  1. Wait so I just signed on again and it said servers are down. But if I delete the game and reinstall again it will work? I wasnt having any issues getting on after downloading the patch. Why do I have them now?

    That's what I got from reading that. Like you, I had been paying since downloading the patch without issue till last night.

    What are the down sides to clearing reserved space (Xbox One workaround)? Do I lose any saves doing that?

    No - you will not lose any saved files by clearing the reserved space.

    Just did it for ps4 and it worked. No lost data

    Wish I would have known last nite before I went to bed. Now I’m stuck on my day off hoping it downloads quicker than expected.
    Wow. I didn’t think this would work. Lol. But, I can confirm that the Xbox workaround def worked for me. . Back in so I can rage over losing to BS in AM.

    This is straight garbage. I’ve gotten hit with the same error AFTER doing the work around. EA is the absolute worst, we are 3 months into Madden 21 and we have had so much down time for CFM
