The current state of the South African Valve servers | Update

MWEB no longer hosts the South African CS:GO servers. This means we are unable to assist with any issues regarding matchmaking, ping, and other disconnection problems that you may face while playing the game. 

Update ends

If you have been playing any CS:GO or Dota 2 today you would have noticed that there has been some rather nasty connection issues and high pings. Well, this is due to Valve's current process of moving the servers in an attempt to "expand the official datacenter to South Africa". In the recent patch notes for CS:GO the developer mentioned that this was one of the changes, apart from other fixes and tweaks. 

It seems that Valve has shut down all South African servers in the process while this move is taking place, so expect issues when playing Dota 2 and CS:GO. We have reached out to Valve on the matter, to get an ETA and more information on this move, and will update you as soon as we have more. Take a look at the full patch notes below while you wait:

  • Expanded the official datacenter in South Africa.
  • Fixed a regression where the game couldn’t start on Windows XP.
  • Added game state integration output for timeouts and match pause.
  • Added game state integration output for the bomb defuse countdown.
  • Server ban list filter is now enforced in early stages of client connection packet handling.
