CAN'T RECONNECT to game after computer crash!
I was playing a bot game the other day, and my computer decided it was a good time to make updates. So the game closed, everything else closed, and then the computer restarted.
As soon as the computer was back on, I connected onto steam, and clicked to play DotA2. The game opened, and when I clicked play it said I had a game in progress.
So I clicked on reconnect, but then a message appeared saying:
Disconnected from Server
You must be in a lobby to connect
So I tried clicking on a lobby but I couldn't.
I tried quitting the game.. and it told me that ''Leaving a game before it has finished may ruin the game for other players. Do you really wish to quit Dota 2?''
So I turned the game off using ctrl+alt+delete. When I restarted, it was the same... I still could not reconnect to the game.
Since when I clicked on reconnect it would just pop a warning message, then I just left the game there, on the reconnect screen... and for about an hour nothing happened...
I really wished I could have reconnected... but it seems like there was no way to do it...
Thanks for reading about this bug.
Same here, after restarting steam it seemed to have downloaded a minor dota update, then after each restart of dota it said "game client out of date" etc., without the game being avaible anymore. /Veryfing game file integrity didn't help

Same here, good thing it's only a coop bot game.
add me to the list of players who forgot to join the lobby before reconnecting to a game.
