Glitchy Black Friday Deals!

Black Friday 2015 and its deals have landed today but some mysterious happenings are going on in the game, weird glitches. One occuring in the store and one with towns empty of any sign over buildings. Follow us right after the jump for the details.
Store

The first glitch suddendly happened during the Thanksgiving event, it’s a major glitch, preventing the buying of the Thanksgiving items and sometimes of the Black Friday promo too!

Normally the menu appears like this:
Store

But suddendly we get this screen:
Store glitched

And opening the arrow menu, opens up the menu that sometimes (if lucky) has both icons for Thanksgiving and Black Friday, sometimes only Black Friday (my case) and sometimes none of them!
Store glitched 2

Unfortunatly at the moment there’s nothing we can do other then hope EA fixes it. If it happened to you please report it to EA forum by clicking here and here.


The second glitch is occurring to everyone, everytime Gil shows up, every hour, notifying us of new items in the deals, the icons over our buildings to collect the payout disappears.
Empty town

However, there’s a fix for this one: by going to Krustyland, or a friend town (even simply visiting the friend towns screen), and coming back, all the icons will be back.

Please post on EA forum by clicking here and here to be sure EA fixes this bug quicker.

Update: This glitch was fixed for the duration of Black Friday. It wasn’t fixed on Cyber Monday sales on November 30th.


he third glitch someone reported occurs with the Thanksgiving quest stuck, which seems rarer.
Pt. 3

This prevents the user from continuing, showing the jobs done but progress can’t be done.

The only way to fix it is to be sure Homer is absolutely free, or trying to send him on the job again, trying force closing the game and reopening and reinstalling the game.

Contact EA directly following the link below, and post on the EA Forum your problem.

Joins us next time for more info on this update, happy tapping (hopefully)!

  1. Do we have to wait for the sale to end to receive the donut rebate? Was it supposed to be automatic? If so, I paid full price for disco stu and did not get 75 donuts back.

  2. That’s not all that is amiss! My Springfield is gone!!! Completely gone. And now there has been too much turkey. So I now have no energy left to figure it out and the big bird gets his revenge.
