at least Russians curse in their own language. You don't get it...

Yeah, they curse at you and laugh with other russians while you're being ignored
As for the Russian issue... It's far worse than Brazilians. Almost every single game when I queue Europe (and not the Russia bit) I'll end up with 9/10 Russians. They're not all unpleasant though. A few have tried to speak English to have some sort of communication in team chat, but the broken English is really tough to decipher.
Now a days I only queue US
What's with these 3 Dota 2 invites I just got in my steam inventory? They randomly appeared.
I dont agree with region lock, but I do agree with each server having its main language(s) for the communication in PUBs. like US english, EU english/german/french, Russia russian, east Asia chineese South America Spanish/Portugeese etc.
The russians are so overwhelming that i changed my dota name to the first verse of the Soviet Anthem and taunt them with amusing anecdotes about communism and gulags .... and putin....and the KGB ...and Stalin....and random russian city names.
"Hey you're a warlock, are you sure you want Aghanims at 13 minutes?", "yer ofc i do im a nuker lul".
"Might I suggest some wards instead? They have a riki and nyx, sentry ward would be ide--" "no no refreshers next lul herp derp i'm a carry".
I,for one, like playing with EU bcuz I can and want to, because I still hold my Engrishe skillz in high regards, and because I too bloody dispise arrogant thrashtalkers and noobs.
tl;dr - dont judge a guy by his whereabouts , judge him by his deeds
Russians aren't really any worse than anyone else and when things go bad they're funnier than other people. If you actually get offended or annoyed by anyone, just apply the mute button. A lot easier than screaming REPORT REPORT and then coming up with superficial solutions on forums. I wrote my in-game name in in cyrillic and the amount of prejudice I get from some people for being Негмаииi is hilarious. No offense to anyone but I like EU servers a lot more than USE as I prefer the occasional non-communicative Russian to the players with huge egos and low skills that seem more common in USE.
I understand some people can't grasp the meta game that is items very well, but most of the time there is someone on your team who will teach, and it is so important for people to know. For example yesterday I was having a game that was real tight, real close, anyway, I was Doom Bringer, and it was my first time. As always with your first time you're a bit anxious, you don't know where to put it and are concerned those playing with you might get a bit annoyed or frustrated but I found out where things should go and made everyone really happy.
They had a really good Pudge and Ursa, and it was getting really dangerous, late game, they were winning so I bought a Blademail at the right time, it's a bit unorthodox, but I would say it won us the game. Same thing can be said of Warlock and refresher, and indeed other items. We can't rule them out completely, but I see people trying to do it all to often as if it works everytime - rather than focusing on their core items, and providing what is necessary for the team.
Like, I see people complaining about getting stunned all the time, yet they are building radiance, or MKB with no evasion on the enemy team, or rushing Butterfly. When alternatively they could get Lothar's or Linken's or BKB. It's senseless. I see Ursa's skipping Vlads like they are pro - but not benefitting the team at all and spending 6 years in the jungle farming their blink.
More importantly - when you try to teach them, like "perhaps you should go this", and other members on your team reach a sort of consensus for what they should buy? Nobody listens. When it was my first time as Doom and they said "get this, this, do this all the time", I didn't even think to say "shut up noob, fuck off, noob, сука".
I actually think twice before loading Dota now, because if I am not with friends, I am risking a painful experience.
If they won't listen when we teach and help, perhaps the game doing it is a good idea :P
Rushing butterfly makes me very sad...it's not even a very good item.
I just got an email from Valve with an invite to the beta! So excited
