Amazon direct connect to new servers hosted in Bahrain. Pretty decent latency. :)

Games that have Middle East servers on AWS should have pretty decent latency via AWS direct connect.

Fortnite is one of them.

Dev and Warehouse is looking into the issue. I was able to replicate the issue. Did not quite get the RICA but now I see the RICA issue should not be there. ;)
Hey Man,

Any update on this one - If the delivery fee is reduced, then I dont mind going through with it.

The Rica issue was resolved I'm waiting for Warehouse to change the delivery fee to R99.

Services are starting to come back online. We are seeing DHCP request which is coming in at a rapid pace. If your router fails to obtain an IP please don't restart it it will get an IP soon.

They are a bit high but I've seen this before where Blizzard does funny things with routing and our Transit provider Openserve uses alternatives to reach the server.
