Why was Volta Squads changed, its literally impossible to find a game?

Can't invite a friend to just play and have the empty spots filled with AI players, have to search online for randoms, then get a full team, then get told we can't find a game, but in 11 separate searches I can find 22 unique players, but can't get a game to start 4v4 .... its currently been 27 minutes of searching and still haven't gotten into a game of Volta Squads

But the mode can get all these gimmicks like power shot and speed boost added as well as the skill bar multiplier (none of which was needed btw) but actually getting into a game is impossible...

    Matchmaking is completely screwy, which is a shame bc I'd be playing a lot more if I could actually find matches.

    It's like you say, players pop into my squad within seconds, but then matchmaking times out and sometimes crashes to the main menu...

    It's almost as if none of the devs gave actually tried playing the game in Volta Squads 🤷‍♂️

    Yeah, tried for 90 minutes last night, 0 games, it would search, put us in with a squad (my friend wouldnt see the other 2 half the time) then it would say no opponents found.

    There was no need to change it from AI players filling the gaps and playing seasons, but EA made the change and now it doesn't work :/
  • Having the same issue. This is absolutely ridiculous.

    Actually now I'm having the exact same issue... Cannot find a match and when I do, I'm stuck in the loading screen (where your player is juggling) and it never loads the match...

    Tried to go to EA help, but there's no contact option available at this time for reporting bugs...

    @RadioShaq sorry I know you're GD mod, but who's mod for Volta? Anyway we can pass on word that match making seems to be completely shot in Volta Squads?

    Literally cannot load a match even when players are found. I'm on Xbox Series S

    This problem still isn't fixed
  • Dec 19th, Volta is still unplayable. Wont even let me access the Volta menu today. This is BS. Entire portion of the game unplayable.
  • Absolute joke this is, its been months and i have had the instalizing bug, finds players fine, then the match just gets stuck on the instalizing screen, this has been happening for months now, and volta is literally the only mode i play, but because its not money driven nobody cares. Literally been months now, and i have played like three matches in total, EA SERIOUSLY need to fix this otherwise next year just please release UT as a whole game and be done with it. Joke.
  • Still unplayable. Volta has such huge potential, but EA just doesn't give a sh*t :/
  • EA I hope FIFA makes you bleed with franchising fee hikes. You couldn’t care any less about your customer base. The fact alone that Volta Squads hasn’t been fixed and MONTHS have gone by with not even an acknowledgment is insidious. Who is the franchise head of that product?? Is anybody working?? It’s unfair and EA owes refunds.
  • One easy solution is to give people the option to play online solo again, controlling the whole team. I understand they think they're doing something by encouraging co-op play, but for many users that's simply not a desire when matchmaking co-op in Volta just means watching randos style out and not pass until they lose the ball.

    Plus, rather than having to wait to match with 8 other players to start, you're only waiting on one. Everyone wins!

    please give us a better Volta mode. I live this mode and it seems to be the most fun to me and can as well be a very competitive for the players who are non-traditional FIFA players, a 5v5, 3v3, 4v4, mode with more access for competitive play online. Like a pro clubs Volta.
