What most forget was Sim City was designed to try and get everyone involved with each other, and most people knew that, and should have expected to be online all the time.

I will admit an offline SP with a larger play area would be nice yes. But that is up to Maxis in a sense if they bring that to people. Its confusing, with the whole politics.

EA did take action and offered a free game to people who purchased and activated Sim City on Origin. You should have gotten an email with the instructions on how. And tried to get a middle ground with people, but the majority of people were the ones who bought the game thinking there would be a SP element.

So it is difficult, but things will get better, people just need to be patient about it.

Typical EA BS here. Anybody who disagrees with EA is a liar and shouldn't be taken seriously. Great customer relation skills. Amazon is full of people who bought the game and are ****ed off because there is no offline mode. Why is that so hard to understand? Can you show me the forum where people were upset because not only did Simcity 4 not require an always on internet connection, but they wanted a much smaller space to build their city in? Better yet, Both EA and Maxis screwed up royally and instead of owning up to it or fixing it, they sit there and say "sorry, doesn't fit in with our vision." I don't care about the free game they offered. It doesn't address the major problem. Your crap responses and lies represent the company as a whole and is exactly why EA is likely going to be voted the most hated company in America for the second year in a row. No company has ever done that before and with the likes of Bank of America around, that's REALLY impressive. Not only that, but it's also why the market cap for EA has gone from $16+ Billion in April of 2009 to around $5.3 Billion. Fast on its way to bankruptcy which will be AWESOME. People don't just hate EA for no reason. They hate it because of its policies, they hate it because it ruins game franchises that were once great and they hate it because of people like you.

Don't take your anger out on him. He has his opinions and he has them for a reason, probably in ways we don't understand but we are not insiders, still show a little more respect. Keep a cool head, nobody will applaude you on here for getting at him, sure as hell I won't. It's okay to have an opinion but try to be a little less agressive.

1. Watch how you talk to people, or your stay will be short. (considering you have been around 5 years I thought you would be man enough to figure out how to be nice to people)

2. These aren't lies, when it was showcased the Maxis representative clearly told everyone at E3 and people at home that it would be focusing on an online experience.

3. You then say anybody who disagrees with EA is a liar or shouldn't be taken seriously, you shouldn't be but not everyone else. If you want to throw out so much diatribe without reading what was said then go you. You are one of those Anti-EA people out there, you didn't even buy Sim City did you. No. You are just jumping on the bandwagon and trying to look intelligent about it but failing at it. The way you talked there to me shows it.

4. Like any company things can go bad and go wrong, not just EA but all companies. But most people are patient and understand, and had common sense enough to read up about a game before buying it. There was no deception played by EA or Maxis on Sim City they told people well into advance that it would be online and focused as such.

5. I work for Bioware under contract, but I have had my share of giving EA bad marks for titles that should have been done better, perhaps you should have checked up on things like that before you went on the attack. Utter childishness, "and they hate it because of people like you" just clarifies that.

No it wasn't focused for online, up until last year the always on was never mentioned to the media at all (not just the gaming media either, other mainstream media were talking about SimCity being offline as well), leading people to think it would have an offline, SP component (which I personally would like, heck I'm STILL playing SimCity 4 with mods), Even if, and that's a huge IF they patch it in, IMO it's too late to save SimCity.

FWIW I bought Simcity pretty much day 1, I assumed there were workarounds, I assumed people had come up with fixes, but....no. No workarounds, a lot of poor coverage in the press. A free game scheme that's been described as a cynical marketing ploy (why extend the period to register your game?), I think EA have a ton of issues with the title and need to work long and hard on fixing them

I personaly hate EA for what they did with the C&C series and i truely blame them for it, and yet they somehow keep making me buy new games of the series with promishes that it will give the same old school feel to it. (sjees i can see the newly F2P C&C fail allready in so many ways, yet im also eagerly waiting for the beta invite...) but thats me... But i dont really mind the "always online to play" function as i have internet and its always on anyway. i do hate it when a game loses support of the dev team at one point and the server go offline and you cant play the game anymore wich costed you a mere 50$ or so. but thats the way its going and you got to deal with that.

PS. I like to say GODDAMMIT EA you ruinend another game!! just because EA is easy to blame and its brand is better known to me

PPS. also this quote i think tells alot to.
"Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things."
Winston Churchill
