I can confirm that this is still working. Try reinstalling BlueStacks and check your Store Settings / 1-Click Sync Settings.
BlueStacks tends to throw these 1-Click Sync - Popups at you while starting a game causing it to close.
Thanks for the quick response and the support man for a minute there I was a bit worried that EA updated the game again. I did some digging and it turns out my bluestacks was causing the error (I tried the original apk from google play and it didn't work either). Turns out the latest version of bluestacks has a few issues with TSTO, so I opted to change versions and BOOM, I'm back in business
credits to J.Doe from the Bluestacks forums for pointing this out and providing the appropriate version for TSTO --> Blustacks ver 0.7.7.819
For users having the same issues with bluestacks, you can download version 0.7.7.819
