and then it's only two clicks to get back to the team you're editing. It works perfectly fine for how I edit the game but it's obviously a long-winded no go if all you're wanting is to change boots or shirt numbers etc

    Not being able to add positions like CF, CM, WB or wingers

    The fact all secondary positions are removed as soon as you make one tiny edit to any player

    Not being able to edit defensive awareness or composure, meaning you could in theory create a defender with 99 on tackling and interceptions, but he'd still be ❤️❤️❤️❤️ because his defensive awareness is capped at 60.

    After you've created a player you can't change his appearance

    You can only use a few accents in the player's name field when creating a player and some really common ones are missing, yet they're available to be used on kit name even though full stops and apostrophes aren't

    You can't edit skill moves or international reputation, or add/remove traits

    The weird order of teams and players when editing. If you do transfer all players to Salzburg, they seem to be in an order where players transferred from the same team and league are clumped together

    A player's height and body type can't be edited, so players like Portu are a few inches too small

    The choice of hairstyles is quite weird and none of the beards really show up that dark. There's no texture to them

    Sure there's plenty more too, but it's all just a bit odd an half-arsed as usual from EA

    EA the Edit Player menu issue needs to be addressed in FIFA 21.

    FIFA 21 cannot have this issue!

    Agreed. Quite a few things from Fifa 17, Fifa 18, Fifa 19 and Fifa 20 still not fixed in the Fifa 21 Beta either, even with an 8.4GB Title Update..

    Im still not getting many offers, if at all, for players i place on Loan, loans always fall through still and i STILL get transfer offers for my players the DAY after the Transfer Window closes.. Makes no sense!!

    If only the devs actually played the game they make 🤦🏻‍♂️
