I am very frustrated! Mine says Cannot connect to the server.  This is not the first time I have dealt with Sim products and not enough server...

I stayed up late too. GGGrrrrrrrr

Get your act together, EA. Especially considering this game comes with the "EA satisfaction guarantee", I'm pretty tempted to ask for a refund when you decide to launch on September first at 11pm (What kind of time is that anyway?) and then the game simply refuses to start? Come on now!

Someone on another forum stated that deleting Sims 4 and reinstalling worked for them but I am unable to re-download it as I am currently tethered to my phone for internet.

I hit reload games and it came up where I could hit the play button.  Fingers crossed for it working!
