  • [suggestion-fix] DotaTV server selection

    When viewing any dotatv tournament match it almost always puts me and a majority of south africans on the South American servers,
    due to limited space on the South African servers (EU used to be the default before dota left beta).
    This is both annoying and frustrating due to the fact that firstly the distance provides huge lag (although Dota net code deals very well with this)
    aswell as having to deal with people speaking predominantly either portuguese or spanish in the game chat.
    The EU servers are closer and have half the lag that South American servers have also there are a
    higher amount of english speaking people in the in-game chat. It would be nice if I could choose which servers dotatv uses for tournament matches
    or maybe just use the match making settings .
