    Ignore the queue. Just keep trying to connect to servers manually. It only took me about five minutes to get in that way.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Looks like they've added a third EU West server.

    Logged in at quarter past, got straight on. Pretty flawless from where I was sitting tbh.

    Here's hoping it saved my town for tomorrow...

    No no no. It's not supposed to be fine, it's supposed to take ages and everyone gets angry. Try it again you must have done it wrong.

    Ah that makes sense, I guess the small group of us on is spread out.

    ah that seemed to work, switched to Western 3 and I can now see my Avatar and both you and Razz Dan.

    Though slightly annoying changing server seems to force you to re-run the tutorial, though once loaded you can quit to get back to the menu proper.

    I caved! Stayed up and played he tutorial, it's reall good, but it looks a little washed out and the animations are very jerky on my system. Can't wait to start building a city

    @Razz No I didnt have any either, I'd assumed as those guys who had got online earlier weren't present to invite, i just jumped onto the EG ridge map alone to get a feel for the map.

    Jumped back to Western 2 and still no friends showing up, maybe we should start EG Ridge (group #2) on Western EU 3 if we're the first, maybe more chance to get everyone together then.

    In fact I just made it now, since its multi server I don't see how it hurts to have a second waiting in the wings

    @teamHAM Added a EG Ridge to Western EU server 3 as a standby, maybe we'll need it maybe not, but not made anything in it as yet. I guess I can easily delete it if needs be.

    While I have no intention of buying this game ever I did enjoy reading some of the Polygon comments. One guy gave it 1/10 because the theme tune that plays while he sits in an infinite queue is catchy, later revised it to 0.5 as is has begun to grate after several days :-)

    After playing for a couple of hours I need sleep. As it went on I could see my friend list appear and saw lampy.

    Liked what I've played but cant seem to expand over 28,000 residents. Can't wait to get cracking tomorrow (fingers crossed)

    @Razz my game looks the same on my set up, once I have my new graphics card Monday it should look a lot better and less jerky.

    Polygon, the paragons of professionalism.

    Why not just wait mere days for the predictable server meltdowns rather than jizzing up the original review?

    Page impressions I guess.

    @Gl3n Correct

    'We're thinking what you're thinking! Read our shit more often'

    What's the bet they bump that back up when the server issues are fixed by next week.

    I'm surprised at how badly it runs on my machine. I only have a 550m in my laptop but I'm barely scraping 25 FPS with shadows & lighting on low, everything else on medium, low res and no anti aliasing. I guess I was naive. :(

    Downloaded and logged in this morning, played tutorial and started a private city without any problems

    Hope it doesn't crumble into ashes tonight

    Hardly any problems at all last night, apart from having to play on a different server to te one decided for the EG region, which I'll try and get on tonight.

    Can't wait to get stuck in again, I had to force myself to go to bed at about 2am.

    i7-2630. 8 giggle biggles of RAM.

    I just tried setting lighting to minimum and doubled my frame rate. :/

    I've got it running very smoothly on my 5770 with everything on high, just capped at 30fps. It just looks very flat and just seems to be missing "something" from screenshots and videos I've seen.

    Have you fiddled with the tilt settings and "Instagram settings"?

    I couldn't really figure out what "tilt" was meant to do.

    I've got to confirm what Tom Chick said: I've tested neighboring cities (in single-player), exchanged water, etc., but it doesn't really seem to work, and seems to have an effect only on one city. Wonder if it's a bug, or the servers not coping, but it does render multiplayer a little useless.
