It doesn't really matter in the long run, once you get to 100k people, traffic congestion rears its ugly head no matter what you do and your city will start choking off and dying.

Theoretically they're working on fixing that.

My husband bought this game for me, and I have yet to install it. Has playability been better since they annouced that they "fixed" the server shortage?

Yeah, I only had a couple of days where I couldn't play at all.

That being said, my desire to play this game is about 0 right now what with the absolutely retarded AI.

Cakv,

Yes you can play. The server connectivity issues are almost completely gone. However the crippled the game to allow the servers to function this well.

That said, do not expect your progress to be saved correctly.

[8:01:31 PM] him: EA was always known as a grindhouse anyway
[8:01:43 PM] him: damn thats just a QA problem
[8:01:47 PM] him: is it otherwise good?
[8:02:58 PM] me: you know there are so many other crap bugs... but as a gamer. shit, I'm a bug dodging master... but no saved game?! That is broken... yes, looks great, design is there... but it's riddled and broken

Neesha,

One time my cousin Walter got this cat stuck up his ass. True story. He bought it at our local mall, so the whole fiasco wound up on the news. It was embarrasing for my relatives and all, but next week, he did it again. Different cat, same results, complete with another trip to the emergency room. So, I run into him a week later in the mall and he's buying another cat. And I says to him, "Jesus, Walt! What are you doing? You know you're just gonna get this cat stuck up your ass too. Why don't you knock it off?" And he said to me, "Brodie, how the hell else am I supposed to get the gerbil out?" My cousin was a weird guy...and he thought SimCity sucked.

Walter's problem is that he buys cats from the mall. Those damn mall pet stores often sell inbreeds.

Relevant to the discussion.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=catass

1. catass 115 up, 9 down

Some one who plays a Online game and excludes everything else. Often used to describe when some one has a lot of time to spend in a online game.
Came from a article in a newspaper on Everquest. The player they interviewed played so much Everquest he forgot to change his cats littler box, leading the reported to comment his house smelled like "a cats ass".
Not every one has enough time to catass foir items in Everquest.

That guy is such a catass, he has been at the same spawn for 9 hours straight.

More example sentences would be helpful in narrowing down the definition.

The catass staggered as he peaked outside, the sun scorching his blanched skin.

So I have been playing for a week or so more at this time, really enjoying the Sandbox Mode as I just like to build.

Currently really not experiencing any bugs or corrupt saving, but I havent moved to the general populous of the game.

You can find me as "CakvalaSC"
