EA has had issues with server crashes during launch
(EA) announced today that it will add more servers for its "SimCity" launch period in order to prevent further issues.
"What we are doing is deploying more servers over the coming two days which will alleviate many of the ongoing issues," said senior producer Kip Katsarellis on the EA forum. "We are also paying close attention to all the bug reports we are receiving from our fans. We've already pushed several updates in the last few days. Our live ops team is working 24/7 to resolve issues and ensure that bug fixes roll into the game as quickly as possible."
is an online-only game published by EA. It was released in North America on Tuesday, and was released in Europe today. It will make its way to the UK tomorrow.
While EA said there would be no server issues earlier this week, that didn't turn out to be the case as servers crashed at international launch. Many gamers on Facebook, forums, etc. have voiced their frustrations.
"Want to fix SimCity EA? Get rid of the stupid DRM and servers!" said one Facebook user. "We don't need them to play a single player game."

I don't understand why coders are working for them, surely they feel embarrassed that there name is in any way linked to this game or any others that EA botches, i know i would be looking for a job where people are not left with the opinion that i am a bad coder. If i was not in on the profit of the game in any way i would be out of there, let the clever ceo that promoted drm find someone who can fix it all when bugs start coming out of the seams.
This is all bullshit about the servers by the way, they are just hoping that the stampeded to download and update the game will fall and the few servers they have will be enough, imagine that, a few thousand dollars and the problems could go away, but no they give themselves the threat of a lawsuit from all the angry gamers that were looking so forward to this game.Keep your eyes open i suspect there is going to be a huge claim made by gamers because of this, I would not be surprised if people bought into the game knowing they will be getting compensation as this is not something that they did not know was going to happen they knew it and refuse to do anything about it other than wait for the excited fans to stop trying to play it. And that is fraud.
