Despite changing some of the mode’s features, upon release, the game’s Career Mode was criticized for being riddled with bugs including computer-controlled opposition managers picking unusually weak teams, players changing positions seemingly at random, and unexplained rating changes.
The criticism has been described as “issues that either turn its take on realism into a bit of a joke or break the game entirely”, with claims that EA is attempting to cover up or downplay the game’s flaws. The “#FixCareerMode” hashtag trended for several days on Twitter in the United Kingdom, with fans hoping to draw attention to the issues in the mode. On 16 October 2019, EA responded by releasing a new patch for the game which fixed various issues that were reported to be present.
