      Tips for Valve:

      - bring back the HK server,

      - remove the Austrian server (or the one in Luxembourg; no need for two Western servers),

      - rename the Swedish server to "Scandinavia",

      - move the "Russian"/"EU East" server to Ukraine or Russia (Kiev or Moscow),

      - optionally: servers for Australia and RPA (doesn't concern me).

      Hosting two supposedly Russian servers in Western and Northern Europe makes completely no sense whatsoever. Really. You want non-English-speaking Russians to play with fellow Russians - give them an incentive to do so. Currently they have better connection to EU West than either "Russia" or "EU East".

      I'm sure you know that pings come from not geographical distance, but from the routing distance. That's why some ISPs in Australia have horrible delay to SEA - they are routed to the USA and then back to Asia.

            We would still like an Australian server. If that is not the case, I play on SEA servers with 190ms (not sure if like)

              hello,
              It would be a great help if if were able to know our pings to the matchmaking servers while accepting the match.
              If we knew the pings are bad beforehand we wont accept the match and it would help many players to leave the match in between due to bad pings.


              PS :yeah bad english.

                I think they only host in countries that are "reliable" and by that i mean countries that take software legal stuff seriously. Ukraine and Russia has serious issues with these things.

                  Steam already have 3 "download regions" (Central, Ural and Siberia) in Russia, you can see it youself in steam settings->download + cloud menu. So i guess they will place dota 2 servers in Russia later...

                        Hello,

                        I just wanted to report that I have pretty annoying lags on Europe West. Before when it was only one server for Europe I had no issues at all. Europe East is about 4 times as far away as Europe West from my location and the ping is about 1/4th. Makes no sense in my opinion and I was wondering if other people are experiencing the same phenomenon.

                        If anyone wants to ask for numbers:

                        Ping for Europe West: 130-170
                        Ping for Europe East: 35-45


                        Kind regards,

                        Alex

                            You are talking about invite? Lol... Invite is not the one that costs the money, the items that come with it do. And since Valve has recently shared so many invites you can find them on sites with max 2-3 euro.

                              As a player from South Africa, I have to play on EU servers for minimal latency... which is at least 230ms.

                              I would really appreciate it if Valve could just grant us servers so that we can actually play properly, and last hitting with 230ms+ is quite tricky.

                                But you can easily get scammed on those sites because they're not official. It doesn't matter that you pay for game content if you buy an "invite", what matters is that you pay 30$ just to realize that you will be unable to play the game in the end due to latency problems.
