Hi everyone! My name is Barrie Tingle and I’m one of the Live Operation Producers on SimCity. Since I am directly involved with the live service of the game, I wanted to take the time to update you about all the changes we’ve made recently, hopefully some you’ve already noticed.
The biggest change is that we’ve added three brand new servers (EU West 3/4 & EU East 3) yesterday. And today we added yet another (Oceanic 2). The addition of these new servers is our ongoing commitment to ensure we get everyone into the game. In addition to the new servers, we also issued a patch today that not only contains server optimizations, but also resolves a number of crash fixes, including one that commonly occurred on servers experiencing lag. For the full details and fixes, you can view our patch notes. Between these new servers and the patch yesterday, we’re seeing more and more people successfully play, and most importantly, have fun.
We’ll be giving you more regular updates as we continue to improve the experience, so this is just the beginning. To get the latest news and updates, be sure to follow our Twitter account and visit our official forums.
The team here at Maxis wants to thank you all for your continued support and patience. Happy building, Mayors!
