Emptor caveat. Everyone knew about the online factor months before its release. Anyone who didn't expect some minor or major hiccups was fooling themselves. I especially LOVE the fact that it states, "Even 72 hours after its release, players are unable to log in and play." 72 whole hours!?! Must be hard! Eight years after its release, World of Warcraft still has problems with major patch days. This being Simcity's first online release, I think they did and continue to do an outstanding job. Anyone who signs this petition has some serious patience and high expectation problems.
