FIFA 20 actually releases today, but one of its flagship modes isn't in the best shape. Career Mode has a long, long list of issues that either turn its take on realism into a bit of a joke or break the game entirely. It's gotten to the point where huge megathreads are having to be created on EA's Help website that detail every problem, but according to some posts on Reddit, the publisher is actually deleting these posts in an attempt to downplay the game's flaws.
In a post from Reddit user SpookyMulder, it is said that EA is attempting to silence the community and that their post which uncovered eight new bugs was deleted almost immediately after posting. They go on to link to a thread on EA's forums, which at the time of writing is still active, that contains numerous posts about how threads have been disappearing from the home page.
User MedBoy101 said: "After they cleaned up my thread from bumping, @EA_Lanna welcomed criticism. The criticism continued as they said they don't silence that. After I posted 9 NEW REPORTED BUGS, EA closed my thread. EA is hours from release and tried to silence a report that the state of CM is unplayable."
The state of FIFA 20's Career Mode didn't go unnoticed by ourselves either, with deputy editor Robert Ramsey stating in the Push Square review: "This year, Career Mode is in desperate need of a patch or two. Or three. It's functional, but it's shockingly buggy -- the kind of bugs that take you right out of the game just when you're trying to immerse yourself in the search for glory with your favourite club."

EA doing something crappy
and in other news water is wet
Not surprising in the least.
I was kinda intrested in fifa for vota or whatever its is but now its hard pass
Don't think the bugs matter, the game looks that stupid and ridiculous and just focused on silly tricks and goals are that so unrealistic maybe it being broken is a good thing
This coming from a company that doesn't understand why they are hated...
I know it's awful but I can't help feeling a strong sense of schadenfreude (who, incidentally, plays left back in my master league team)
One of the main issues is that career mode is one of those modes that EA would probably love to drop because it is essentially self contained compared to the other modes like ultimate (as I understand it). And as it is EA, no one can trust that this mode hasn't been deliberately neglected because, you know, trust.
@Rudy_Manchego Lol, it’s not exactly a money maker compared to UT so unless they do a 2K and link progression to money, it’s wasted resources as far as they’re concerned.
why do they never learn that trying to silence people always results in more backlash than the original issue?
@Rudy_Manchego They probably look on at NBA2K with incredibly envious eyes!
@nessisonett Yep - why bother investing. A little like single player campaigns in COD, big publishers are just not interested in modes that don't generate further revenue.
@KALofKRYPTON Oh yes, I expect they wonder how to fit a fully working casino into the campaign somehow...
@Rudy_Manchego Pretty plausible I reckon, footballers being the playful scamps they are.
Censorship for company and political gains goes on all over the internet. We shouldn’t be surprised any more, especially from a company like EA...
They aren't deleting comments its just "Surprise Removal".
EA is the most hated gaming company in the world for a reason.
Well deserved dishonor.
A lot of articles about FIFA on here, can't see any about PES which has been out for 2 weeks and is the better game. I was tempted to go buy it anyway today (more money than sense). I prefer PES career mode anyway as you can play in a proper coach mode, so it's a nice chillout and gives the fingers a rest.
Interestingly no reviews or ratings are showing up on the FIFA 20 listings on amazon either which I’ve never seen before. At least not as I type this in the UK anyway...
I always assumed FIFA was very buggy since they have to rerelease it every year.
On Metacritic this currently has a user score of 1.6!! Says it all really.
Shame they can't delete FIFA while they're at it.
