I doubt the worst company in America is the one selling video games to overly sensitive narcissistic annoying kids.

There are companies out there slaughtering baby seals just for their skins, and even worst.
Your "cause" is stupid, and you're not a victim.

We get it, you don't like EA or simcity. Move on.


I don't mind the baby seal thing anyway.

But if we stick to purely gaming companies, EA is among the best companies out there as far as the big publishers go at any rate. All the ther big publishers are worst, granted there's pretty much just three of them, EA, Ubi, and Activision. there's another one, but they're comparatively small,and their sub divisions keep going bankrupt.

Apart from scaramonga acting like a complete douche troll, he is kind of right on the EA thing.

There's a reason they're called "The Evil Empire" (capitalisation for emphasis).

The Zero Punctuation review rather hammers home why that's so in this case >.>

When Ubisoft repeatedly has issues with even playing single player for a week after launch, people forget about it after a few weeks. When Activison doesn't even bother putting resources into PC development and Blizzard repeatedly screws up their online only launches, it's ok because everyone wants their stuff. When EA does something wrong people will be bitching about it for ten years or more (hell I have friends still bitching about them killing Ultima.)

It gets a little ridiculous.

You realise the problem with your position is that you are in such a minority that you're the guy on the inside accusing every body else of being crazy..

People remember the other companies ****ups. The reason people keep bringing up EAs is that they do it repeatedly whilst showing blistering contempt for their users.

Other companies do it too (Ubisoft is a good example) but not with the dedication and regularity EA ass it up.

I don't have to accuse. We're all human. We're all crazy. :p :)

Anyone else have this problem? Every single time I start SimCity I have to do the stupid tutorial...... EVERY FREAKING TIME! *RIPS HAIR OUT*

on top of that, no mater how long I play, every time I exit, I get some stuff wasn't synced with the server... why doesn't it do a sync as the last action of a game exist?!

I don't get the tutorial everytime but I do get the some stuff wasn't synced with the server when I exit.

They need a skip tutorial button, because that tutorial is ridiculously long for someone who has done it before... such a waste of time

It should only be the first time you load up a server, so that's odd. (Unfortunately starts up for every server seperately, not just one time.)

The tutorial should only start everytime you switch your server. If for some reason all of your server information is lost, that could cause that. If you don't let the game sync for example, it can corrupt your game and make the server think you don't have any legitmate saves on the server. That makes you a new player and means you have to do the tutorial.

For your synced question, you have to remember that the game is trying to constantly sync but not every second or that would just make the server issues worse. It does it every few seconds or minutes. I don't know what the timer is but it is long enough that you can unplug your internet and the game will continue for a bit before complaining. If there is a heavy server load, it takes longer to sync, so the chances of that message appearing goes up when you exit. There are times where I see it every time such as in the evening. During those same times, the chat in the region has a 5-10 second delay. During the middle of the day when less people are playing due to school/work, I have neither the sync issue or the chat issue. Just always make sure you don't close out the program without letting it sync first. It is the easiest way to completely lose your city.

The tutorial "Bug" is being fixed, I think its in the next patch


Pretty sure the longest the game can go without checking in is about 20 minutes, from looking at some of the file edits people have done
