Bugs and glitches

Prev1345
Some of the bugs and glitches that I have come across.

1) Playing offline multiplayer when someone on you team catches the ball or it is swated into the air, all other user controlled players freeze. This prevents you from going after tips or even setting a block for your team mate.

2) Fumbles that nobody can pick up. Was playing a game last night with my friend. Qb fumbled and nobody could pick the ball up. It was kicked around from about the 10 yard line to midfield. Then a group of players gathered around the ball and could not pick it up for like 30-45 seconds.

3) Jesus formation. Everyone lines up with their arms in the air.

4) Offense playing defense and vise versa. When theres a change of possession, if there is a hurry up it puts whoever was on the field prior to it.

5) Fantasy draft. The ratings reset after 7 rounds. This leads to it always saying there is a reach.

6) Draft classes in franchise. When scouting someone, sometime it bugs out and if you quick scout with square (PS4) or x (Xbox) it does not show you their grade.

Any other bugs or glitches you come across please comment!
I will try to get video of some of the stuff I have said.

    If you could post a video of these things happening, that would be great! Thanks.
  • Fantasy draft rankings also need redone. Antonio Brown drops to the 2nd round and is usually considered overreaching. Had a fantasy draft where LeSean McCoy went undrafted.

    Jesus Man happens at 12:20 ish in the video 12:20-12:30
  • *Intentional grounding doesn't work. (this has been an issue for at least 3 years)
    *Hail Mary Trips is a suggested play for 1st and Goal from the 2.
    *At half time, you sometimes switch end zones, sometimes you don't.
    *Every turnover returned for a TD causes you to switch end zones.
    *Sometimes box score doesn't work properly. For example, one time at the beginning for the 4th it was 17-0, I had scored 7 in the 1st and 7 in the 2nd. I also had a FG in the 3rd, but it said 0.
    *If you fumble a ball in the last 2 minutes of a half, all timeouts disappear, sometimes.
    *If you restart an MUT Solo Challenge, neither team has timeouts.
    *Sometimes the ball can bounce twice on a forward pass and be picked up and considered a complete catch.
    *The referees signal a touchback on most kickoffs and punts, regardless of if there is a touchback or not (this was an issue last year too)
    *On kickoff and punt returns the AI player will catch the ball and wait one second before moving.
    *On tipped passes, the offensive players tend to run away from the ball, while the defensive players all huddle in one area and continue to swat the ball. (sort of like Zach's #1)
    *Zach's #2 point about kicking fumbles 10-30 yards down the field and no one picking them up.
    *Drive stats are often wrong. One time I scored a TD on -4 plays for -13 yards. Another time, I scored a TD with 0:-4 yards (whatever that means). Also, very often when my QB comes onto the field, it says in my last drive that he had 37458 completions of 37458 attempts for 37458 yards on the last drive.
    *Graphics for snow still don't work well. You leave footprints, but if you roll on the ground, there are no marks, except wherever your feet would've been had they been on the ground.
    *People often line up inside each other on Defense.
    *As long as you tap 'X' when catching the ball, it usually doesn't matter if your feet actually land inbounds or not. As long as you use the mechanic and you're somewhat close, that counts.
    *Pass interference penalties aren't called when there's pass interference.
    *AI for defensive players is pretty bad, if they see the QB scrambling, they just stand there, guarding no one, until he's 5 yards past the line of scrimmage, then they go after him.
    *Announcers sometimes seem to be watching another game. Example, opening drive, I scored a TD. My next drive, the announcers say, the last 2 drives ended in an interception. Well, there was only one drive and it ended in a TD.
    *Some drive goals make no sense. Playing as the Browns, I get "Have Duke Johnson rush for his first career NFL TD". He got his first rushing TD in 2016 and had 4 in 2017, so I really can't get his first *career* TD unless we time travel.

    The new mechanics, such as running, work absolutely awesome, I'm a big fan of the improvements made. However, there are many bugs from last year still and things that were fixed in 18 from 17 that are back. I'm sure there are more that I've found that I'll add to this thread. @NatureBoy2323 , do you want video/pictures of all of these? I will try to get them next time they happen. I don't mean to be unpleasant with these, but some of us spend a lot of money on this game and I think everyone (even those people who don't spend money on microtransactions) deserve a game that's loyal to the NFL and the laws of physics. Maybe EA simply isn't aware of these bugs, so I'm hoping this will help.

    Thanks for making this thread!
  • @NatureBoy2323 , is there a thread or a forum where you keep known bugs? I'd like to be able to post there. Also, not waste my time getting screenshots or videos of issues that EA is already aware of. The last thing you need is people complaining about things that you know about and are fixing (or know about and decided not to work on). I don't want to be over the top, but as someone who work in quality control, I also hate when my users don't tell me about issues in the program until it's been a problem for an extended period of time.
  • A couple more:

    *When I'm running the ball, if the offensive lineman has no one to block, he'll strafe in front of me to prevent me from running in the open gap.
    *Sometimes the game plays by college rules for being down, usually on turnovers. If your knee hits the ground, even if there was no contact, the play is over. This especially happens on fumbles, and sometimes the knee isn't even down, they just bend over, pick up the fumble, and the play ends (almost always on sack fumbles). This was an issue last year as well.
  • I would also like to see a patch for 4k and HDR. Im playing on my 4k tv right now, and it is no where as smooth as 18 was.
  • I just bought madden 19 and am having issues with subbing in players. I also have Barkley on my roster but I cannot put him in the game. I have tried to get help from support but none of the troubleshooting steps helped. Anyone else having these problems
  • Please tell me "No arrow" on all-madden is a glitch they can fix.
  • I have a problem where it keeps asking about active controller until I get in a game I am on pc btw
  • custom playbooks (pc) - formations dont show up when scrolling through playbook in game. audibles/plays added don't save for those formations. same issue it's been since 16 or 17.. -_- (im on pc.. dunno if it works for xbox/ps4)
  • Camera toggle...omg I've turned this off over and over and it will stay off for a few games then turn itself back on..... any help with this?
  • The KICKING ARC SHOULD BE OPTIONAL. PLEASE ADD KICK ARC BACK FOR ALL MADDEN.
  • Here are some major bugs I found in franchise mode (PS4).

    1. When you get notification to resign a player and select revoke contract the game crashes and says you lost the EA network connection. You then can log back in and the game took your request but this happens every time I select this option.
    2. I like to slow auto play the defense sometimes and I have noticed that you cannot exit out of the slow auto play without the game breaking. The game simply shows "exiting" but never exits and the play clock runs to zero causing a penalty and still no action happens on the screen. You are just stuck like this and have to hard close the game in order to play again.
    3. Not sure if this is a bug or design decision but you no longer have an option for using skill points(use to be XP) for your team but instead you must click each player individually. There use to be an option under the team menu to spend xp so you didn't have to manual find each player that can be updated.

    Hope some of these get fixed soon.
  • *Camera Angle at heinz field shows's the wrong scoreboard sometimes with the metal bar in front of the screen going across the screen and its way to zoomed in.

    *Rookie Gauntlet Run play for from the 4 yard line and 8 yard in MUT. Brandon Gaudin tells me I'm on the 10 yard line

    *PC has a Serious memory leak problem that needs to be addressed asap.
    CPU will reach 50-60% then later 70-80% then will eventually fail to even come back to the menu screen from in the game. I've got 6700k CPU with a GTX 1080 and m.2 drive.

    *PC is going to need its own individualized updates.
  • A lot of commentary issues. One, the commentator calls my RB the wrong name. Another, notice how the during a dropped pass the commentator will 1st say complete then act like he said it was incomplete.

    Hay EA, when you skip the halftime show stop saying that we are. "I guess these guys want to play, no halftime show" or something cheap like that. We're just FF past the halftime show.
  • I play a game called F13. This game has more bugs than a game that has been temp abandoned by it's developers.
  • Has anyone experienced any major bugs/ glitches in Madden 19?
  • Here's a major Bug! In most running plays the center gets stuck in his down position and fails to block. If anyone else is experiencing this issue please reply. Thanks!
