  • Create Region Locking Option

    Please create a region locking option that you can select where you can only be matched with people from your region. I think everyone can agree it sucks getting matched with people who don't speak your language and it creates way too much hate against certain countries.

    I tell you what. You know that option to chose language in mm?
    It doesn't work. You ask to ADD something, when they can't even make work what is already there.

        No, it's not. The language selection is there for a reason, if someone in a match can't communicate with their team then that person should be reported for ruining the game.

            any non English speaker can tick 'I speak English' and proceed to ruin games in NA servers
            just add an IP lock option. If I don't want to queue with someone from south america or russian, I select it, and the system won't give me BR/RU players for teammates
            if people that are not from NA want to play on NA servers, then it's fine. I just don't want to be on their team, that's all. they can group up or the system can put them into the same team and play against me. I don't care about that.

                Just decided to take a long break from dota after being matched for the 3rd time in a row with 3-4 russians in my team in every game who got mega retarded picks and fed the enemy team the entire game while spamming their alien language.
                A sincere and heartfelt FUCK YOU VALVE!
                DOTA player and a LoL player walk into a bar. Dota player says "LoL sucks!", the Lol player couldn't deny.

                    ^ I do realize that. And that's the reason I don't want to be on the same team as them. I can't communicate at all. If they want to play then the system can put all 5 non English speakers on the other team. I don't mind playing with them as long as we're not on the same team.

                      instead of region locking how about removing regions all together and matching people based on their pings. you start game at that server which will provide the best possible pings. but of course this will work only in solo que

                        That's funny, I actually came here because this idea struck me as well.

                        More along the lines of a national lobby (I'm from Greece, thought it'd be nice to have a greek lobby on which you can play games). I miss the days of dota 1 when I would log on garena in the greek room - not that I mind playing with foreigners (ofcourse the russian / miscommunication thing has happened to me, but I take it for granted by now), but I do enjoy being able to play with people that speak the same language. Not to mention their proximity, which I'm sure would help with pings.

                        I suppose implementing nationality on mm could be tricky, but the (afaik relatively unused) lobby system could do with rooms and hosting of public games (instead of the cumbersome password system) - kind of like how chat rooms work

                          It's very simple. Limit selected servers to ONE! Problem SOLVED!!!

                            League of Legends uses the various regions to try and stop this, you have to stay in the same region or pay a 20-25 USD fee to transfer, and yet the number of foreign players in ALL servers is incredible. You know those "hue hue hue" jokes? Those seem to have started in LoL's NA region. There is NOTHING that can be done to keep players from going on servers with atrocious ping halfway around the world. Just try to say "hey look how great your ping is here" and hope that the number of willfully ignorant players is minimal.
