They could've went with a lot more servers than needed and then shut them down later, like they did with SWTOR. Better safe than sorry.
Too bad it won't really change much

Pretty much like you said. No point in crying over spilled milk. The only thing we can do is hope they don't make another mistake like this. Or completely ignore them and their games in case they repeat this.
You have to realise this is a major step in terms of what is on offer, name another game where it has cities in control with so much going on at once. There isn't.
If people are patient it will get fixed, and don't blame EA for the programming that is Maxis who did that.
Whats next EA's fault for the sky being blue?
Black&White 2 did it years ago, not at Sim's level but they still did it
