  • [Suggestion] Region Lock

    There are many of us that are tired playing with russians on Europe East and West. They already have a server of their own, but instead of playing there, they come on Europe.
    It's not enough that they don't want to communicate in English, they also come with a more toxic attitude than usual and with cheats as well. I've lost count on how many cheaters I've found in my games and most of them were russians (above 90%).
    So implement a region lock. Let the players choose with what country they don't want to play with. This will affect matchmaking only for those that don't want to play with certain countries.
    On Europe there are many players that are done with russians for good. Sad truth, but they asked for it.
    Took in the consideration also the VPNs. Don't let them play with VPNs.

    I understand what you mean, but by introducing a region lock the entire player base will suffer (longer queue times).

    You can avoid most of the people you do not want to play with, by being in a full pre-made team. Think about it, you get to avoid the players you do not like but you also have the chance to beat them.

      I guess it could work, but I'm just thinking about the resources. The Devs have a limit of what they can do, but if your idea can be circumventive by playing with a team. I'd think the resources could be spent better, else where, instead of on something the players can "fix" themselves.

      Maybe you should start playing the game with a team, so you can get a better idea of what the game is meant to be like. Looking at the game, through a solo players perspective, is not the way the creators meant the game to be played, or viewed .

        Now spare me your bullshit with how the game is supposed to be played and all the crap. As long as you are not part of the dev team i do not give 2 cents about what you are saying.
        We players want a region lock option PERIOD. Inscribe that in your brain. Now if you continue to be a sperg I can easily block you.
        Ahhh, now I understand.

        You want a region lock, because you are a carebear.

            Let us keep it more civil, shall we?

            The game will become less toxic, not from a region lock, but by you behaving properly.

            Look at yourself, before you accuse others.

You come on every post (ranked roles, region lock, reporting system) that attempts the smallest good change for the game and propose otherwise or even deny the subject in cause. Let's make an idiot like you behave properly by keeping your mouth shut. I really wish I could plant my fists in your face since I'm completely tired of idiots like you that want to preserve the bullshit in the game. I bet that you are one of those that like the situation since you ruin games yourself.

              WE WANT A REGION LOCK TO STOP RUSSIANS IN EUROPE FROM QUEUEING IN OUR GAMES VALVE.
              Not everyone thinks it is a good idea, I gave you the reasons I think they are not a good idea, there is no need to attack people who have a different opinion.

              Especially in a forum, you know, a place for multiple positions and ideas?

                Do you know who actually cares about having low queue times over quality games? People who don't care about the game to begin with...

                Why should serious dota players suffer for casual morons? So Valve can sell more shitty skins, and battle passes?

                Tell me exactly why you think that: shorter queues > game quality.

                I bet your answer will be fascinatingly informative.

                  Any serious Dota player is playing in a full team. The only people who will suffer are the casuals playing with less than 5. The "morons", as you put.

                  You should suffer, so serious players can get some real balance. If you don't like it, suffering, play the game properly by having a full team.

                    To be honest i'm okay with Mother Russia, Russia West and Russia East server. Core issue is language barrier or toxicity. I have habit to check people profiles I think dota needs middle eastern server because they don't speak english too much and they swear a lot.

                      All immortal players are solo queuing you clueless mongoloid.

                      Get back under your rock you retarded nerd. GO feast on some cheetos and drown in mountain dew. Brain dead cancer.

                      The game isn't moving forward because of cancers like you. Most, if not all the devs are probably directly descendants of your unfortunate family tree... thumbless mongoloids.

                        Region lock is there since 2018, it is only matching you with people that are close-by and the "Russians" you get matched with are either using a vpn, or it's other eastern Europeans that live nearby.

                          Or you're at an mmr range where there can be no locals found.

                            The best you can do is to launch your game with a VPN:
                            1. Connect to VPN somewhere in US or Canada;

                            2. Launch the game;

                            2.5. re-enter your steam password if prompted (sometimes if you time VPN connection with the game launch this doesn't happen)

                            3. Go to the plus sign menu in chat channels and check for which regional chat you're the closest, if it's the one you set in VPN you've successfully spoofed your location.

                            4. Disable the VPN

                            5. If your game displays an OFFLINE indicator at the top of your screen go to matchmaking server settings and refresh your pings;

                            These steps should trick the matchmaker that you are queueing europe from us and you will be matched with english speakers.

                            Using this method you will be matched with english speakers even if you queue for Sto (Russia)

                              If you solo queued, for your immortal rank, then you are not truly an immortal.

                              No one cares about solo mmr, Dota revolves around team vs team. There was a time I could have agreed with you, solo queue meaning something. Dota has moved away from being a "solo hero" game, it's now balanced around tournament style play, where you are with a full team.

                              The game is going down, because people like you want to play without a team.

                              Cheers, you savage.
