At the risk of being racist, it's getting to where I can safely predict the outcome of the game by counting the Latin names/clan tags/BR players.  If your team has more of these than the reds, your chances of winning are diminished.  English aside, they dont seem to follow <<< or >>>>> and then want to Jajajajajajaja all game or ask Alguien Brasiliero 2 minutes into the game.  Almost without fail, post battle stats show a 45 % player.  Is it poor internet connection?  The fact they aren't as result driven as American players?  

Change my mind.

Not sure where you draw your conclusion as fact that Latin players are less result driven than American players. Really? Seems to me that hammerheads are equally distributed over all servers.

Agreed.  But, enjoy the easy wins when you can.  As for the losses, carry harder.  Try to reach out to the players and offer help.  No need to berate them.  But, assuming their internet is trash just because they're in 3rd world countries?  That's a tad ignorant...

This observation alone covers the majority of the player base. So yes, you're being a bit racist.

One could argue that Canadian players as a whole are better than Americans. I have nothing to back this claim up, but then again, neither do you.

Why would you ask that? What makes Latin-American players different than Chinese, Russian, German, or American players?

I think this is a fair question. I assume that in South America there are good and bad internet connections, just like in the US. But they do have one disadvantage that US and Canada players do not have, distance from the server. That make a difference performance, as I remember the servers for NA are in Chicago and somewhere on east coast. In that regards we have a built in advantage, try playing on the EU server to see what I mean! Bushka used to talk about good and bad days connecting to the Asian server due to sea cable issues, so not limited to here.

I've experienced this.  As it gets later in the evening I'll see the games fill with Latin players, and most of them aren't any good.  But at the same time, before all the latin players get on, there are a lot of other players that are no good.  Maybe we need to quit looking for the bad players because most players suck, and start looking at who the good players on the team are.  I've seen a few really decent latin players, I suspect at the end of the day the average skill level is the same as everybody else, it just looks different because often late evening games will be majority latin players, and if you're having a bad night, and you want to blame teams [which can be a legit reason], and your teams are majority latin, I get that it looks like the latin guys just aren't good.  I would say that it's a problem with perception, not reality.  Again, let's look for the good players on bad teams and I think a lot of us might change our mind about the latin playerbase.

I could care less about how Latin American players perform in battle

 

What ticks me is that whenever someone is being a jerk and saying stuff like "nooooob" or "ez" or "pu to" it is almost always a latin american player.

Posts like this make me wish there was a downvote arrow in the forums. OP, you’re a moron. Not because you’re an English speaker, but because what you say is based upon bias and ignorance.

 

I mean, determining win probability based on last names is about as ignorant as it gets. I had a guy start flaming me 15 seconds I to a game because he wanted to stupidly all go one direction that played right into the reds’ lineup advantage (I firmly believe a more mobile team is better suited to open ground and a slower, more armored team is better suited for places with buildings, walls, and rock formations). This guy judges me based on my last name, and accuses me of being a 40%er because I don’t jump as he barks orders after he assumed a commander’s role when he died first. I had a better WR than he did, but that didn’t matter because my last name is Spanish. 
 

He started spamming me post battle, so I hit up his clan leadership (this was December, before the update that defaulted garage chat to friends only). Half of them also assumed that I was in the wrong SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE I HAVE A SPANISH LAST NAME. One guy basically said that a Mexican has no business playing this game. Funny, because I am a true blue American, and served 20 years in the military. My grandfather Juan was a WWII veteran who was decorated for bravery in the Aleutian Island campaign, and I have two uncles who served in Vietnam.  But I'm just a dumb Mexican because of my name.

Just for the record, poutine should should not be considered food unless you really don’t like the person, won’t dispute the first part though.

Go spend a few nights on Rue St Paul or visit a few establishments just west of Old Montreal and tell me if you hate Quebecoise.
