FIFA 20 players frustrated as bugs plague Web App & Companion App

EA SPORTS have been urged by FIFA 20 players to make changes to the game’s Web App and Companion App, as bugs have made it pretty much impossible to complete simple FUT tasks. 

Seasoned veterans of the game will know by now that every year we get two applications, both of which allow us to play Ultimate Team away from our consoles or PC.

The former is available on iOS and Android devices, while the other can be accessed on computers. This means that members of the community should be able to open packs, check out Weekend League rewards, build teams, and complete SBCs on the go. However, some of those features haven’t really been made possible of late due to several glitches.

FIFA 20 players don’t just use these apps for FUT Champs rewards, either. 

Users have been complaining about the quality of the application for some time. The topic of conversation came back up on Reddit on May 22, with one player, AkilleezBomb, revealing a video of what’s happening on there, urging developers to get things sorted and back to normal.

They said: “This has been an issue on the app for at least 2 months now and it hasn’t been addressed once.” As seen in the clip below, even basic features such as searching for cards in your club doesn’t work as it should in the Companion App, and others have claimed the same problems are present in the PC version, too.

This is supposed to be a handy option for those wanting to complete SBCs and building teams on the move, but without this functionality, some are having to use more time-consuming methods.

One user said: “Yep. It’s so annoying. When completing upgrade SBC’s, I have to sort by gold/lowest rated or pick a specific position. It used to work fine earlier in the year.”

The original poster also chimed in with another message, stating it had been frustrating to use on both mobile and PC. They said: “I get it on both. The only time it works on the mobile/web app is when searching concept players or the market. But you can’t search for DEF/MID/ATT in your club.”

Whether or not EA is working on a fix is unclear, but according to these comments, fans have been waiting for a fix to be rolled out for quite some time. Hopefully, it won’t be much longer.


How to complete Alessandrini Flashback SBC in FIFA 21: solutions & cost

A new Flashback SBC is available in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team for French Winger Romain Alessandrini, celebrating his goal-studded 2017-2018 seasons for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

SBC’s are a great way to fill out your card collection in FUT, and if you’re in need of something new on the outside, Alessandrini might be just the man you’re looking for.

Now playing for Chinese Super League team Qingdao Huanghai, the Winger notched two of the best seasons in his career while playing for the LA Galaxy in the MLS (13 goals in 2017 & 11 in 2018), which this new Flashback card harkens back to.

Fans who played Ultimate Team in FIFA 18 will remember how good the Frenchman’s cards were – almost everyone had either his first or second In-Form on their bench as a super-sub, and his nationality made it easier to even start him, for those who wanted to.

Stats for Alessandrini’s Flashback SBC in FIFA 21.

To start off, just check out that 92 Pace on an 85 OVR card. You really couldn’t ask for anything better with 91 Sprint Speed and 93 Acceleration. Shooting, Passing, and Dribbling also all clock in at high to mid-80s as well.

Defending and Physicality are his weak points, but the good news is that there’s only one single challenge you have to knock out in order to wrap up this SBC and grab the fleet-footed Frenchman’s new card for yourself.

Altogether these tasks should run you around 92,000 to about 105,000 FUT Coins to complete, which isn’t too shabby at all considering the Acceleration and Sprint Speed stats he’s packing. The full requirements are listed below:

Romain Alessandrini

  • Number of players from France: Min 1
  • IF Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

Below are a couple of the cheapest solutions we’ve found to this Flashback SBC, and to make things even easier they don’t require any loyalty to complete.

Now that you know all there is to know about how to knock this SBC out, the only question left is: is it worth it? Looking at the stats alone, especially that 92 Pace, we’d definitely say this SBC is worthwhile if you can afford to complete it.

If you can muster up the coinage prior to the challenge expiring on Friday, December 4, then definitely look into it because this could be a highly-coveted super-sub that you can’t get your hands on later.
