    Sent out a friend request to you EsotericReverie.

    Hope to play alongside you all soon!
    A couple of hours only 5 of the 16 cities were occupied, so there's plenty of room!
    It's weird having such massive residential and industrial demand (both are maxed out) from your two cities spilling over; but massively handy to not have to worry about power or refuse.

    Hehe, yeah that is nice, I suppose. Need to invest in commuter infrastructure too, I suppose.

    As for great works, I wouldn't mind an arcology, on that slot near Giovanni Woods. I need workers, and I know Choca wouldn't say no to some tourists. Just need a shot-tonne of money.

    Don't worry about being new to the series! I'm much in the same boat, but from what I have played so far (which is only a few hours) the game is pretty good at holding your hand. Also, since the region is quite big I guess there is less pressure on any one city to be 'great' - the slack is picked up between us all and so you should be good to experiement away and see what you enjoy and what works best. If you find you mess up a bit and need power / workers / jobs you can always outsource it for a while!

    Look forward to seeing you in game!

    Oh, oh! Pick me, pick me! :D. I caved in and bought cheap to see what all the fuss was about, would love to play a region with you guys. I PMd you with my Origin ID and asked for a friending on Origin.

    Hope to see you all online.

    Hey Mbaya can you produce more power? :D I can't fit anything into my city and I'm already buying 3/4 of my required power from you :O

    Just taking a break to get a bite to eat, servers are very wobbly for me atm but I'll get on it as soon as I'm back! I think I noticed a few cash gifts from you, thank you and much appreciated :)

    Daft question time, the tutorial mentioned I had a 'free' firetruck to send to nearby cities that didn't impact my city's total - is that true of all my facilities, or does sending over some police reduce the number of police available for my city from my current pool?

    Starting to fill up my area now, looking at utalising my oil, but mistakenly built over my second field already >< Can always mine Ore as my backup plan I guess.

    Thanks and see ye all in game, I just noticed the 'chat' like feature in the top right of the game too, handy.

    Yeah, though the chat is just as wobbly as the servers. Huge latency on that too. Like a minute or so.

    Well it's hardly groudbreaking news but the servers are taking the piss with me. Have had to re-log 4 times in the last hour because the game just stops responding and this is just whilst I'm trying to join a game from the main menu. Doesn't seem to want to let me. I can start/continue my own region okay for some reason. In-game chat and friends list has never worked properly for me. I wonder if they will be trying to fix this over the weekend or we will be into next week before they sort out the servers. Playing at obscure times of day seems to work like a charm though, I suppose it is just because of less people online.

    Any hints and tips on how to actually join a game or is the answer just to wait till the servers are less busy? Anyone else wanting to join the region having the same problem as me?

    I got the invite and started a city, but the lag was so bad I couldn't actually play. I could build stuff, but everything that changes (money) was frozen. Restarted Origin, haven't been able to get back to my city. When I can manage to get the region to load, my city doesn't even show up as an option, and I can't see it among the list of cities I've started. So yeah, seems like waiting until they get their crap together is the only option...

    Hey gang - I'll be up for taking on one of your regions - once I am not mired in the endless server issues (hooray for EA right?).

    As for getting into the game itself, forget it. I got lucky early on today while people were still at work (early afternoon UK time), started my own region, built a city, had a great time - but this evening? Forget it.

    My Origin name is the same as my forum name, if the person with the region could invite that'd be fantastic.

    OK, well I got the invite but of course the servers don't like the idea of me actually claiming a site. Was talking to Esoteric on Origin and we were thinking of a long term goal of coordinating for a Great Work. Archology was suggested and I like that (though Space Port gets a vote from me also). With that in mind I was going to aim for Education and High Tech industry via manufacturing and mining though that is exactly what Esoteric has gone for too. What are you guys thinking of specialising in? I suppose we don't all want to be going for the same specialisation though I think when you get a university there are different types of research you can focus on. Sounds like Esoteric is well on his way to creating an advanced nuclear reactor so we can all leach power from him for the foreseeable future ;)

    My suggestions for Great Works would be Solar Farm, Space Port, Arcology. In that order.

    Well, I think I broke the region, lol. The server let me in, but the site where I previously founded a city is no longer a city site. I picked another zone, but I don't know what to do about the broken city spot. It was due west of Tinpot Town if anyone wants to see if it shows up for them.

    Heya, I was playing tonight and I have claimed a second city by accident. There was a 'mini-tutorial' that I clicked on and it made me take one with no option of backing out or otherwise getting back to my game without a complete reboot and risking the server frezy again. I'm not sure if it is possible to 'unclaim' this one? If anyone knows how please let me know - otherwise I will do my best to look it up in FAQs tomorrow.

    Theres an option to abandon your city, can't recall where exactly as I'm not in the game right now but it exists...

    Yeah, I did that when I accidentally picked two sites. But now the site is totally gone, the blue square doesn't even show up.

    I just noticed this, looks like it is properly bugged out, can select the square but no info comes up and there is no way to claim it.
