There's a MONSTER update out there now - about 2 Gigs

The extreme zoom out view is gone

I think that I'm going to have to take Simpsons off my tablet. I have it on my phone and tablet and it takes up too much hard drive space on the tablet.

I just had a small in-game update. I think that is a sign that you don't have enough space on your device for the game's liking.

It's HUGE. Almost a gb.

Looks like some halfway decent prizes, but the same 3-act thing we get all the time. At least so far.

Snow gets removed.

This event, while not sucking, still somehow sucks.

Started out promising and then nothing more happened. Tedious.

I've only been playing for the mid-level rewards -- so far General Bart and Prepper Lindsay Naegle.

Hmm, somehow I missed that. I may have gotten it and tapped through or just missed that it was telling me that I got them.

Has anyone else been having trouble logging on? I can't connect to the EA servers ever since last night. I've checked on multiple devices.

I can connect in Chicago, but it looks like UK / Europe servers especially are having problems. The US to a much smaller extent, but some problems here too.

I am also in Chicago and I can get in. I did get booted last night around 9, got the message that I was logged in elsewhere (I was not), and had to log back in but it looks OK since then (knock on wood).

Whatever that was ended today (who at EA thinks another skin for Burns is a good final prize???)

And there's a new update in the appstores. Looks to be a lowkey mini event. Homer starts.

New update in app stores. Event doesn't start till 2GMT the 21st.

Since iOS has been really slow at putting updates in the store, pre-loading it with a start time later is a great improvement.

We'll see how the event actually is.

Looking at the new event a bit this morning. It really looks like a re-skinned Battle Royale. Hope, I'm wrong and they have some new interesting mechanic.

Pretty much yeah. But I'm ok with that since there's a lot of new characters this time, which is what I care about.

I am disappointed that the call boxes have a siren sound when you tap them. I was really hoping to hear the TARDIS wooshing.

Seems to be widespread. I had to restart my phone, then it tried to log me in under the name of '1'.

I hit logout and then it let me login under my usual account. I got a server can't be reached message a few times and then I finally got in.

There's an update in the app stores. I couldn't log in until I updated, then I had to do my age and login again and then I was fine.

A new something is starting. I guess a small mini update today or tomorrow, another big event next week. It's not even worth like discussing strategies or talking about OMG NEW EVENT because there's always a new event now and the format is exactly the same.

I deleted the app and reinstalled it, and that worked. Took a looooooong time to install all the updates - don't do this unless you're on wi-fi.

The update was a teaser for a bigger event. Bigger event hasn't started yet but probably will sometime in the next week. Sure hope it breaks the boring formula of the last couple of events.

They seem to be running out of good items to offer as prizes, too. I'd say that the game can't go on forever, but obviously the show has....

The show has GOT to end soon, right? I mean, they broke all the records that can conceivably be done. They have go stop someday... I'm guessing Apu will be relegated to background now, so there's another character down (the recent wall of all of Ned's dead ex wives was really funny) after Edna. Not Simpson family, but major characters whose absences are/would be felt.

And you can hear in the voices that the actors are not 28 anymore. They're all starting to sound like Lunch Lady Doris (another long-gone person whose hole wasn't filled). Dan's not going to have to "do" Abe's voice soon. He's just going to *be* Abe.

Not that I want it gone, but man, I can't believe it's STILL going.
