This program can be useful for the following people:
1- People who don't want to play on the Russian servers, and rather play on the EU West servers where more people speak English and there are far less Russians (Russians get close to 100ms on EU West). 2- Players living in South America who aren't Brazilian, and want to play with people who speak English on the American servers. 3- Australian players who want to play at down time and can't find any games. They can block the Aus servers and play on the Asian ones with 100ms ping. 4- people like me who don't mind 300 ping and like to visit new servers every now and then (South Africa = good people) 5- People in India and UAE and other countries who want to play on other servers rather than play on the hackfest that is the Dubai servers, you can block Dubai using this program (you are locked to the dubai servers if you have lower than 80ms ping to them).
