    Ultrawide users UNITE!

    If you are currently using an Ultrawide monitor, join the list! I recently bought an Asus MX34VQ, and it is absolutely fantastic! Still figuring out the best settings for EFT though.

    Whats YOUR opinions on YouTube videos

    Hey man! I also used make videos for my friends and members of our small community to enjoy. Mostly because I love the editing part and revisiting memorable moments. I love PvP moments, or moments our team worked well together. So those are the parts I try to keep. What is your youtube channel dude? Or do you keep it between you and your friends?

    South African Server request Poll

    That number is a total piss in the wind my friend. We can only work with the numbers we have, the rest is a ballpark estimation with no factual data to base it from. It is but a feeling based on nothing. By your wager, you could then assume that we have 240 players that state they are active? Rumour has it we are indeed getting local servers. So that would probably triple that number, because of new players buying the game and old ones returning cause local servers... A 1000 local, active players... That would be a dream come true.

    South African Server request Poll

    What is the current status? We have 118 people that voted. I reckon that is about as much as we are going to get from our ZA facebook group to vote here. We shared this post on our biggest gaming community, ZAGA, as well. We could only muster 118. Can the dev's give us an estimation of how many players we would need to keep the maps occupied. I roughly calculated we would need more than 200 people to keep a match time of <10 minutes on a map.

    South African Server request Poll

    So... After deliberating with myself for the better half of an hour, I decided to cast my vote as 'active'. I am not convinced it makes any difference... Some math for you guys to consider: Factory: 4-6 players. Customs: 6-12 Woods: 6-12 Shoreline: 8-13 Interchange: 9-14 Labs: 6-10 Let's say, for argument's sake, that we work on a 20minute cycle. That is enough time for most PMCs to have killed each other and majority ready to lobby again. We can use more accurate figures here, if we know the average raid time of a PMC. But we don't. To have a decent Tarkov experience, you would want the option to join any of the available maps with the minimum player count filled. So the total minimum player count for every 20min cycle would be about 40 people. Ready to lobby every 20minutes. Can we honestly say, that we can provide 40 people to lobby every 20minutes for the 'prime time' gaming hours? If not, then we have load times longer than 20 minutes or empty maps. Let us see where this poll goes I guess.

    Servers

    You should be able to select a region in your game launcher. Try die EU servers, behoort beter te wees as die NA outjies.

    Can we request a real emissary?

    Thanks @TheWay. We will get those other people to apply. I also like to attach my other response here for some context: I agree wholeheartedly with Wackomedic911 on this point. We have many committed players in our community, many of which would make fine emissaries/representatives. It is common in South Africa for us to avoid participating on international forums and reddit. We have been very committed to titles in the past, only to be overlooked by developers for years on end. So within our gaming subculture, we prefer to create our own discussion platforms and communities for titles, and Escape From Tarkov is no different. That should explain why there are so few 'ZA' members participating on this forum. We have our own Facebook group, coupled with a discord, teamspeak and whatsapp group. The facebook group is fairly active with over 400 members and growing daily. It is not a lot compared to most other communities, but it is enough for us. Whether @Little77 is even aware that these groups exist I do not know. As an extremely active member in the South African gaming, I can say that I have never heard of Little77. I have no doubt he is an awesome guy with great intentions, but I think I speak for the majority of our communities' members when I say we would rather have Twinkie. If nothing can be done about the elected position, I implore Little77 to actually join our local community. Thanks, Herco.
