Opponent's pause glitching you? SOLUTION

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

What's up everybody? So here in the past couple weeks I've been walking away with the W to have my opponent pause the game without the 30 sec clock starting it's countdown. Contacted EA and they claim this is called a pause glitch. Well it looks like I found a way to start the clock, if you notice the clock isent counting down go to the far right of the pause menu and select Accessibility,. As soon as the weird automative voice finish's talking back out to the main pause menu. When you back out to the main pause screen it causes an automatic refresh and your clock will start it's countdown from 30 and kick you both back to the game. It has worked Everytime I've done it. As soon as we're back In the game my opponent quits.

GLITCH IN PAUSE MENU

★★ Newbie

Product: Madden NFL 20
Platform:Microsoft XBOX One
Which console generation do you have? XBOX One
What is your gamertag/PSN ID? Monkeyhuevos12
Date/time issue occurred 3/12/20 9:20AM - 10:00AM (still on going)
What type of issue do you have? Crash/Freeze
Which mode has this happened in? Ultimate Team
Which part of the mode? Seasons
Summarize your bug I am currently playing versus user OBONZ on seasons. We are in the 4th quarter with 1:51 remaining till the end. I am winning 21-0 and my opponent has paused the gaming and won't unpause the game. There is no timer for the pause so we have been in the pause menu for about 45 minutes and counting. The game is still currently paused and I can't do anything other than wait or forfeit the match. This is not fair why I would have to lose just to play this game.
How often does the bug occur? Rarely (0% - 9%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? It's currently happening right now. Current Madden 20 match. Monkeyhuevos12 vs OBONZ. I also reported this on Xbox One.
What happens when the bug occurs? No timer on the pause menu.
What do you expect to see? A timer so we can continue playing fairly.
PS4 Crash Reporting: Please copy the text you put in the crash report here.
What is the AMD or Nvidia Model Number of your graphics card?
Enter RAM memory size in GB

Please help now.

Madden 20 pause glitch

I’m done with this ea. This guy is not only a hardcore pay to win who buys coins off sketchy websites but now I’m up 20-0 in a game that could send me to the playoffs and he just pauses it... and guess what... I can’t resume it! Please ban [Removed - CM] on Xbox for handing me a loss. I’ve been sitting here for 45 minutes and you guys are enabling it. This is ridiculous.

The team is aware of this. OP provided a possible workaround if you unfortunately come across it again. I removed the Gamertag you reported as naming and shaming is against the forum rules here, nor does our forum team investigate these reports. We have a special team trained to do that, please report players via this method: https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/faq/report-players-for-cheating-abuse-and-harassment/

 

Thank you for your help keeping the game fair for everyone.
