Update: 10:45am ET March 2nd….”sticking” this to the top of the site as some of you are having server issues again. Use this post to discuss. All the same links still apply. However, I have not seen an update regarding the outage on EA’s Twitter as of yet. I’ll keep checking and keep you informed.
Update: From EA Help Desk 2pm ET, so about an hr ago…
That being said….some of you are reporting your back in. So they may slowly be coming back online.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
As you saw from the title of this post….the Servers are in fact down. And they’ve been down for awhile.
According to EA’s Twitter from last night, they were doing some maintenance on the servers…
UPDATE: FYI EA is now saying the TSTO related issues right now are not related to maintenance. They completed the maintenance a few hours ago. It appears it’s directly a TSTO issue and they’re working on it. They help crew on twitter is directing players here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Simpsons-Tapped-Out/connection/td-p/6659157 (although I don’t know why there’s no new info there…but i’m guessing to at least put a me too in)
It appears that the hardest hit areas are the UK and Europe (with some outages in other places as well)…check out this map:
(you can view an updated map at any time here)
No idea how long they’re going to be out for, or if this will get more widespread. For now this is about all I know….but you can check out updated status for EA servers on this site.
Or EA’s Help Twitter @EAHelp
So for now, know it’s not you…it’s EA. And it’s not just you….others are impacted too. Also, it’s not just TSTO…it’s a variety of games.
And feel free to use this post as an Open Thread to vent about the situation…just no cursing and same Open Thread Rules apply…
