Whenever a game is released there tend to be a few “teething problems”, however most of the time developers listen to consumer feedback and roll out patches to fix known issues – we are hearing that a recent patch which was rolled out for NCAA Football 12 on both PS3 and Xbox 360, however it looks like it has broken more than it fixed.
According to this recent article posted over at JoyStiq the patch “broke or hampered” key features of the game, you can read a thread over at the EA forums here where many people are reporting issues which they have encountered – the most common problem seems to be a “Transfer Failed” error message which shows up frequently after an online game (see below).
As you can imagine people are getting a bit annoyed by the situation, on September 7th EA announced that they had been working on the problem and title update #2 would patch this, two days later a patch was rolled out over Xbox Live and PSN, but the problem still exists. You can see a full changelog of what this patch brings here, below is what EA had to say about the main “Transfer Failed” issue.
Fixed an issue where coaches that changed jobs could get stuck in a state where they were still listed as coaching at their old school on the Players Leaving screen, leading to a Transfer Failed issue.
This suggests that there may be more reasons for the “Transfer Failed” issue than EA first thought, you should follow the official EA Sports NCAA Football Twitter page for all of the latest updates on the situation – there has been nothing of significance lately, perhaps title update #3 is being worked on, we will keep you posted if and when we hear more on the situation.
Have you experienced the “Transfer Failed” issue, if so did the recent patch resolve the problem for you? If not, did it at least improve things slightly? Let us know in the comments section below.
