EA have dropped the ball. If you logged into Madden NFL 23 throughout not less than a 22-hour interval final week, there is a good probability your Connected Franchise Mode saves have been completely corrupted. If that wasn’t galling sufficient, the corrupting interval (from Wednesday December twenty eighth to Thursday twenty ninth) got here instantly after EA gave folks the go forward to log in.
EA have mentioned they count on to get well 40% of the saves, the wallies.
The points truly started round Monday December twenty sixth, when EA first tweeted they have been “conscious of gamers experiencing connection points when attempting to hook up with CFM.” On Wednesday they mentioned “customers ought to now be capable to play CFM with out situation”, however no, no they might not.
Last Saturday EA confirmed they’d messed up, saying that “if you happen to logged into Franchise leagues throughout this time, your information was affected due to a knowledge storage situation that resulted in Franchise recordsdata being corrupted”, and that the crew have been “projecting round 40% of leagues to be recovered”. Their put up additionally says you possibly can log in safely for realsies, this time. I can not see anybody on Reddit reporting additional corruptions, so that you’re in all probability high-quality?
The actual ball-ache is that we’re speaking about Franchise saves, which implies some individuals who’ve had multiplayer inter-Madden leagues on the go for years now have to start out once more. It’s not simply shedding a save file, for these folks – it is shedding a shared piece of communal historical past. I’m gutted for ’em.
