Cheating in overdrive

★★★★ Novice

So lately when I play overdrive, I can activate one or two coaching tactics, then the menu freezes.  I have plenty of power but none of the tactics highlight so I can activate them.  Is this a glitch or a new form of cheating?  Pls investigate.

@SyndicatE1424 That's not true, the mundane reality is that this is a bug, and we're looking into it. 

@Jmaggi As mentioned, it's a glitch. From my testing it's a timing issue, and can trigger if you hit the tactic just at the moment you gain the OD point. So if you're waiting to activate a 5 point tactic, please just wait a beat after you hit the 5 points.

This is how they "pre determine" winners. If the game wants you to lose, bbn it will try everything in its power to make you lose

 They will say there are no predetermined winners, but this will happen if you have won too much and need to be brought back down.it so everyone gets a chance to win based nothing on skill. They take away your ability to win.

Thanks for the input.  @SyndicatE1424 is right though...overdrive is completely rigged and there is nothing you can say to make me think otherwise.

With all of the issues in overdrive, especially when it comes to time and timing, "waiting a beat" seems a bit much and will cost you already scarce, valuable time. This is definitely something we should not have to do considering how the clock never stops and everything else.
