Hey all,

 

The Spore.com website has been taken offline for maintenance, access to the site including Sporepedia will be unavailable during this time.

 

Spore will remain playable offline until the maintenance is complete. We aim to have the service back online as soon as possible.

 

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Update: Maintenance has concluded at this time and online functionality has been restored. If you are still experiencing issues with Spore/Sporepedia please contact us at https://help.ea.com/en/help/faq/using-ea-help/

Spore.com and Spore servers are down

★ Guide

Hello! Since Wednesday I can't access both Spore.com and the online services in the game. Is anyone also facing this issue? I used to access the MySpore page and Sporepedia normally until then.

The webpage reads as maintenance I've not been able to find any official response on the topic.

The website & logging into the client is down.

 

I will e-mail EA Support on Monday and try live chat if it's available

Right now, if you try to browse spore.com, it will return the next message: "We're doing some scheduled maintenance. Spore.com will be back soon!"

So my guess was correct)

That's not what I get. I get the message "This site cannot be reached. Spore.com took too long to respond."

I emailed someone at Maxis yesterday, they're no longer on the team that maintains Spore servers, but that team has been notified. Seems like they're doing some work now.

 

For Spore, the website is actually running directly on the same server used for the game's online features, so if one goes down, everything goes down. Yesterday they switched www.spore.com to point to a temporary server that just shows a maintenance page, instead of the currently-offline game server.

 

Unsure if this was planned maintenance or a glitch. Apparently there was some maintenance related to Spore and Sims 3 servers, so this might've been part of it, but not completely sure. If I hear back anything further from Maxis I will post it here.
