Yeah so this happened on Europe East 1, in the 5th largest region. My original city which had earned over 2 million simoleons was starting to load slower and slower as our region grew. We were also getting a LOT of rollbacks for our cities. Everytime I signed in it would start me off right after this same distaster struck in the same way.
Eventually you could just not connect. I see a lot of abandoned cities as the other players in our region gave up on the game.
Apparently our region is just too big I think. It really sucks because I have no incentive to make my cities big now, I'm absolutely sure it's region size that is destroying our chances of loading the cities.
I'm attempting to claim and load another city in the region, but I've been on the loading screen for 25 minutes now....
This is probably never going to get fixed. I am awaiting news on my chargeback.
Just started happening to me with my one and only city... Just got to almost 120k people in it and now I can't play it...
SAme issue, though I don't think its region size, I have had this on a 3 player map as well as on the larger ones/
I cant take this any more, today is the 6th day and servers are still not working properly.... EA, please contact with Blizzard and ask them to help you cuz you dont know how to handle this problem!!!!!!! Even when Diablo or WoW came out, it only took a day for them to fix it! You fail big time, This is the worst server handling and game opening ever!

worked for me too (at least for one city).
