they tend to lag, and often don't speak the language.
Adding the "english" option seemingly did nothing, and they seem to play on US servers instead of SEA servers

I'm very sick of everyone who isn't typing or speaking in English.

I keep getting called Chinese due to my username, which is usually quite entertaining. --- Steam ID: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198044407572/ -Crabdom Ambassador.

There is a very large misconception that Chinese are naturally good at this game. They don't seem shy of using the chat or voice options either. Sadly, I am forced to mute every single one because of the incessant yammering and scribbles. --- "Just let me tell you a little lesson buddy.

I know a while back there were actually quite a bit of Russians who used Chinese characters as their names. I remember seeing the names then checking their profiles to see Russian flags and comments on it. I think they were trying to avoid people getting angry at them for being Russians. --- http://tinyurl.com/3qchfkw http://i.imgur.com/5vUHL.gif

from games at like 5 am...
no, after a quick "english or no" "no" (after chinese voice chat) just switch to pings and the game tends to be good from there. --- Blessed is the mind too small for doubt. last.fm/user/BlackHydras

The real blame is on Valve. They have not fixed the SEA server. They set a deadline saying it will be fixed by April 20, extended to April 28, then to May 9 again. And until now, it's still not fixed. The ping is at 200 ms constantly. But when playing in US West or Australia, you get 170-180 ms.
I'm guessing these "Chinese" intruders will stop playing on western servers by the time SEA servers are fixed. --- Birth by Sleep-ing together

Chinese server beta just started recently so this should be less of an annoyance.
