Episode Reminder: Frink Gets Testy

Note: Quick note..the servers ARE DOWN for some players.  There’s nothing you can do but wait until they come back up.  But they are down for some players, not all but some.  And here’s some info from EBRON:
Have some info on the TSTO connectivity problems that some tappers are running into. I have 3 apple devices, all using the same Wi-Fi and modem…only one has received the latest iOS update and that is the device which cannot keep a connection with EA’s server. I have spent some time on the phone with EA tech support this afternoon, and they are investigating the possibility of a glitch/incompatibility with the latest iOS update for iPads. Reports on the EA forum seem to point to an exclusively iPad problem, the reporter’s iPhones don’t seem to be affected. I’ve switched over to my old iPad, which is working fine, but I won’t be updating it till the problem is resolved.

Update from EBRON:
EA Tech Support requested that I add this request here…

If you cannot connect, please login to the EA TSTO forum and look for the “problem connecting to server” thread that is dated 1/13/18. Add your “me too” in the comments along with your type of device and if iOS, if you have updated recently. This won’t fix anything immediately, but it will give them some idea of the scope of the problem…thanks.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

  1. So I would like very much to watch The Simpsons episode, which was supposed to begin 11 minutes ago, but instead there is an NFL football game taking up as much time as it feels like… And once these things are done, we still don’t get to cut right over to scheduled programming. Because all the stupid “after game” stuff needs to be shared in loving detail, plus the commentators weighing in on the game that just happened. Ugh. *hate*

  2. Yesterday I cleared the data files on my Fire tablet and then restarted the game, had to re-login and was able to play as normal.
    However, the Bart screen is back again tonight
    Obviously this is not an OS fault but something wrong at EA

  6. My other 2 devices both got hit with the “can’t connect” bug this morning, so I am now totally cut off also. This is almost acting like a virus…too weird 😟.

    • Hope this isn’t EA’s way of ‘going Nuclear’, give us a last big Christmas blow out, mop up our dough for donuts, then say ‘we didn’t end it’, it was a meltdown of catastrophic proportions. Irretrievable. Sorry.

  17. I’m having the same issue. I’ve downloaded the game twice now. A lot of people are saying it’s iPad, but I’m on Android. Even when I contacted EA they sent me the troubleshooting for iOS. Wouldn’t matter anyway, I did all the normal troubleshooting before I contacted them. I hope this gets fixed asap.

  19. Was in the middle of playing the game on iphone when connection was lost earlier today. Did not have the update installed and thought the inability to connect could be due to that. Installed the update and still cannot connect.

      • Thanks – report posted. Although 15 minutes later and after playing a bit on Bluestacks, I tried again on my LG and got a continually spinning donut rather than the server error. So I hit “Force Stop” from the Apps list and started the app again, and was logged in normally woohoo! I could also visit friends and exit and re-start the app and change Wifi base stations without problem. (FWIW I had already reinstalled and tried all those things a few times before to no effect.)

        Perhaps it’s a coincidence, or perhaps playing in Bluestacks a bit did something magic. Or maybe it’ll break again in a few minutes lol. Fingers crossed…
