Welcome to the discussion. Hopefully you understand the point at which the problem is occurring. I can imagine how hard it is because for the most part it doesn't look like a glitch. I hope you have gone back and read my detailed description of the steps to replicate the issue.

Thanks for the fast response. I've been following the thread and I understand what you are encountering, the problem being I can't get it to happen on my accounts. I want to be clear here, we believe you all and we know that you're encountering it. Unfortunately we need to be able to see it on our test setups so we can pull information on what exactly is happening when it occurs and that's the tough bit.

 

Rest assured I'm working on this. I appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions and am confident we'll get this sorted for all of you once I have more info from everyone on which to test with.

The only slider adjustment I've made is lowering injuries to 20 and I am the sole player in this league.

 

The franchise I'm using was started almost on release day.  If you feel it would help, feel free to poke around in my CFM.  League name and password is included.  I'll even provide my gamertag and password if you'd like to try for yourselves.

 

For kicks and giggles, I started a second frachise with the same settings (leaving gameplay sliders completely alone) and simmed to midseason.  I was instantly able to reproduce this issue.  To be clear, all traits are purchasable but the listed price of the trait is inaccurate.   Here's a clear example:

 

Player:  R Foster

Available XP: 6011

Clutch Upgrade: 5625

Difference: 386

Upgrade Cannot be Purchased

 

Available XP: 6011

DL Spin Upgrade: 3937

Difference: 2074

Trait Purchased. 

Remaining XP After Upgrade: 1199

Actual Cost of Upgrade: 2738, ~132% increase.

 

I took screens of this, but they are large, so I'll have to attach in a couple posts.

Update:  Since I'm working from home anyway today, I reinstalled M18 entirely just to see if the issue would resolve itself.

 

But alas!  The issue persists.  On a side note the NFL.com newsfeed is giving me current information as opposed to the same preseason feed I've been seeing for 4 weeks.

@EA_ShadowedSeraphim can you post screenshots to show that you aren’t experiencing this issue? It’s not that I don’t believe you I just want to make sure that you are trying the same thing we are. In order to replicate this.
1. Gather XP
2. Pick any player
3. Go to his purchase traits upgrade page
4. Show us the player’s XP before you buy the trait.
5. Show us the player’s XP after you select the upgrade
6. Show us the player’s XP after you confirm the upgrade with the start/menu button.
7. If your player XP deducts by exactly the amount displayed by the trait upgrade cost then the issue doesn’t exist in your league.
8. But if you are successful with the amount of XP deducted being more than the cost and you aren’t noticing then we will be able to determine that you aren’t noticing the bug on your side

Right. I mean it doesn't seem that is only a handful of people. It is everyone. Guess they don't play their own game?
