    SimCity was down for maintenance because developer EA Maxis patched the city-building title to add the long-awaited offline mode. As of 12:58 p.m. ET, SimCity's servers are back online, and the game ...

    Believe it or not, I had to redo the tutorial.

    Be prepared to clickerty-click your way through it.

    Is there any option for larger maps?

    It feels too much like a fb mini game with these tiny cities it lets you build..

    Funny story, game is broken, online/offline mode have nothing to do with it. So i don't know what the fuss is all about. Mods? Pirates? I did not really mind online mode, it worked reasonably well, but game breaking bugs are main problem here.

    EA got their priorities mixed up - the game should've been offline-only to start with and then release multiplayer. At least then the game wouldn't have had such an abysmal launch.

    When I heard the news of this patch. I started looking to buy it.
    But the reviews to price ratio was way too bad for me to buy it. :puke2:

    Agreed.

    It's too easy to log into a game online and simply start 4 cities and grief people's maps by racking up huge debts by drawing roads and then deleting them - then leaving the map(s) altogether.

    Oh, and you can then log into another region like Europe or the states and do it all over again.

    There is no penalty for this as the (stupid) assumption is that people will want to play the game.

    Adding to this, if you do want to play the game, you can draw one road and not build any emergency services and the idiot simoleans keep moving in, even if their neighbour's house is on fire, or they are right next to a toxic waste area.

    You can get like 100k sims, all of them on fire or look like the toxic avenger - yet still paying tax.

    Another one that slipped through quality control just like bf4. Online or offline or even for free, no thanks.

    Yes well done EA just in time for anyone who gave a f*ck about the game to have gone off and bought something else. In my case I didn't even have to buy another game I downloaded Transport Tycoon Deluxe Open.

    The timing is strange and hilarious. Why now? Why not a week or two after release, or never?
