*Tsk!* And Sean Decker came to us from EA... Is it true, EA was voted worse company of the year twice in a row? And CCP has picked up Sean Decker, formerly of EA?

Maybe I worry over noting, eh?

Watch this space.  New exciting signature in development.

He's an amateur at ballsups compared to CCPs Hilmar and Zulupark Twisted

After the launch issues on PC you'd have thought EA would have at least tested the game on a Mac before going retail on it Roll

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

I actually the new SimCity, unfortunately EA's servers are so unreliable I've resorted to using a rather naughty local server, as in on my own PC, to play.

It comes to something when you're forced to use cracks to play a game you purchased.

With EA that is entirely possible.

Never happens. Ever. Not with EA. Never.

oops, my post appears to be missing a word. It should read "I actually bought", or is that "I accidentally bought"? I'm not sure anymore Cry

Going by the performance of it, it's still in beta. The servers are unreliable, the updates often break more than they introduce and going by both the PC and Mac releases they have no ideas about actually testing things before release.

It's high time for EA to file for bankruptcy... seriously... that may be hard for the people working there, but this "company" - and it's idiotic business practices - have been damaging the games industry for decades now, killing off more then one great, innovative development company along the way... everything because they made a boat load of money of their stupid, rediculously lucrative sports games that are basically the same products sold each year. Roll

As long as they make money... they will stay in business.

Well, if you'd stop accidentally'ing SimCity, they might be able to fix it... No wonder the servers keep falling over!

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short. But scream it at them in Esperanto, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

Don't worry guys. EA will release a DLC that will fix all the bugs for only 19.99$. Of yourse, you will also need to buy the other DLC that will fix the first DLC.
