  • Lower priority for non-region servers / single language preferences - Humble request

    Region locking is not the answer; it would prevent friends from playing with each-other and hurt feelings.

    I think that if a player queues for another region though, that it should queue as low priority (or some special queue, maybe just less favorable) unless they are partied with a player of that region.

    There was another suggestion that sounded good about only allowing one language pick instead of multiples. This way it prevents people just selecting 3 or so languages hoping to get faster matchmaking times. I believe this was something that Halo 3 introduced and it tended to work well.

    Which do you think is more important or will be more effective?

    I believe the multi language games tend to turn into racist bashing and would like to avoid that behavior rather than enabling it with the current system.
    Limit Language selection to One (1)
    Reduced priority for out of region (excepting party)
    Neither are good options ; allow me to elaborate in the comments...

    The poll is expired.

    i ve been suggesting the first one for the past couple of months. I dont care if you can speak 10 different languages, select the one you are more familiar with and go q. Good thing, there are 6 possible language preferences right now.
