    South African Servers

    Hi Guys

    Local Servers here in South Africa would be awesome, as the "MOBA"/Smite community is growing and local Servers might even attract more players from the Dota/LoL scene!

    Playing with 200-300ms latency isn't always the coolest thing around! Having that reduced would let us play the game as it was intended to be played!!!

    Local competitions, leagues! Maybe even a South African team in the World Championship event!!! A great way to boost the E-Sporting scene here in South Africa!

    Some feedback would be awesome!

    Sadly in itself South Africa isn't a big enough "scene" to populate their own servers relative to NA/EU/South America or start their own Leagues. LoL doesn't even have that for South Africa.

    Yet Dota has servers here in South Africa.
    I don't see why this would not be a possibility especially with the oceanic servers having just gone live.

    Maybe eventually, but the game just isn't quite big enough yet. It sucks, I know, but the MM is atrocious and I get connected to people speaking the wrong language anyway.

    As people have said, there would have to be enough players to sustain their own server. And at the moment, I don't think it would work. You can see this with the Aus server, there aren't enough people to sustain the queues for certain times. People wait 20+ minutes for league matches when it's Aus off-times.

    i don't think there's enough players in south africa to warrant this, sadly.
