Servers Down? Neighbors Missing? Mummy Curse?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Yes, the servers are down for some.  Yes, EA’s network is down for some.  And Yes, neighbors are missing for some!

The good news is, it’s not a Mummy’s Curse…it’s just typical Network glitches from EA.  Hopefully all will be resolved soon!

In the meantime, don’t panic.  Just eat some more Halloween Candy and hopefully the sugar high will take your mind off the game for a little while.  Fingers crossed it’s all back up soon!
