I think its high time the server selection comes out of hiding, give us access to it from inside the game and without having to wait a long time at the main menu before even entering the game. Especially while there are many location mismatches happening now, it is extremely inconvenient and frustrating to have to completely close the game, reopen the game and wait without accidentally clicking anywhere for the data centre selection to finally appear.
The server selection was being abused from high ping players getting weird lag compensation advantages.
But you wanting to select a server is a reasonable need...
So how about being able to join any server, but with a ping limit?
A lot of issues could be eliminated with one, how about a ping limit of 110?

I think limiting you to the 10 lowest ping servers would suffice to fix that problem. Or yea, having a ping cap could work too. There are many ways to solve that problem, honestly.
Edit: I am going to add that you can still select servers manually, its just a bit of a stuff around to do it.
