Considering you can't play right now (all servers busy/down/full and constantly crashing and or even corrupting your entire city save) this is a good idea.
Unbelievable how crappy this launch went down. Though I played for 12 hours and let me tell you, simulation wise this is stunning. But holy crap, EA fucked this launch up so badly its not even funny. Wait a few more days before you even consider trying!
Also, your "save" is SERVER SPECIFIC. You play on EU WEST 2 , your save is there. You play on EU WEST 1 your save is NOT there. So don't jump servers. Stick to 1 server
