My point is though, there are assholes with bad pings and worse attitudes everywhere, the idea that this is uniquely Brazilian or Russian or anything is rubbing me very much the wrong way. I know an American guy who has spent more time in the low priority queue than he has the main one, does that call for a post lambasting American Dota players? I just don't get why race specifically is a thing here, I don't think there any more Russian assholes than there are of any other nationality.
It's not a race thing, its a geography thing. It's not that Russians or Brazilians are particularly shitty people. It's that they are as equally shitty as everyone else AND they have horrible ping + can't speak/understand English.
If Dota2 is a community pool that lot's of little kids have peed in it, Russians/Brazilians are the kids that have pissed and shit in it.
