Disconnect when trying to view friends.

I had the exact same problem & fixed it by deleting some friends. After that I was able to get in. You can delete some friends and then add them back again. I had around 50 total friends & just deleted everyone starting with A. The game came back online & so far no problems.

Before I did this I deleted & re-installed but that didn't work. Even talked to tech support & they just suggested the un/re-install option. Before this happened I lost all my donuts. Did that happen to you at all?

    I cannot access any of my friends and I cannot get in there to delete any. Any attempt to visit friends' Springfield bumps me off the server. This is so annoying....when is it going to be fixed???

    I get booted immediately, but I found that if I repeatedly press in the lower left hand corner I can get into the Origin settings.

    The orange donut on the bottom left of the screen is only visible for one nanosecond. There was no way for me to snag/open it.

    I can't seem to add any friends. When I click on 'find friends' and add my friend's username, it says: 'results loading' for ages and then boots me out.
    Please add me: ledietoscano

    I read this post after I had the same problem. Dude...you are a genius! Thank you for saving my game. I erased more than ten friends just to be sure, and it worked! Advice was much appreciated. I have not been able to re-add those friends, or add any friends since then for that matter. Kind of sucky, but I have my game back and I can add people who request me by invite. Not a bad trade. Thanks again. Blessings and peace be upon you. Luvispower: daily player extrodinaire.

    I have deleted about 8 friends but my problem still exists. I now know that the problem is not with my ipad and not with my router. A friend of mine who can successfully play "Tapped Out" on his ipad signed in to his origin account on my ipad and had no problems. I in turn signed in to my account on his ipad and still had the same problems. I cannot connect with my friends and I am forever being bumped off of the server. How come EA or someone does not openly address this problem with me/us? I am sure it is affecting many game players in addition to me. I am considering deleting this now annoying game.

    Download Monopoly Hotels if you haven't already and use it to scroll through your list of friends. People suggest just randomly deleting people but that's not going to fix the problem. Let the friends list load until it shows the last time each friend logged in. Go through it and delete those friends that haven't logged in the longest. I couldn't access my friends either and was getting disconnected all the time so I scrolled through my friends list and found that 4 people haven't logged in in a week. I deleted them and now the game is back to normal with no outages. In the past I would delete random people at the suggestion of others and it never fixed the problem but going by who hasn't logged in in the longest time always fixes any problem in trying to access other towns.
