Hmm, good thinking.
in the 2017 year, I had a player retire who was on the block and I think I left him there. no issues during that draft. I kinda thought it odd at the time that I could leave him on there...
in the 2018 year, my retired players was not on the block, and I currently I don't have any retirees on the block and it crashes.
So, based on my experience that isn't the issue but I don't remember much about that first year where my retiree was on the block. I can also confirm that no other team has a retired player on their block when it crashes.
I had retired players on my trading block. Entering the draft immediately and repeatedly crashes the game on my PS4; the resultant error code is CE-34878-0.
Based on also browsing reddit it seems like this is an issue for both platforms and effects many people:
I've tried doing some of my own troubleshooting, changing up different things prior to the draft (trading players, changing the trading block, doing a team meeting, changing finances/budgets) but to no avail. However, I noticed that there is another way my game also crashes. On the day before the draft I can go into the Activity page in franchise, but when I go to the Activity page on the day of the draft it crashes much the same way as if I had tried to start the draft.
Anyone else also have that occur?
I'm quite fed up with the lack of response on EA's behalf on this issue. I have sent another email requesting some sort of feedback or at least acknowledgement of the issue, but based on the last couple of weeks I am not expecting much...
I'm having pretty much the same problem as reported in the original post.
* XBox One
* NHL 17 - Franchise Mode
* 2nd Season (My club just relocated during the off-season)
* Game consistently crashes to the XBox One home screen upon trying to start the Entry Draft
It should be noted that I have another Franchise mode in progress, and it did not have the same problem, even though I also relocated them after the first year. So either the problem is intermittent, or it only happens under specific conditions (which I have not yet been able to determine).
Yup.. EA does not care, id be sinking 5 hours a day into franchise mode and entry drafts.. sadly i cant even do * after remaking 5 franchises, thanks ea!
As a person with atleast 15 EA games since 2010, I will no longer buy EA games besides 1 Hockey per year,
