SimCity owners going through issues connecting to the game will have to wait a bit before the servers can handle the capacity.
However, EA wants you to forget about all this and become friends again. They are offering a free game to users who activated the game.
The server issues have been improved and the reason for all the troubles was that a lot more people logged on than they expected. “More people played and played in ways we never saw in the beta,” Lucy Bradshaw, general manager of Maxis Label, revealed.
“OK, we agree, that was dumb, but we are committed to fixing it. In the last 48 hours we increased server capacity by 120 percent. It’s working – the number of people who have gotten in and built cities has improved dramatically. The number of disrupted experiences has dropped by roughly 80 percent.”
They have also announced a free PC download game from the EA portfolio. This will be available on March 18.
“I know that’s a little contrived – kind of like buying a present for a friend after you did something crummy. But we feel bad about what happened. We’re hoping you won’t stay mad and that we’ll be friends again when SimCity is running at 100 percent.”
