    Atlantic just crashed again. I have no problem understanding computer problems. However if they are aware of a possibility that ATL having a major problem, be it computer glitch or in game activity I certainly hope they have the decency to give us a heads up. Give us a warning before we make high end deals, sell homes, etc.

    It would be a good time to simple cleaning/maintenance while this is worked out. Please EA.

    Since the last crash was caused by people crashing the shard on purpose by essentially DOS'ing it they probably won't be able to know in advance it's gonna happen...
