    Automatic server selection should be based on location.

    First of all, I play in SEA servers.

    For some reason, when I go into lobby explorer, all the custom games created in this region have only 1-2 connection bars (ping meter?) causing the server to automatically choose US region hosts when clicking on PLAY instead of local SEA/SG hosts thus causing very high latency for custom games.

    I don't know what algorithm Valve uses to select 1-2 bars for games in the SEA region, but it is not correct. The game connection bar should be based on YOUR ping to HOST ping. NOT server ping to host ping. Or if determined by host-server ping, all the games created under SEA hosts should have corrected pings from SG server, not US servers.

    Although I can manually go into lobby explorer and choose games created under "SINGAPORE REGION", not everyone knows of this feature and also causes really long wait times since you have to wait for other people instead of everything being automated like when clicking "PLAY".

    Thanks.
