    Just make it so players can select only ONE language.

    Yeah, this will increase waiting times for those who can speak few languages. BUT this will make others THINK about who they want to play with.

    Because Russians (for example) in almost every game start with a question that translates into "Any Russians here?". So they WILL HAVE to think who they want to play with.

      What we need is a low priority for non region server matchmaking. It doesn't have to be locked. It's just fair play to ensure that we don't end up with zero communication and teammates who are almost guaranteed to lag more. Especially since ranked play is now a thing. It is very frustrating to only win when everyone on your team speaks english. It cheapens the experience and is endlessly frustrating.

        Just because you are not from the US or GB it doesn't mean you cannot speak good English.

            Why would I be the 1% of South American players? Did you actually read or think about what I said? Obviously not.

            If I meant or wanted to use abomination, I would have. I said exactly what I wanted to.

            Why even reply when everything you said was either incorrect or garbage....

                See my signature. Even Valve developers know that their system doesn't work. My solution to this is to introduce a new "find a match NOW" queue. Do you really think the troublemakers who are queuing on 6 regions and ticking 3 languages give a shit about match quality? Of course not, otherwise we wouldn't see Russians queue in Australia with 400 ping!

                They just want to play the game without waiting. Let them.
                We need a player review system like Overwatch for DotA 2. Get real people to judge communication abuse, intentional skill abuse, and intentional feeding.

                  Stop pretending that this is a problem. Even Valve developer milton admitted that the system doesn't work.
