    Can't login either...

    Played a new game anonymously until I could add friends, and wouldn't let me do that either.

    Well, good to know. misery loves company and sounds like I'll have plenty. Good news is the server is still sending out notifications of job completion so it isn't completely gone...well as long as zombies dont devour the whole town while we are locked out, of course that won't be a bug it's a "feature".

    Hopefully we get 60 more donuts when they fix this bug, no origin log in for me either

    Im back in as well. I sent a friend request or two out to a few of yall as well just to check everything looks like its all working again. Sure it was just " down for maintenance" so I wont be expecting any free donuts anytime soon, tho i could use a choclolate frosted or two right about now. Hopefully it stays up.

    This just happened to me today. I am still logged in, but there is no origin button and all my friends are gone. I hope mine comes back soon.

    It's back now. Hopefully this won't be a glitch that keeps on going.

    It's happening to me too. The added twist is I can't login at all via my iPad at all, Bart just mocks me relentlessly. apparently my phone still logs in tho. It Looks like whatever device you last logged into is caching your session but it can't contact the server to pull your friends list. They definitely have a good share of uptime issues in their data center. Hopefully the get it corrected soon.

    Ok I just tried to start the game and the icon for logging into Origin is completely missing. I can only sign in anonymously which obviously starts you over from the beginning. no down for maintenance messages, just missing. Anyone else seeing this issue?

    Same thing happened to me just a few hours ago, my 100 neighbors gone just like that, plus origins logo is missing as well, it has my screen name welcome every time and everything in my city seems to be there still so I'm breathing for now, just the friends bug, hopefully it's only a maintenance thing, another question what happened if I don't get to smash the zombies right after they come out? And let them walk around let say for a few hours? Thanks hope to hear back from any of you soon.

    Just checked and it Looks like everything is back up again and all your friends should be back.

    @Rlarcia The zombies will just roam and turn any characters on the street that they come in contact with to zombies until you squash them, but you should be able to turn anyone infected back by tapping on them. I haven't been able to determine for sure whether it interrupts the timer for any characters performing a job or not but it doesn't feel like it does. I could be wrong. may be worth a little research on my part.

    Well apparently was just an update because I got everything back, origin logo and neighbors as well, @topherjax I already tried letting the zombies walk around for half an hour or so and besides infect some of my characters they have no other effect, no time interrupt on the task at all so it's all good in the hood by now...I read there is a new small update coming up in a few hours so ill see how everything goes, I'll keep posted.

    Vpather, glad you got back in. Thanks for the info rlarcia. I tried it as well, the infected characters seemed to keep same timing as the uninfected characters. Keep me posted on the update. I've noticed EA staff seem to not have much presence on the forum, so it looks like the communication is up to the user base.


    Update: just checked their Facebook presence and they indeed had an outage and are working on "upgrades" so expect more "intermittent outages" as they deploy the upgrades tonight.

    Not working for me now... Telling me to log in but saying my account is new but I can log in here with that acocunt just fine...

    It tells me to log in so I do with my email but then it says "Create Account" instead of logging me into the game.

    The same here, asking me to create a NEW account. C'mon EA, you better have not screwed it up! 4 days left from my 90 day crops and bought donuts!

    Same thing with me. I'm hoping this is just indicative of Origin being down yet again, but it's kind of unsettling. Jeez, it's as though I'm always holding my breath when I play this game,waiting for the inevitable disaster. :cry:
