Newbro, I am not going to call you an ass, I have no idea if you are ass or not. I do think you are missing the point though. This board is notoriously cynical, I don't think anyone here would argue that. In this particular case however the point (as I see it in this thread anyway) is that EA could have done this offline mode in the first month or so after release if they were doing it "for the customers" as opposed to nearly a year later "for the business". Put simply, this is like EA saying the cliche' "Come back baby, I promise I will change this time!". Kinda of hard to take seriously this late in the game. All puns intended.

To spin it another way, I am sure there is a contingent of paying customers who are wondering why they can't get bigger city maps or mult-thread processing or....well you get my point. Existing players want solutions to existing issues. These people paid money for a game with online only use, it stands to reason that it probably isn't their biggest concern. Going with an offline mode is nice for the modding community, and that's great, but when you say for such a long time that something isn't possible and than you suddenly decide to do it at around the same time that it benefits you the most, pretending it is for the customer and not for yourself is a bit of a dick move.

I would be shocked if the folks here didn't jump on it. They should. The time to react to your existing customer base is immediately if your focus really is on the customers, not after you have already bled your core audience dry and need to find a new one to pay the bills with. This is the kind of thing that gets EA voted Worst Company in America.

Nicely pointed out. I do agree top priority would be fixing existing issues instead of the offline patch, but do keep in mind that making an online based game this size playable offline does takes quite some times (As the lead engineer pointed out), so I'm not sure how EA could have resolved this in the first month after release. I mean it's not like EA sees a decline in sales after few months, so tells Maxis to flip the 'offline' switch right? This is what annoys me the most.

I'm not trying to defend EA, god knows how many times they pushed unfinished products for release just to earn some quick bucks (Battlefield 4 anyone?), but i mean just give credits when it's due please?

Not to be an ass.. but first people whined when there's no offline mode which I perfectly understand.. But now that it's here let's whine some more on how it was impossible in the first place? Seriously you guys are hard to please, give them a break already.. And now I don't work for EA and do not own a copy of the game. Only chance I would purchase it is when it's in the discount bin for $5

I love KF and already lvl6 all the perks. It was fun for a while but the graphic is definitely getting outdated. I really wish they would work on KF2, I would buy that in a heartbeat

Coming from Battlefield Bad Company 2, I thought the netcode in BF3 has improved a lot. I honestly have tons of fun in the original game and just bought the premium pack. For all of you who said the netcode sucks, perhaps you should just find a better server to play on?

As for cheating, I do occasionally meet one of those that just headshot you from miles away with their machine gun, however that was only a couple times and not enough to take away the joy I have with the game. So why all the hate? If you own the game, then stop bitching about it and just enjoy it... or is that too hard for you?

News Comments > SimCity Pares Down Features to Meet Demand

I didn't buy the game, but one particular sentence from the post annoys the crap outta me:
What we saw was that players were having such a good time they didn't want to leave the game, which kept our servers packed and made it difficult for new players to join

Now, do they honestly NOT expect people to stay on the server if they are so damn confident that they created one hell of a game? I understand server capacity and all as it happens all the time, but this guy seriously needs to think before he speaks.....

Next week mutation is 'Headshot'... does that mean all zombies can only be killed via headshot? If so it would be totally awesome!
