Konami gives free myClub coins due to wrong PES 2020 team lineups

Konami's eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2020 had some incorrect team lineups at launch which caused the company to apologise to players and hand out free myClub coins as compensation for the inconvenience. Might as well claim them.

Juventus is one of the partner clubs for eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2020 so it is quite ridiculous that the Bianconeri lineup was not properly updated at the game's launch. Namely, former Arsenal midfielder, Aaron Ramsey is still with the Gunners and not with the Italian champion.

While day one patches are not always a welcome thing, PES 2020 would have benefited from one greatly. The game launched on 10 September 2019 and hasn't been properly updated to reflect the latest transfers.

While Ramsey hickup is the biggest, given the partnership between Juve and Konami, it is not the only one. Eden Hazard is still wearing blue in the latest PES instalment, instead of Real Madrid's white.

Players likely weren't partial to such blunders and Konami apologised in a note addressed to the fans. As compensation, anyone who plays the tutorial before 12 September 2019 will get 500 myClub coins at no charge.

The reason this offer is timed is that the developers are planning to launch an update on that particular day, after which the lineups should reflect the current affairs of thing in featured leagues. If you have purchased PES 2020, you might as well jump in and grab the free currency.

Then again, not everyone plays myClub so this compensation may not be that useful to them. Unfortunately, such players will not get any form of compensation but at least the wait for proper rosters will not be that long.

Still, those who played the game so far have only positive things to say about it, largely praising the gameplay and a few misplaced names seem to have done minimal damage to the overall experience.
