Players are reporting that they are getting a frequent appearance of the popup message, "There was a problem with the game Connection". Other players report that they cannot load the game at all today.
We are aware of the problem and we will be working to get the problem fixed very shortly.
Please be patient as we get the loading and connection issues under control.
There is no need to submit a ticket about this issue, as our player advocates cannot correct the problem for you.
