TITANFAIL

Here’s some worrying news for those excited for EA’s biggest game this year. Apparently, Titanfall has been cancelled in South Africa. That, according to Mweb Gamezone, seems to be the case for digital copies of the game purchased via EA’s Origin digital distributions service.

One of their readers alerted them to their Origin Pre-order being cancelled – with the report stating that the order was binned because network tests in South Africa showed the game to perform sub-optimally.

MediaHandler

In our own tests of the beta, the game suffered with pretty bad latency, but was still more than playable, which makes this decision pretty baffling. If true, there’s going to be a small riot, especially since it’s easily the most hyped game this year.

Ea’s confirmed the cancellation via Facebook. 

After conducting recent online tests for Titanfall, we found that the performance rates in South Africa were not as high as we need to guarantee a great experience, so we have decided not to release Titanfall in South Africa at this time. 

We understand this is a disappointment for local fans and will keep fans posted on any future plans regarding the release of Titanfall in South Africa

      Officially? Of course.
      Unofficially though, probably not.

            We have some very advanced hydro stations actually. Well 10 years ago they were, but still they are all stand by units, that never get used… I think Eskom has forgotten about them.

            They are used everyday during peak times, most of them are pump stations.
            Pump water to high level during off peak and let it flow down during peak demand. Like a big ass battery.

            Most of the skilled people were hired on by Eskom as contractors.
            Last year Eskom decided not to renew any contracts.
            They didn’t even tell half of the managers.

            March 7, 2014 at 08:48

            That’s why they didn’t tell the managers.
            By the time the managers realized what was going on most of the contractors were in their final weeks.

            I know of someone who was supposed to receive specialized training but it was supposed to start a month after his contract expired.
            The other person who was supposed to receive the same training had even left Eskom and the manager who organized the training was never informed.

        We could always go to Botswana since we are supplying 90% capacity for their use, apparently one of their generators broke at Marupele. So load shedding due to wet coal = Bullshit. So lets go to Botswana and host some servers, 100% uptime baby!

    Ok, that blows, I know there were a number of people here who were really excited for it, and that’s just shitty.

    SA Gamer’s should either start, or find a lobbyist group in SA, who are pushing to get the Government to improve the broadband infrastructure. From an educational standpoint, it’s simply vital to the populace (which is a major selling point, from a gaming standpoint it’s difficult to get widespread public appeal…telling them that it’ll help their children and themselves with literally any problem they’ll ever have…that’s hard to ignore)..

            Part of the problem is the belief in things based on no evidence, not because they believe it, but because they allow those beliefs to play a role in setting policy. That kind of behavior cannot be tolerated by the populace.

It’s still one of the few countries where the fucking MAJORITY question the veracity of the data supporting evolution. They want to teach creationism in school, right alongside evolution…with no evidence…none…

            Well…without going into too much detail, while I’m sure my personal values places me on the left, my feelings toward the Church push me right out of both camps.

            To put it simply, you don’t see Scientists trying to force content into Bible studies, so I will not tolerate the sheeple of the world trying to force their fiction into science classes. 😉

            Teaching the controversy, actually gives creationism floor time in a class that’s supposed to be dedicated to learning…real, observable facts/data about our world/universe. It should not even have that luxury. It shouldn’t even be allowed on school grounds as far as I’m concerned. Save it for Bible studies, Church, or a private religious school.

            If this wasn’t so fucking pathetic, it might be funny (you’re not from America, feel free to laugh). Check this out:

            11% of American’s think HTML is an STD

            23% though an MP3 was a Star Wars Robot.

            18% identified Blu Ray as a marine animal

            That’s one of those things where yes, it’s funny – but at the same time it’s really not funny.

            This is why democracy is breaking down – too much ignorance. And what’s even worse, and what truly pisses the living crap out of me – IGNORANCE IS FUCKING CELEBRATED AS A VIRTUE, while knowledge is treated with suspicion. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!

            One day, I truly hope humans will figure out how to separate belief from what we actually know. And you’re absolutely correct, people not only celebrate ignorance, but freely admit it. If you watched the Bill Nye vs Ken Ham Evolution v Creationism debate, he literally says his understand of science begins with the Bible….literally, and he was proud that he was actually debating a scientist on something he has absolutely no serious education on.

            Games bought from the online store (Xbox live) are region locked, but not physical copies. Not sure about the IP blocking though…

            This is incorrect too. Where are you even getting this info?
            I have a physical copy of Forza, which works fine. And all my other games (BF4 etc) are digital – and work fine too.

            It actually seems like that is specifically about buying digital codes – not buying from the store. So if your region is UK and you buy a US code from eBay etc, it may stop working.
            But so far I can’t find a real confirmation of people getting locked out of physical or digital copies (directly from the store).

            March 7, 2014 at 12:24

            Okay so it isn’t really an issue then at all, except if EA blocks IPs, which I can’t think they will even contemplate. It’s not like Titanfall is illegal in SA or anything.

      I played the beta in SA on XB1 and although the ping wasn’t great (around 200ms – on 10Mb unshaped), the game magically compensated for it, and it was never a problem. It felt like it had less network lag than in BF with half the ping.
      So I’m happy to be buying it when it comes out in the US digital XB store, with my US XB account.

    So 2 weeks back we had an international ‘local’ competition where everyone lost their shit over the ping differences. Now EA actually said, yes the pings are shit, sorry but we can’t support South Africa because your experience will suck. We have more dignity than to release a shitty experience to the public. Here have your money back.

    Yet Activision/Blizzard with their billions of money for international servers, release Diablo3 with its rubber banding, connection issues, horrible spikes and very high latency and just don’t give a shit. Releases it to every PC gamer only for profit no matter how shit the experience.

    And EA are once again the bad guys.

        Yes, and I am not discounting their previous mishaps. But for once they are not chasing profits and apologising after they have taken all your monies.

        There is also a certain irony that some think BF4 is a crappy experience, yet are perfectly willing to play Titanfall at 200ms+

          Playing at 200ms+ is better than crashing to desktop and losing all your progress at random.

            Having played online shooters at 200ms+, while not ideal, its still better than random crashes to desktop and losing all your progress. You can at least adjust for the lag, you can’t adjust for losing loads of hours of play and randomly having that play interrupted.

          • Rags

            March 7, 2014 at 10:08

            200ms is unplayable. Unless its for something as mindless like Planetside 2. Nothing can make up for it.
            I’ve only experienced crashes between map changes before patch 1 in BF4. Haven’t had any issues at all since. Not one single crash. What has always been more annoying is high latency (60ms+) and lag spikes. This is the in game experience that can completely ruin it.

            Planetside 2 is NOT mindless, what makes you say something silly like that?

            March 7, 2014 at 10:29

            With so many in the game your choices and skills have a very diminished impact on the outcome. The mechanics are also very simplistic and forgiving. Not knocking the fun factor.

        With EA being one of the biggest publishers surely they can afford to put a few local titanfall servers up, surely the cost of this would be covered by profit of titanfall sales being a huge game release.

        I’m pretty upset with EA with their response regarding titanfall. no urgency just cancel it rather than fixing the problem.

        I probly wont buy another local EA game until I see action, i’d rather pay a little extra and import to stop EA SA from getting a Cent of mine. And I buy alot of EA games.

    Anyone who buys a game based on network reliability is a chump. Say what you like but multi player was only ever an add on to titles for a very long time for a reason. This is all part of the reason many ex xbox gamers went ps4…. ill keep my pc for microsoft titles but im well off the bone wagon.
