    Thanks @Striterax - very good news today about official DICE servers for South Africa.

    Hopefully "early 2017" is not late May...

    Since you only mentioned official DICE servers, would we also be able to rent servers in South Africa at that point, or is that not part of the plan?

    Early 2017 to me sounds like the first quarter, meaning not later than march. Confirmation that i3D are most likely hosting the servers for BF 1 so hopefully we will have servers right after new years I would guess, or hope is more the feeling:D.

    Even though no official comment was provided from official members of EA and DICE in this discussion, I find shortsighted. I would like to thank those that worked to make this happen (even though it should have been there in the first place as pointed out by @Phr33Dumb).

    With all this being said, thanks you to @Striterax for keeping us updated on other discussions and also everyone who worked on making this happen and those that supported our cause on this forum and social media ([Special shoutout:] JackFrags and Battle(non)sense)!

    To the gamers in SA see you on the Battle field "soon" :smile:

    Do you reckon it will include some PS4 servers as well? Or PC only?

    No conformation on that yet, but I'm sure the Master Race will back us peasants if we don't get servers as well.

    EDIT: I stand corrected, @striterax did actually confirm on twitter that it applies to all platforms. Tonight i'll sleep sound.....

    I feel bad for you guys having to wait so long to get a decent server to play on. :-/

    I feel good..GREAT that we are getting servers. It is not really EA and DICE fault that infrastructure is not the best in certain regions and also that other stakeholders needs to be thrown in to the equation.

    The glass can be either half full or half empty, I will be drinking my glass full of beer:D in celebration!

    We're relieved that the cat is finally out of the bag and you guys got what you deserve.
    You probably didn't notice, but we cut you a lot of slack in this thread because we know how important this was for you.

    But we would really appreciate it if comments conform to forum rules from here on.

    Thanks for understanding.

    hahaha :smiley: That's South Africans right there, we did it guys, we got the fat cat's attention, and we are getting servers. Now if we can only do the same to get rid of our president Jacob Zuma. Thanks so much for listening and putting up with us moderators. Whoooo hooooo!!!!!

    REVOLUTION MK2 COMMENCE!
