Speaking as a South African I feel that Epic neglects African servers and feels that it is not worthwhile because of common misconceptions and stereotypes. Fortnite is played by relatively as much people here in South Africa as it is in Europe and America. Epic along with many other groups feel that Africa is underdeveloped and that people lack the resources to take advantage of these servers. I constantly play on 180 - 200 ping. This high latency often results in blank hit markers, travel lag (eg when you are running to zone and the distance you ran didnt register on the server resulting in you being pulled back a bit), slow weapon changes, slow changes when you want to switch to your builds and "choking" certain builds like wall ramp floor. And no, it is not my wifi. I along with many of my friends have good wifi which certainly doesn't help if there are no Africa servers. Please get this word out to help us get African servers!!! We are just as good in competitive situations as many other people who have servers in their country. We just need the opportunity to show our skills. Honestly if Epic doesn't add African servers, im going to lay low and stop playing fortnite all together... And yes, we have technology here in Africa...And to answer your second question, no we do not go to bed hungry...

aweh bruh im from sa and i actually think its looking good mahn
hopefully it happens ....i need to go bellow my constant 180 ping
also seems as if fortnite might be making servers...i mean if you think about it their game is growing...not just in sa..everywhere....so if more pople play they have to make more servers to account for the people on a high ping all the time

Honestly, the platform that needs the servers the most is iOS, in iOS you get these: Teleportation glitch, touch glitch (when you can’t open chests and more), sometimes can’t pick up items, can’t deploy glider and more!

Hey my mans ! I understand that we might get SA servers but if you see other games it’s hard to find players on SA servers ! Maybe it will take a while to find a match on SA ? 😬

Fair enough, but look at all the other aws servers and they are not in game. So just because there are aws servers for forntite or whatever they call ig doesn't mean we'll have it ign as soon as servers are available. Epic games still needs to add it themselves and with the feedback we been getting from them it doesn't look they care
