In all fairness to FIFA 18, there is no shortage of playable leagues and cups, complete with the player licenses to accompany them, but EA will always be under pressure to deliver more, since it wants fans to part with their hard-earned cash each year.
Upwards of 30 divisions may be plenty, but there's certainly room for improvement. The Brazilian top flight, for instance, is full of generated players, and high-profile competitions such as the Chinese Super League are absent entirely.
Then there are the countries where only the top flight is represented, which means Career Mode within them is a hollow experience, with no promotion or relegation and only a handful of teams competing for the domestic cups. Scotland suffers from this problem, and a few years ago, that meant Rangers were absent from the series.
Okay, so there isn't much call to include the Scottish League One and Two in FIFA 19, although it would be useful for the purposes of giving the most skilled players a handicap when taking on their friends. Forcing your unbeatable buddy to play as Edinburgh FC while you control Barcelona would no doubt even things up.
