The launch of SimCity was plagued by server outages, preventing some customers from playing the game at all. Now that the server issues are being cleared up and more people are getting online, there is a new tool to check the status of your server.
The ‘SimCity Server Status’ page shows the status of each server by region. Players can simply go to the website below and get a quick look at how their server is responding at any given time. You can check out any of the 24 server regions that EA is currently monitoring on the site, almost of all them are green for now, with a few servers in the ‘yellow’. Hopefully the one closest to you is good to go.
You can visit and bookmark the page for later use by going to the official server status page below.
