    It's working for me now. Have you tried restarting the app?

    I can't get on now. I have been playing most off the day with out any issues. But then for the past hour or so, nothing but the Bart screen for me. Not sure if anyone else is having this problem again.

    I wish they gave warnings if they were doing upgrades or tweaks on the servers. This getting a little annoying.

    Sounds like the load balancer for EA's servers are not taking the server with the issue out of the pool. We had an issue like this at my last job. They need to put in a more specific keep alive script to mark a server with an issue as down so it gets bypassed.
    The person that was unable to connect with the iPad but ok on the iphone tells me that there is a sticky script keeping the iPad connected to the defunct server. Best case is EA finds it and fixes /pulls it... Else you may have to just wait for the connection to timeout and hopefully you get passed to a working server the next go around. Each time you try to connect and get a bad server the timer restarts. Only problem is we don't know how long the timer is set.
    I just started having the issue so I guess I'll let it set 15 min, 30, 45, etc to see if I can guess the timeout setting..
    I wonder who's the networking on call guy over there... They need to call/wake'im up.. :D

    They probably can't warn you when it's a problem that just comes up.

    My guess is that either certain areas in the world are having problems allowing a user to contact EA's game server for TSTO, or their load balancing is sending you to a server that is not active. Hopefully they're working on it. They probably are, as TSTO is a big money maker for them.

    The suggestion that the iPad hasn't released the connection, so it still works, is quite possible, too.

    Things have been ok on my end. I just got off the game, visited all friends, and didn't have any problems. I'm playing on an Android tablet.

    I set my timer for 15 minutes and was able to login after.. Hope EA can fix the server(s) that are having the issue soon..
