EA adding more SimCity servers over next two days

When a game first launches, there is always one question that every gamer asks that participates, and that is whether or not the servers will go down. You all know what I’m talking about, that first time you see the log in screen or hit the big play button, you just hope that you’re not going to be prompted with an error message that says something like “the servers are down” or “there is maintenance” and that is on launch day. It’s pretty unacceptable for a game to advertise something like “MAKE SURE YOU CALL OUT SICK” and then when you do all you do is sit there all day while they try to correct the ‘overloaded servers’.

I honestly say that with a grain of salt because, being the pessimist that I am, I believe that it is some sort of marketing technique to know that your servers are going to fail, and then letting it happen anyway. That way the developers are sitting there going “oh no, we had no idea that SO MANY people would be playing our game! Let us go ahead and add more servers for you guys. No it’s okay, you are welcome, we know.” I am not sure why, but there is something about it that just bugs me.

SimCity has made me lose all interest in their game simply for this reason. They know their following and they knew this game was going to be huge, yet they just weren’t prepared. EA is adding more servers, but it’s almost smug how they announce that they HAVE to because of all the new people that love their new game. Being a long time Sims follower, I am rather upset about this entire deal but it is what it is.
