Yes to the first. Unsure about the second, but I would imagine any generated player with the trait will have the same effect.

Is it fair to call this bungling, and is it fair to note that Madden patches tend to have these sorts of significant, negative, unintended consequences?

It's fair to call it an unfortunate bug, since that's what it is. (saw it in my game last night).

When you work on a game as massive as Madden - or any AAA game - sometimes a code change has unintended consequences. It's unfortunate, and hopefully it gets fixed. To call it incompetence misunderstands the incredibly aggressive professional environment of game development.

I've been on the other side of stuff like this plenty of times. It really sucks because the games I've worked on quite obviously goes through thorough QA before any update goes live, but for whatever reason a new bug doesn't get caught until users get their hands on it. It happens.

Not at all. Ground-level QA personnel at Tiburon are 365-day independent contractor positions. Unless you successfully work your way up to a higher position such as QA Analyst, which is uncommon, job security isn't a thing.

QA in AAA video games in general is a thankless profession. It isn't glamorous work at all, the people who work in QA are typically overworked and underpaid, and they typically aren't employees so they are paid hourly and don't get things like health insurance or any other traditional employee benefits.

I have owned Madden 18 for 16 weeks; only during 2 1/2 of those, has the offline game actually been playable.
I've owned it since late August and it has been playable in Cloud CFM since the patch where they fixed stats not recording properly for me. All of the other bugs I see nit-picked a lot were not happening all that often, if ever, for me.

I feel like way too many people on this forum nit-pick instead of actually enjoying the game-play. Focusing way too much on bugs that aren't occurring that often. How can you ever hope to enjoy the game when all you do is focus on the negatives?

Since this really only appears to be affecting players with the "brace all" trait, it won't have much impact at all in my Cloud CFM. The CPU doesn't upgrade traits, so unless a player is drafted with that specific version of brace they won't have it. I've only seen it affect a couple players so far.

Thanks, man. I didn't know that. I guess noone is told to just "go play the game" either, right? They probably have assigned tasks relative to the update? So they may never know what the game actually plays like, in its entirety, post patch?

I've even been apart of community staff helping test an MMO's patches and have them flop after being released. We even tested the patches on the test server before playing. But bugs really don't start popping up until the entire population starts playing and all aspects of the game are explored.
