If the servers are full and peopl are playing it must not be total fail.. I am alittle pissed tonight though.. Played 8 hours last night on one of my "plots" of land. I came on tonight and it said the map wasnt processing right.. so i rolled back and as of right now have 270k people in that area.. the rollback takes me back to 68k people.. So im back to where i was before so 8 hours of game play gone.. Sigh.. I guess its god telling me to go to bed. lol So there ya go Sash im not happy about the experience with that. So lets go frolic to other forums and yell hatreds..

G2play is not a valid license key provider for any platform, they are know to work trough but EA and all others will not provide support for those keys.

In some cases they get blacklisted aswell, like I had with Anno 2070

Oh and you just raged, it's bad that this happend but i'm sure they will fix it, gamers just don't got the patience, sadly OMG REFUND OMG OMG

If you're losing your cool over this Hilbert... has to be bad. Never buying anything off EA ever again.

Most likely a $15-$20 limit, which limits you to either failed games or games from 2+ years ago.

EA's brand power is now not only lost among gamers, but all the casual gamers aswell. Keep digging yourself a deeper hole EA.

Amazon is allowing refunds on this game and has done so for other controversial games such as ACM. I highly recommend you buy from there for peace of mind even though g2play and similar sites offer a low price. Heck, even Steam has allowed refunds on WarZ and ACM.
Origin is a joke, they certainly are working hard to not earn my trust.

Hopefully EA will learn a big, big lesion from this. How not to launch a much anticipated big release. Think I'll wait a year till it comes down in price.

I almost feel bad for some of the devs, a few of them must have really poured their heart into this just for it to be ruined by poor management.
