EA: 'SimCity' good to go

If you were on the fence about getting EA's SimCity, come down off that ledge, friend, for all's well in the land of building simulation.

Posting on EA's blog, EA Maxis boss lady Lucy Bradshaw stated;
“I’m happy to report that the core problem with getting in and having a great SimCity experience is almost behind us."

“Our players have been able to connect to their cities in the game for nearly 8 million hours of gameplay time and we’ve reduced game crashes by 92% from day one.”
Bradshaw stated that the stability for the game's online portion came when EA added more servers and made more client updates.
“I had hoped to issue an All-Clear tonight, but there are still some elements coming together,” she added. “Tonight and tomorrow we’ll be monitoring each server and gameplay metrics to ensure that the service remains strong and game is playing great. We need a few more days of data before we can assure you that the problem is completely solved and the game is running at 100%.”
Bradshaw thanked gamers for sticking with EA through the server issues.
“You put your faith in us. You bought the game with the understanding that we’d quickly fix the server issues. For that support – that incredible commitment from our fans – we are deeply grateful. As the general manager of Maxis, I want you to know that we cherish your faith in us, and the love you’ve shown for this franchise,” she concluded.
