Obviously someone in upper mgmt. It looks like the corporate strategy for SimCity was to follow BF3, but totally blew up in their faces. EA has addressed the CEO, lets see if they go in a more gamer friendly direction.

They had to hire servers, etc...You can bet that the higher ups knew of this, if not, EA is in much more trouble than we realize.

There's a topic here.. Discuss that.


Tpi2007 shared his opinion on not blocking him, which I respect. I simply shared my reasoning why I decided to. Other people are probably fed up with his posts as well.

If you don't like what I have to say feel free to block me. No hard feelings.

Okay reopened.
I don't like repeating myself but like I said before, keep it civil in here. I don't want to see any dramas

Thanks

Heh, I think I might actually get this game. What I first thought was going to be a locked down server run game might be turning out into one of the more modable games to be released in recent days...at least out of a major publisher.

Ok so I have SimCity and no internet for my PC, only for my phone.

What is it exactly that you're supposed to do with this code to make the game play offline? I try to open SimCity and it automatically tries to connect and then tells me I don't have an internet connection and closes. How do I actually use this to play offline? I would really like to play SimCity but with no internet, it's not an option. Damn EA -_-

You have to go online to to get in to the city, then you disconnect. And import/export will cease to work, region trade will cease to work, and you are limited to playing that one city and then you have to reconnect to save. So no, offline has not been made available.

Draconian DRM! I loved older games like Diablo 2, C&C red alert etc when my friends and I used to "link up" and play without having to deal with server lag etc. Unless you are playing a true MMO like EQ or WoW where the game is geared to be played online, games should offer single player. Even SC2 when it came out made you connect to its server, which made no sense.

I vote with my wallet and refuse to buy these games.
