EA is trying to fix The Simpsons: Tapped Out [update]

The Simpsons: Tapped Out went from having a four star rating to a two star rating in 24 hours. The vast majority of users are being disconnected from servers (a constant internet connection is required), losing progress and encountering several bugs. Can you imagine spending over $1000 virtual dollars on a piece of land only to not be able to access it later on? This is the kind of the thing that has made The Simpsons: Tapped Out go from highly anticipated to universally loathed.

Staying true to the Simpsons style of humor, EA has updated the game’s description to address the issues a lot of players are having.

“The response to The Simpsons: Tapped Out has been overwhelmingly positive – so overwhelmingly, in fact, it has created some connection issues,” the description reads. “If you are now experiencing this with the game, it’s likely the cause. We are currently working on a solution, and we’ll have more info to share soon. Thanks for your patience.”

Considering the fact EA recently pulled Battlefield 3: Aftershock from the Apple App Store (it’s not coming back by the way), it’s disheartening to see The Simpsons: Tapped Out going down the same path.

Update 11:29am EST: It’s currently impossible to access the servers for The Simpsons: Tapped Out. It has been this way for several hours.

  • Natalie

    I was on level 18 and I went back in to play my game and it was all gone. Soooo frustrating!! Is there any way to get it back?? I have logged out and back in and nothing. It still updates me about things with my springfield but doesnt show up…HELP!!

    • Tanya

      The same thing just happened to me… so whats the answer do we ever get it back? and who can I contact about this?

  • Joey

    If EA can’t “cut the mustard” and actually do something right, then why don’t they just give the game to a company that can!

  • Joan

    So frustrating have not been to play for two days :(

  • Leah

    I just cannot understand why EA Sports feels its right to ask people to spend money on a complete disaster. the game constantly malfunctions, never saves any progress and forces me to start over because EA sports cannot do an adequate job at providing dependable services……But they will certainly have no problem taking your money…..repeatly. Im am heavily disappointed because I am a huge Simpsons fan, but this make me no longer want to watch the show……the shitty experience puts a bad taste in my mouth

  • Patricia Breitschwerdt

    Game froze up at level 26 and won’t reload. I have deleted the game off of my phone completely and reloaded it and it still hangs up. I even tried logging in through my wife’s phone and it still locks up. This might be a profile issue. Please fix it EA, I love this game.

    I also am locked out of tapped out Simpsons …I keep hearing chimes when I try to get on…I am really upset… I spent a lot of money for donuts….this is ridiculous!! Please help…… I am addicted!!!! Going crazyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!

  • Maria

    I had 23 hearts and they disappeared. My donuts get taken when I am collecting my money and XP. The box pops up with the time left for next pay and use donuts for faster pay. I guess I must be bumping the donuts. The box should not even open when tapping the dollar sign ! I do not play with any friends.

  • Pottiejoe

    I think that the iPhone update and the game update at the same time Caused a spatial flux in the space time continuum The game is really working but you are not seeing it.
