    The update ruined my chat experience

    With the update you are now automatically put into a Neighborhood channel on startup. I'm swedish and got into a dutch channel. It seems that the majority in the stockholm (swed capital) room are non-swedish.
    They split our already small "community" into 17 different cities. Before the update we were all gathered in "sweden" and i believe we were around 80-100 people at most. The stockholm room alone now has that same amount.

    I understand this would work well for people in highly populated countries with a high amount of dota players - and if it'd actually pair you with your actual country - but in smaller countries where the playerbase isn't the biggest it's a ruining feel. It was really awesome before the update.

    Don't split the playerbase like this.

    I am from Macedonia, and I am put in a chat in Thessaloniki, Greece.
    It's not far from my location maybe 60KM, but still I'd rather be in Macedonian room.

    Are you people so dense?
    You want Valve to go NSA-grade on your arse, so it can pinpoint your location with inch accuracy?
    The way it is now, it's the way ip geolocation works! Google "ip location" and test it yourselves.
    If your ISP does not provide correct data, it will use it's main adress, or whatever junk is found in public databases.
    So please do disable the option from the GUI, and manually pop the add chat channel to do the right selection.
    Thank you.

    How does it work you said?
    It actually puts you in the channel nearest to you, in my case Thessaloniki, Greece 59 KM.
    There are 3 Macedonian channels, but all of them are farther than Thessaloniki.
