Origin has gone offline some time during the night and won't go online again. By using their direct link on the desktop, I can load other games I've downloaded but not Simcity.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Jenny, likewise - I'm running it with no population to see how long it takes to get rid of radiation which could take forever - no need to be multiplayered at all for my purposes right now. Are you able to load origin?

Here's a suggestion - rather than having an error message in Origin saying that the user is offline and then a button to "go online" which does nothing, leading to the user thinking its them and restarting Origin, restarting their PC, uninstalling and restarting Origin again etc why not have it say:
"Don't panic, our bad, the servers are down. Click here <url> for an update of when they'll be back".
It would save a lot of this nonsense.
Of course - having an OFFLINE MODE would completely resolve it.
