Every online community is beating the EA hate-train to death. I think headshot just wants somewhere to be able to talk about the game itself, not EA's shitshow.

In other news, ARINOTH I got your abandoned server to 180k people with a million in the bank.

Suck it!

That is my thinking too. He is free to praise the game (I'm sure it's a good game) till the cows won't have it.

With good reason. You don't take a piss on your customers and not expect reprisal.

Wow.
Yes, what good are you doing here? Wow. You arent conversing you're saying "I HATE EA." "I HATE ONLINE DRM" "LOOK AT THIS PICTURE OF A SUPPORT CONVERSATION".

This is what it's like:

Maybe we should have separate threads for Sim city gameplay and Sim city servers/bugs/EA?

Would you rather you remain ignorant of the issue? I think you would. Fine. Skip over the relevant facts. BTW, why attack the messenger?

ARE YOU FKING WITH ME. Read my post, I'm not shooting any messenger. I'm well aware of that picture you posted, since I browse reddit where you would've seen that posted last night (where it was originally posted). I've probably have seen more shit about the issue then you have. Direct your pitchfork to Origin Support instead of bringing this circle jerk of hating DRM and EA into here. I already said I don't like it and it sucks of course but CMAN. What else is there to say.

I just didn't have the patience to fix the problems with it while working on another city. Like I said it probably just needed someone to spend the time and 'resources' to fix it and turn it into a profitable mining city.

Did you previous city get abandoned so Headshot can claim it?

I should be running my revamped electronics city into some nice profits this evening.

Just the lack of servers for this game is amazing or backup plan to launch more upon demand. Lots of people bought the game and they didn't provide the back end to deal with there always on drm policy. Just a pure penny pinch.
