This has been awful so far. The game is fantastic but I can only log in to one server in Europe. The city I created is now STUCK on that server. I was able to switch but you have to go through the tutorial on EVERY server you connect to. On top of that if it bugs out you effectively can't use that server at all.
A friend and I played musical servers and between not being able to connect and the bugs from the tutorial, and we could not join a server and play in the same region in-game. This launch has been a travesty. You launch a major title that people have been waiting for FOR YEARS and you only have 4 US servers available. FOUR!?!?
This is the last time I will buy a single player game that requires a dedicated internet connection. I've learned my lesson with Diablo 3 and now this. Done. I'm also done with EA.
