Servers overwhelmed? can't log on tapped out

★★★★ Newbie


I've been trying to log on for more than 24 hours but failed. It says server can't be reached

I used donuts to get the penultimate item for this event and i was planning to get as close as possible to baby Gerard goal and use more donuts to get him but now that i can't log on, i can't reduce the number of required donuts and i can't play at all.

Am i the only one with this problem? it's so frustrating really.

I'm not going to use all my donuts on that last item so i'm giving up on that character but i don't want to give up on that game.

I really hope it'll be fixed at some point?

Close your game.

Pull up the App Manager and swipe the game away.

Turn off your device.

Turn off your internet hardware - wireless router, modem, etc.

Wait 15 to 30 seconds.

Turn your internet hardware back on.

Start your device.

Start the game.

That usually fixes it.
