Middle East Servers
Add Middle East servers 4Weird
It's time for a Middle East server. And Arabic language on twitch website.
Streamer Jahrein just interviewed with Turkish opposition leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu in Twitch. It is first in the world event yet there is no twitch ingest server in Turkey.
I opened a case for Twitch Turkey ingest server but it got removed and moved to here. I support Middle East server but I want a Turkey server. A server opened in Middle East won't help Turkish viewers since it will probably be same with Frankfurt servers.
Optimizations for Middle east servers are required as delays/lag is being seen in region when opening any twitch channel/page on any network via Karachi, Pakistan.
pqueenn just broke the Turkish viewer record with 360k viewer and still there is no twitch ingest server in Turkey.
It will be really beneficial for both Twitch as a company and its user base to have Twitch servers in Turkey. Not only users having constant problems watching streamers, but also streamers are having huge problems steaming their videos in Turkey right now and it is both damaging brand identity of twitch and amazon as well. Some of the popular twitch streamers already left twitch and moved on to the other platforms.
In 2020, Turkey had records views on twitch. In fact, turkish streamers had record concurrent viewer counts and subscriptions (after amazon prime entering turkey). I think we deserve better streaming environment in Turkey.
I just started streaming from Pakistan last week and the only reasonable Ingest server for me was the Singapore one but a few days after streaming on it, the ping went from 102 to 180 and now I can't even stream at 720p60, I barely even get 3500 bitrate when I used to get 5000 bitrate before. Hundreds or thousands of people from SA or ME would love to stream on twitch with good quality if we had Ingest servers near us. Please look into it as I really want to go long term with twitch and so many others from Pakistan would love to shift over to twitch with even a single server usable for us, even bringing more than 100k+ viewers that streamers from my country on other platforms get.
IF they open one, the UAE would probably be a better choice, they appear to be second in speed, and more central than Morocco which is first.
I actually give up hope that twitch will consider the middle east. better stream on youtube, they got a good support for the middle east. twitch don't care
can u please add servers in middle east
Start one in Israel. one in pakistan/india. and one in saudi arabia. so there would be an end to end coverage of servers for middle eastern content creators. making their ping normal and watchable. so many have such a hard time providing a quality stream and this could really help us.
Can you please add servers to the middle east, we have loads of content creators and we can seem to find good servers to provide for our audience. Content creation is big in the middle east, I hope Twitch could add servers which will benefit both the company and the content creators. Thank you
I am in India and we have no servers and the Twitch quality is horrible. We have been trying to tell you but you never listen or dont care. On YouTube I can easily stream at 20k bitrate while on Twitch its 2500. Please Twitch! India doesent even have Twitch Prime!
I am from Karachi, Pakistan and I am unable to stream properly on twitch as i get high latency on it so please launch Middle east /Pakistani servers for twitch. Due to the unavailability of these servers. I am either directed to Mumbai, Singapore or EU servers on which i get 140ms plus ping if there will be middle east servers. I will be getting around 10 to 40ms ping which would be perfectly fine for low latency streams.
As Pakistan is the 6th most populated country in the world and the increase in gamers/streamers in Pakistan is rapid so it is necessary for you guys to take these feedback seriously if you dont take action against this now then Pakistanis will be forced to stream on other platforms like Mixer, YouTube etc and grow their community there.
