Matchmaking punishes you if you have a good connection

I’m am constantly matched against people from 3rd world countries or completely across the country. Do I really have to gimp my own connection to get a fair fight? Maybe you should stop forcing people to play with high ping players just because you have a great connection with very little latency and provide a region filter at the very least. I do not want to play against someone from Brazil, Russia, Japan, etc…unless there is absolutely no one playing online in the US, which will rarely ever be the case.
