Madden NFL 15 Quick Fix For Desync Errors
Quite a few players have reported issues with online games desyncing and ultimately causing disconnects, and it appears the primary culprit has been discovered by EA: It’s likely a result of inconsistency in graphical options.
Madden NFL 15 developer Josh Looman went to Twitter with what he knew about the issue to try and help fans. “According to my team, the desyncs are being caused by league users having different settings for kicking arc and defensive graphics,” said Looman, who has no-doubt been one of the many devs receiving complaints across social media from users unable to complete their games.
If you think this find means that a quick server-side update is right around the corner (like with sim stats), then you are out of luck, as the issue appears to be something that will have to be handled in a proper patch along with many more quirks found this year.

There is, however, a pseudo-solution you can use to give yourself the best opportunity to avoid desync errors, and that’s by ensuring your kicking arc and defensive graphic settings are the same as your opponent. In short: Keep them default, because that’s what most users will have them as, or if you are in an online league try to coordinate with your opponent before the game.
With such an unprecedented amount of significant bugs being found this year, we might have to update our Madden 15 review which talked mostly about the gameplay. It’s expected that the longer you play a game the more you see issues that previously went unnoticed start to arise, but some of the issues that have cropped up have proven to be quite the nuisance for players.
I guess it’s “Bug Fixing Season” for EA.
