    Not sure I am going to get this one - From what little I have seen 2000 looks superior which I find crazy.

    I got into one of the beta weekends and it surprised me, I was worried it was going to be like sim city societies. I like the fact that you can upgrade buildings, like adding an extra fire truck, instead of building an new station.

    30 minute (for the game to attempt a reconnect) wait for a single player game. Whoopiedoo.

    Would someone please briefly explain the basics of the multiplayer? Do people need to be on the same server? Do people start a new game together and then build a city by discussing aspects of it through an ingame chat or voice function? It sounds like something that would be cool to play with others, but I am having trouble figuring our how cooperative play would work in this type of game.

    Thanks,
    Kal

    Ive pre-ordered the game and awaiting the Oceanic release.

    My Origin Tag is in the private section for Simcity

    Are you able to create a ToG grp under Origin, much in the same way as Steam does it?

    I was unsure about the game. I watched the Jesse Cox and Crendor clips and my intrested in the game improved.

    After watching the TB video I undertood the game a lot better in my eyes and understood what they where trying to do. It seems that Maxis didn't pull it off but overall it seems like a great game that is going to be let down by the average online gamer.

    Yes, you need to be on the same server as the person you want to play with. You don't have to start the game at the same time but you should as if it is in a public region anybody can join. As for discussion it would probably help if you want to get really into it. I don't really see the need for voice unless you want to just chat. I think most discussion would revulve around what specialization you are choosing, and if one of you needed a resource.

    As far as I know you can't create groups

    NOTE: Keep in mind, this is in the public forums. So, if you don't want your Origin ID available to search engines, don't post it here.

    I preorderd a hard copy, myself. Ran into the usual online DRM 0-day crap this morning trying to install. Quit, took a nap, and tried later this afternoon. Installed, started, ran tutorial successfully.

    Origin ID is below in my signature. Logged into NA West 1. (Hope they increase the servers soon.)

    Will be off and on inconsistently as I'm still working my way thru DLC for Borderlands 2.

    I went with NA west, even though I'm in the east due to it being low when I started my city.

    I should be getting my copy of Sim City, dropped off sometime later today, I'd like to play with all Y'all, does anyone want me to play in their region? If you'd like me to build a city in your area, let me know where to go and I'll sign up there.

    thanks,
