    Hi Valve,

    friend of mine and me we were watching big games today on dotatv for TI west qualifiers right. we found out that we're in seperate chat groups (can't see each others messages and so forth). he's told me he's having fun chat with people talking in english, for all games he's spectating. All I ever see in russian spam which I can't understand at all. Is this due to my region? My mate's from Sweden and I live in Finland. Is there any way for me to get out of this cesspool chat that's for russian viewers and be put to where I belong with the rest of the civilized english speaking viewers? Thanks Valve, and please un-rus my dotatv chat!

  • #2 perhaps?
    VALVE please make a punishment system that punishes the offenders... not the team. Also ever heard about communication? Try it. It might solve a lot of debates/questions here on the forum.

And I don't goddamn belong to the russian cesspool
