I grinded real fast to just wanna play ranked and currently waiting time is long. i don’t really mind the 100ms lag

I am only answering from my experience.

The matchmaking tries to find opponents in your area and on your (skill) level. The longer you wait, the more the system widens the search.
Meaning, if there are no opponents in your area, you will get somebody from farther away eventually. I’ve played against a few US monsters back in the days of very low population.
