We have identified and fixed the bug causing the game to crash when editing rosters. This bug also causes teams to disappear and team ratings to change.

The patch is being tested tonight, and assuming all goes well it will be submitted tomorrow for certification. The expected release is in 5-10 days.

Until the patch, we recommend you cease editing rosters. Rosters that have been corrupted by the bug will not work after the patch. If you have a roster in progress and have not encountered any freezes or missing teams, it will work after the patch. There is a possibility a roster can be corrupt and not have surfaced any problems yet. This is why we recommend that you stop or back up your work among multiple save files.

We are also fixing the bug where the depth chart gets reordered after editing a player with this patch.

These are the ONLY fixes in this patch. We are planning on a 2nd patch with many fixes, but we had to get this one out the door.

We appreciate everyone's patience on this matter.

Special thanks to CDJ, 21SEC, and Fairdale Kings for helping us track this down.

Great news! Especially about the second patch with additional fixes.

Great news! I'll deal with the gameplay issues until a second patch is ready and well-tested as long as the rosters are no longer an issue!

Adam (and EA), thank you for addressing this promptly and for keeping us in the loop. While the roster bug did suck and is gonna keep some dynasties on hold, we do appreciate you getting this remedied as quickly as possible.

Its also good news to hear a 2nd patch is being considered. Just a quick question, it had been stated before that the first patch is free the second cost money (on the developer side), is that the case in this scenario?

Thanks Adam!
