    Isn't it interesting that the announcement says that all EA games will be offlin, including ones that use Origin. So it is a much bigger piece of maintenance than only Origin, not to mention much bigger than just our update. If it isn't connected to our update, though, it seems likes bit of a coincidence/a massive pain in the neck that its at the exact time of what we hope to be the best update ever.

    I wonder if other EA/Origin games are having similar problems with saved files. Anybody heard anything?

    I play Sims Free Play and there are no problems. I don't think it's an Origin game though, they use something called "the cloud". I wonder if it will be down as well tomorrow?

    I know its impossible to know but is there a certain time they update? i remember getting valentines update in the middle of the night for example. any thoughts?

    and btw on the sticky thread the mod said:

    There is also a planned outage of the Origin servers on April 10th/11th. The approximate times for this outage are as follows:

    1:00AM EDT and going until 5:00AM EDT
    PDT: April 10th at 10:00PM until April 11th at 2:00AM
    GMT: April 11th at 5:00AM GMT until 9:00AM GMT

    During this time there will be limited to no access to the servers.

    So... maybe the update will come after that..

    There are threads about this already so going to merge it.

    I'm playing right now. Switched from my iPhone to iPad about an hour ago, started the app, and I was logged out!! Freaked out for about 2 seconds until I realized my town was still there. Everything seems good, hasn't crashed and moving nicely as I search for snakes

    Oh heavens no. How will I ever be able to delete over 3000 items now just to place one single snake egg??? Now it's gonna take 2 weeks instead of just 13 days to do it.

    Thanks. I'll try. I assume the outage was to add Origin to Android, and...did that happen? Maybe?

    I got in, too. Just canceling the tasks that would've lasted until the outage finished so I can start Whacking Day...

    Of course the early update hit right after I went to bed :?
