"Disconnected from server. Unable to establish connection to the server" :(
Hello Dota 2 Dev Team,
Let me start with emphasizing on how good the DotA2 is and how much fun and joy it brings to play it. Thank you all very much for creating such a blockbuster!
As for my question: sometimes during the mid-game connections get dropped and it becomes impossible to reconnect back due to some strange "Disconnected from server. Unable to establish connection to the server" issue: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile.../?id=136641283
What it does is not only lowering your rankings, adds one more game to ABANDONED counter (which is unfair), but also it is very frustrating if your mates (and you) got lost an almost won game, you have to wait for them to die-hard trying to save it plus all the other unplesant things related. If I understand this correctly, the issue is connected with some net routing problems. And, in most cases, it should be connected with ones on ISP's side, I presume. So, the question is, would it be possible to add some kind of a net routing checker for the connection between your PC and the game server? Just so we can address the issue better and know, whom to contact in this regards.
P.S. Can you please not to count my game on April 4th on Brewmaster into the stats/rankings? I am on a strick atm Thanks
This just happened to me minutes ago and I dont have internet problems. It was right in the middle of the game. It forces me to abandon which I always refuse to do( I have 0 Abandons) . It's very annoying and game breaking. Its the first time this happened me.

Also Experiencing Unable to Establish Connection to the Server
I am also experiencing the same issue. I restarted my Dota 2 client as well but it still gives me that same error message.
Just happened. Same as Toliet. Still had Internet.

Check the firewall settings. When i've disabled firewall i got no problems like that anymore.
Sometimes me too. But I didn't disconnect in game, I got disconnected when trying to start game (after finish finding match).
"Unable establish connection to the server"!! After trying to start game, i am on the asian server, anyone got solution?
I've also never had any problems with this..but all of the sudden just now I got the error. It's really frustrating! Any solutions yet?
Been there too. Valve is just taking a vacation and not maintaining their servers, apparently. A heads up things aren't going right from them would be much appreciated but they can't be bothered. Guess my key buying needs to stop until they get their act together.
