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'm interested in this game, but will pass. BF3 is about as much as I can handle from EA regarding DRM, Origin, price tiering and obvious neglect to fix bugs and hacks viewable on YouTube for weeks.
EA is destroying developers.
