[Help me] Can't find anybody on "same region" search
First of all, thanks for your attention and sorry for my bad english.
Since the transition to Steamworks, i can't find any "same region" match on ranked and endless, but all my other friends here in Brazil find peopple normaly. When i put the option to find on "any region", usualy i find around 2~4 guys from different places.
I can only play with peopple from my region by joining on a lobby of a friend, but i really enjoy to play ranked matches or play with someone new that i don't know (with a decent connection).
I've already looked at my steam location, download region and tested a lot, but did not helped. I live on Brazil/Pará/Belém(country/state/city) and i never had such problems on GFWL. I really want to play ranked games when Ultra comes out, so please, help me.

Edit: Problem partialy solved. I've changed again my download region to "Brazil" and waited for about 2 hours and now i can find matches. But everyone that does not use the same download region will not find each other... i don't like to use Brazil as my download region because it's usually unstable.
Please, fix this.

I think it depends what time you're playing, sometimes I play during the nights and I only find people from other regions, but during the day, there are a lot of players from my region, I live in United States, just keep trying...

I've tested with friends at the same time and everyone who i've tested normaly finds up to 1~3 peopples for play. I've tested create a room and waited up to 5 minutes and nobody joins and no one for my friends can see the room.

I always find the most matches by playing arcade mode with fight request turned on

I have been posting this for weeks now. "SAME" is bugged. Search "ANY" and you will find USA and everyone else. "SAME" only searches on your steam download server.

As i said on the beggining, i've tested a lot of things, changed the location on profile and the download location but did not worked. Searching ofr "any" lands to anyone far from me with a bad connection with me.

When I moved to Japan, my flag/region in SF4 was Japan. Local games ran great! Then, out of no where, SF4 shows me with an American flag. Now when I search same region I get nothing. I've spent hours trying to figure this out. Set download region to Japan, set region in windows to Japan. Nothing works. My ISP is Japanise and uses dynamic IPs. I'm starting to think SF4 pulls its region data based on your IP, not download region, and its getting it wrong in my case. If Ultra dosen't have some kind of in game region select I won't be getting it.

I think its some thing related to it with me, in my case it shows the Brazil flag aways, but i can't find anyone on same region at any time... I hope someone fix this.

pre-steamworks i was usa flag and every thing was great. found players instantly.

post-steamworks and i am now stuck with canada flag. finding players is very time consuming. not to mention added lag, missing gfwl features like easy communication with other players, etc, freezes during offline play in training mode...wtf, dreadfully slow steam cloud sync...the list goes on.

Pretty annoying that i cant send people a simple Good Game (or You Suck) message without adding them.

I hope Ultra have this solved...

After todays patch(7.1mb) i've tested again on "same region" and "any region", all remains the same. Sometimes i find a guy with brazilian flag searching on "any" but its red bar/i can't join, indicating that he is not really on Brazil.

I really need your help to play.
