6. ‘Too many requests’ on the Web App

Another frequent error that’s preventing FIFA 18 players from enjoying the game affects the Web App. More specifically, when players want to sell or buy players, an error message appears informing them that there are too many requests and the action cannot be completed.

The exact alert that appears is the following: “Too Many Requests: Too many actions have been taken, and use of this feature has been temporarily disabled”. This issue affects only the web app.

“I too have this problem. I have been trading non stop last 12 hours to try and get some coins. Building it up 300 coins at a time… slow and painful but I want a couple of cards now I am getting error messages and “too many requests”.
What is going on? EA please let me know how long this ban is in place for and why I am banned in the first place!”

It appears that this error occurs become EA bans players who trade too frequently in order to make sure that they’re not bots.

7. FUT 18 Friendly Season results are broken

If you like playing FIFA with your friends, don’t expect the results to appear on the season progress, history or overall record. This bug affected FIFA 17 as well, and it appears that FIFA 18 players will also have to deal with it.

“I’m having this issues as well. In FIFA 17, I played over 50 seasons with a friend, it was so fun. But a few months back eveything reset to 0. We’ve waited for FIFA 18, bought the Ronaldo Edition, but the bug still exists.”

The good news is that EA already acknowledged the issue and is working on a fix.

8. Sound issues

When players get into dialogues, the sound on The Journey is sometimes broken or doesn’t work at all. Music is still available in the background but the dialogue is broken.

“Had the same problem: i am on PC. This is now the day after its full release and the audio is still not working.
Sometimes i quit the game on an important scene with no audio and turn it back on and the audio works fine for 2 minutes which confuses me.
I have tried changing the settings multiple times but the journey cutscene audio still isn’t working […]
Music plays every cutscene and i use substitles but they dont work unless the audio is luckily working for a bit. […] im starting to feel like i just wasted 50 quid.”

General troubleshooting steps such as updating the sound drivers, installing the latest updates, and so on, fail to fix the problem.

This brings us to the end of our list. As you can see, FIFA 18 is pretty buggy right now, but we’re sure EA will fix these issues as soon as possible. Don’t forget to install the latest game updates as soon as they’re available.
