Won't load

Prev1
What kind of device are you using? Have you tried to restart the device itself?

    Try removing all your friends from Origin's website. I seem to remember a bug from 6-8 months ago where the game would crash and would be fixed with the offending friend's removal.

    Same issue with me this afternoon. No issues at all this morning, now this afternoon it launches the Gracie films/ea screen and immediately quits out. For a second it loaded the load screen and also immediately crashed. I've never experienced any of the previous issues aside from server overloads when new large updates are launched like Christmas and Valentines.

    I also just tried to install it fresh on my iPhone, never had before, and it won't go past the EA screen before crashing their either. In this case I would not have been previously signed in either.

    I am also having problems loading the game. I have not had any connection issues in a long time, and have not had the "harp" glitch. My game worked fine last night, but I have not been able to play all day. I get through the load screen most times, and into my town for about 5 seconds before it freezes and crashes. I've tried restarting my phone (Iphone), logging out of my account, closing the game... nothing has worked. No harp noises, no network errors. My husband is able to get into his game fine all day. I tried logging into my account on his phone and my game still crashed.

    Anyone having similar issues or know how to fix this?

    Just switched off wifi on the phone and it started loading a 75 mb update. Must be a wifi issue. I don't have the data plan to let the update load though. Gonna have to wait until I'm back on my home network and wee if that makes a difference.

    Don't know if this matters for others seeing this problem, when I turn off wifi on my iPad (wifi iPad only) the game actually goes beyond the EA screen and loads the "it's your fault we cannot connect screen). When I turn wifi back on though it eventually kicks me off before ever loading. It has to be some odd wifi issue. I am also on a network that is not my home network so ill be curious to see what happens tomorrow eve.

    Likewise - IPad 3 and iPhone 4S. The game won't load. No problems this morning. I reset the IPad and I get to see the screen then it crashes.
    Not sure why it is suddenly a problem

    Has anyone tried deleting all their friends on the Origin site to fix this?

    I deleted the app on my IPad and then IPhone and tried reinstalling it. When downloading the updates it crashes on update 1/57 at about 20mb so app now won't even load.

    So, I shouldn't try to uninstall and install the app? I can't even collect money from one mission before the game crashes :(

    Would not advise uninstall / reinstall as download of update crashes.

    Same thing happening to me. Deleted it and re-downloaded the app. Started it up for it to try and download 200mb of updates. Why EA can't just make the app on iTunes have the updates is beyond me. App crashed after 30mb. EA should have learned by now that they can't run games based on their servers. This is a relatively small game and it is unstable. Then they decide to make Sim City a server based game and look how well that turned out and on top of all of this, Origin has a major security issue. EA should stick to stand alone games and stop trying to use servers, or at the very least, use someone's servers that are more reliable.

    Mine never worked yesterday but this morning it was working again and is still working. Hopefully it's fixed. I have no idea what was wrong or how it got fixed.... maybe it's just a matter of waiting it out.

    Had something similar a week after i recovered from the harp glitch/donut glitch (so presumably when i levelled up again) I was out for 3 weeks, only cured by the level 27 update (missed all of the * paddys event)
