Is There A Workaround To Connecting To Other Geographical Regions

It's become a bit of an epidemic here in Asia; most players from China, Taiwan or the Philippines are simply not in possession of a brain evident by how they play or rather epically muck up your heists and missions. On the odd occasion I am connected to a lobby with mostly americans or europeans and those are great but sadly not very often.

 

Is there any way - by virtue of proxy or host file editing etc etc - to trick Rockstar's into connecting me with people not from Southeast Asia?

Get people on your friends list that suit your needs and join their sessions. You don't have to play with them - just use them to get what you want.

but it's not really different with brainless players in other countries/parts of the world.

in european and american servers you usually get the same kind of dumbass players.

if you had luck with european/american sessions once or even a couple of times doesn't mean that it is always like that.

unfortunately it's a common thing around the world that immature, dumb, and uneducated kiddies rather play this game instead of learning serious stuff in/for school.

i met some serious and very competent players from asia as well as from other parts of the world.

I've never thought of this. Have a couple friends in the UK and US will try it later, thank you.

 

It seems to me to be a PC or "free multiplayer" thing. Not sure about PSN but back when I used to play on Xbox Live with the 360 I recall most players to be somewhat competent and mostly very fun to play with. Maybe because the subscription sort of filters out most of the 10-year-olds? None of this hair-pulling frustration when a level 85 chinaman dies on hard difficulty moments before you deliver Avi to the drop off point. Or drives around bumping into the Post Op vans.

Yeah, you're bordering a little too close to racism for my liking so I'll just back out now. I hope I'm wrong, and I hope the advice helps.

Plugging your PS3 directly into your modem will give you an open nat, type 1 connection and supposedly allow you to connect to more players. Not sure if that will help.
