Disable out-of-region matching

We can decline to match with crossplay players, can we also decline to match with players playing outside their optimal region?

No reason to not have an option saying I don't want to play with people whose ping is over a certain number.

People would abuse the hell out of that, for Competitive.
I don't see any reason not to have it in Casual though.

How would you abuse it? You'd end up playing against players who don't lag, because "optimal region" means "region that you have the best ping to according to the client". Of course, I'm also of the opinion that "optimal region" could calculate out to "none" if they all ping high enough.

If people were unrealistic about the ping, they would end up in very long queues as well.
