The Simpsons Tapped Out is an EA game. That means its online features have to go through Origin. Many gamers will tell you Origin hasn’t necessarily been a shining example of how a major online gaming service should function. Origin is known for spitting out errors across multiple games. The Simpsons Tapped Out is no exception.
EA made the decision to make The Simpsons Tapped Out unplayable unless you’re connected to the internet through Wi-Fi or a data connection. Due to this requirement, you’re left to the mercy of Origin’s servers to dictate whether you’re going to have a pleasant gaming experience. Unfortunately Origin is causing server errors for many people playing The Simpsons Tapped Out. A lot of user reviews are also complaining about having their progress reset multiple times.
I’ve witnessed a few of the bugs people are talking about. There are times when I will be kicked from the game and have to redo certain actions. I never lost a significant amount of progress, but it’s clear others have. With this being a game that heavily depends on microtransactions, the last thing EA needs are complaints from people losing money due to server errors.
