EA… What are we going to do with you…?

Earlier this month, an article was posted on Yahoo! Games regarding EA being deemed worst company in America…for the second year in a row… (Article can be seen here) Apparently, they seem to have a problem with shutting down their servers prematurely and provided poor customer service (if any at all) as the article purports…

Not very surprising… I even wrote a blog entry back in October (seen here) bashing them for their laziness on their sports games.

Today, I logged into Facebook and try to play SimCity Social, only to see a pop up message in-game stating the game will be shut down on June 14. Though I’ve only really spent about $20-25 on diamonds to use in this game, I feel really bad for those that spent more money and even purchased diamond vaults. Already, there’s a ton of complaints, of which some of those posting their complaints vow never again to purchase anything from EA.

Oh well… It sucks to be EA right now…

  1. To be fair, SimCity social was a run-up to SimCity’s release on PC. Now that it’s out, well, it really doesn’t need to be out anymore.

    Though I will miss it for being a better SimCity than CityVille could ever hope to be.

  2. That’s true. It wouldn’t make sense to have a free version of a game if they’re releasing one that people would have to pay for… There were a couple of people commenting on the forums that had pointed this out. Still, a lot of people are still voicing their complaints and that’s just not helping EA very much at the moment.
