    Yeah. I'm really hoping on region locks for public matchmaking. We get a ton of Brazilians here on US servers, and it's basically the same thing - terrible at the game, and the only English they speak is something along the lines of "fuck you mother."

    that's what I did and now I almost always have at least 1-2 people to party with. still just above 50/50 win rate, but now we're laughing and having fun with it

    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

    We are not bad per se, it just happens that dota2 communtiy does not consist of pretty princes and princesses.

    I'm not specifically talking about being bad, I'm terrible myself, but not being able to communicate in team chat is pretty crippling.

    I was not speaking specifically about being bad, well , you cant blame russians/brazilians/whatever for not learning english, I suppose :0
    eventho English is the defacto international language

    The thing is, both Russians and Brazilians/whatever from South America have their own dedicated servers where they can get same or better ping and can actually communicate with each other. Its not all of them of course, some of them I wouldnt even knew were russians, since they communicated in english, which is fine. But in ~450 games in dota2 (and 1000+ in dota) most of the time people like "me solo mid" procceeding to feed 0:4 in 5 minutes or "me jungle" with naix/void/prophet and not coming out for 40 minutes even when teamate needs help one screen away are russians. Of course they know two more english words usually (f u) but other that that, I saw сука so often I had to google it

    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.

    We get plenty of Russians on USE. They're not too common in regular games, but they're fucking everywhere in Diretide. I'll agree that Russians are typically worse... Brazilians are bad and don't speak English but generally they aren't assholes unless you antagonize them. I've had Russians that immediately begin flaming and raging at the slightest provocation (you miss a creep kill, accidentally take one of their creep kills, etc.) I've been told that both Russians and Brazilians we see in Dota are typically little teenagers e-thuggin' it. I've met some pretty cool Russians and Brazilians, so I'm inclined to believe them when they say they get a bad rap due to teenagers being teenagers.

    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.

I even went bot to try to gank him when he was soloing our tier 2 tower and no one came to help. That right there is the real problem with the DotA community. People think they can play however they want and it's always someone else's fault.

    What they should do instead is have a giant banner at the top of the home page that says "There are currently X players in the world better than you" (based on MMR of course) so that every time you log in you get a dose of shut the f*** up humble pie.
    That would be nice, would also be nice if each time you played a particularly hero it gave you tips if it's your first time or tips if it thinks you're doing something wrong.

    "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".

    you see, the thing is, with dota it is the same as with any other game i.e. close to 75% of its community are arrogant/noobs/clueless/retards/whatever, and it just happens that russians are more, err, arrogant than the other, typically
    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

    Hey now, scepter refresher warlock is legit. I wouldn't recommend buying it in place of supporting your team, but I've seen warlock single handedly stop a push 1v5 and kill three people with a 4 RoC bonds air strike.

    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.

    Done it myself, but just because it can be done, doesn't mean it should be :P it's all I ever see when I see someone play Warlock. It's the same with KotL, focusing on their Q, because they take the "hero" thing a bit too seriously. I've seen level 12 keepers without a point in W lol.

    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.
