Alternatively, if you understand they take time to travel, why are you complaining about it?
Bleating on? Supposed handicap? Are you trolling? Seem to be... or do you not even have the most basic understanding of science? Didn't you know that signals take time to travel? Lol!
Ultimately it's a video game, don't like it, go and play something else in the knowledge that there are 1000s happy to play with Americans despite the disadvantage.
I say supposed handicap because some of the best FFA players are Brits who seems to be doing well for themselves even though you see the disadvantages they have when you watch their streams.
If those who are good enough to make a full time living off of it don't want region lock, surely that's enough to tell you the advantage isn't insurmountable.
I've said it many times, I shouldn't have to be an EU pro to beat average Americans. An average EU player should have a fair and fighting chance at beating a similar ranked American. But there's an offset because of the latency.
Yeah jimbo does amazing and plays around the latency, he also puts in the 50-60+ hours a week to get that good. 99% of us can't, but that's why there's a ranking system, so we play people of similar ability but our abilities are curtailed by the connection, it's no longer like for like.
They're good enough to make a full time living off it because of exactly that reason, it's their 9-5 job, literally. They don't want region lock because as someone else mentioned, it's their living. No games = no money.
I'll be first to admit, there's a lot of exaggeration on here, skill often runs out before latency makes a difference. I play myself despite the connection discrepancies and do "ok" but it's frustrating to the point of anger and others sometimes exaggerated claims on here are just the result of those frustrations. Unnecessary frustrations because this could be solved with a choice given to the players of fast vs good connection.
tl;dr - "Get good" is not the solution.
