    you might be able to extend it, but who knows if that will cause the game to crash once you start the 16th season.

    FIFA 2005 Hands-On Preview

    He played the full game alreayd, and he confirmed that you must start with a Division 2 team..
    guess that ends the mystery?

    Personally, I reckon tahts a stupid idea..
    hopefully they'll have a season mode which is like career without the manager side of it......

    else, not much point getting the game..
    i will NEVER be motivated enough to go through multiple seasons with some Dvision 2 team before getting to play as Man Utd... (also the reason I ain't playing Master League in Winning 11)...

    HOPEFULLY, there is some last minute changes to this and let the users choose...

    the simulation is there for a good reason, so you can just fast-forward your matches for a couple of seasons and hopefully you can move up the divisions quickly enough...

    i'll take my time...no real hurry anyway, and i'm guessing i'll be playing the whole matches...that way i'll enjoy myself even more, i'm sure ;)

    hopefully EA will maybe have an unlockable option which will allow the player to start in the top division with team of his/her choice.

    Certainly EA must realize that a lot of people wanna play as their favourite team right away and do so for many seasons with all the manager aspects.
    It would have been so easy to implement... I really do not understand why they didn´t.
    It´s just bad service.

    Actually the reason they included the division one teams is because there was so much demand for them. I don't think they were worried about people not playing with certain teams.

    If you want to play as a top team you can play as them in the league and cup modes. But if you want to play them in career mode you'll have to work your way up. It is career mode after all and all careers begin at the bottom and work there way up.

    If you play as league mode, do u get all the other tournaments (eg. CL and all that)

    actually, what are the differences between career and league?

    The career mode looks great! I like the idea of having to start with a low level club and having to work your way up, but I understand some guys just wanting to control their favourite team the whole 15 seasons.

    I only wish that it was possible to have more than one club be human-controlled but it's not the end of the world.

    the prob is that we can't manage the club we want to directly so maybe all the good players or the one's which we like may not be there.

    Yeah I can understand that. Who knows, maybe they will change their mind about this feature, and you will be able to manage whatever club you want right from the start. But it doesn't sound like that's the case at this point in time.

    For career, is it just season with some personal aspect? ...

    Or is it completely two different things?

    I think the idea of starting in a lower league team is cool, but why should you have to start in div2 uk, why not like Italian Serie B Tim????
