So I bought SimCity – Limited Edition on Amazon for $40 after the $20 promo credit (great deal, eh!?) and tried to play it last night–it wouldn’t even let me join the tutorial. Today I tried again, with the following hilarious results. It looks like those (currently) 1,135 1-star reviews on Amazon are well deserved, despite reassurances from EA on twitter that everything is well and good:
@SimCity: We are working on the servers 24/7 – expect performance fluctuations. Our fans are our number one priority. Thank you for your patience.
First it wouldn’t let me connect to the server:
Then it lost its connection (North America East):
Then we go into the “blank loading screen, failure, retry” loop:
Finally it loads the tutorial!
Only to fail on the “click on the feedback balloon” quest, probably lost connection yet again. I’d hate to be in my real city and lose hours of play at this point … and I am only 5m in!
Trying to go back to the main screen, just blackness
Is anyone having a good experience with this at all?
