Per the update note on console, pressing the home button means an automatic forfeit.

I think it may take a bit to get used to - see me accidentally quitting a bunch of games by accident this weekend! :lol:

RIP saving replays!

    Sorry I think I'm a little out of the loop here.

    Pressing the home button AT ALL during a game forces you to dc?

    Is this deliberate?

    Totally agree with you. The accidental "let's save the great goal" (or BS goal) is going to take a bit of getting used to.

    Might have to pull out the Kinect!

    The scenes when your 4-0 up to Clinch T100 and you drop your controller

    Yeah mate. Before this update you had 10 seconds. Now, you instant forfeit.

    I often press the home button without even thinking to join a party, the fact you can’t even press the home button for 1 second to do that is stupid. Surely they can fix it another way, whatever they done last year?

    Yeah ... 10 secs was just enough to record something - not the normal X, but wanting to record 1 minute for example.

    na, because as long as you can open the menus there probably other ways of creating other glitches. this may have been the only option to get rid of it for good going forward.

    That is absolutely crazy. I use the home button for a whole host of things while playing games; party invites, recording etc.

    Honestly, EA are absolutely buffoons if they can't fix errors in their own code. No other game has anything like this level of incompetence. I mean, seriously - pressing the Home button forfeits your game. Wow.

    Is there any other way to record goals with using a recording device?

    On XBox you use Cortana and voice commands, but I can't seem to get it to work.

    Just do it afterwards at Highlights. At a high scoring game you might be unlucky as there’re not all goals in it tough.

    I record so many clips, I’m going to get loads of D/C’s this weekend because of recording without thinking. So ❤️❤️❤️❤️ stupid.

    But those recordings are not the same angles as when I play? Never used them much at all before.

    Recording from highlights doesn't always capture what you want. In game is best.

    This sucks!

    Great move EA, I can see many cheaters are already frustrated that they will actually have to get good now

    Yeah but sometimes miss hears you and loads up something else this will then cost you games. It’s just lazy on there part

    I think I have a Kinect somewhere down in the basement. Not been used for years. :joy:

    I do agree the less cheaters the better, they don't deserve their wins if they have to stoop to those levels to get them, but at the risk of costing games for normal folk who sometimes use the Home button for other commands, it's utterly ridiculous. Why should everyone suffer because of other players' cheating.

    So unless you have kinect you cant record the weird things that go on?!
    Must have surely been another way to prevent no loss. Very clever EA.

    Agree. Alienate/pi$$ off the majority of their user base by implementing this.

    At times you've really got to wonder what type of sledgehammer approach they take to coding/dev. Flabbergasts me!
