A FIFA 18 player, Stuart Holmes, recently created a petition on Change.org demanding EA Sports to fix various in-game issues. The petition received a solid public attention, as more than  22,000 players have signed it over the past few days.

Here’s what Holmes and other players want EA Sports to work on:

  • “Input Delay/EA Servers during online seasons/any online game mode including WL causing button delay ( Always been a problem but certainly does need addressing. )

  • Freezing when trying to access ‘Featured Squad’ in Squad Battles

  • Change of kit numbers

  • Bug where when the ball goes out of play power bar/player name vanishes

  • Catalogue XP not working – UPDATE FIXED 23/11/17

  • Matchmaking ( A new WL Format and Matchmaking would do wonders )

  • Sending invites on Pro Clubs does not work, some state it does sometimes by following steps but many cannot confirm this.

  • 40 games in a weekend is both mentally and physically unhealthy. To encourage a child or even adult to play.”

Holmes also criticizes EA’s customer support, practically saying that making a petition is the only way for the company to hear what players have to say. We’ll see if this action will cause any reactions from EA.

Indeed, EA forums are flooded with various complaints about the game. But that’s actually the case with just about any game today. Only the number of complaints differs from title to title. It’s just how games are made today.

We recently wrote a roundup article with some of the most common FIFA 18 issues, along with recommended solutions. It will be helpful for resolving some problems, but unfortunately, not all of them.

For additional solutions, we’ll have to wait and see if EA will take into account this petition and all the complaints that come with it.

Have you experienced some issues while playing FIFA 18 yourself? Let us know in the comments below.
