Franchise cut players

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: Madden NFL 20
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
Which console generation do you have? Playstation 4 Pro
What is your gamertag/PSN ID?
Date/time issue occurred August 22, 11 PM
What type of issue do you have? Gameplay
Which mode has this happened in? Franchise Mode
Which part of the mode? Offline
Summarize your bug I am in my second season of franchise mode. When I simulated from the end of the preseason to week one of the regular season, the game cut 3 of my best players along with some lower players. The game says I have 53/53 players now, but I counted and realized it's actually 48/53. So now I'm out my starting QB, WR, and FS and I'm done with this mode. This is not the first time this issue has occurred, but this was the worst time.
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play through franchise mode and see if it happens.
What happens when the bug occurs? Players are automatically cut from my team, even though I have the right number of players. Bringing my team to a lower number of players than I can play with.
What do you expect to see? I expect to see this, and the other issues fixed in the game. I.e. rookie development traits not unlocking. Some sort of compensation for lost time I put into a franchise mode that screwed me over.

Pretty frustrating that I can't even get a response on this from EA.

Its counting the practice squad players against the 53 man roster, which isn't suppose to happen. EA needs to fix these bugs asap. The game is unplayable otherwise.

Finally, I thought I screwed up in setting up the game. WELL, I've got the same problem. The adjust lineup number on mine, OH, I'm on PS4, shows 52/53, when my active roster count is 53. Now, when I first saw this, I went and looked for a free agent, signed him, all was fine, UNTIL, I advanced to the next week. At that point, cpu said I had too many players and had to cut one. So, I then took a head count of my roster, and it had  players. Next, the counter was showing 54/53, at that time, I had to release, the cpu wouldn't let me play the football game, a player. I restarted Madden, came back into the adjust lineup tab, it now showed, 52/53. OK, with that said, and much frustration, I got into the ea help chat, talked with a person, obviously, others have the same problem, at which time, I was informed the dev team is aware of the problem and will attempt too remedy the bug. So, here we sit, broken hearted, went to *, and only farted. When is the, ummmmm, FIX coming, you're guess is as good as mine.

@Swoosh2355 So, have you tried anything with the practice squad to see if the adjust lineup numbers changed any, for instance, releasing 1 or 2 from the PS?

Yes I cut everyone off the practice squad put people back onto the roster to 53, but for some reason even though my settings have it where only I am suppose to fill the roster or cut players, the CPU is doing it on its own, cutting whoever it wants and putting people back on the ps.

Same here, I released everyone on the ps list. I then went in and added a player to the active roster. After that I started a weekly practice and right off the bat, I got the too many players screen and had too cut 1 and adjust the depth chart. And that's not all, I went back to my active roster and found one of my second string rookies had been cut, that I didn't do. So here's the thing, in this condition, 20 in franchise mode is unplayable. Reason, should during a game a couple of players get hurt for a lengthy period and in order too have a full roster is too sign free agents,  the cpu will not allow us to do so. I'm not sure what version of this piece of crap you have, either way, we got royally screwed. Guess I'll go back too playing 19. What I should do is take 20 out to a shooting range, and blow the hell out of it, take pics and send to ea and tell them where they can stick this. I think we should start a social media event, get more and more frustrated madden 20 players on board and spread a smear campaign to inform people not too buy this. I'm starting on facbook, going over to MEWE, and go from there.
