Update 1:30 p.m.: EA appears to have temporarily fixed the issue, according to their Trello board. To do this, the “Trickster+” playstyle of certain players had to be removed and was replaced by the “Trickster” playstyle. As soon as the problem is fixed with a future patch, they should get their original play style back.
Original message: There are bugs in games like EA Sports FC 24, they’re just funny, but not too bad because they don’t bother you much. But then there are also bugs that have the potential to make a title almost unplayable. The latest problem in EA Sports FC 24 falls into the latter category. With this “trick” you can simply run through to the opponent’s goal, completely without any resistance being possible.
EA Sports FC fans exploit massive glitch where ball simply sticks to leg
The latest part of EA’s football game series has been playable for a few weeks now and has recently been struggling with a particularly nasty bug. At least he’s nasty when he shows up at your opponents. If this is the case for you, the next goal is definitely yours.

This is how the bug works: Not only is it strange and funny to look at, but it’s also quite annoying if you just want to play a normal game. If the error occurs, the ball simply gets stuck on your character’s calf. Then you no longer have to dribble, you can’t be passed over and you can instead run straight into the goal.

The reactions are as follows: Most fans are quite aghast at this glitch and can hardly believe that such a serious error appears in the game. There’s talk of the “worst glitch of all time” and that’s one of the friendliest descriptions.
EA knows: Development studio EA Sports has already responded to the problem and is working on removing it from the game. However, the error does not seem to have been fixed yet.
This is of course particularly worrying with regard to the competitive part of EA Sports FC 24. In the past, the Weekend League has been postponed due to such difficulties, but that is not the case this time.
Have you already been affected by the bug? What do you think of EA Sports FC 24 in general at the moment?
