Valve launches new CS:GO and Dota 2 servers in SA

If you remember a few weeks ago we got some reports of players having some rather nasty issues with the local Valve servers. While we used to host the servers at MWEB, we heard from Valve that they were moving their servers in an attempt to "expand the official datacenter to South Africa. The real reason behind the downtime was the servers being migrated to a new host. We do know where this host is, however, but we do know that they are based in SA. 

There was a lengthy downtime during this migration as both MWEB and IS hosted Valve servers in the past, and when this "expansion" commenced, these servers suffered some issues. While this is no longer the case. Valve's new servers are a mystery to us as we are not sure where they are situated. The truth of the matter is that Valve did not "expand" anything during this time, but rather just rolled out their own servers and shut down the ones that were hosted by IS and MWEB.

Valve has now issued us with a request to shut down our servers, so we no longer have control over them or can do anything about the latency issues user might face for any reason. All we know is that the new servers are up and that they are based in SA.
