: Riot has addressed this before. They recently sent some people to assess the situation in SA, but decided against taking action because the limited player base would mean excessively long queue times or certain games only being available at certain times during a week. I'm playing from Cape Town, and have had plenty of games where the lag and ping spikes have made ranked games unplayable. It not only ruins my game, but my team's as well. Few things in League are worse than dealing with 300–1000 ping spikes while receiving death threats and cancer-related abuse from European teenagers. So yeah, I for one would happily wait 15-20 minutes in a queue if it guaranteed decent ping and a more enjoyable game experience.
