Fifa 14 financial takeover not working

★★★★ Newbie
I have purchased the financial take over at level fifteen I was of the understanding that because I bought it whilst in my first season it would not activate until the start of my second season, I am now I. The second season and this still hasn't activated. Why? And any troubleshoots?

This seems like it's been a real problem in previous FIFAs and EA Sports just cannot be bothered to fix it!


The catalogue is a complete waste of time as it doesn't work properly, particularly in Career Mode.


The Scout purchase also has it's problems and you cannot redeem it more than once either.


Sorry I cannot be more help, but I also spoke to an EA Help Advisor who confirmed there is a known issue with the catalogue and they're 'looking' in to it.... I'll believe it when I see it though Confusedmileyfrustrated:

Unfortunately, as I mentioned in my post, I have already done what you suggest.


The EA Sports Customer Support Representative said that there are 'known issues' with the catalogue, but I'm guessing if these bugs have not been fixed since Fifa13, they're not going to get sorted any time soon? Maybe due to EA Sports being far keener to concentrate their efforts in getting money out of the customer via FUT, than ensure the game actually works 100%?
