    I suspect all the high ping locations are due to peering occurring in Europe rather than in ME. It is similar to the problem we have in South America where most of the peering is done back in North America. Some people will be happy, and the rest will be asking for more "servers".

    Easily said, the best country that has a suitable ping for all the countries in the middle east, not only Bahrain, would be UAE.
    Dubai would also be good as an environment.
    None of the countries you have listed have a good ping for all of the countries, but if valve had to pick one of them then it would definitely be KSA.
    Even though the environment is different than Dubai, so i believe UAE would be the best choice for opening a server.

      Hey, can you tell me how you pinged to those countries?
      Any specific IP adresses?
      I'd like to know my ping to them too.

        Well I've played around with some speedtest.com servers, and it seems I got lower ping to the Luxembourg server than Middle east countries.
        Strange...

          Yes refer to miltons post. i am going to consult my isp on the routing matter and will see if they agree to do some optimization. i suggest you also to do the same. and if anyone playing from uae they can consult etisalat easily coz they have a friendly customer-service.

          for me routing within middle east is great unlike others!

            well reporting from Istanbul, Turkey. I have average 60 ms ping which is absolutely fine. But a server in eastern Turkey would be fine for middle-easternean players.

              I understand, but this problem occurs to most of the players from the ME. We have no options in the servers therefore we are forced to bear with the lag and such. This happens to the most of us and opening a new server would be a huge problem fixer.

                Well my results are horrible
                I got 48ms to my own country lol





                What I don't understand is though that in Dota 2 EU West server which would be Luxembourg my ping varies between 150-370ms.
                It depends on the game if I'm lucky I get the 150 or the 370 or anything in between.
                But I learnt that when I have 370ms ping sometimes when I restart my internet connection and reconnect to the game it's possible (50% chance) that I get a way better ping (200 maybe).
                Any ideas what the reason to this might be?

                    Also let me know the public ip and time of day when you did the trace. Some providers have different routes for different IP address ranges. This is to balance out their traffic but it makes latency vary depending on which path you are taking. They might even be dynamically shifting stuff around in which case it gets much harder.

                      Well a new server for Middle eastern countries would be good because
                      -->We don't have to rely upon other far away servers
                      -->Those other servers would be free from our load.

                          Valve is the best out there, I am sure they will find the best solution in the end. but a ME server would be great

                                I don't actually play dota myself but I believe if you type -ping into the chat window you can see your in game ping. But what I am more interested in is the out from the ping and tracert command from a dos prompt. Run these commands with an ip of one of our EU datacenters you are laying in

                                Eu west 146.66.152.1
                                Eu east 146.66.155.1
