I'm just waiting for some sort of "SimQueue" meme to pop up.

Games should work on the release day, at least to some extent.
Yep, but they never do. Release day is a new form of beta that's just how it is.

Lol @ people complaining or expecting a game to run properly on release day. Have you not learned anything from the last couple years?
More like "lol @ people expecting a game from EA that won't screw you #realtalk"

Something I've noticed: every single video game news site is reporting all these server issues. Except for one company, which has never mentioned it: IGN. Hmm...

That's because IGN is the only good review site left. Not like these wannabe reviewers on scrub sites taking payments under the table *LOOKS AT RABIDCHINAGIRL SUSPICIOUSLY*

This is why I don't go near EA games

What? DRM blocking out paid players? Just another day at the office!

Protip; If your DRM is blocking out more paid players than pirate players, you're doing it wrong.

@ Nick Yes. Queue times are still multiple hours in some regions, still some odd bugs once in-game regarding connectivity. Also heard folk saying that EA's servers aren't syncing maps, so people are losing hours of progress.

I was linked this today, thought it rather apt considering that there's still problems, like two days after release;

It's luxury the likes of you will never taste.

never been able to play SimCity for a couple of days but it's okay now. Kudos to Maxis for being able to address, at least, majority of the server issues.
