The server(s) I'm on right now don't appear to be down. Have you tried resetting your network?

    I haven't been able to log on through WiFi for days now. I have to switch off WiFi to log in. At least I have plenty of 3G data that I can use but it really isn't good enough.

    I'm in the UK and am looking at the forum for help because I'm getting the Bart screen again. You're not the only one with problems.

    Yesterday was annoying. I was planning to play last night and spent hours tapping 'retry'. Eventually I managed to connect. I'm feeling unhappy because I missed out on cannon firing and elves. The cumulative effect of all these server down times will probably prevent me from achieving the final prize. No word from EA about extending the event to allow for tappers to complete.

    I'm sure those players who have not had connection issues will not mind this event hanging around for another 3 - 4 days.

    Not working for me now either :evil: . Kept it on throughout the night So I could shoot the cannon when I had to drink some water/use restroom while sleeping. Was working just fine until I woke up for good just now at 9:30 ET/6:30 PT, can't connect.

    Edit* was able to connect after about 20 mins.

    Since the beginning of the event, the event itself was scheduled to end on the 18th. The deadline for the prizes was scheduled to be the 13th. I found that bizarre when the event began. So, extending the time to get to that final prize by 5more days would make absolutely no difference to those who already reach their final prize by the 13th. None of them would see any change at all.

    Maybe it was a built-in "cushion" from the start, to avoid complaints from the few players who would hate hearing the event was going to exceed the players expected date. That's the only possible reason I can think of for the initial discrepancy.

    it seems to go down in the UK just as the US starts waking up. I guess everyone is trying to get on at the same time and overloading the servers. It came back up yesterday during the evening here so I guess it'll be the same today.
    I love my computer...all my friends live in it

    I'm in Ireland and can't get on right now either but it was perfect between 10am-1pm and I managed to get all friend visits done so I'm more sympathising than complaining.

    But to everyone that is here to complain there is no point this is a discussion forum for the players, if ye want to complain or want ea to notice you must use the other forum help.ea.com I think or something like that. This is just a general comment and not targeted at anyone in particular.

    I and my partner are totally hooked to the game despite our ages (41).

    Thanks to the game I have restarted watching The Simpsons on Sky 1 more often.

    However I don't expect the servers to be 100% at all times. Imagine if your parents (if ya under 18 :) ) allowed you to keep the tv on 24/7 I'm sure you would get bored easily.

    However there are two complaints I do have although these are more niggles than anything.

    The 24 hour waits for some buildings are a pain as are the high cost of some buildings and characters whom don't do a lot as a return.

    Also I have seen some fantastic screenshots in the showcase board and wish some folks wouldn't just pile endless buildings on their land for no reason.

    Isn't one Krustyburger or Kwik E Mart enough? Twenty white houses in a row is also OTT in my opinion.

    it's not pretty but it's a quick and easy way to make money, think it's called house farming.

    It's like wanting a car and instead of making monthly payments, deciding to drive an old crap car for a while and to take on a boring, tedious, repetitive part-time job at minimum wage, with lousy hours, plodding along saving up the money all at once and then buying the car.

    It was how things used to be done in the old days when we couldn't get things on installment plans or credit. You saved up money. When you had all the money, you got what you were aiming for. Meanwhile, you had zip to show for it. You drove the cfrap car, and put a bumper sticker on it saying "Don't laugh. It's paid for." ;)

    I wouldn't consider housefarming easy. Its frustrating. Some of us aren't willing to do it that way. We're too impatient and want to see some positive results along the way.

    It's not something I'm willing to do in my main town, but that's because I'm impatient. ;)

    I agree, getting very sick of this.... Very hard to enjoy and play the game when you can barely login.

    I've collected hardly any elves today and therefore very few bells. I suspect I will not make the final prize at this rate unless the event is extended or the elf drop increases substantially.

    As this game relies on all of us being a little OCD in wanting to collect everything this is all very disappointing. On way home and will be going onto either Advanced Warfare, Alien Isolation, Assassins Creed or Shadow of Mordor to variously shoot, stab and otherwise blow things up to make myself feel better. :wink::lol:

    I (like many others) began farming blue or white houses to get the money I needed quickly to get buildings and characters. But now that I'm leveled out and have lots more money, land, bonus multipliers; I've been able to concentrate on making my springfield much more genuine and aesthetically pleasing.

    I just started getting the Bart screen "again" in my B game but not my main town. This is really annoying now. EA has responded to my ticket by saying it is a pretty universal problem and they are looking into it. I am in North America playing on IOS.

    Same here. I was just connected, was visiting friends towns, then got a crash.

    Restarted the game, and can't get out of Bart screen :(
