Oh Those Origin Servers Are Down Again….Open Thread

serverdowngraphic-800x450“They’re up
They’re down,
They’re down and up and down
down, down, down
up, up, up,
The EA Distraction Show!”
(Thanks CGuy for the awesome modification to my server’s down jingle!)

Update: 8:15pm EST…I’m finally able to get back into TSTO on my A game on my GS4 phone, but i’m still locked out on my B game on my Galaxy Tablet.  So some of you may be seeing service restored and others might still be experiencing downed servers.  Just keep being patient…they’ll be coming back up soon 🙂

Oh and about the heart grinder..no sight of it in the game at this point.  Someone at EA might have jumped the gun on Facebook, since the post has since been removed.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Are you seeing this message when you try to login to TSTO:
2014-01-29 21.25.47
Or this one?

Yea?  Me too.  But...DO NOT PANIC!  While it sucks, yes (especially with talk of the heart grinder returning again), this is something that we’re seeing many many MANY Tappers experiencing right now.

So be patient…relax…and keep trying.  Eventually they’ll come back up and we

can all get to Tap Tap Tappin again!

In the mean time…do you need some ideas of what to do?  Check out this post for the do’s and don’t’s of the Servers being down.

You can also add your Caption to our latest Caption This! OR talk amogst yourselves as we make this post a special Tuesday Open Thread!  So chat it up with each other about anything and everything TSTO related or not as we ALL wait for the servers to come back up 🙂

Can’t wait to chat with my favorite Addicts!

Note about the Heart Grinder Rumors….while we can’t verify this in the game (because we’re locked out too with the servers)…I’m currently checking through the files to see if I see anything that would indicated the heart grinder appearing in the game.  However, we can’t be certain until the servers let us back in, but I’ll let you know what I find 🙂

Silly Simpsons News: Everything is Awesome!

So how are my favorite Addicts doing?

Wookiee chiming in with a little bit of silly news about The Simpsons.  I’m sure by now a lot of you have heard about The LEGO Movie, right?  Well, me and my little Ewok went to see it last week for a little Daddy-Daughter time and I have to say it was quite awesome.  For anyone who has seen it, is that “Everything is Awesome” song still stuck in your head?

The Toxic Shark 2D

Wow, it has been a bit of time since my itchy lil tappin fingers have stopped long enough to create something new. Just having to much fun frakkin files, writing stories, and messing around in the Twitterverse that I got too distracted.

Well I think it is high time I got around to a project that has been on my mind for quite a few months now.

A great reader of all things Addicts and also friend over TOuk, toxicshark, took the time to create some really amusing “locations” with his graphics programs for us Addicts. They cracked me up a lot. As a nod back to him, I wanted to create a Shark for him. Sadly, the mist engulfed our towns…then the snow. So it was quite difficult to play around with my 2D art the way I wanted. Nothing looked quite right.
