Following the kick off of EA Sports FC 24 TOTS, its latest update stops managers from cheekily dodging firings

Bad news if you were planning to take a break from pack openings by roleplaying as an uno-reverse card wielder who gets relegated all the time.

Hello there, EA Sports FC 24 lovers. I know it's been a little while and you've just started getting some nice Team of the Season Ultimate Team upgrades to collect, but a fresh title update's also just rocked up for the game. Sadly, it's without any freaky red and blue non-humans to demo changes, and it stops you from, er, avoiding unemployment.

Yes, you heard me. Stop trying to pack Kai Havertz for a minute, this a serious one for folks who love playing manager mode, and can't resist keeping the threat of being let go switched on, even though all of their signings always turn out to be terrible and their tactics haven't evolved since 2004.

As detailed in the notes for EA FC 24's title update 13, one of the fixes it enacts stops Career Mode managers casually frauding their way back into jobs. Basically, what was previously happening was that sometimes, when your club decided to chuck you out of the window for spending $100 million on a goalie and then playing him as a number 10 and terminated your contract, "the next job offer [you got] could have incorrectly been for the same club".

So, if you're not a fan of turning down all of the stakes on your careers in order to make sure you can pretty much do what you want, clubs now won't come running back to you like they're languishing in 19th place at Christmas and you're Sam Allardyce. Devastating, I know.

Among other issues the update's handily tried to rectify are some with Ultimate Team new level notifications popping up without you actually having levelled up and "instances of Concept Player position search not functioning as intended". Career Mode should also no longer see the CPU accelation slider be randomly lowered if you decide to give Legendary difficulty a go and, er, penalty takers randomly not being selected during shootouts.

Also, four players have had their heads updated, which is good for them.

If you're currently deep in the TOTS mines, definitely make sure to check out our really handy live TOTS tracker, which we'll be regularly updating to help you stay abreast of exactly how close each player is to earning an upgrade.
