Online play

Exhibition, head to head online play, always shows 0 searching and 0 playing and then just cycles and never finds a match? Anyone know how to fix this? Another EA product that glitches and sucks as their gaming credibility continues to go down the drain

    Can you try power cycling the console and your local network? I've experienced this before in the past and that did the trick.

    Reboot the power to the modem/router
    1. Unplug the power cable from your modem/router for 5-10 minutes to refresh the network.

    How to power cycle your Xbox console:
    1. Turn off the Xbox One console by pressing the Xbox button on the front of the console for about 10 seconds until it shuts down completely.
    2. Unplug the console’s power cable. Wait 10 seconds. Important Be sure to wait 10 seconds. This step resets the power supply.
    3. Plug the console power cable back in.
    4. Press the Xbox button on your console to turn on the Xbox One.

    How to power cycle your PS4 console
    1. Touch the power button on the front of the PS4 for at least 7 seconds (until the system beeps twice).
    2. Turn it back on after 1 minute. Launch the game.

  • Hello EA. I took a picture of these two plays for online play because for the past couple of games online..i have played people who use the Arizona Cardinals and all they do is spam these plays, run to the right and throw deep to DeAndre Hopkins and they score a touchdown every time. Its truly annoying because these plays cant be stopped no matter what defense I call. I can try to blitz a DB and or multiple DBs to Kyler's right side, out of a Dime Defense (where he is right handed so he cant throw from that side obviously) and the person that I'm playing is still able to get the play off because he or she max protects to that side every time. I think these plays are spam plays and it's annoying. These maybe the spam plays for the Cardinals. This is why I made the suggestion about a year ago that EA needs to limit and maybe even put a lock label on the amount of times someone can call plays like these over and over again because people are going to try to continue to manipulate and break the game. Its truly annoying. Spamming the game, ruins the fun of actually playing it and im on the verge of never playing this again if y'all dont fix this issue...

    Use Cover 4 Quarters and consider blitzing the left DB. Since they're all running to the right side of the field you don't have to worry about the pass going out that way. You also have the DB blitzing the left side if he decides to scramble that way.

    Put your right DE on QB Spy.

    Take control of one of the linebackers. to cover the middle and right side of the field. I like to pretend like I'm blitzing the right side and then pull back when the ball is hiked hoping he will throw a quick dart near the middle of the field to intercept it.
