    Finally got in after multiple attempts. Clicked the friends button to visit some towns and get some coins. Back to square one. Damn you Friday nights!!

    I'd complain and whine a lot harder if it weren't for the picture of Bart in the background lol. You just can't hate the lil guy.

    I have numerous tasks finishing and coins to collect and can't get in!!!!

    EA should have done a better job stress testing!

    Well, this is the first time I could not get in due to too many people playing, I think I should consider myself lucky! At least I can go back to important things for a while like Angry Birds Star Wars. :?

    I kept hitting retry on the Bart screen then they logged me out and won't let me in. I'm getting: you've tried to login to Origin too many times.

    I got in long enough to collect from my tree and set my people to overnight tasks. Bed now, and I hope it's alright in the morning.

    But yeah, that message is probably the worst one they can give if the entire world is shut out.

    Problem is that the main way to get coins seems to be to visit tons of friends (which is probably hell on the servers), as there aren't enough buildings that generate coins (other than the superexensive Santa village). Decorating houses doesn't pay off for 10 days. And Everyone is stressed because Barney is obtainable and no one wants to miss that

    that's a good point but there also might be a problem with trying to get coins from friends. I visited several friends towns and only saw one coin and it never respawned. That was right before things went down.

    Got back on for just enough time to choose between Bart's 10 min Dr Hibbert quest and 10 hour Christmas quest. I chose the 10 minute quest. Hope I picked right.

    I was able to get in long enough to assign tasks, but was kicked out again when I tried to visit neighbors.

    Same here in New Zealand, I wonder if they took the servers down on purpose to fix certain decoration glitches :)

    Homer just forgot to plug the lights in! :D

    Its useful to hear that people can get in. I did get in to set the characters on their tasks but lost the connection when I hit the friends button. I wish I understood whether you have to sync the game by going to the friends screen or not, and how does your progress get saved anyway? If it crashes while placing a new decoration when you go back you have to do it again. So all the money I collected from characters hopefully isn't lost, how quickly does it get saved I wonder?

    Not fun. :(

    UK it's just before half past midnight here and it's still out. I read one of these comments and it mentioned an update earlier today just before the crash. I went to my App Store to look for an update but none was available all it would allow was to open the app from the. But hey. It let me in to the game. Was only in for enough time to collect Cletus and put him back out for 8 hrs and I was booted again. But it might be worth a try for some of you,s. please post if it works
