Madden 17 Xbox 360 Draft Champions

★★★★ Novice

I am getting an EA Servers are not available every time when I try Draft Champions.  This has been happening for the past few days.  Any ideas on the problem?

After doing some digging into this, I'm afraid to say the online features for that specific game mode have been disabled. These decisions are never easy to do and to find out more information on the reasoning behind that, the official policy can be found here.

 

We are in the process of updating the page to accurately reflect Madden 17 & 18 Champions on there, so we are glad you raised it to our attention.

Hey, @dshipes!

Have you tried rebooting your network? (unplug the modem/router for about 5 minutes)

 

The servers should be available. We have troubleshooting steps for Xbox 360 here.

Blueberry..I have done that.

 

i have made sure all ports are open and have tested in two different locations with the same result.

 

other MUT modes work fine.  It's just Draft Champions Solo.

 

I do have an open case now and they told me to transfer the license and redownload.  I'm going to try that and will report back.

 

thanks for your response.

I have the same problem with play station.  I contacted ea technical service, tried everything they suggested but still get the servers not available message.  They have done something on their end that screwed up draft champions.  Mine has been working fine fir last 2 years, but not now

This is disappointing news.  What happened to 30 days notice?  While I wasn't actively playing this game I still have a few unobtainable achievements in MUT and Draft Champions.  Could we get a stay of execution on these servers?

The other day it says here it would be up till July 1, 2019, but now its changed like it was closed since July 1, 2017 which is less than a year since the games release would have been.

The other thing is the Madden 17 Xbox one draft champions still works so shouldn't the 360 version still be working?

Izzy,

 

You are out of luck.  Draft Champions is shut down at this point.

 

Sorry!
