Giving feedback during the beta

We wanted to share a few best practices to keep in mind when coming across issues or giving feedback in general. Please keep in mind the more detailed information you can provide when reporting issues, the better our team can address them.

Below are some questions to think about when reporting an issue or providing feedback:

  • What platform are you playing on?
  • Where specifically did you see the issue?
    • The following details are extremely important:
      • Game Mode
      • Game Style (Arcade, Simulation, Competitive)
      • Game Difficulty
      • Teams Used
      • Playbook Used
      • Play call – If a specific play is not applicable, what kind of playcall are you seeing? (e.g. Screen, Play Action, Outside Run, Inside Run, etc.)
      • Any adjustments used during the play?
      • If applicable, what buttons did you press?
  • If you’re playing Franchise, are you playing an offline or online Franchise file?
  • Were you doing anything specific in-game? Is this a repeatable issue?
  • What did you do prior to identifying an issue?
