Xbox One Headset Disconnection Quits Game

Alright, so I'm playing FIFA online and everything is going great.

I am winning 4-1 and at the 88 minute, someone gets on the microphone and starts yelling at me with explicit vocabulary.

I, being the gentleman that I am, connect my microphone to engage in intelligent conversation.

After a few gentle words, I disconnect my microphone - but as soon as I do, I am taken to the dashboard.

I know what you're thinking, "you must've hit the dashboard button."

Well, you're wrong.

I press the FIFA logo and the game restarts.

I thought, "maybe the gentleman at the other end shot himself, but not before shooting the Xbox console, causing the game to quit on my end."

Well, I was wrong.

I log back in to see "DNF" along with all the mumbo jumbo about how my coins will be reduced (as if I haven't been "rage quitted" to the point of no return on Xbox 360).

I shed a tear and carried on.

...but then I stood up and yelled, "hey!"

I decided to test my theory by doing all sorts of things while playing online - to no avail.

It only happens when I disconnect the microphone.

Anyone else experiencing this? or wanna try this out?

(PS: it doesn't happen every time, sometimes it happens on the first connect/disconnect of the headset, sometimes the second or third.)

Hey Smoke,
 

Sounds like a very curious issue you are experiencing and I am sorry to hear about it. So to understand correctly, this happens while you have your headset connected to your controller then you decide to disconnect your headset while gaming. After you do so you are sent to the home screen?
 

Reach back and clarify what happened so we can try to reproduce this with you and hope to find a solution.

Sorry this didn't help.

Also, it looks like you were able to reproduce the behavior on your own. Try this same thing in other titles as well. That way we can see if it is specific to one game or to the entire console. If it is specific to just the one game I would say talking to the publisher would be your best bet.

Yes, guys, you are both correct.

Unfortunately, I have yet to purchase another title so I am currently unable to test it out on another game.

I wanted to throw it out there, in case anyone else is experiencing the same issue.

I have a Best Buy gift card so I might purchase NBA 2K14 again (had it on the 360 and a GameStop associate told me that they'd let me trade it in for $9.99, which was untrue so I've been hesitant on spending another $60 for it).

Hey, just thought I'd mentioned I've had this happen to me as well while playing Dead Rising 3 with a friend.  Upon disconnecting the mic, I was ejected to the Xbox dashboard.  The game had to be rebooted, too.  I've not tried to recreate the problem, so I can't speak that though.

Yea I am having the exact same issue playing Dead Rising 3. I'll be playing online and then once I unplug my mic the game closes out and has to reboot and everything. I did a hard reset to my system by holding the power button down and it still does it during an online game. Microsoft offered to replace my head set but I still don't think that is the problem

So this has been happening to me on Fifa 14, NBA 2k14,Dead Rising, and Forza. Is there a solution to this? I am loosing a lot of Fifa points because it counts as a DNF

It's happening more than ever now. This Xbox is one of the worst investments I've ever made. It's disappointing on so many levels.

I'm right there with you Smoke Doobies.

I was playing a game last night for the title on FIFA 14, guy goes up 2-0, then I score 3. He begins talking all sorts nonsense, so I naturally plug my mic in. Instantly dashboarded and I get the DNF penalty.

It seems to be happening a lot more often ever since the new update, at least that's when it started for me. I'll get dashboarded when I both plug-in and unplug my mic.

There really are a number of issues with this box that go well beyond just the games.
