We have added 8 new servers over the past 8 hours to accommodate the heavy traffic we've encountered with fans wanting to play the game. The additional servers will help with latency and connection issues players have been experiencing . In an effort to further improve stability and performance, we will be taking down some of our servers for hardware upgrades. We are diligently striving to restore optimal gameplay status as soon as possible. Please bear with us for this scheduled maintenance.
We have taken down EU West 4 to upgrade it to a bigger server, which will allow for a larger capacity. While we implement this upgrade, access to this server will be unavailable. Rest assured, no saves or data will be lost.

Server Update: We're still working on EU 4, there is good availability on others. Especially our 8 new servers, so try playing on one of those. The new servers are on much more powerful so you should experience less issues playing. Start building those cites!
