  • Robyn

    I didn’t hear about that.. Woukdnt surprise me. Seems Amazon has their hands in everything these days..

  • Gary

    ya it’s been down near 5 hours here in Ireland can’t even get a proper response from EA or orgin support via email or phone they just keep telling me that there servers a fine that nothings wrong but obviously there is iv even uninstaled and reinstalled the game and nothing changes same problem

  • Robyn

    Ireland!! Well first- a warm HELLO!! Ireland is #1 on my bucket list!!
    Secondly- Ea is notoriously bad when it comes to customer service. Obviously something is wrong. The servers aren’t” responding” all over the world”.. I just sent them a note to at least look here for further complaints and to post here to give us some kind of information. We at Tapped Out are losing valuable time on our quests! Lol

  • Donna

    Hi just tried it again, all working even my partners is on line x

  • Gary

    Lol hello to u to I know they need to have some contact with fans to let them know what’s happening I’m so sick of seeing the notorious Bart screen lol not playing that long only a few months but have become addicted to it now and can’t even get on and as u said fans all over the world can’t get on with no explanation Wat so ever it’s such bs

  • Gary

    I just got back on

  • Gary

    As of 11:41pm in Ireland tapped out is back online

  • 22windsong

    Me neither. Which is another reason I’m rather aggravated with it. I haven’t tried logging in again yet for tonight, so we shall see. Based on more recent comments, it doesn’t look too hopeful. But it varies every single time. I think the worst one was when everything kept crashing for like a week, I think it was. Though things have drastically improved since then. But if Amazon is having issues as well, which I also didn’t know about until just now, who knows exactly what’s going on or for how long it’ll go?

  • Verl Humpherys

    The 2019 Halloween downloaded supposedly but there isn’t any update in the game. The cover has changed to Halloween but no gaming. Used both iPad and phone and have same problem on both devices. Is it my account or is everyone having this problem?

  • Linda brock

    I’m having the same problems, only the start screen is different game
    Play is the same. On iPad and Kendal.

  • Briana

    So every time I try to login and play it says I have to download an additional 985mb update although I already had installed the first updates and had played without issues till after the Halloween update had installed. Whatever is wrong I’m not going to constantly keep downloading the same update over and over
