Oceanic Servers for Australia and New Zealand

Dear Developers,

On behalf of the Oceanic Region players, I would like to implore you to implement severs for players located in Australia and New Zealand.

 

Now, I do not reside in either country, however I think EfT has huge potential, there is a vast amount of players located in said countries, and currently they are finding the game unplayable due to the desync issues. This is widely covered by streamers from that region, and I honestly think it would be in your best interest to do something on your end so that they as well may enjoy the game. As of now, those streamers are essentially tarnishing the gameplay quality of EfT, which is a potential problem for BST, seeing as how that sort of negative publicity may deter potential buyers from pre-ordering the game. I am sure those that have experienced this issue first hand will chime in on this conversation as well. From what I know, others have started threads like this to inform you of this issue in the past, and the general response from BST was "They will be added eventually". Well, the game is in Beta already, and I fear that if you stall this furthermore you may cause irreparable damage to EtF and BST, primarily the way they treat players. Bear in mind that we, those players, purchased your game in faith. Your company is new, it has no prior releases, hell, you don't even have a Wikipedia page, and your current approach seems to be literally to ignore the community. Show us some good faith.

Thank you for your consideration.

Thank Christ! someone who gets it!

It is at most times unplayable.

>Waiting 20 seconds for loot to appear

>Getting killed by someone you've just killed

>Getting in a gunfight, retreating, then suddenly dying because you died in said gunfight but didn't know it.

I paid 106 AU for "Prepare for Escape" and I fully intend to pay another 40 for an upgrade to "Edge of Darkness", But we desperately need Oceanic servers. Please DEVs, for all the thousands of people that want to play this masterpiece, I BEG YOU!

^ Well said. +1 from the region here  (NZ). Although i do not have access to the game in it's current state (expecting my key this week). I would also like to hear a developer response re: Oceanic Servers.

Getting a great game, one that you enjoy playing, and have it ruined by something that would be quite easily fixable if only the developers paid attention. I think this is the worst thing that could happen to player.

 This is totally a must asap, the amount of OCE streams and videos I've seen showing off the unplayability of this game really puts anyone off buying at all (well anyone who wasn't informed enough to hold of pre-ordering). This is just really poor as there have actually been people who work for companies that run servers in AUS like this person http://forum.escapefromtarkov.com/topic/1583-australian-servers/?do=findComment&comment=430078 (don't know if thats how you add a reply from another thread.. I'm a noob) and others in Aus offer services to you.. Please Please Please we implore you the longer this carries on I assure you, YOU WILL GET A BAD NAME. Streaming games is huge these days and if EVERY STREAMER in these regions showcase the terrible in game situation you can say goodbye to a large player base ( and don't be fooled the OCE region does have a large interest ). 

I come from NZ and I want to help TEST the game not just cutie about stuff.. I understand BETA testing but you can't expect us to pay and not play.

Also from the perspective of an Alpha/ Beta tester, the issue of Desync is well acknowledged by everyone on the forums including the staff at BSG, so why hasn't this problem been addressed? The only conclusion we can come to as to why this hasn't been addressed is because the issue, at its worst, targets players that are furthest away geographically from server locations. With out an official statement about why this issue has persisted for so long we are forced to speculate about why new locations haven't been implemented, and while these speculations are likely unfounded rumors they do lead to negative press about BSG and the game in general. It would satisfy all and lay the issue to rest if we can just get an official statement.

Oceanic servers would be great it covers a large area and would take the stress off USA and UK servers. making it better for the whole gaming community.

So someone is basically offering server sponsoring, a solution which most likely would not cost BST any money, they have to bite. This cannot continue.

I can tell you that they do know about it, but sometimes these issues are not easily fixable. Sometimes someone made a mistake early on in development, and to correct it would require a major code rewrite and that costs the developers money, but more importantly, takes time. The best thing they can do for now to remedy the issue is host more localized servers. You are right though, the issue could stem from higher latency connections.

Servers have been stated that will come to these areas when beta hits. 

#locked old post answered

 

Could that be any more vague? Can we get a date or something instead of just a shove off?

Most of my friends I play with are holding off on buying this game until they have oceanic servers. I cant really tell them to buy it in its current state but once Oceanic servers are up so many more people will buy into it. Pretty sure we will have our own servers throughout the beta phase sometime, someone from BSG said.

All I can say is, you guys need to get all your friends to come into this thread and comment, even if it's only a simple "+1". The previous thread got shut down with a response of "Servers have been stated that will come to these areas when beta hits." , if we get 30 pages of posts, it's going to be harder for them to dismiss it. Already we have multiple people stating that they have friends wanting to buy this game but are holding off due to the current gameplay quality. These numbers ultimately add up to sales for BST, sales which they need.

@pottricks"Closed Beta" not "open beta".

I assumed we would see something when open beta starts or at some point after it becomes open. I am from Western Australia and since the last 2x patches the desync has gotten worse.

I am waiting for a dev announcement about oceanic servers also.

When we connect to overseas servers ping is usually 300+.

Please BSG we need some answer as to when servers will be implemented.

no the exscuse will be this is closed beta not open beta. he also didnt say they will come at launch of beta, which means at some stage in the next 6 months to 2 years or how ever long the beta phase is, is when a server will come. doesnt say servers drop when betas drop.

as i said earlier, could be 2 weeks could be 2 years. no one has any idea including the devs as no one is currently doing anything about it. IF they were working on it then surely you would say were working on it currently it should be all good in about a months time. but no.

+1 to you,

 

Playing on EFT with the current desync and with 300+ ping, that will make alot of players quit.... I'm praying that the devs see the player base in Australia is struggling, and implement a server there, but only time will tell.....

Wow...I wasn't aware we Aussies didn't have dedicated servers, This is an astounding oversight on the Devs part. I hope this gets resolved ASAP!, Ignoring an entire country is not great, And is very damaging.

I believe it still exists, but offline mode is useless. I believe you can't acquire gear , its merely for practice.

Yep unplayable in online mode. At least give us a seperate offline mode that actually plays the same as online mode. Where you keep the stuff you find. That's all I'm asking.

They can come up with whatever excuse that they want, but whatever they do, if they won't put up an Aussie server, players will get pissed, they will get bored, and they will not play EfT. They will spread this among their friends, who will end up not buying the game so they don't waste money on something that isn't playable for them. Your move BSG.

i also think why there delaying it is because there a problem that showed up in an update that happen two updates ago that never use to exist  that its even effecting players who live local to there server i think there trying to fix this problem first befor rolling out our servers (maybe ) but yea i think that problem is on top of there list to fix first!!

So its essentially watching porn. Looks great, you kind of get the same feelings but ultimately, its pointless and not the same.

I too am in the same boat, I have lots of friends ive recommended keep an eye on the game, but cant suggest they buy it.
The constant lack of support from any game developer for the Oceanic region is starting to become a serious pain in the arse.
No server support, delayed access to beta's and game releases.
Now we have someone who is willing to host a server free of charge and still nothing. 
I know they've said beta. but realistically, we're looking at somewhere in the vicinity of 12months before THEY implement a server for the region. FFS. Ill be long bored by then and will have moved on along with everyone I know
