Introduction This Guide will explain how you can select a specific Server Region for MatchMaking, Wingman, Dangerzone and basically every official Valve Server.
I found these Commands through my large experience with Counter Strike Mapping, Modding and General Knowledge.
Can i get Banned for this?
This is NOT bannable and will not result in a VAC Ban
It is done by only using commands which DON'T require sv_cheats 1 and are therefore available for everyone to use however they like.
Open your console and type
This Command will allow you to search for MatchMaking Servers where you would have a ping of up to 350ms.
The next Command will allow us to select our own game server
If you want to go back to automatic server selection just type
Selecting the Server
Next up we will select the Server Region we want to play in
sdr SDRClient_ForceRelayCluster <server>
Instead of <server> you will type in your preferred server region
This is a map of all server regions around the world

After you know which server you want type it's server code behind the Command.
sdr SDRClient_ForceRelayCluster lux
Let's take Luxemburg with the server code "lux" as an example.
Starting a Match
When you start searching for a match you should open your console to check if everything works properly.
You should see this while searching for a game.
If everything worked correctly this should show up in the console as soon as you find a match.
You can see that the client (you) is requesting a session from lux#9.
This means everything worked and we are connecting to a game server in Luxemburg.
