There is alot of talk in the community in South Africa. There is a friendly tournament that has to be put on hold because there is no rentable local servers. After the may update netcode tweaks the European servers are still not playable for south africans, and since its the only region we can rent servers in there in nothing we can do but wait. Generally the latency players get on European servers ranges from 190 to 300 , if there is no local servers coming atleast increase the penalty limit to 300 ping for south africans on European servers. @Braddock512

    The people in other parts of africa should also be included in the latency penalty increase, since they also experience lag on European servers

    If it's not there now, I seriously doubt it will be added. If it was the old way (and better) to rent servers, then you would of had one.

    Yeah with RSP being locked down, your only hope is the next game dice decides to go back to 3rd party rentals. Dice just doesn't have the man power or the knowledge to do servers.

    My guess is BF1 will be the last time we have the option to rent servers. EA already took away something that worked and gave us a POS RSP that really doesn't work plus they stall on updating (months) when things could get fixed in days. I just see them making it so bad that we won't ask for dedicated servers again..

    Unfortunately, I can't give you an ETA since the last update guys, but David Sirland is already aware of this.



    I hope we can get some official word any time soon.

    We have a community that is really passionate about BF...BF 1 made a huge leap and we are sitting with about 250 player that want to take part in our tourny..plus we are starting to loose players due to hitrate and also the connection we have with the Euro community.

    Battlefield 1 needs serious support to help grow the brand. We have assisted with videos about the condition of our servers and also been promoting a lot of Battlefield 1 and 4 content on our facebook group..Battlefield RSA.

    We invest a serious amount of time to help the community....but we need to see some light in yhe tunnel here!!! The original post is from one of our member and as we all are...adore BF1...

    Help us..help you!!!
