I got it. I really like the gameplay and everything, but it's been incredibly dumbed down from SimCity 4. I barely ever find my finances in the red and you can improve land value just by putting a single high-wealth park down. Specialisations are cool though, but I'm still getting issues like students not commuting from city to city and freight not being delivered to other cities.

I get why online only DRM pisses people off on a principle level, but I don't really care personally. I have an internet connection, so it makes no odds to me.

The game eats time though. Before you know it it's 4am and you're still trying to fix that sewage problem.

In 5 yeas time if they want to turn off the servers, they could probably just implement a patch that enables offline play. Someone already hacked the game to allow offline play but EA patched it fast. By the time they feel the need to turn them off, they won't give a shit if a handful of people pirate it since nobody will be still buying it anyway.

It's a good game now that it's working. All people are doing is depriving themselves of hours and hours of fun which does not affect or upset EA one bit. I'm not a fan of the DRM situation at all, but I care more about the game itself.
