Today EA has released a Madden NFL 18 Update to address the variety of issues caused by this week’s Madden 18 Title Update. Removing fixes that caused instability in Franchise mode and two gameplay-specific additions to dropped passes and user banners.

The “Low Catch Rating” and “Catch in Traffic” user notification banners that were added had unintended issues leading to confusion for our players, so those have been removed, and will be revisited in an upcoming update when we can iron out all the issues our community uncovered.

The Madden Development Team takes pride in delivering the best possible experience to all of our community members. We want to take this opportunity to let you know we will continue to work to improve your experience and listen to your feedback. Thank you for giving us such quick feedback as valued Madden players.

Here’s a list of everything included in today’s title update:

Reverted attempted fix for lag in Franchise mode to in order to fix Franchise crashes
Fixed a crash some users were experiencing in Franchise when navigating menus very quickly
Reverted tuning change to “Nearby Player” catching penalty to reduce the number of dropped passes
Reverted “Low Catch Rating” and “Catch in Traffic” user notification banners
Addressed Madden Ultimate Team (MUT) Auction House filters resetting after making a bid on an item
