EA have dropped the ball. If you happen to logged into Madden NFL 23 throughout at the least a 22-hour interval final week, there is a good likelihood your Related 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.

The problems 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 have the ability to play CFM with out situation”, however no, no they might not.
Final Saturday EA confirmed they’d tousled, saying that “for those who logged into Franchise leagues throughout this time, your knowledge was affected due to a knowledge storage situation that resulted in Franchise information being corrupted”, and that the crew have been “projecting round 40% of leagues to be recovered”.
