FIFA 16 Referee Color Clash

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Why is it possible for referees to wear the same color shirt as my career mode team or my opponent? 

 

I play as Burton Albion FC, their home kit is a yellow top with black shorts, and my referee (photo attached) almost always seems to be wearing the same color combo. I can't tell you how many times I have tried to make a quick pass or tackle only to find I have pulled my own players out of position in an attempt to get the referee through on goal. 

 

EA sports this seems like a simple fix that could be made through an update. Please prevent these confusing color clashes from happening in the future or I'll be forced to play in Tottenham's purple kit all season. 

 

Cheers, 

 

Alex

@WhiteHeartLn Thanks for the post. It took me a couple of seconds to find the ref, which pretty much proves your point. 

 

I have word that there was an update to prevent clashes like you describe previously, but it doesn't appear to have caught all instances so it looks like another update may be required. 


On the offchance that you only play offline, can you go online and grab any updates in case the fix would help you and it just needs to be downloaded?


Thanks.

Thanks for replying to my post @EA_David.

 

I usually do play career mode but have since checked for updates and it appears I am current. Please let me know if any future updates get released to address the issue, it would be appreciated. 

 

Thanks,

referee has the same uniform color as the opposite team

★★★★ Novice

Referees most of the time has the same uniform color as kits from the opposite side! This is terrible - it seems you are playing against 12 players! When an opposite team is in red - referee is also in red! WTF? Is it so hard to check colors of the playing teams before the match and render a different color for the referee?!

Agreed its almost worse when its your team since you rarely need to pass to the opposing team!

Yeah i'm kinda having the same problem playing as CF Reus Deportu in Spain. Ref showing up in red * looking like one of my teammates. After trying to pass the ball to him a few times, I came here to see if it was only me, seems like something that should be fairly easy to sort out? Still happening in 17 sadly.
