I'm having some trouble understanding the bug report. Do you have a recorded clip you could share so we could take a look? There was an event recently where you did not get 4 downs in some game modes, so I feel like that is what you're referring to. For example in House Rules each team began the drive with 1st down and 5 and only have 2 downs to earn a 1st down. Quarter length is down to 3 minutes.
