Server Owners can change the country to whatever they want, the problem currently is there's mostly (90%) fake servers on the site and no cleaning.

Then you have not fully understood the reasons given in the link - specifically that it is impossible to guarantee the country / location of an IP address, and therefore impossible to enforce fairly.
Removing the filter would provide no positive benefit.

The topic is old and repeated many times.
The policy will not be changed.
