  • Implement region block.

    Really, nobody wants to play with south americans, not even south americans. Please implement region block to help contain the sewage and prevent it from spilling over into North American servers.

    check box:

    do you want to play with a russian: Yes, No?

    can't see why not.

      I'm from Argentina, and I can't play in Brazilian servers because there I have more ping there than in north american servers. And they don't even speak my language. Even if Brazilian servers weren't laggy I would still play in north american servers, because most latin people are seriously bad, and don't even respect other people. So no.

        Aaaaand. Here we go again.

          The entire reason why your continent needs to be contained.

            And I have to play with them when I'm not one of them?

            Edit: I'm in the same situation as you, but why should I get punished and not you?


            • #7
              better than the rest of us having to play with them.

              sorry bro.


              • #8
                Not a valid argument, so no, they shouldn't implement it.


                • #9
                  Sure it is, why do all of us have to suffer, when just you can?

                  You're stuck playing with them regardless, given that they refuse to stay on south america anyways.


                  • #10
                    Oh seriously? A lot of people from south and central america have to suffer just because you want us to suffer? No, it seriously doesn't look as a valid argument.


                    • #11
                      Yes, because not matter what you're stuck with them.

                      If we finally contain the sewage, then you're stuck always playing against them.

                      But if we don't, you're playing against them regardless because they contaminate our servers.

                      You lose either way, but we don't have to.

                        Wouldn't it be a good idea to use the language filter?

                        Add more language to it: Spanish, ??? (any major language) and enforce it. (Maybe give out punishments if you queue for language you don't speak?)

                        I made a suggestion on the language filter:
                        James "2GD" Harding's career as a Dota 2 host on Valve events

                          Time to stop trolling for a sec and give a serious answer.

                          No, region block is stupid in any situation. There's several factors you are ignoring:

                          1: Many South American players actually get better ping on US than SA. For those people, you lock US, you lock them out of playable DotA.
                          2: A lot of people have friends worldwide and want to play with friends.
                          3: A lot of people from SA actually speaks english and get good ping on US. But hey, let's block them because of a few pricks, who cares.
                          4: There's bad players everywhere in the world, but apparently, their nationality only matters when it isn't the same as yours.

                          Only thing Valve needs to do is add Portuguese and Spanish to the language filters ASAP. I'm not sure why they haven't done that already.
