FIFA 18: There’s a new ‘no-loss’ glitch that’s ruining players’ lives

Fans are kicking off on the EA Support forums

FIFA 18 fans are complaining the infamous ‘no loss’ glitch has returned to the game.

One user, i-zez7, claims even though a player ‘rage quit’ a match because they were losing, the game did not register or record the defeat.

He wrote: “Today I faced someone with username P-R-O_100 and won win comfortably 2-0 before he rage quit in the 60th minute

“It is not possible he should had have 35 wins and 4 remaining…”

He continued: “Messaged him to tell him I am about to report him and he said he doesn’t know what happened.

“He thought I backed out… why would I ? I was winning 2-0.

“After some hours i saw on twitter a post from a pro player @nycom5 with the exact same story ,won him and he had 37 wins and 3 remaining.”

It’s not the only incident, either.

Another gamer wrote: “I received a DNF (did not finish) yesterday for a game I was winning.

“My opponent paused the game twice in a row. I don’t know what he did but the game crashed right after that. I had to restart the game and when I got back to UT I received a DNF.”

Somebody else wrote: “Some one did it to me. In the 120th minute of a fut champs game as I won a penalty he quit and I didn’t get the win. I have recorded it as well. If anyone wants proof.”

FIFA 17 was known for having a no-loss glitch – albeit a slightly different one.

If a match was forfeited before kick off the game did not register this as a loss.

Given that a patch has just been released, it may be some time before EA resolves the issue.

It follows reports of a bug that is causing Career Mode to crash.

The glitch, which was spotted by forum member Bokata, results in a crash when players try to start a match with newly transferred players in their squad.

Instead of loading the match, the game pings the user an error message before quitting to the PS4 or Xbox One homescreen, or to the desktop for PC gamers.

EA is yet to reveal whether they are doing anything about the bug, although we think it’s likely top be addressed in the coming days.
