Investigate South African Peering Server Viability for all Blizzard games.

This petition had 2,262 supporters

For many years only a few South Africans had the accessibility to play online games but recently things have started to change and we have even had great e-sports players enter the world arena.

Many gamers now have access to a fairly decent internet connection and at the very least play one of your games. With the launch of Overwatch there were many South Africans that bought it and we even started having local tournaments. In the past Blizzard game latencies had a very mild impact on gameplay and thus did not detract from the fun to be had.

However with a FPS like Overwatch high latency makes the game a lot less fun and even "favour the shooter" does not help one bit. In most cases twitch reactions are just not good enough and some characters are all but playable.

This petition is designed to firstly gather all those who agree with it to one place and secondly if we get enough signups to ask for a simple investigation as to the viability and cost to host a Blizzard peering server.
