Want in one hand, crap in the other and see which one gets filled faster.


I can assure, no one in power gives a crap what some cry baby nerd wants.

Yes indeed, greed gets the better of these companies that target cry baby nerds like you and I!

FYI - I ain't crying! I got ripped off, and now EA will pay new developers to fix this game!

Yes well, how is you acting like you can tell others what to do helping to fix Simcity?



Hello eversonj90, did your refund come through?

I posted this in another thread, but I'll repost here as it's relevant.

If you go to Simcity.com to look at videos and do some research about the game before buying it right now, you will find the following pages:

http://www.simcity.com/en_GB/game/info/a-new-simcity -
  • "SimCity is a live service that simulates real time updates from new challenges to new features and content."

    No challenges have been added, updates to region play are not in realtime.

  • "You can also choose to collaborate or compete with friends to build great works or earn achievements by topping the leaderboards."

    Leaderboards have been disabled since launch and have not ETA on when they will be back

  • "The more you invest in a specific industry, the more influence a city has over your region"

    No one city influences the region in any way, and has very little influence of the other cites as inter-region play is extremely unreliable.

  • "specialize in industries that create pollution and then watch as the Sims in your neighbors’ cities become sick"

    Pollution map is broken and your cities will get flooded with pollution regardless of what you or anyone else does.


http://www.simcity.com/en_GB/game/info/model-like-world
  • "The success of your city will depend on good urban planning."

    Due floods of taxis, extremely poor routing algorithms and bunching of service vehicles, no amount of planning will stop the ultimate demise of your traffic system.


http://www.simcity.com/en_GB/game/info/control-multi-cities
  • "View your achievements and access global leaderboards from the Citylog hub"

    Leaderboards are switched off.

  • "Buy and sell resources on the global market with true supply and demand simulated prices influenced by everyone playing"

    Global market is disabled.

  • "Complete in global challenges and earn exclusive achievements and content unlocks!"

    Global challenges are switched off and there is no way to access exclusive achievements or unlocks via a global challenges.

  • "Great Works. You can plan a fusion reactor"

    Fusion reactor has never been a great work.


http://www.simcity.com/en_GB/game/info/specialise-city
  • "These decisions will have effects on the global prices of resources. Be wary of the mass pollution that can spread to neighboring cities! Check the leaderboards to see your status as an industrialist, and make a name for your city in your region and the world."

    All points have been previously mentioned, but the repetition of them in advertising is relevant


This is without going through all the videos and pointing out features that don't exist. I don't think that class action is the way to go, but if you think the game is fine and people are moaning for nothing you have either

a) Never Played it
b) Are lying and an EA shill / fanboy
c) Are lying and are troll

Don't bite, it's a one sided argument with him.

Not worth the time or energy.

Where do you see false advertisement?
I mean i have found very few issues that make this game "not work"
Are you sure you haven't got this mixed up with cities XL as that game has a habit of not working in under 100 hours

So what exactly doesn't work?


No, with all do respect, you are still new to the game, you have not advanced as far as I have, once you start expieriencing these issues, then you'll see, no offence intended!


I've got almost 700 hours in the game and think you're a full of * troll, and this is your tag line used in every post you make.

"Your new and haven't got as far as me".

Kudos to you, Sir! You know how it is done. Serious research and documentation. I may use your results for other threads if I may.

As mentioned earlier...good job surgically discovering the false advertising which no one has YET to file an official complaint. The Global Market was the first thing that came to mind and to be honest one of the top 3 reasons I pre-ordered this game.
