  • Forced to play America Battle Cup on South America server


    Yesterday we got to the finals of our battle cup. Game found, press accept!... It took me several reconnects and closing my game to get connected which has never happened, I kept getting stuck at "Connecting..." Finally join in, cool it's just reserve time lost. Finish draft without issues, get into the game and we're all averaging 200+ MS.

    Both prior games were played on US West:
    Game 1 Dotabuff
    Game 2 Dotabuff

    Using "Status" in the game produced these results:
    Of our team:
    Ebagen02 (No idea)
    Slicedbread (LA Region, California) [Cable]
    Ultrawolf (Yakima, Washington) [Centurylink DSL]
    FEAR'S BIG DONG (Silverdale, Washington) [Cable]
    And myself Decix (Portland, Oregon) [Fibresphere Fibre] Speedtest

    Here are my server pings as of 10:35 AM PST on 7/24/2016

    Here's the real kicker.. These are 4/5 of our opponents for number of games played in South America servers ever:
    Opponent #1
    Opponent #2
    Opponent #3
    Opponent #4
    Only one of them has ever played more than that battle cup game in the SA server.

    Please look into why this game was forced into this server. It really left a bitter taste in our mouths after having a lot of fun during the cup.

    I lost 3 battle cups because of South American servers, valve should do something about it.All your effort in first 2 games on use/usw is useless if you got SA in 3rd
