Maxis’ SVP Lucy Bradshaw has released another update on the status of the game, claiming that crashes are now down 92% from day one. While she was looking to issue the all-clear, apparently the situation still requires monitoring and further adjustment.
“The good news is that tens of thousands of new players are streaming into the game every day and the confidence our fans have shown is truly humbling,” writes Bradshaw. “I can’t begin to explain the way a development team feels when something you’re proud of is threatened at launch. Our biggest fear was that people who love this franchise would be scared off by bad reviews about the connectivity issues.”
“But 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.”
“The game was designed for MP,” reads the comment. “We sim the entire region on the server so this is just not possible.”
