Question about alt+tab DNF issue and such

Obviously there are lots of topics concerning this issue, but I'd like someone to explain in details what is going and how to avoid it. I'm specifically interested in possible workarounds, could someone answer:


1. Does it happen when in fullscreen/windowed/both?
2. Disabling Origin overlay - does it help?
3. Opening a chat window before starting FIFA to avoid getting a pop-up when messaged - does it work?
4. Any other workarounds that work?
5. Does it only apply to FUT, or to other online gamemodes (Seasons, Clubs) too?

I'd love to get some answers, gonna play FIFA soon and don't want to get disconnected loads of times before I figure out how to fix it myself :)

    You don't want to get 11 losses because of different game issues like me ? :)

    While still using fullscreen? So now I can message you on Origin when you're playing a match and nothing bad will happen?

    I did and nothing happened I guess, I don't think you saw my message either.

    Another question: when you alt+tab during the game, do you get immediate disconnect? And another one, is there anyone who doesn't experience these issues? I remember in the beginning of FUT 16 lots of players had some disconnects after the game if they were tabbing out during the match - I was lucky and it didn't concern me at all

    when you alt+tab during the game, do you get immediate disconnect?

    Hard to say, once I switched tabs to select an other playlist in Spotify, nothing happened.
    Other time I had a notification and it kicked me out.

    So uhm ... Yeah

    This sounds ridiculous. Alt+tab is a function of any windows based application and should not have any effect on the gameplay which should just continue regardless of a player switching to desktop or other application. If it affects the gamplay it's a bug and should be submitted as such. I don't get it why people on these forums agree with such crap to begin with.

    Ok, I pop into the PC forums and I find issues with alt-tabbing.
    Seriously, first No Man's Sky, now this? :joy:
    Must be a remnant of the console port or something.
    Notifications shouldn't cause me trouble, I rarely ever have them, and I don't think they cause the game to pop out of fullscreen.
    So alt-tabbing during an online FUT match causes this?
    So if I alt-tab out for a second at half time, I disconnect and lose the match?

    Sadly, this is absolutely what happens :(
