Selectable matchmaking regions No, this is not a thread about region locking. This is a thread about limiting the number of selectable matchmaking regions, which was done in the last patch.
Before the last patch July 26players could queue on all regions. Currently, there are ten: South Africa Why not limit it to 2? Edit At the suggestion of magicmerl, I'm including a post a made that summarizes the discussion up to the second page: Of course I only know the thoughts of people who post here, but it seems clear at the bare minimum that there is unanimous agreement that "reducing the number of selectable matchmaking regions to 6" does not solve the problem of playing with teammates who do not speak your language.
The question is to what should we further reduce the number. On the other extreme, selecting a maximum of 1 region, while not a literal region lock as the player can dating agency cyrano subtitle indonesia any one region, runs into the problem of those few players who complain that pure region locks prevent them from playing with friends on other continents.
So the choice is 2, 3, 4, or 5. I initially proposed 2, and I gave my reasons here. A good point was made that the ten matchmaking regions can roughly be combined into three continents with three regions each - Americas, Europe, and Asia - with the lone South African server making do for that continent as a whole. It seems that three could be the least offensive compromise. Well, Valve, you decreased it from 10 to 6.
Try 6 to 3, and let's see how reduced complaints about queuing with Spanish-speaking South Americans, Brazilians, and Russians are.

I picked 2 because I want to 1. With a maximum of 2 selectable regions, you can queue based on where you live and based on where your friend lives. I think 3 would be a good compromise. Selecting more regions to reduce queue times has diminishing returns, and you just end up hurting yourself by playing with high early dating scan nz. Maybe allow for more if you're in a mixed-region party.

I agree that three regions is just fine. There is absolutely no need to queue for more than that under any conditions. It will give you high ping and match you with people you can't understand at all.
Just selecting his own region and up to two nearby, if he wants to reduce queue time, is the best a player can do. In the worst case, of an international, mutli-region party, members of the party can just talk with each other to determine the regions they will queue for before doing so, not a big deal.

That way those of us who only want to play with people from the same region will have a much much higher chance of that happening.
