Crashing after Stonecutters (4.9) Update

    My game worked for about a week when the stonecutter update came out, then it stopped. I am so very tired of this. I am giving it ONE more week then I hope it is fixed and we the loyal customers are given a very good form of compensation (20 donuts is a pittance and an insult) I am think a good way to compensate us the customers, would be to extend the stonecutter update for another 2 weeks, then either give everyone 50 donuts, or give us 25 donuts and cut the cost of ALL the stonecutter items in half.

    If EA games can't get this game fixed, how can we the consumer have confidence in them for larger games?

    Last week, game started to periodically freeze. Waiting 10-15 seconds typically fixed it but it would occasionally crash and I would need to login again.

    Sunday early AM I logged in successfully - I had planned to finish getting the stonecutter bonus item with bonus donuts on Monday. When I went to login later Sunday morning (approx 11 AM EST) the game would no longer start. Now it always crashes during the start-up screen.

    Update 4.9.4 currently
    Gt-n8013 samsung galaxy note 10.1 tablet

    crashing started approximately after lag patch. Progressively gotten worse. From crashes only once in a long while during friend town visits, to todays crashes even after minutes of idling. Crashes when exiting, crashes when idling, crashes after freezing, crashes during friend visits. Cant go 5 minutes without crashes.

    ****EA Can fix the crashing towns issue***

    You can get this issue fixed, but it requires you to be persistant in contacting EA through their customer service. I was able to get them to restore my town to a previous state, and I also had them compensate me with the 27,000 stonecutter emblems that I missed out on. Here's what I did:

    -I opened a ticket with live chat, and spoke to the low level assistant. I told them my issue and explained it was a server side save file issue, not a device issue.
    -I told them I had completed all of the recommended device fixes that EA has instructed me and determined that it was not a device problem.
    -I kept insisting that I needed an EXPERT level assistant to restore my town on the server.

    Eventually they escalated me to expert level where they restored my town. They added 20 donuts as compensation, to which I replied with a strongly worded e-mail that stated that 20 donuts was wildly underwhelming as a compensation and that I just wanted the 27,000 emblems that i missed out on, because i could not play the game for 20 days.

    30 mins later i got an e-mail that stated they gave me the 27,000 stone cutter emblems.

    I hope this helps anyone who has this crashing issue.

    **To be clear, they can fix the issue where your town cannot load AT ALL. If your town loads, then crashes, you are having a separate issue. There are many different issues people are having within this thread, its not all related to the same thing.

    I've been having the same issues as everyone else. When I log in the app crashes. I have tried Un installing and reinstalling. Doesn't seem to work. Friends who try to visit my town are not able to as well. Please fix asap.

    My game has been crashing continually less than 5 minutes every time no matter where I am in the game, visiting friends, krustyland, or my main town. Sometimes it crashes 2seconds in, sometimes 3minutes in. It started LONG before this update and the last updates for "lag" fixes. It's been going on for well over 6 months now with no fix in sight. Maybe they should fix bugs instead of just adding content continually?

    The crashing constantly makes it almost impossible to play this game as it takes a minute to load, and crashes within seconds sometimes.. Most of the time I'm not even through collecting my income before i'm booted back to my Home screen.

    I started having crashing issues (crashed every time on press play to continue ) over three weeks ago and it was only today that it was finally fixed. I was given 50 donuts as compensation but that's pretty laughable considering it would cost me well over 1000 donuts to get the last prize. I'm a daily player since this game was first released and was on pace to finish the event with more than a week to spare. The one prize I really wanted was the Stonecutters Table and thanks to EA's crappy server errors I now won't get.

    Following some suggestions in this thread I did a live chat with customer support. They told me they'll escalate the ticket and maybe compensate me with the table. Would have been nice if they gave me the emblems for all those weeks that I missed but with the event ending in less than three hours that won't be happening. Anyway I won't be holding my breath.

    The only advice I can offer to people who are still having the same crashing problems is to go straight to live chat. My issue could have been fixed a week earlier if I didn't waste time waiting for generic e-mail replies. Live Chat support also has the ability to roll back your game to an earlier state. Might help some, although didn't help me but the main thing is to get it escalated as soon as possible.
    Good luck to everyone who is still experiencing this issue. EA needs to seriously work on a more timely response for these things.

    Keep getting "Cannot Connect to Server or I get the game to load and then get knocked off again. Sometimes it just locks up at the load page. I play on a Kindle Fire. Every time there is a major update, I have problems. I have to keep downloading and go through all the updates every few days. I love the game, but it gets very frustrating. :(

    It looks like a lot of people are having an issue where the game doesn't start or crashes when loading. Let's help EA gather info about the issue below. If your affected by the crashing go ahead and leave a reply with your device information, confirmation that your on the latest update and when the issue started.

    On ipad mini, after todays update, when i start app, screen goes blank then get bart pulling plug, can't connect to server. Click retry, and gets right in game. Constently getting that can't connect on the first goaround.

    iPad 3

    Load loads ok and doesn't crash but freeze when I try to build ANY building. I have been playing this game for over 2 years - spend heaps of money on it - and now it's unplayable.

    Spoke to EA online and gave them my user name and password so they could have a look at it - but I haven't heard anything back.

    So disappointing as I really loved playing this game. Missed the stone cutters challenges completely :(

    On BlackBerry Z30 (Running Android version of Tapped Out . Fully updated. I was forced to upgrade tapped out around noon Pacific Time today crashes a few seconds after signed in and trying to sync.

    If I log out and start using without an origin account it works fine.

    Un-installed the game and removed all data files. restarted the phone and installed a fresh copy. Now when I login it says I'm signed in on another device and I continue I will lose what hasn't been synced.

    I click continue, another warning pops up and say are you sure (along those lines and I click ok / continue.

    Then the spinning donut appears, freezes a couple of times then it crashes again

    I signed out of Origin and I can play a new game from level 0 again just fine and very snappy fast as well.

    Please fix! :(
