EA Sports finally launched its much awaited FIFA 20 on Friday and fans absolutely pounced on their copies and tried the new game out.
From the biggest football stars to us fans, everyone has been picking up their copy and updating their first experience of the new game on social media handle Twitter.
The fan interaction on FIFA 20's launch was so big that it actually was trending on top of Worldwide Trends on Twitter last night.
And then, within
For the first time in 8 years, I'm not buying FIFA on release day. #FixCareerMode— Will (@WillNSNO) September 27, 2019
#FIFA20 Career Mode Review— BMOnus🥡 (@BMOnusGamer) September 27, 2019
Borderline unplayable mess. New features are so poorly implemented it destroys all the immersion that's fundamental to a franchise mode experience. Uncategorically the worst Career Mode ever released and it's not close. #FixCareerMode
I look forward to playing career mode in FIFA every year and the fact that AI team selection is worse than its ever been, despite the fact the pitch notes said the algorithm fixed it is just atrocious and embarrassing. Unplayable garbage #FixCareerMode— Burnsy (@MinnesotaBurns) September 27, 2019
Its trending for a reason! Because people care. People bought into the idea of new features and fixes advertised. Needs to be adresses with the highest of urgencies. No talking, more actions. It shouldve never come this far when proper testing wouldve been done. #FixCareerMode pic.twitter.com/KIOMsXvI2e— Cani (@CaniSports) September 27, 2019
You really not gonna let me have more of a break? This is just one of MANY bugs with career mode and dont get me started on the player stalking glicth! #FIFA20 #FixCareerMode @EASPORTSFIFA @EAHelp pic.twitter.com/k5jwa6VuAp— Hxnleyy (@Hxnley) September 26, 2019
We tolerated Juventus being gone.— Niral Pokhrel (@PokhrelNiral) September 27, 2019
We tolerated Allianz Arena being gone.
We even tolerated Camp Nou not being in FIFA for a few years now. All we asked was a playable Career Mode and they can't even give that to us. #FixCareerMode
I’m done with @EA, once again releasing a broken game that’s simply unplayable for career mode fans. They promised so much and managed to make the mode worse than last year. This was my last fifa. #FixCareerMode— CS (@CitySection) September 27, 2019
This is the first time ever I actually asked for a refund for a video game. Career Mode is 100% broken and unplayable. What has @EASPORTSFIFA done? Nothing. False advertising, and horrible customer service. #FixCareerMode— Nordic Griffin (@GriffinNordic) September 27, 2019
#FixCareerMode if not @EAFIFAesports should refund u for the game as we have bought a broken game. If I buy a t-shirt and get it home and find a hole in it I take it back and get my money back what's the difference with all the fifa players buying a fucked game. @MGH @FifaCMTips— RIchard Brown (@n0dzzy) September 27, 2019
Funny you react so fast on FUT bugs, but COMPLETELY ignore the bug making Career Mode unplayable.#FixCareerMode— Andreas (@andreas9191991) September 27, 2019
So now FIFA 20 is making seasons 75+ games long?— Sam💫 (@DonJorginho) September 27, 2019
It's disgraceful for a company to release a game with a key game mode this severely broken and with no communication with the fans onto when it will be finished.#FixCareerMode pic.twitter.com/kvvBpJn0NX
Have a read of this, great summary of the hot garbage that is career mode this year: https://t.co/XCs24wov7E— FIFA Scouting Tips (@FIFAscouting) September 27, 2019
"Wanted to take a few minutes and address some of the concerns regarding career mode, some of the action being taken internally and also speak on why some fixes take more time than others," Andress wrote on Twitter.
He continued, "First off, definitely want to acknowledge the feedback and we’ve been tracking a lot of the posts and initial complaints on various platforms. Let me say that the team is aware and prioritizing fixes for this area and have been successful in identifying some of the issues."
Talking about a timeline for issues to be resolved, Andress stated, "In terms of an ETA or exact changes, I can’t provide that yet, but also want to be transparent and say it won’t be immediate. Being that Career Mode is client-based (offline), we need to patch. Patches take time as fixes have to be identified, fixed, tested and then certified by first-party. Our first patch is on the way and locked, so likely we’ve missed the ability to put CM fixes in that patch."
Andress concluded, "I am fully aware that that is not what you want to hear, but I also don’t want to leave you without answers on this one. We are continuing to prioritise and push these issues with urgency, so hopefully we’ll have more to share soon.
