Were you and your friend able to get the CFM back up and running or does it still freeze up? There was an update this week and curious as to if that had a positive effect on addressing this for you. I'm really sorry to hear what happened to you both though and hope you weren't too far into many seasons, I know a lot of time can be put into them.

Madden NFL 20 Online Franchise Not Advancing/Locked Options

Product: Madden NFL 20

Summarize your bug In my Franchise the following options are locked: - View Weekly Awards - Players ready to Negotiate - Scout College Players Also, when I press ready to advance it says "Please Wait..." then it just stops there. It never advances. These options are locked for all the league members as well.
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I'm not sure how you can find the bug yourselves, I'm in the 2nd year of my franchise and it occurred.
What happens when the bug occurs? The Options listed above in "Summarize your bug" occur, as well as when you press ready to advance, it just says "Please Wait..." and nothing happens. Even when you press Force Advance nothing happens. The game animations keep going, but you can't move around the menus at all anymore in the mode. Have to restart the game to be able to do anything.
What do you expect to see? The week to advance immediately, and the options to not be locked.

Not sure why the image is rotated like that, but it shows the locked options.

Summarize your bug In my online franchise league we’ve run into a problem where the game gets stuck loading when trying to advance the league, no matter how many times i’ve tried the game will say please wait and my controls will be frozen even though the game is not actually frozen so i have to close the application.

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Use franchise mode
What happens when the bug occurs? “ Please wait” is presented in a white box on the bottom right of the screen this is when you lose control and the league does not advance
What do you expect to see? It fixed

Pictures to show that once you advance a text saying “please wait” pops up on the bottom right. This is when you lose all control and need to close the application.

I’m having a similar issue on Xbox one, did you ever get this resolved?

Cannot advance week in CFM

★★★★ Novice

Solo league, playing on cloud save file. In my second year, finished weeks one, two, and three of the regular season. Come week four, it shows I’m supposed to have a game, but there is no option to play any game or to advance. Just “View Weekly Awards” or “Improve Team”. Cannot advance or force win in the scheduling menu. Companion mobile app says the league is simming ahead and to check back later.

 

So, basically, a lot of time gone down then drain.

At this point, I have basically given up hope that my cloud save can be fixed, even though I'd think someone with EA could easily search up my franchise name and correct the issue. And because cloud franchises cannot be backed up in any way, that is the only save file.

 

It's so disappointing that I don't even want to create another cloud franchise, because it could happen again at any moment. But, then, if I start all over again as an offline franchise (with a couple of my own backup save files)...will my franchise mode still receive the same updates? Or will all the features, player likenesses, etc. be locked to how everything was when I first started the offline franchise?

 

Man...SO disappointing.
