              yeah but i think most people do it because of language. i mean i search in spanish and english, and then when i find a match, all speak portuguese :/

                Apparently, all the South America servers are on Brazil or really close to it. My ping is great (ranging from 30-50) comparing to other servers like US (200 or more).
                The problem is, because how the routing works in some of the other SA countries, some of the non-Brazilian SA players get a HIGHER ping on SA than on US.

                I, personally, just play in the US servers when the SA ones are down and I REALLY want to play, otherwise I'll just wait for them to get back up again.

                Also, spanish isn't that close to portuguese. I think most will agree with me, but we have more proficiency with english than portuguese/spanish languages, which is annoying, especially since the Language option seems to not have ANY effect, almost every other game is a mix between spanish and portuguese speakers.

                  Language preferences are a lie.

                    While I do understand portuguese, as a south american player, I'd not be able to speak it with them, I'd just communicate in spanish and they'd probably not understand it as much as I understand portuguese, it has to do with me having a sort of proficiency for languages as well, so yeah, spanish and portuguese aren't that alike

                    It's easier for people to understand english than to understand spanish/portuguese even while being from SA

                    By the way, I've even heard about people in Brazil having issues with the brazilian servers, that's how badly Valve needs new servers on SA, it also has to do with how the language preferences don't work for shit, because if they did, people would never find somebody that doesn't speak their language, russians can still queue US and keep being matched with other people that speak russian because who the fuck cares? Same goes for SA players, except even in the SA servers, there's language issues because people end up having to talk in english so they can communicate with the portuguese guys and viceversa

                    It's both the huge ping on the SA servers for anybody from SA and the shitty language preferences

                          Not trying to start a shitstorm but its funny how people think peruvians are as bad as BRs, our teams have been on top in each tourney around SA and even defeated (i wont name but you can search) some loved teams in NA, pretty funny. Artyk (a pervuian team) have changed so many times their name that you cant keep track of them but they have been in tourneys and even so close to get a chance for the TI3,

                          People in Peru play dota not for fun but to bet and win money (obviously) raising the competitivity, its not a casual game in Peru, I will be honest here, most of the times people blame a peruvian is because they are doing it wrong, I will try to find and post replays in case anyone is wondering whats going on. lol

                            It's not a matter of Peruvians sucking or not. It's a matter of them not understanding the language of the region they queued in.
