Thanks for your reply @Hawkinz it's much appreciated.

If I might paint a picture for you...... Us South Africans are vocal here, on the forums as we see it as a official way to communicate with the powers that be. We generally seem to get the ass end of the stick when it comes to server support for most if not all games. For us it is a constant battle to play with +200ms ping, as we have to connect to servers either in the EU or worse the US. I'm not sure if you ever had to suffer the injustice of gaming with hi latency, but i can attest that although, for the most part we try and live with it, it is most infatuating. This is particularly the case when we are asked to pay the full price for games and are not afforded the service/support too experience  the games as they were intended to be played.

Please forgive our eagerness to draw your attention to our plight, we do understand that the game is still only days old, but we have found in the past, that if we are not vocal in the early days, so to speak that we get lost in the wash. Seen in this light, please understand that when ping lock gets mentioned by the devs, and server support has not even been mention, people tend to get upset.

A word from the dev's would go along way to put the minds of your loyal supporters here in South Africa at ease.

We gladly await a response.

As always keep up the good work, we do appreciate what yous do for us!!

The game has been in early access for a week.

Be patient please mate.

Interest for regional servers isn't solely based on the interest on these forums, guys.

Exactly, I am from South Africa and while a ping lock with no servers would render the purchase pointless for us(in which case I still want a refund). Some of you okes are going on as if you already can't play. Give the devs some time to make a decision and then bitch if its needed.

Hi everyone,

PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS team is committed to rolling out servers to every region where there is a big enough player base to warrant it.

Unfortunately, not all regions will have their own official servers due to limited player numbers, as the PUBG wants all players to have a quick, fast experience of being able to load into lobbies and have them fill quickly so you can all play lots of high player count games without much downtime waiting for a match to start.

The system used to deploy servers for PUBG means that new servers for new regions can be spun up and put into use extremely quickly, so if there is enough demand from a particular region, servers will be made for your region.

If its the case that your region simply doesn't have enough players for the PUBG team to offer official servers with fast filling, high player count games, down the line sometime after early access there will be a chance for unofficial servers to be ran in your local regions. 

--

If you wish to post about below about wanting servers in your region, you've very welcome to do so! But the best thing you can do, is just get in there with your friends and start playing the game and show the PUBG team that your region has enough players playing the game to warrant servers. :)

SOUTH AMERICAN SERVERS: CONFIRMED
OCEANIC SERVERS: CONFIRMED

South East Asia(SEA) server please. Gamers from Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and neighbourhood countries can play with no high ping. Also: we dont have to join other server and trouble other people with our high ping. Server base in Singapore or Malaysia will be best. Thank you , we're waiting 😀

Caraca, eu coloquei terça feira no post anterior, como o dia que liberam o server SA, mas é quinta!

...o cara colocou thursday e não tuesday!!

Mula!!

Para de reclamar mano, idai que ele errou o dia? Você devia estar feliz que eles vão colocar servers no Brasil ao invés de ficar reclamando por causa de 2 dias de diferença, credo.

why release a game to the world if you only going to keep a certian % of the people happy

The majority are happy, if there are enough players from south africa, THEY WILL bring servers to south africa.

Not because people are begging in the forum, this is not a reason to bring servers to south africa.

They know what they are doing, if they don't want to bring servers to south africa because this place have a low player base, this is a smart decision.

You can't know how many people are in South Africa playing this game right now, just because 30 people are complaining in the forum.

SOUTH AFRICA servers please?

If we do get servers for PUBG before H1Z1 servers land here, I'm pretty sure whoever is playing H1Z1 in South Africa will play PUBG instead.
