South African Server????

Recommended Posts

Hey Devs there is quite a few of us playing this now. Any chance of a South African server so we don't have to play with 200-300 ping a get our arses handed to us because of high ping.

yip, its very annoying, i average with around 225 ping, can never rush for factory key or marked room, buying anything on fence is a waste of time, by the time u refresh its gone, never mind the guys running scripts to buy stuff.

Servers will be added in time, you are able to change servers however, so you could find one where you lag less.

The problem is the closest servers at the moment are the EU servers and due to the sheer distance which the data needs to travel we won't have a ping lower than 200ms no matter which server/region we choose.

I know for a fact that there are ISP's here in SA which will be more than willing to host servers at no cost to BSG.  So guys please consider it sooner rather than later - it will definitely aide in decreasing the load on the EU servers and add a big customer base.

Right, how many people play from South Africa? As adding servers are not that easy so more people that reply to this thread, say if we got like a few hundred that may help.

Issue is that people like myself will never buy this game because of latency even though I would love to play it. Essentially you'll never get "enough" of a player base to justify bringing servers to South Africa due to people like me not buying it.

There is a lot of people who are playing the game right now and many many more from South Africa who is interested but on the fence due to people complaining about the latency from South Africa to EU servers which is the nearest, and 200ms +- is not the best for this game, it would be really appreciated if we can get servers here, it will attract so much more people to buy and enjoy this game here.

I don't really care tbh. feel free to make threads about bringing servers to that place but don't get sad as it will never happen. Have you tried moving to the uk?
