    If I see foreign characters during the load screen I dodge. If I hear/see foreign languages during the pick phase I dodge. If I see someone with a [muted] tag during the load screen, I dodge.

    Valves shitty MM won't beat me.

      Dude, there were occasions when I've seen BRs. I play on EU servers only...

        As a brazilian, I know people that queue in NA East servers just so they can rid themselves from bad players, but they forget that there are bad players everywhere. The fact that your ping won't be lesser than 200 is also a problem, as it's the difference between using Spiked Carapace before being hooked or dying, for example.

          i dont mind playing with brs( im from argentina) the problem is the language and yes, i rather have 200 ping and speak english than playing on br server with ppl who speak portuguese, refuse to speak english and report you for not speaking portuguese. there should be a filter for spanish or a server for spanish speaking players so i dont have to read portuguese.

            That is true but the problem is not always YOU! The person with 1 wins did not restart his queue so his timer is at about 25 minutes now and guess what? He gets you in the game even if you restarted because he was searching for so long his search range is huge.

            To be honest valve should make the change for 1 week so people see how long the queue will be if we to get closer matchmaking.

            I am not ready for 40 min queue every time.

              Game 2: Queue with Brazillians.


              Volvo, there's a reason why people get muted: they are raging at the idiots your matchmaking is putting them with.

              Note: I am not muted, though I am pissed off about my third game in a row with a party of brazillians. I ask the support to buy courier and I get "Go fuck yourself, buy your own courier". When I am playing Lone Druid I don't want to buy the fucking courier.

              /rant
              i intentionally queue with brazillian players sometimes. scary isnt it? if i get spanish or portuguese speaker and they are terrible i put them on my shoulders and carry them as much as i can in the ways i can given my 1-5 role. more often than not at least. this has been part of dota for a very long time. its just what happens when you dont region lock.

              always thought that getting BR on US west or east or even sometimes S. Asia was strange since South America servers came up. It still happens just as often though, maybe because there are just more players now? They always complain about lag. They would anyone intentionally queue for servers that cause 300 to 500ms lag? Isn't the main Latin America server in BR?

              Its not hard to carry people like this or help them to win, but why do they queue for servers that offer a significantly worse experience?

                Unfortunately the matchmaking system can't scan the personality of the person who's searching. I am Russian. Born in Russia, raised in Russia and thankfully working and studying in UK now. I've played Dota 2 for some time now... basically since it came out... and I noticed: the larger the community the worse it gets. Every country has it's game preferences among the people. Dota 2 is one of the main games played by the average gamer in countries like Russia and Brazil. So no wonder that you will get so many people of the same nation in one place. Now I can't talk about Brazilians (since I'm not one) but the russian mentality and behavior are not friendly. Or I would say they are not polite. It's the same in real life tbh. I have to admit that the average russian is not a person that thinks with his brain but with his spirit. Driven by feelings and emotions rather than solid thinking. This of course results in not being able to shut your mouth where you must and etc. problems. It's sad because the way it is it makes us look like a barbaric nation with no logical thinking process. I'm not defending anyone and I know how annoying is to deal with all this pointless pride and arrogance but that's who they are. Now the total invasion of every server is just because they're given the option to play on those servers so why not. MM has problems that can't be fixed with changing the game client script and etc. Those problems are connected with humanity itself and not the game MM. People are the same everywhere... in real life and in game... they are just humans.
