i read on another forum that removing visuals should solve the issue...

 

EDIT (for visibility reasons): the suggested workaround is: >>> If you are experiencing issues with disconnects when attempting to play the Rookie Premiere challenges, please remove your Team Visuals under the Team Visuals Tab in game. <<<

@lindros2018 do you mean the Rookie Premiere Endorsement challenges or the "normal" Rookie Premiere challenges? if it is the former, you have to quicksell an item from a "promo welcome" pack to get the first Solo unlocked. if you did not receive this pack due to the crash, you might have to contact EA Help (see contact details below). they are able to track your account and hopefully will grant you the pack if it is missing due to a bug.

if it is the second case, my first guess would be that it is probably a more general (i.e. a more frequently occuring) bug. did you already try to create a new lineup and try to start the challenges again (e.g by using the "generate best OVR" option)? sometimes, there is something corrupted stored in the background of a lineup preventing players from starting Solo Challenges or Solo Battles. if it works, you should be able to rebuild your previous lineup, if you want to do so.

hope that helps. good luck!

ps: by the way, please do not use caps in thread titles! it is against the forum rules because using caps makes it more difficult for other players if they search in the forums. thank you!

To be respectful, I understand requiring endorsements. This is the NORMAL one. And it is crashing out of MUT.

 

I followed the instructions to completely wipe Origin saved files on my PC (local, roaming, Origin, etc.). 

 

Same error.

 

Logged out of Origin, restarted computer, restarted gateway/router/internet, changed network cards.

 

it is *ONLY this part of the game - everything else - INCLUDING endorsement challenge (the one I could do with the "intro" endorsement) - works fine.

Re: Cannot enter Rookie Premiere Challenges

@lindros2018 ok, I'm sorry that my interpretation of your issue was not helpful yet. did you try to create a new lineup too? I faced a very similar bug (with two different error messages when trying to start the first Solo of a new promo while all other Solos worked fine) and for me it worked. so that's why I had guessed that this might be worth a shot for you too...

Yes to lineup - I actually appreciate that idea, but it did not work.

I also created ones with varying prioritization (i.e. Lock Down vs. Run Stop, etc.).

 

No change.

Every other challenge, solos, H2H, etc. all work fine, this is the only thing that doesn’t work and it’s very frustrating
