    thanks for making me able to communicate with other players in dotaTV, valve


    i'm not russian btw, i'm finnish. can you please put me into a chat group where english is spoken. my swedish friends get a chat where people speak english. i'm also white so i feel i'm entitled to the same instead of being put in there with these.. people

      thanks for advice i tried it.. still all i see is russian. i think its a fundamental problem related to my ip which is close to russia i guess. this isnt the first i made a topic like this either btw all i ever got was russian chats. last time was ti qualifier games since i havent bought any tourney tickets.. i see enough russian spam in matchmaking games in eu west dont need tickets to see more. hoping for a fix of some sort here, valve. pce

        i dont think it is related with ip...since i got all russians too...

        maybe it is intended

          Yeah, Dota TV chats are divided by 250 people selected by your IP, no language filter whatsoever and you can't change the channel either, I normally got into Brazil chat most of the times so I have to turn it off sadly.

            I always get put into channels with English-speaking people, but I turn it off anyway because there's really no point in talking with them when they all spam the same racist remarks.

            If anything, just stick to your lobby or guild chat channels, imo.
