Looks like EA’s deniable asset has decided to go out with a real flourish.
The lesser spotted 23Kels89 and Moonandsixpens weren’t happy, although the latter also had to ask their latest daft question:
Tell ’em Igazor!
TadOlson did the right thing by turning off the auto-update so that TadOlson’s Sims 3 game was not wrecked by TadOlson’s Origin installation. But that’s because TadOlson is TadOlson.
Similarly, SimKeats has been able to keep her game as poetry in motion whilst InfraGreen meanwhile has taken it to the ultimate.
Of course, with so many modern games now being insistent on a permanent online connection for no logical reason whatsoever, Sims 3 is alas part of a dying breed.
ARRensch, JoAnne65 and CravenLestat celebrated their lucky escape.
Whilst xBob18, IreneSwift and Scrapdash started the inevitable conspiracy theory:
Don’t be silly, that would suggest EA actually knew what they were doing!
Moonandsixpens meanwhile kept herping the derpy derp.
We fully expect their invitation to become a Simguru to be sent to them before the week’s out.
For AlanMichael1 and old The Simmers Club veteran Nancy01905 (and Sims Evolution, Sims Heaven, the attempted TSC reboot and Delightful Sims for that matter…), this was no laughing matter however:
It’s a pretty bad day in the Simming world when even FriendlyOne20 and AMariseS are getting cynical:
Whilst Darkling and Anettesb did their best Penelope Pitstop ‘Haylp! Haylp!’ to the Simgurus…
… and the peasants started to become even more revolting than normal:
… Igazor did his best whilst waiting the usual million years for anyone from EA to get their fingers out.
Eventually, SimguruDrake and SimguruJanitor appeared to prove they weren’t ducking the issue:
As per usual however, it was down to the man from NRaas Industries to be more situationally aware of what was going on and provide practical assistance fast than the paid employees of EA.
Hey Presto, although Igazor did spoil it somewhat with this…
‘I’ll be even more glad when the Origin team gets to the bottom of this thing and stops it from happening in the first place!’
Now we want you to go stand in the corner for a few sim hours and think about what you just said!
But well done to FullSpiral and Igazor for probably helping prevent a bad situation becoming a complete disaster as yet again those meant to be in charge of looking after the welfare of Simmers proved they couldn’t find their collective arses in the bath.
