I tried making a game in sanbox mode.

"Unable to create city"

Why? Is there something I'm missing?

I have never complained about always on, ever. However if that is the cause, then it needs to ****ing go. If I go into sandbox mode, create my own city, and make it private, it means I want to play alone. **** their severs.

Look back a few years, now look at today. We have 'pirates' to thank for that, and EA of course ;)

Naw, I blame EA wholeheartedly

I tried multiple servers and nothing. This blows. They need to figure something out or I will fight for a refund.

EDIT:

Have been trying since 10PM eastern time. An hour and a half later, still cannot play.

Just be aware, that if you do manage to create anything, you need to be on SAME server to load and play it ;) Switch, and you will have to start again, or try and load same server to get your game back :)

Wonderful EA 'cloud' and always on DRM, gotta luv em lol!

Unfortunately yup, and all explained in these two vids:

Beware of EA! Game is good, but severely crippled by a few factors.

Get ready for the 'We never expected this game to be so popular, that is why users cant play, here is a free DLC, apologies' on the front page of Neowin, and everywhere else.

:laugh:

Sorry guys to make it worse for you all... I am a UK guy, got my key yesterday from Green Man Gaming for the UK release. Connected to a VPN in America and it has unlocked and is downloading as we speak!

Stupid EA is being slow it the downloads though - just ditch Origin and stick with Steam, EA!

That is pretty much what they said so far, minus the DLC part. Fortunately, I was able to hold my temptation to both pre-order and buy at midnight. After going through the Diablo 3 issues I refuse to buy anything on release that is always-on.

On top of that, the game just doesn't look fun. You have these small "city" areas to work with, the maps aren't even dynamically generated, you can't terraform, and you are pretty much penalized if you decide to use anything other than 90* road designs. I don't know, I guess I had high hopes for this game and the more people play it and the more I read about it, the less happy I feel about it. Should have known this was coming when they tried SimCity on Facebook because this feels like a similar game with a few more features.

After hearing the shock stories today, I must admit I'm glad I didn't drop the money on this. Will wait for the bargain sale...

I'd wait. I'm currently waiting for a chat rep, I am demanding a refund. Or I am going to contact my bank and dispute the charge.

Wow so much negativity here. Origin India will sell it for $28. But even then I am not sure I will get it.

2 things that **** me off

1. Always on DRM and internet

2. Ridiculously small cities. They look like Farmville 2 size.

These 2 points are inter related. Eliminate one, the other goes away as well.

I reckon larger cities will be available later on. I don't remember the Beta be as small as that...

That's a bit harsh. That SimCity 4 image looks like a medium sized city.

It's from EA. I don't think they actually need to try to get negativity.

Meanwhile, I haven't stopped playing much at all since I got it. I really ought to go do something else for a bit haha.

I see DLC to expand your city. This game is a joke now. I hope it fails just so they can see what bad mistakes they made.
