Exactly. In the previous version, when you searching for a new alliance without any keyword, you get results at random from all over the world, based on points an empty spot.
Now all the results are from your own country, no matter what.
Right now i’m indeed using the recruitment room of other spoken languages to get a spot on internetional teams, but it’s very frustrating cause the selection is poor, many times is already full or the “features” of the guild doesn’t suite me.
Long story short, i find this very useless, because if i wanna join a team of the same country, i only need to go 2 minutes in global chat.
