There's a Nasty Madden 18 Disconnect Glitch Going Around

Reports have been trickling out about a new disconnect glitch affecting head to head matches in Madden Ultimate Team. This glitch allows a player to disconnect from the match and either avoid a loss for themselves or actually cause the non-quitting player to take the loss. Obviously, this is greatly influencing the rankings in ranked modes and is robbing good players of well deserved wins.

Some Madden 18 players have uploaded videos to YouTube detailing how to do the glitch and that’s unfortunate. At OperationSports.com, we DO NOT condone use of this exploit. EA is aware of the glitch and are currently working on a solution to the problem. Mike McFadden, @MUTGuru on Twitter, posted that EA was aware of the glitch and monitoring accounts that were using the glitch.

While specific penalties for using the glitch have yet to be announced in detail, rest assured that those using the glitch aren’t getting away with it freely. Cheating is an unfortunate byproduct of online gaming and less scrupulous individuals will always look for an edge. The best thing to do is report any users that are suspected of using this disconnect glitch to EA and let them handle it.

Hopefully this glitch will be fixed quickly and we can all get back to enjoying Madden Ultimate Team. We’ll keep you updated on this story as they occur.

  1. Sheesh. I just don't get people smh.
    Nonetheless, Rex said today that EA is aware of the PS4 disconnect glitch and are investigating the issue. Followed that up saying action is being taken against accounts that are abusing the glitch.
    We'll see how that shakes out.

    I'm genuinely curious how long it takes them to fix this considering it's affecting online play.
    Edit: Nevermind, WOW, I just downloaded patch 1.03. That fast????

    Hmmm... they don't mess around when you messing with their MUT money. lol
    Lol. And when these types of glitches in years past affected non monetary ranked play? Nothing.
    But affecting the income stream? Instant patch.
    Ugly words, bad thoughts, vile stomach chemicals upon EA.

    Let's play Madden or Fifa!
    I have had the occasional disconnect message, but I have gotten the win every time. There was a period back on M15 when it felt like it was 50/50 on who would get the win. Luckily they seemed to have fixed on the XB1 and U have not had an issue for years, including this year.
    Most people actually just concede. I know this bothers some people, but I think in MUT that it is viewed more like chess. Not conceding can feel like you are being trolled by a guy that jut wants to waste your time. I do wish I could look at the box score after a concession, though.
    Were people having problems with getting the loss on disconnections on the XB1, or was it just a PS4 issue?
    Lovely two of my last three matches opponents have resorted to this when I'm leading. Been waiting all week for the roster update to play and now this.
    Lovely - this needs a hot fix it's so rampant. To make matters worse people are barely discussing it.

    It was a hot topic on Twitter yesterday but it seemed like more people were concerned with a bashing and attacking the dude that outted it than anything. It'll get fixed soon because it seems rampant but until it does I would stay away from H2H and online just because it's going to be more and more common as time passes. It sucks but it's the unfortunate nature of glitches like this.

    Absolutely ruined my plans to play this weekend. I'm definitely happy another sports title came out.

    so glad I never got into playing online... and the game is based around it..which I hate. this would of been icing on the cake for me. lol..smh.

    Online play killed franchise mode. For that, I cannot, and will not give it a chance.
    However this right here is the problem I have with Madden... They lean too hard on the online experience, which is fine. Until there are server issues, security breaches, or bad weather (hurricane, snow, rain, ice, etc etc...)

    From what I saw, people were/are attacking him for outing it the way he did, which gave it more publicity than it otherwise may have gotten.

    It's amazing that you turned a totally unrelated topic about online disconnect glitching into yet another franchise thing.

    Unrelated? I think that Madden as a whole has an issue with depending so much on online play. Because of that, it is now affecting the way we play Madden.
    Am I going to use this glitch to point out how the flaws of depending so heavily on online play? Absolutely.
    Online play is great. But when you build the success or failure of a game around its' connection to the internet, you are setting yourself up for failure if you don't build a solid offline foundation first.

    I'd argue the way we play Madden is more dependent on the people you're playing with or against than specifically as a result of online play in general.

    Except this glitch is a byproduct of some players doing anything they can (including outside the lines of sportsmanship) to get a win. Again, that's more on the player's mentality than a specific dependence on online play.

    Okay, but that's not what other people here are talking about. An exploit has been exposed and widely publicized. The developers are aware and will deal with it. That's where it's at for the time being. It's not an online vs offline thing.

    I'm the exact opposite. I keep playing regardless of whether my chances of winning are low. It's great opportunity to practice composure for later games, and I don't want the other person to get the satisfaction of me getting so frustrated that I quit the game either. Some people really get off on players "rage quitting" on them.

    I don't rage quit. I send a PM after saying "gg." Sometimes I add, "You had me." Actually I send a "gg" after neatly every game I play. I think ti is odd more people do not do this.
    Regardless, when I said most people concede, I meant instead of trying to disconnect. Since it has been years distance since a disconnect gave me a loss, I did begin to assume that my opponent just **** his console off is frustration. I don't send a "good game" message if someone disconnects.

    No you're not.
    First, the glitch has nothing to do with relying heavily on online play.
    It is simply a glitch, nothing more, nothing less. It isn't a result of EA's focus on their current game and it in NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM has any affect on what we feel we are lacking in franchise mode. That is an entirely different conversation.
    You've pointed out on numerous occasions that you do not and won't play online, therefore, you have no reason to post in a thread about an online ONLY issue.
    Using this glitch to serve your agenda any further will get you banned, that I can assure you.
    I think it's fixed as I was just messing around for fun as I let the guy I was playing know I was gonna to test it to see if they fixed it
    We tried it like up to 5 times in s row & all 5 times I got the loss & it not once gave me a win or not count game
    We only did this Cuz he was cerious to see if it was fixed as well & after we did the test runs we played a full game & I beat him I'll say this the guy was actually very cool punted on 4th didn't do cheesey stuff & more I wish we had more people like him vs the sore loser low life's who take this game way to seriously type they get on my nurves...
    But to answer y'all question I think it safe to say it has been fixed unless we did it wrong which is unlikely since we both saw the sly video I'm guessing ea fixed it so proceed to gaming as normal good night...
