    The irony here is fucking incredible.

    You are, by default, the exception to the currently established rules of the matchmaking system. Being in the minority when it comes to your proposed system automatically makes you the exception.

    Essentially, you're telling everyone "tough titties" if this doesn't suit their needs, but god forbid your needs aren't met.

    Pot, meet kettle.

      *shrug*
      There's nothing bigoted about it, and if you honestly think so you're extremely narrow-minded.

        Right. I'm narrow-minded. Not the guy who wants everyone else to bend over backwards because he's uncomfortable. Me.

        You bet, buddy. You bet.

          Uhh, I'm not in the minority kid. The vast majority of dota players are from the US.

            First of all, bending over backwards would require a very limber body, are you a gymnast or something?

            Secondly, I never said anything about being uncomfortable, I have excellent posture and a chair that feels like silk.

            And yes, I stick by my original statement.

              Sorry, but I don't get paid to spend time to come up with ideas. I'm not a valve employee, sue me if my idea isn't 100% flawless right off the bat. If I was paid to, I could easily find a solution, but I don't waste my time on pet projects that don't pay.
              Then why bother posting this? Admit it, you either wanted to vent (is only game; y u heff to be mad?) or are trying to weasel out the fact that your suggestions are shit.

              And this is how businesses are run. Arbitrarily favor part of your consumers over the rest. Thank god no one is paying you to come up with any "solutions."

              If the NFL just let anyone play, the better players would crush the plebs, just like in any game. Competition is about rooting out the bad players so the good players remain. Maybe you should think through your response next time so it doesn't take two seconds for your idea to come crashing down on you.
              Sorry, but gotta ask this: Are you a moron?

              The skill of your teammates/foes isn't what's in question here, the matchmaker already does the job of coming up with good matchups (note that you're pretty much admitting that you're being constantly matched with people who probably play the game with 5x your ping; speaks volumes about your skill). The fact is, region locking stagnates a game's competitive scene. How else do you expect teams to improve when they're not exposed to deal with different strats from different regions?

              Seriously. If you've no idea of how to manage a worldwide game client and, apparently, don't have the will to put your brain to work for more than a minute, then do us all a favor and stop posting.

              Just what the shit, mate? You know there's a playerbase heatmap on the client? How about you take a look at it?

                For starters, you missed my point entirely. You're in the minority here. You've pitched your idea, and so far it's not been received very well. What do you do? Throw a tantrum. "I want it this way and if it inconveniences you then I don't care".

                Second of all, care to cite a source on that playerbase estimate of yours? Because at least historically speaking, russia/china had a much higher density of dota players than anywhere else. Not to mention a foothold in the competitive scene.

                Not that it matters since it has absolutely nothing to do with what we're talking about, but since you brought it up and it's, you know, bullshit, I figured I'd ask.

                Okay so seeing as there's absolutely no argument here whatsoever, just you giving retorts to idioms for god knows what reason, I'll go ahead and ignore it.

                  I love how one-sided your response is. "Either you're this or this, admit it!"

                  How about, I'm neither. I posted because I'm a customer, and the game is made for customers, and after a solid year of playing, I finally got around to sharing my insight, there's nothing arbitrary about it, there's someone who's right, and someone who's wrong. I'm right in my OP, and you disagreeing makes you wrong. Communication is key in winning dota, and current language issues are a massive problem. Disagreeing with this just makes you a fool.

                  Also, region locking doesn't stagnate a game's competitive scene, AT ALL. SC2 is one of the most competitive games on the market, and is region locked. Using circular reasoning because you're unable to admit when you're wrong... like I said previously, you're incorrigible, and I don't waste my time with people who can't admit they're wrong.

                  Oh, and 30 seconds of my brainpower is clearly more than an hour's worth of yours based on your inability to understand basic logic. Don't post in my thread again unless you have something actually sensible to say.

                    Lol, I threw a tantrum. Do you have space binoculars that allowed you to see where I live and watch me thrashing around on the floor over dota flaws? Are you a spy?

                    Get over yourself bro.

                    I'm not in the minority here either. You want to use the sample space of one thread and five replies... if you had any sense at all you would know that the majority of people who read a thread don't bother posting in it UNLESS they disagree with the OP. You're a prime example, which actually puts you in the minority here.

                    Yea, and China is gridlocked by their own government in connecting with the universe, rendering their population irrelevant. And lol @ russia having a higher density of players than the US. And no, I'm not going to spend time finding and linking a source for you. If you want to know, go find it yourself.

                    I gave sarcastic responses as your idiocy provides me with few other ways to respond. Bring my something intelligent or get out of my thread.

We ended up with a 61-10 team kill ratio. Some might wish all their games were so "awesome", but for a player who wants to actually improve (namely myself) playing against foreign teams that are this bad is virtually a waste of time.
                      Watch out fellas, we got a badass over here.

                      So now the problem isn't communication, just brazilians not posing a challenge.

                      Excuse me while I snicker at your ignorant, overly inflated ego.

                        Region locking has been denied 100000000000 times . The reason a mod told was "pro teams wouldn't be able to play with other pro teams in other regions".

                        I honestly think this reason is pure shit. Filters can be created , valve is just too lazy to create them.

                          Please, take your snickering, and as I said in my last 3 replies, kindly get out of my thread so intelligent discussion may resume.

                            You'd think with the insane amount of money they make from aesthetic items, they could... ya know, do something instead of spend all their manpower to just create more items to get more money.
