Disconnected for "moving focus from the game"

This has happened twice to me during FUT online games in the past couple of days. No idea what's causing it. I am using a PS4 controller with DS4Windows in the system tray; all else that has been open whilst playing has been file explorer and the game launcher, and I've been playing in windowed mode. Anyone got any suggestions to prevent this from happening?

    If you are using Windows 10, use focus assist

    Yeah I've had it happen in all three display modes now. I'll disable my antivirus and see if that works. If not then I am clueless.

    Everyone is having this issue since the latest patch. @EA_Andy, is it possible to look into it?

    +1, honestly it's unacceptable in 2019, I can play any other game without worrying about it.

    It was somewhat stable in fifa 19 in windowed mode, but it's crazy now, I lost 4-5 games in two days. With previous fifa games I could usually see the "reason", like a popup on screen, but this time there is literally nothing going on.

    I have focus assist, windowed mode, everything disabled in origin (thanks EA), no other apps open... Still losing focus.

    Just remove this from the game, cheaters can block this Alt + Tab DC anyway so it's all pointless

    Indeed... Couldn't EA just remove it and then see if cheating gets out of hand?
  • Same happens to me in every 1st game (then I can play fine). I think if I do it myself (alt+tab) before entering a match, then sometimes it doesn't happen. I don't have anything in system tray, use focus assist, disabled origin in game and etc. I am 100% sure that there's no external notification, the game just minimizes itself for whatever reason, and only does it once. Since it is 100% reproducible on my PC (and doesn't happen after happening for the first time) I am pretty sure this is just a bug.

    Also +1 for just removing this feature. It protects none, it is trivially to bypass this, if this is considered an anti-cheat measure,

    Honestly, just go and get the cheat engine script that disables it. The only people this feature hurts are legit users, all cheaters have it disabled.
  • Is there already a solution for this? I have been playing fifa 20 without problems, but now my screen suddenly starts making itself smaller while playing the game resulting in changing focus from game so I get disconnected. I didn’t do anything, it just happened random and it keeps happening for some reason. Please help cause I can’t play anymore now??

    Use the cheat that enables ALT + TAB.
    Best and easiest solution.
  • I'm having the same problem. Not exclusively to Fifa 20 though. BFV is having the same issue. Seems like it's Origin that's causing the problem. I've noticed it fighting for focus even when watching Netflix in full screen, Origin app would flash on screen for a brief second and disappear. I did some digging, but so far no solution is found.
