EA's response to The Simpsons: Tapped Out loading issues

★★★★ Novice

Like many of you I have not been able to play the game for this past week. The HoD issue, is not going to be resolved quickly or before the Valentine's Day event is over.  I have tried every fix on the forums, and humored EA trying them again the help center staff told me.  So after several days of correspondences and getting no where, I received the following message.  I have worked in the IT field for years and I know their customer service model is not acceptable, but does anyone out there think 1-2 weeks wait time is reasonable?  I would like to know if EA corporate staff are aware of this wait time for customers?
