Hello, I would love to join in that feedback conversation with you guys. Because I feel strongly positive about SoStronk future in the eSports world.
First of all, I feel like keeping EU consumers waiting another 4-6 months would be an overkill as many of them will just forget about this platform and the possible customers / players would leave the platform and will keep on playing on FaceIT or ESEA. I have seen and advert on PGL live stream which has high viewership from EU players. Being able to see that I have thought that servers for EU players are available and we will be able to compete on this platform and give a structured feedback to making this platform better each day. Nevertheless, many europeans are not even able to queue as the ping is too high and the client won't allow that to happen.
Even implementing and looking for "test" servers from European server providers would be a good step forward as you could gain much more constructed feedback about the European market. SoStronk have a huge opportunity to gain a good recognition especially with the partnership with PGL.
As I said keeping EU players waiting might be an overkill and will possibly reduce the interest significantly, in my opinion having talks with server providers would be a good step forward before SoStronk can obtain their own servers within the EU. It might be costly, but it will definitely allow SoStronk to gain a huge recognition especially with this business structure that I feel personally is really well formed and can give a customer a good in-game experience.
Especially now is a period of a time that EU have holidays and most players look for more complex platforms to play on and try something new. SoStronk have that opportunity to encourage Europeans to play on their platform due to the point system for which you don't have to pay in order to be able to receive pool that would allow them to buy skins. In the holiday period Faceit alone have 15,000-20,000 players online in the holiday period. Implementing servers much quicker and allow people to play on this platform and test it out in a holiday period would be really productive as it will encourage more people to try the platform as they have more time to spare on playing and testing new things. Whereas in a school period giving the fact that majority of CS:GO players are aged 16-19 might not have time to try new platforms and will rather stay with the "tested" providers that they have been playing before.
