The dynasty loss glitch appears to be most prevalent in offline dynasties. The majority of those who have reported the problem has not been participating in the online version of Madden NFL 22's franchise mode. That's a small consolation for those who are only playing the cloud version of the game. The fact that they are playing the cloud version of the franchise makes some sense, as it allows them to use the most recent roster when a player is starting a new run. Given the high number of glitches that have been reported in EA Sports games, it isn't unreasonable to avoid putting yourself in a position where you may be unable to start your franchise.
Madden NFL 22 has been available for purchase for about a month. It's unclear whether Electronic Arts actually followed through on its promise to make this installment of the long-running Madden NFL franchise better than its immediate predecessor. There have undoubtedly been improvements, perhaps as a result of the developers' increased confidence in developing a game that performs better on the Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5, but a major issue arose in Madden NFL 22 not long after the game's release, a problem known as the loss glitch.
Madden NFL 22 is a game that has a lot of positive aspects. Some of the features that have been added to the franchise mode are what make the game feel like an improvement over Madden NFL 21. This includes a restructured coaching staff that has an impact on the team, as well as the way players become fatigued throughout the season. No matter how much better the franchise mode is in this year's version of the game, the loss glitch can leave a bad taste in a player's mouth, especially if it occurs late in a season. Fortunately, it may no longer be a problem.
The loss glitch in Madden NFL 22 is exactly what it sounds like. There have been reports of the glitch occurring after players have completed a game. Once the game has concluded, even if the player has triumphed, the glitch will make it appear as if they have lost. More than that, the glitch completely wipes out all of the player's statistics throughout the course of a game.
The good news is that EA responded relatively quickly to the glitch that caused the loss. Shortly after people began reporting problems with the Madden NFL 22 franchise mode, the developer released a patch to fix the problem. For the time being, it appears that the patch has resolved the loss glitch, as well as a slew of other bugs and issues that plagued the game's initial release. If something worse happens in its place, the question is whether EA is more on top of this sort of thing than it has been in the past.
In the Madden NFL 22 franchise, when a glitch wipes out a win and turns it into a loss, the glitch carries over into the actual franchise, so even if a user's team is having a good start to the season, they can be saddled with a defeat. The disappointment can be compounded when someone is invested in their franchise and the loss could mean the difference between making it to the postseason or not. There's also the possibility that a team may have amassed some impressive stats for their digitized players only to see them receive nothing at the end of the day.
