Well I think I abandoned Straussberg Isles (I had renamed it Ft. MacMurray) after it locking up and then returing with "city is processing, try later" then I got rollback/abandon and rollback didnt work. Now It says I can claim it (to start over or continue after the error) but when I claim it it joins me as a spectator...... So if someone wants to be a pal and claim/abandon it then maybe I can get it back..... otherwise I'm lookin to abandon my first city if I cant get the interconnecting between the two to work...... might leave the region for a day or two to play elsewhere or my own region for a bit.

Got down to a 1 minute wait time and then back to 400 mins....I need to actually do other things.

Is there a way to get a refund other than waiting on hold for 4-5 hours? Do I have to resort to a credit card hold?

I am annoyed. And its mostly my fault. I want this game, its basically the game I've been looking for for a little while now. A little more casual than the other games in my library at the moment but I will not compromise my principles for it. 1) its an EA game and 2) its always online. The 2nd one is admittedly the bigger hold up for me.

at the same time I'm glad I'm not involved in this massive cluster **** that is origin. When will companies learn that they can avoid all of these problems 1 by removing the always online and 2 by preloading

Pollution would go down if we stopped using coal/oil power plants :P But I have a slight radiation issue since an earthquake nuked my powerplant.

I don't want to troll this thread but last night I reloaded SimCity 4 with a bunch of mods from Simtropolis and I'm back in SimCity heaven.
