QB1 Mode Bug

★★ Newbie

On QB1 mode I have maxed out 3 out of the 4 traits (I guess ill call them) I have 4 skill points but unable to upgrade? I have no idea if its a bug or its maxed out but my other 3 traits have locks next to them and the last one is a 96 but no lock next to it, any ideas on how to fix or is this a bug?

I’ve had this problem since last year i don’t see no way around it unless they drop a new update or change the progression system

Hey, @estepea 

 

Does this workaround from Madden 19 fix it for you?

How is changing our position going to work when we are playing the game mode where you can only be a quarterback. I've stopped playing the game completely because of this. You would think a game developer would fix a bug that has been in the game for over a year for the new release but nope.

That was definitely a mental lapse there. We've seen that issue in Franchise mode so from past reports I defaulted there. When I followed up on this previously it indicates the area you're trying to upgrade is maxed out and it's a UI issue. If you regress you should be able to add points again. 

We'll make sure the team is aware of this happening in QB1 though, thank you for reaching out and our apologies for the confusion!
