I wish they gave warnings if they were doing upgrades or tweaks on the servers. This getting a little annoying.
It looks like you're new here. Sign in or register to get started.
I just want to play the game!!
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..
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.
