  • Something’s Changed

    By LA2047
    I’ve been playing for years and have really liked this game. It’s a great way to spend time that doesn’t require constant interaction or strategy; you just play it because it’s fun. However sometime in the last couple months EA has done something to this game that has made it frustrating to play, to the point where I’m considering ending it. Here’s why: First (albeit smaller) problem: inflation. What used to take seven tokens to earn, now takes eight. What used to require four tasks to reach, now takes six. Of course if you don’t like it, there’s now the “pay real money to skip the effort” option, which feels a little like they said “let’s make the game rewards a revenue stream.” I could deal with it if the game still operated well, but to be constantly faced with requests to spend real money when things keep glitching is insulting. Second, it locks up suddenly. A LOT. It virtually never used to, now it locks up at least once every single time I play it. Often it does so multiple times until I’m so fed up I just stop playing. Third, it’s got glitches now. For example, one of the districts is one in which half is snowy and the other half is green. Buildings placed on the green side with be colorful and, well, green. Buildings placed on the snowy side will appear white like it’s winter. Suddenly they’re switched: the snowy side is full of green parks and buildings and the green side is full of snow covered buildings. Not all mind you, just several, so each side looks like a green and white checkerboard. Fourth: the icons and text has gotten soooo damned small that it’s almost impossible to read. Seriously. When completing tasks in the mayors challenge one might simply read “launch this war attack” and show a picture of the attack card. But the picture is so stinking small you can’t see what the attack is! And the text when reading anything is minuscule! You know how ridiculous it is to have to hold a magnifying glass up to your iPhone screen to be able to play the game?! Finally, the worst problem: Their help desk. Oh sure, they’re friendly and empathetic; they’re nice and tell you how much they understand. And I thank them for it. But they DO NOTHING about the problems communicated. Not even to suggest when they may fix the issues or a return email saying they’ve identified coding issues and expect to hope to have them resolved with an update in...whenever. No, you send an email and all you get back is some smarmy thing like the villain of the game must be playing tricks and that they’ve made a note and will into it, then... nothing. No update; no correction; no return word. Oh there seems to be noooooo problem with releasing updates for new season challenges in which the best rewards require real money to get, but none seem to address the coding errors that have been showing up ridiculously frequently lately. I don’t know what’s changed and I really don’t want to stop playing but I can’t see continuing playing (and often spending real cash) a game that’s become so infuriating. I’m tired of sending error reports via email because I feel like they now regard me as nothing but a complainer. So I’m hoping if more people read this and have the same problems they too can insist EA does something about it.

    I have this one house that has no water, power, garbage, etc despite my capacity being high enough... Overall a good game though.
  • Stolen Simcash???

    By nightflower101
    I have yet to buy anything with my Simcash, I was looking at some buildings, when all of a sudden my simchash went from 50 to 12. I havent seen anything else change, nor did I see anything new from a store.

    I love this game...but randomly lose progress made. Had storage up to 395 then next week down to 385, then get it back up to 400 then next week randomly down to 390, so frustrating I’m about to quit.
