Why the middle east server is not in the middle east?

Recommended Posts

Hi

Why the middle east servers, are in Istanbul? (which is exactly right next to Europe ...) why not put it in the middle east? 
this is a huge problem for middle eastern players, as we are having relatively bad ping on the Turkish servers, and Europeans who play on the Turkish server, have better ping than us ...! it's like putting the USA server, in china ...

Why put the middle east server in Europe?  why not put the middle east server, in the middle east itself? you have countries like UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Israel, Iran, Iraq, Syria ...  which have data-centers and network infrastructure as good as Turkey, IF not BETTER!, and far far better connectivity with other middle eastern countries than Turkey; Turkey is basically next to Europe (especially Istanbul which one can say it's basically in Europe ...), and has very very bad connectivity with (other) middle eastern countries (Iran, Iraq, UAE, Israel, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi-arabia etc), because most middle eastern countries take majority of their bandwidth through optical-fibers which are going through Persian-gulf, Arabian sea, Red sea and South Atlantic ocean ...

Watch the submarine cable map,  UAE is the best place to put the middle east server in (it has the best connectivity with other middle eastern countries)  ... and it's a very safe place and has very good network infrastructure.

I am turkish, living in the UAE, and i agree completely. The UAE would be the prime place to put servers in rather than turkey.

I'm from Syria and i play on ME (tur) Server my ping is around 100...
lately im getting some problems, today, i was in mid match and i got server connection lost, i tried to reconect several times and each time it says "connecting to server" it disconnect again. also i would like to mention some players from US and UK are abusing the ME server, they are connecting with 200-300 ping just for easy loot. They are sooo laggy that it make the experiance for us in the ME really bad. Please for the love of god fix these issues. Thanks. I also agree with Persian Warrior. Istanbul server is not good for ME.

Well, Turkey is one of the few somewhat stable countries in the region. If not there - it may be placed in Israel (then I'll have a great ping :D maybe Jordan and UAE

one of the few stable countries? :)
you have Iran as well ... and saudi arabia ... Oman ... Bahrain ... these with the ones you mentioned make 6 countries ... how many stable countries do you have in north america? :)
(not gonna argue on Iraq and Syria with you, as most people have no clue about the reality in these countries ...)

BTW between the 7, turkey is the least stable! it's at war. there was a military coup not a long time ago. and lots of terrorist attacks in the past few years ...

and most importantly, turkey is almost in Europe ...! the middle east server should be in the actual middle east ... not a country on the boundary of middle east, almost in Europe, and with terrible connectivity with other middle eastern countries, and far better connectivity with Europe ...

- Politics has nothing to do with renting a server. 
- Infrastructure is pretty good in almost all ME countries, You have, UAE, Iran, Kuwait, Bahrain, Jordan, Saudi Arabia all with stable Infrastructure.
In my opinion, UAE (Dubai) is the best choise for a true ME server. For example Battlefield 1 has server in Dubai and Friends of main from Iraq, Iran and Syria have pings between 30- 70.  While in the current tarkov ME server which is located in Istabul, has 200-600 ping for Middle easterns. People from UK have better ping on Tukish server than middle easterns....

Politics does if two countries have trade embargoes on one another, and/or if said countries runs high censorship or oversight. For example, high censorship countries usually bottleneck all traffic coming in and out through centralized servers. Or, government is the only service provider, and highly review all traffic.

Things may be a bit slow :P\

That being said, UAE usually has good latency.

I live in Dubai and when trying to connect to Turkey server which as you have stated is actually in the middle east I get a very high ping of 160 ~ 170ms, and the game is unplayable. We urge you to have a new server in either Dubai or Bahrain (Amazon) like other titles do.

A message to BSG we are not asking for 10-20 servers we would like at least one server and then see how it goes from there. I do not know how big or small the player base is for the game but I do know that a server in UAE specifically Dubai will be perfect for the middle east and perfect for all players from Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Oman, Syria, Israel and many more. It makes a huge difference to play on 60 and less ping than 120+ ping game play wise and makes the game fun a lot more. It will also reduce how many times people die behind cover.

lol , because they are Nikita , they are lazy enough to care about normal players .
But when the streamer complain about something in the game , they change it immediately.

There is but it is the same as the Turkey server for us so it is also 120+ ping.
