    Here's my experience, and it may help with some theories as to the problem?

    I have two towns; one I play exclusively on my Android tablet, the other exclusively on my Android 'phone.

    My wife plays on her iPad air.

    Well, last night, I was getting an immediate crash on load from both my towns. I noted my wife was getting into her town okay.

    So this morning, after still getting crashes, I tried to load both towns on my wife's iPad - success! I cleared Homer's task, and got the elf collection going.

    Next, I tried loading the towns on their respective Android devices - success again! So I was able to progress through the first couple of steps of Part 2 on those devices, and I thought all was good again.

    Just now I tried again - and back to crashing again! What's the betting, if I tried using my wife's iPad again, I'd be okay?

    So it's either:
    - An issue loading Android saves on Android devices;
    - An issue with the server both my devices use, but not the server my wife's iPad uses? Seems odd that a server would be tied to a particular device, not an account.

    Haven't been able to connect all day on either my Galaxy Nexus phone (tried wiping the cache et al,) or my new Galaxy Tab with a fresh install. Last time I was able to get on was around 9pm last night. Oddly enough though my wife can get onto hers using her iPhone 5 and iPad mini.
    EA quality and consistency as always.. :roll:

    Lizard Squad may be causing some issues. They have been messing with the Xbox and PlayStation servers today.

    I was fine until around one hour ago but now I can't get in. So I thought I'd move into xbox one - my wife bought me some excellent headphones for Christmas so I thought I'd try them out. And XBOX LIVE IS DOWN so I can't login to play online there either. Xbox were streaming The Interview today so I guess they might be being attacked.

    Still Downton Abbey is on in an hour so time to relax with a bit of upper class tomfoolery. :wink::lol:

    Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays everyone. :D

    if that was the case everybody would be down, they are a bunch of 12 years olds with their DDOS attacks.

    In the case of Sony and Microsoft it might be......whisper it ......... Kim Wrong Un and his cyber-henchmen.

    I'm unable to connect as well. Haven't been able to connect on my iphone since last night. Got a new android tablet today and installed the app, it downloaded all the necessary updates, but it crashes every time I log in. My daughter hasn't been able to log into her Springfield on her Nook all day, either.
