It would be nice if they give us a LoL server to SA.....Please, AfriHost, do your magic trick
(Dell XPS L502X) Intel Core i7 2630QM | 6GB DDR3 1333MHz | Nvidia GT 525M 1GB DDR3 | Intel HD Graphics 3000 | 15.6" WLED HD Display | 500GB 7200RPM HDD
I wonder if people would still vote yes if it meant them having to create a new account and losing access to all their champions, skins, runes, levels, etc.
I must say I am not keen at all for an SA server. Only playing vs SA players wont grow our skill as much as playing vs international teams. So what about the disadvantage, be proud with what you can achieve with 250 ping. Even with 250ms my teams finds it easy enough to dodge most things as long as you have movement prediction enabled. And when it comes to SA based tourneys you are all on the same level anyway so it shouldn't matter. Getting our hands on a local tourney client with everything unlocked would be awesome but I would still play on international.
But like i said the numbers wont allow it to happen locally. It was the same with WoW. The money that has to be spent to ensure the quality of service will not be covered by the number of players playing on the server.
What they could do is start to recognise more that Africa is actually also playing their game and maybe give us a bit more support for the biggest gaming expo in Africa than just some RP and skins.
But they could have given nothing also so it is what it is.
