Origin sucks!

SLOW NETWORK

We're sorry, your game library could not be loaded. Please try again in a few minutes.

Edit: Got origin to load, but it's not downloading simcity. Says game is unreleased.....................weird

you would think when releasing a game 10 years after the last they would maybe anticipate a little bit of server load....

You apparently run out of room to build extremely quickly. 6 blocks is NOT a city.

This is a city:

Doesn't matter. The size of the map is not being changed due the simulated city also being run on a server you're connected to along with everyone else, this makes for a big problem as making the city sizes bigger quickly multiplies the load on the servers. EA claim it's our computers that can't handle the additional load, this is complete nonsense: reports are that it doesn't even come close to stressing folks PC's so it's either DLC or server side load.

Hmm, time to see if this is really worth it.

Just got back in to Sim City 4 and I can see myself going back if things simply aren't that great... like map sizes. While I don't want to create a megatropolis, I want to get a decent amount of houses, flats, offices and factories all on one bit.

I understand the region thing but you can't build one region full of houses and expect the sims to jump region to work can you?

I do like the dumb humor in this game. One of the businesses is 'Brool Story, Co' and one was 'Discount Viscount' and stuff like that.

Still waiting for my key from Green Man Gaming so I can pre-load it :/

Tomb Raider came out today, so why can't Sim City handle world wide simultaneous release?
