Name offensive?

Recommended Posts

Tried using my last name "Connell" in career mode and it was denied for being offensive?? I don't even get how that's offensive. 

Can this be fixed or am I gonna have to make a fictional character?

See you, you're an awful Connell sometimes.

No idea. Fifa does this sometimes. Also remember someone with what appeared to be a normal name having theirs blocked on pCars so it's probably just a standard set of words/names which get incorrectly flagged

Do you think there is any chance it gets fixed or should I just play my career as someone else? Highly disappointed right now as I was looking forward to this for a long time...:(

No idea. Never had a problem with it in any other games. It only works up to Conn...after the e it will flag it offensive.

Hahaha. I just googled 'Conne'. Apparently it means [Female dog](insult) or idiot in French...

Lol. I'm not sure how responsive developers are on the forums but any suggestions to get this noticed by a Dev would be awesome. Really a shame I can't enjoy this career mode winning as myself

Maybe try typing 'onnell' and then moving the cursor back and putting the C on the front? I had a friend with the surname Scunthorpe that couldn't type it directly into some games and websites but somehow managed to trick his way past by misspelling and then putting a character back in.

Conne is a French word that is used as an insult. You'll find it on urban dictionary
His name is Connell. He should still be able to use it.

The system would make a lot more sense if  they do the check only when you actually submit the name, as opposed to checking it while you're still typing.

Hey, totally agree, I was just offering an explanation. I suggest a workaround above that might work

Thanks. I gave this a try and it didn't work. "onnell" works but that's it. Clearly the word "Conne" is the issue. Anyone know how to reach a dev at all?

Also, I'm on PS4

Awesome news. Thanks! I just wanted to make sure it was known about the issue before I got deep into career mode. I saw it on Twitter that some others were having issues. For now I'll settle for the pro career mode until the next update.

Do we have a timeline of when the next update will occur for those of us waiting for career mode fixes?
