SimCity Update #5

Hey everyone – here’s a quick SimCity development update. My name is Kyle Dunham and I’m an Assistant Producer on SimCity. I’m also part of the Live Operations team working to improve your gameplay experience.

I just wanted to give you a little insight on the progress we made yesterday and our priorities for this week. Like Lucy mentioned in our update yesterday, we’ve begun upgrading several of our servers to both increase their capacity and mitigate connection issues. This process has been going well and we successfully upgraded 10 servers yesterday: NA West 2, EU West 1-4, EU East 2-3, and Oceanic 1-2. Today we’re working on upgrading our remaining servers, so bear with us as we take them offline one-by-one to perform these upgrades. While this is going on, we also released the new server South America today, bringing our total server count up to 24, including our Test server. While this is going on, we’re also improving the overall gameplay experience. We’ve already started addressing some of the issues we’ve been seeing with some of our players are having with trading intermittency and cities rolling back.

Stay tuned for more updates.

    Hi, Not sure how to contact you guys but with much pain i see you have dropped the price for a limited time. I am one of the suckers who purchased the Mac version for $99 before you moved the launch date. As you can see this seems a little bit unfair for you to drop the price and not offer us a $20 refund. Please can you refund the $20 or reimburse the whole lot as i purchased this game with the intent to play in June and July and not wait August. So i can not feel like you have screwed me over.
