Because frankly, I’m thinking that they must recruit from the local primary school or zoo. No offence to kids or animals intended, you’d probably do a much better job.
They released a new patch yesterday. Except for the URL that the Launcher tries to reach doesn’t work:
If you don’t recognise it, that’s the 404 error page with the pink 4×4 in the water.
Cue an avalanche of Mac users demanding an answer from EA. Some get on to Live Chat only to be given the wrong information, again! Finally a Guru shows up. I know you shouldn’t shoot the messenger but honestly, why bother?
“Please do not try and download patches from the link you were given. Updates (patches) are not at that link by design and you were given a bit of misinformation. We have not taken down the Mac updates and are not preparing new updates at this time. we are investigating issues that people are experiencing on Mac and PC. I do not have concrete information at this time unfortunately.”
In the meantime, us Simmers have been doing what we do best, fixing EA’s crap ourselves. BIG thanks to w3by for finding and posting the links to the manual patch updates for Mac users. You can find them on his post here.
And in future just disregard EVERYTHING that ANYONE from EA tells you. They might as well be talking out of their arse.
