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:
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 🙂

I updated to the new IOS 7.1 and since then I can’t get into my my tapped out game. It freezes at the black Gracie screen and just sits there. Anyone else having this problem? And what do I need to do to get my game to start letting me in? Please help!!
I would suggest to start of with some basic troubleshooting steps to see if that clears it up. You can find more info on them in the post below. Let us know if they help. If not, contacting EA for further tech support might be needed.
So now valentine’s is over and you got you a new sweetheart…don’t blow it…I can’t tell you what to do but maybe I can tell you what NOT to do…
Mrs. Freak, “Does this dress make me look fat?”
Freak, ” No, I think you can blame that on your hips”
Don’t do that…
Freak, “Honey let’s have a threesome some night”…
Mrs. Freak, “Okay, call and invite that big guy from across the street!”
Don’t do that…either.
Toys are fun just keep in mind she might use them on you…
OMG!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! Thanks for the giggles. 😉
Hey showoff…not only did you make a cool train and tracks but you had to read my mind and build a runway for the plane…!!!…lol
That post above was only going to be G-rated and I just got carried away…we split in 1999, divorced in 05…we’re friends now.
You are WELCOME! I’ve only just begun in that town. Once I get a rhythm, I will concur it then move on to the 2nd one.
It still made me giggle. I’m glad you guys stayed friends. Oh the things I could share…but alas…this isn’t the place. Lol. 😉
So still no word yet on the grinder? Guess I’ll keep collecting those hearts just in case!!!!
Still nothing on the grinder, we’ll keep you posted if we hear anything 🙂
Just for that reason, I’m hardly playing the game these days. I only service my main account every other day and have left the other 2 to rot. The Valentine event is okay but we could do with a new level
Yes…a new level is much needed at this point! I miss the days before Halloween when we were getting an update every other week. Here’s hoping they get back into that rhythm soon! 🙂
Bit hit and missing trying to login this morning, but do get in after a retry or teo. No update, no heart grinder.
You guys are nuts over water…I just had milk and cookies…oh and my SF has been open all day…must be some’m in yo water…
It’s my special Bunny “Water”. 😉
lol that Bunny Water must have the pepper homer ate at the chili cook-off. He saw some weird stuff and a talking coyote 🙂
Isn’t maintenance EA speak for new update preparation?
Pretty much. Lol
They say drink to forget so a little “water” would be nice since i cannot get the “awesome” song out of my head! lol Btw, Howdy Neighboreeno! (Seapeach) love your SF!
Mmmmmmmmm WAAAAAAATTTTTTEEEEERRRRRRRR!!!! 😉
\_/ : )
Hey, Hey, Runic. I wanted to tell you the same – your SF looks great! I knew you were doing a rebuild and it’s coming along nicely. 🙂
So I moved over to tonight’s special thread just to make folks say “what up with her” because now I’ve created a whole new song. “This is the song that never ends, cause everything is awesome…” Quick, Alissa! Send me some water! I can feel the drain bamage growing. 😉
Hahaha don’t worry we’ll have a fresh batch of “water” going this weekend! 😉
So are y’all still snow-bound there? Cause I’m thinkin’ if you are, you’ll have time to make batches instead of batch… Woohoo, water for everyone!
Well it snowed again this morning and it’s supposed to snow again next week. We’ve still got about a foot of snow on the ground, luckily we can get out to go to the brew store. lol We’ll see what we come up with 🙂
More snow (shudder). So I probably shouldn’t tell you about the daffodils blooming in my yard…
way to rub it in 😉
Oh, just paybacks for the new song you planted – you devious Addict, you. ;). We were 20 degrees in FL three weeks ago and now in the 70s.
How about the Tom’s Diner song?
Da da da da da da da da da da da da da
Or crash test dummies mmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmm mmmmmmm
Or HEYYYYYY MACARENA!!
Or the AMAZING one from my about me post? Lol
Hey now…MY WATER!! Lol
Good gravy! I just got run over by a fluffy. Note to self – don’t stand between Bunny and her water! 🙂
(In fashion of the Finding Nemo Gulls)
Mine mine mine mine mine mine mine. Lol
Uncle, UNCLE! Have mercy, oh fluffy one. 🙂
I want to ask something i am playing everyday since the valentineupdate and farming chochoo trains but now im thinking, the bonusxp cash from everyone of them stacks? I have 6 allready XD
Yup they stack. So if you have 6 its 2.25×6…so 13.5% on trains alone 🙂
Like burns will say Excelent
Is there a cap of bonus xp in total?
Not that i’ve seen. My bonus XP is currently over 200% 🙂
Same here, got in and saw nothing new. Also noticed the fb post “disappeared.” Maybe that is what is unlocking on 2/20 in the valtwolateunlock from your post before??
It’s entirely possible. 🙂
I was able to get in a few minutes ago, no sign of a heart grinder.
I have a feeling because it was on the FB page and now it’s gone again, someone jumped the gun at EA in pushing something meant for a little later. 😉
It is also possible that someone at EA was using last years copy and forgot to delete the part about the heart grinder. I wasn’t really expecting it to return this year since the hearts are being used for spins instead of as currency.
Also a possibility. 🙂
Sorry, that came out sounding really critical. At least it was just a facebook post that they could take down. At worst it stirs up some community speculation.
The rumor mill is already buzzing! You should hear the speculation from some people, cracks me up! 🙂
On EA’s fb or the official Tapped Out fb?
What’s a heart grinder?
Item from last years Valentines event. You would put hearts in and get cool stuff back in return.
It converted unused hearts into cash, kind of like how Krustyland converts extra tickets into cash. If I recall, the icon for the heart grinder looked like a sausage grinder with a bunch of hearts crammed in the top.
So, just in case, should we hoard our hearts & spin them all out on the last day?
