Rollback Bug “Solution”

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, it seems we finally have a resolution to the Rollback Bug. While it doesn’t seem to be the solution/resolution many of us were hoping for EA has come out with their plan to “fix” to Rollback Bug.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Rollback Bug check out this post.  Or this episode of Addicts Live.

Many of you who have reported the bug to EA should have received an email yesterday about their solution to the problem.  Thank you to many of you who forwarded this email to me.  Too many of you to name, but I appreciate you all taking the time to pass the info over to me.  And yes, you all got the same email.

So what does it say?  What’s their solution?  Let’s take a look… Continue reading

And Now a Word From EA….Secure Registration

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Some of you may have seen a notification in your game yesterday about a new secure login going into effect tomorrow.  Some of you (like me) may not have seen the notification.  So here it is again, straight from EA’s TSTO Facebook Page:

So basically tomorrow your game will log you out (as long as you play on an EA account).  When that happens, simply log back into your game.  You won’t need to do anything else.

If you play on an anonymous account you won’t need to do anything…but if you’re playing on an anonymous account I once again HIGHLY recommend creating an account for your game to save your progress.  It’s just a smart move.

Also, some are speculating this may help the Rollback glitch. Honestly, I have no idea if it will or won’t.  But it is becoming such a problem these days I really hope it gets fixed….

And based on the fact it appears the rollback glitch/bug is related to where your game is saved on the server, I’m really hoping this is their attempt to fix it.  But we shall see what happens tomorrow….

Show Notes:

Instead of launching the poll for this week with this episode, I launched a series of polls two days ago about the dreaded Rollback Bug.  If you haven’t already take a moment to answer those questions, which can be found here, we’ll be talking about them on the show today.

 

Addicts Want to Know: Rollback Glitch

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Unfortunately, it looks like the dreaded rollback glitch is spreading…and like wildfire!  We posted about the glitch here back in March. Actually a month ago today.  We gave you guys the steps to contact EA to have your games rolled back, and many of you reported that the rollback from EA helped but EA also said a patch was coming.

Well….that was a month ago.  To date, no patch has hit the games and the glitch is impacting more and more players each day.  Not only that, y’all are posting various reports from EA customer service.  Some are saying they won’t roll your game back, some are saying they will.  Some of you are saying EA says a patch will be here by the end of the week (that was several weeks ago now), while others are saying EA doesn’t know when it’ll be fixed.

It’s a HUGE mess!  Leaving loads of you ticked off and ready to leave a game you’ve been playing for years over it.  Need more proof?  Look at the app store comments for Tapped Out! Players are pissed about this and rightfully so!

It’s enough to make me break out my Angry Socks again…

EA needs to get their act together and fix it, because the worse it gets (the more players impacted) the more likely people are to stop playing TSTO.  I know personally, while not currently impacted, I’ve been playing TSTO for nearly 6 years and blogging for nearly 5 years and if I get hit with the glitch I’m walking away.  It’s just not worth it to me.  The THOUSANDS (and I mean thousands) of dollars I’ve spent on this game are not worth it for the frustration of not being able to play.  And I don’t blame anyone of you that quits over this stupid bug. It’s been long enough, it should be fixed by now.

So here’s what I want to do now.  We’re going to spend a good chunk of time on Saturday’s Addicts Live talking about the Rollback Glitch and I wanted to get some feedback from y’all on your experiences with it to use on the show.  So if you could take a minute to answer the series of poll questions below (if they apply to you, don’t answer if they don’t apply to you) and feel free to share more about your experience with the Glitch in the comments below….

Thanks guys!  And be sure to tune into Addicts Live on Saturday April 14th at 12pm ET to participate in the conversation about the Rollback Glitch. (don’t worry we’ll be talking about Springfield Jobs too)

TSTO App Store Update Available

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

There is an app store update available in your store (iOS/Android/Amazon).  This is NOT for new content.  My guess is this is an attempt to fix the Rollback Glitch many of you have been having.

You’ll have to let me know if this attempt is successful…

If you don’t have the glitch, you’ll still need to download the update. This way your game will be on the same version as your neighbors (and it won’t impact your tapping).

Those of you with the glitch you’ll have to let me know your results with the update!

Rollback Glitch

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Seeing loads of reports (more so each day) coming in from players indicating their games suddenly think it’s a year or more ago!  They’re seeing questlines and tasks popup from events that happened months and even years ago. Examples include (but not limited to): Being asked to collect Red Ribbons (from County Fair), Pie Man questlines appearing (from Superheros) and more!

In addition, players may lose all new content related to Homer vs. the 18th Amendment!

If this happens to you…..

Unfortunately, there is no quick fix I can offer you. Uninstall/reinstall won’t help.  What you’ll have to do is contact EA directly and likely they’ll have to roll your game back a day or two in order to correct the issue. You can contact EA here:

https://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/new/?product=the-simpsons-tapped-out

Hopefully, that helps those of you struggling with this issue out!  Unfortunately, while I wish I could, there’s no quick fix I can offer.  This is the best/only way to get your individual game corrected.
