Quigley’s dismay at SimCity’s 'blundered launch' and why he quit EA

Talking about why he quit EA, former SimCity creative director Ocean Quigley told Polygon he had been "dismayed" at the botched launch of SimCity, in which EA insisted gamers play always-online, while failing to provide enough server capacity.

The story is too old to be commented.

"EA's strengths are executing things with hundreds of people, to well-understood patterns"

For a creative person to say that has to be a sly dig at EA. You want your creative people to feel free to do what they do best, not create stuff to "well-understood patterns".

Also the launch was the icing on the cake.. how about how they turned Sim City into Sim Town/neighborhood?
