    Please Read: Disconnects

    Not sure how they figured this one out but I hope they're right. Let's make sure we follow this recommendation and see what happens:

    In a nutshell, don't go into practice mode in the OD before starting a game. If you must practice, make sure to back all the way out of the dynasty (I would probably just go ahead and restart the 360 to be safe).

    I didn't read that thread, but do many people really hit practice mode in the OD ever let alone right before an OD game. I can't imagine it's that many people and certainly not enough to cause what seems to be a really wide spread problem.

    Yeah, that seems kind of odd...I mean, I don't doubt it could cause issues, but I seriously doubt it's the cause of this whole outbreak we've had.

    I also doubt it has been the cause of the outbreak, but if I am waiting on my opponent I will often go into practice mode within the OD. I won't be doing so any longer.

    I do the same thing as Basis. I think it's more common than you'd expect. JMill and I had no disconnect issues last night, so I guess we're 1 for 1 in the E-League.

    Did you practice before our game? I didn't. We didn't get a DC, but I remember we had 3 "please wait" messages.

    I probably did. I don't remember if I did before my game vs Army or not, but we had a DC there.

    If I haven't played the game in a few days and I'm in the OD a little early, I like to run a few plays before a user game just to get "tuned up" a little. I'm guessing there are several guys who do this.

    JMill and I got the message just before our game last night so I avoided practice. I probably would have used it last night if I hadn't known because I was done recruiting before JMill popped in. We didn't have any lag or "please wait" messages.

    Just had one tonight in the West. Lost connection while I was playing Cnic. I was Texas A&M, he was Texas. I was up by as many as 10 until the late Fourth when he ran back his 2nd TD of the game to get back within 3 with 4 minutes left. He had yet to stop me except an INT. Then, bang.....Lost connection. Neither of us practiced so I dont know where it came from. I could not log back onto XBXO live either after it happend

    That sounds like it might have been and XBL issue if you couldn't reconnect. With the practice mode issue, I don't think people are even getting disconnected from XBL.
