    They kind of fixed it, sort of, maybe. They still go after strikers, but certainly not the extent that it was a couple years ago. I think the new thing in career mode that frustrates me to no end is that it is impossible to sell/loan players of mid-level quality.

    Or don't forget the praising your player gets your player angry

    You: You scored a hat trick!! I want to say you had a fantastic game

    Player: It wasn't a good game to my standards. How dare you speak to me like that!?! I want a transfer!!!!

    Hazard going for 69m while Costa goes for 90m. :laugh:

    Yeah FM always has some weird transfers. Real Madrid and Barcelona have been bugging me for Mane every season.

    And to think FM rates Coquelin over Ndombele and Lingard over Pepe, Bruno Fernandes or plenty of others.

    I just don't understand this crazy market. 200 million for Varane, 92 for Costa while Hazard goes for 69. Then Juventus sells half their club and do no replace anyone.

    Using a small club is so hard because the expectations are off the wall.

    Big clubs want you to win everything, but they don't care how you do it. Every year when I managed Liverpool, the expectation was literally to win the treble, but how? Not of consequence. Youth squad? **** 'em! Take this $200m and knock yourself out.

    The small clubs actually also want you to win multiple trophies, but you have to do so while promoting half the youth squad most of whom are in the 60's overall.

    Also when you are a small club and you over achieve to qualify for the Europa League or CL for the first time in the clubs history and the expectation is to win it.

    Like come on Brighton board we aint winning the CL with Glen Murray as Striker!

    No, the main reason is:

    Qatar has an exemption that allows foreigners to drink alcohol, but Kuwait has a complete ban that would have been problematic for FIFA, which has Budweiser as a major sponsor.

    I tried to get into the new career mode and immediately went back to FIFA 17.

    The transfer window is enough of a nonsensical headache without a cutscene every time you burp.

    I mean, the cinematics unveiling the player once he's signed are cool, but I don't need a minute long scene (including load times) for him to tell me £100,000 is below him and he'll never speak to me again, three more cutscenes by the time I'm finished simming through the week, and then another cutscene for the same player to sign for £100,005.

    Yeah the cutscenes were cool for about 5 minutes when they introduced them ,but it got old real quick. It fixed a problem that needed to be solved by signing a player the same day you start negotiations, but it introduced new problems like the stuff you said. But that's further down the list of problems in career mode.

    FIFA 20 going to have a FIFA street variant available in the game with 3v3, 4v4, and 5v5 modes. Looks fun but nothing groundbreaking.

    looks cool, but if that's the big reveal then that's underwhelming.

    They should just bring back the fifa street franchise. Those were actually pretty fun games back in the day.

    Going through the descriptions of Volta it actually sounds a lot like NHL 19 threes that they added last year.

    Hopefully we find out next week at e3. It's been needing an overhaul for so many years that if it does not come this cycle I will likely not be buying.

    Career mode is the most fun I have. I don’t think it’s that bad

    Definitely my favourite game mode as well, It's just well past time for some kind of refresh. Something more than just the reskin of the CL and Europa League
