I don't get why they didn't give the game out during the time people couldn't play Sim City not after the problems have been fixed.

Error 37... coincidently the amount of hours people have been waiting to get onto a server.

Nevertheless, if EA wasn't so forceful with their 'always on, store everything in the cloud' idea in the first place, this wouldn't have happened.

Hopefully fixes and features will be added and re-added soon. The game works but now it feels incomplete.

The good news is that tens of thousands of new players are streaming into the game every day and the confidence our fans have shown is truly humbling.
How many of these "new players" are really just people who bought it on launch and couldn't play until now?

And to get us back in your good graces, we’re going to offer you a free PC download game from the EA portfolio. On March 18, SimCity players who have activated their game will receive an email telling them how to redeem their free game.

This is one way Maxis can show it's really, really sincere in its apologies. Did Maxis not know SimCity has become so popular and have gained millions of gamer fans around the world? Clearly, server issues arise when there wasn't not much preparation done server-side.

But it's always a good thing problems show during launch so the developer and publisher would immediately know the problem and rectify it. So far, Maxis has dona good job in addressing SimCity problems and server errors.

As much as there is to blame in this entire ordeal, it's sad to think that Maxis was the one to really suffer here. SimCity is a great game, brought down by decisions that were probably out of their control
