FIFA 13 glitch and crash timeline ridicules quality control
Just yesterday we learned of the issues that have bombarded FIFA 13 players and with no fix in site it’s understandable that fans are feeling a little disappointed with EA. The situation is much worse when you take a look at a glitch and crash timeline, because it’s clear to see that EA’s quality control has come into question.
On the outside it would seem that EA will not let anything get in their way when it comes to releasing a new FIFA title in September each year, and the list of complaints seems to bolster that view. Even before FIFA 13 was released there were several issues in the build-up – surely this should have set off a few alarm bells?
It’s a shame really because this is the biggest FIFA launch ever with more than 5 million copies been sold so far, so how come things have got this bad? Okay, we can understand that there will always be issues with a new title (just as it was with FIFA 12) but the list of complaints is on a much larger scale than ever.
Things started going bad for FIFA 13 on September 19th when EA launched Ultimate Team web app because some users managed to find an exploit, as a result the service had to be taken down on the 20th for a day. Then a day later Season Ticket pass holders were able to get hold of the game early, which is when the first reports of freezing begun.
Then on September 25th (the official US launch day) complaints of the game freezing explodes, as well as the PC version crashing as well, four days later FIFA points has issues with them not being credited correctly. Just a day later users started to share ideas on how to resolve the crashing issue, but this only works for some. The thing that has baffled us is why EA has yet to comment on this barrage of problems and has been left down to the fans to try and come up with some sort of resolution for now.
Do you believe that these latest issues are as bad as made out, although it’s hard to ignore the number of issues that have hindered the game before and after its release?
