  • Language preference is broken.

    As the title says laguage preference is either a lie or it's broken.

    In south american server i select spanish, brazilians select portuguese, we are all matched together and we end speaking enlgish ( the ones who can).

    Nothing else to say. Fix valve please.


    FIX FDP

    Language preference is useless... doesn't matter what you select, you will always get people talking their language.

        There is absolutley no point in having choices with no enforcements. Region and language are both totally useless since retards will pick whatever anyway and wont get punished for it.

          If someone doesn't picks a preference he will be handled like someone who ticked all the options.
          In other words, the system is useless. Like it matters...

            That's not my point.

            What im saying is that a portuguese speaker only selects portuguese and a spanish speaker just selects spanish. Those players are being matched together.

              Did you ever play Domino? If you have a player that can speak both spanish as well as portuguese he can build a bridge between those languages :O Isn't that a great feature! (?)

                Remove or enforce the language filter.

                Enforce so the language filter actually works. I get to play with english speakers if I pick english.

                If that is not possible remove it. It seems the language filter is not working so why bother having one? It only increases queue time.

                  Do you have any proof of this?

                  But like others said, it's already broken, so I doubt this bug matters.

                    I can't confirm it, but I'm getting a lot of spanish players while searching for portuguese only, and we end up speaking english indeed.
                    No idea if they search for spanish exclusively, since the one I've asked said that maybe his party leader had left portuguese, but it is really annoying.

                      Thank you for reporting that. We and dev team had no clue about that, until today, our savior (you) show off himself and save the day again.

                          How should i do to comfirm it? I know its bugged/broken. Every time i get matched with a portuguese speaker i ask him what language he selected and he tells me chose portuguese.

                            I can't speak for anyone else, but I only queue for portuguese since it was deployed, and it's happening very often now. My last 4 games were "half" spanish and "half" portuguese, with no reason at all.

                            I wonder if the searching range has anything to do with it, I shall test it tonight.

                              Step 1: tick EU west
                              Step 2: tick english only
                              Step 3: Load
                              Step 4: Last pick pudge
                              Step 5: Pudge gives first blood, says "cyka blyat idi nahui"
