  • Where are all the English speaking players in this game?

    About 80% of the games I que up I either get Brazilians or Russians, who don't speak a world of English.

    Why is that when I select North America with an English preference I get these player?

        these players have a couple of ways to get to your match
        1
        they checked for every language looking for faster queue times
        2
        matchmaking could not find any english speakers so they mixed the bag a little to make it faster
        the reason there arent always english speakers in matmaking is because they're already in matches
        Spoiler: 
        I guard the rear.

          The matchmaking is trying to share them equally between all the foreigners
          Read this if you want to know why so many games is very one sided: http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?...l=1#post436467

              They are all playing Co-op. Seriously.
              In normal MM I get matched with English-speaking guys 70% of the time, while in Co-op it feels like 85%.

                Valve doesn't care. English speaking people are the minority on all servers except maybe Australia + US west.
