I mean they can't really create a path if their only "proper" routing for most people is via the AWS Johannesburg, the only way around most of the bad routing is forcing paths to route in EU AWS if you are in Cape Town as an example. Pretty sure every ISP is having routing issues with amazon at the moment, given their recent hiccups and such.
For the people that live in that region?
I mean honestly, I would love to play on EU again because MEA has some of the most toxic and terrible quality of games and competition. It's mostly smurfs and people trying out stuff over there. That said, Durban has 190ms for me to the Overwatch EU servers which puts us within around 2-3ms over or below (depending on the server) where lag compensation and the netcode stops helping you.For the people that live in that region?
Most people still prefer to manually choose EU anyway because of shorter queue times and a higher level of competition.
I still get 170ms to Paris AWS.I mean honestly, I would love to play on EU again because MEA has some of the most toxic and terrible quality of games and competition.

You can also feel the difference between 150ms and 190ms in-game instantly. I miss the days when ixp routing via cloudflare could net us 169ms to France (177 in-game). Note, I am not on fibre yet, but have pretty low latency ADSL.
any contact number for the AWS africa team ?
They keep f***king with the routes then i need to explain to my son who bugs me while am working
every 2nd day they seem to be messing with the routes
Have tried to speak to them and Blizzard. Honestly, it ain't going to happen anytime soon where we have good routing for MEA since the routes change all the time and AWS, as websquad has said before, is focusing on stability vs latency.
Not much the AWS NOC's can do.
Just had loadshedding end at 8:30, fibre been fine the whole time and now totally dead, red lights on ONT. Octotel, Wynberg CPT. Anyone else also down on Octotel?
EDIT - turns out to be our whole block, looks to be getting fixed.
My connection just died. Am I alone?
No, mine as well. trying to log a ticket but the support website page is just hanging. Looks to be just me in my area - neighbors are all working fine.
Edit: Connection just cam back now.
Can you be more specific?Anyone else having issues with twitch this morning?
Vumatel Aerial, Rivonia JHB.Looks like a 3rd party link in London (Network layer is a 3rd party network, not on our network or upstream's network). It's been escalated to our upstream who are now reaching out to network layer (seeing as they are peers).
FNO and area please? No core issues on our side.
