    It seems that right now on SimCity, the servers that are under extreme load are getting closed to new users (that's if you haven't already claimed at least on city on the server).

    This means that anyone that has not yet claimed their city on either Eurogamer Ridge or Eurogamer County will not be able to until EA re-open access to Europe West 2. So you need to keep checking back.

    But, good news everyone! In light of this I have decided to open a third EG Region, and this time on Europe West 6.

    I have named it Eurogamer Fjord, and is based off Discovery Delta.

    No city maps here, just get in and ask for an invite and cities will be taken on a first come, first serve basis.

    Anyone can ask for an invite, but I will give preference to people who signed up for other EG regions but cannot get in due to server shenanigans.

    Eurogamer Fjord is live now!

    Edit: I have now also created Eurogamer County on Eurogamer Ridge on Europe West 6.

    Eurogamer County and Eurogamer Ridge on Europe West 6 will keep the same plot allocations as Europe West 2. So if you are already in an EG region now but fancy starting again or migrating you can take the same plot on Europe West 6.

    This gives people the chance to start again if they so desire now that server bugs are getting fixed. However I will not close the region or anything or force anyone to migrate. Do as you please basically.

    So, to recap. We now have two regions on Europe West 2:

    Eurogamer County
    Eurogamer Ridge

    We also have three regions on Europe West 6:

    Eurogamer County (existing allocations)
    Eurogamer Ridge (existing allocations)
    Eurogamer Fjord (first come, first serve)

    Right, that should be enough to keep all the EG'ers sated for now!

    Please be aware finally that I am constantly inundated with friend requests and messages, so please be patient and I will get to you!

    @teamHAM Great Idea Ham,

    I'm game to try and start again to get the ridge filled up, if we can get more people on EU west 6 all the better, if not and we stick with 2 thats all good.

    [edit]

    Swine! I wish you didn't have to start the tutorial and exit every time you moved to a new server :/

    Arrrrgghhh, got booted from my private single player sandbox with...

    'Unable to load the city at this time'

    Is this recoverable? I have the sinking feeling that it's borked for good.

    There's a SimCity recovery icon, in the SimCity folder on the start menu. No idea what it does though.

    I got back in, lost of an hours worth of work on my city. Nothing more soul destroying in this sort of game than losing loads of the work you've put in and having to re-do it.

    I thought with that I will move to Euro West 6 and ping my invite over for the new EG city...constant 20 minute waits to get on that one.

    For my sanity I might just sit out for a week or so and come back to the game then, I would hate to dislike the game because of issues that are nothing to do with the game.

    Yeah it's a dangerous game going "HAI GAIZ DIS SURVAH IS EMPTEE" because clearly all of the servers are being pounded. That's one problem with having region-free servers, everyone just hops around like mad rabbits.

    It's already been proven on the several sites that the 20 minute "queue" is actually not a queue at all, and the server doesn't have to be actually full for it to happen, just busy. They just keep you hanging for shits and giggles to protect the "load". It's happened to me before where I was in a 20 minute queue, just rebooted the game, went back on the same server and got straight in.

    So the 20 minute thing will fade. The only concern I have is the people that are trying to get onto Euro West 2 but literally can't because they didn't create a server in time and now EA has locked down the servers under the most load unless you already created a city.

    So, to recap (I say that a lot at the moment):

    Europe West 2:
    Eurogamer County
    Eurogamer Ridge

    Europe West 6:
    Eurogamer County (existing allocations)
    Eurogamer Ridge (existing allocations)
    Eurogamer Fjord (first come, first served)

    Right I've made a pass at my friends list and invite those to the EG regions on Europe West 6 that I can.

    Remember to be invited you need to be on the server beforehand.

    I suggest if you want to play on an EG Region get yourself onto Europe West 6, quit out of the tutorial and make yourself a solo city, save and quit out. Then if Europe West 6 does end up having the load problems that 2 has had then you won't get locked out of the server.

    And yeah, 10 minutes ago it told me I had a 40 minute wait (!) for Europe West 6. I quit out and just tried now and got straight in. So don't get too disheartened if you get the wait message. Just make sure you get on Europe West 6 and create yourself something so that if EA limits access to it before you get an invite to the EG regions you can still get in.

    All servers seem to be busy now. This is just silly. It looks like I'm never going to get to play with EG people.

    Can;t even select euro west 6 - it's full.

    A question for you good people - if I buy the Ltd edition with the Heroes and Villains dlc, can I play the game without the dlc? I don't really fancy having Dr Vu and Maxis Man running around my redneck dirt factory.

    The best advice I can give you is to wait until it is quiet and then nip on there to claim a region. Then you will be able to return at any time while continuing to lock people out that haven't claimed a region yet.

    This will apply across all servers.
