  • Game crash during Ability draft

    As a mentor my screen freezes and dota crashes during the picking phase in ability draft.

    Player Crash - Ability Draft

    This normally happens during the ability draft phase (2-3 rounds in), however today I focused on keeping ram cleared, lowered settings to improve fps and ram use, and I also kept my screen in the main menu of Dota whenever it wasn't my draft, and I made it through all four skill drafts. However I ended up crashing while waiting for the game to start. Before I crash Dota freezes and I receive the spinning rainbow wheel. Then it crashes and I get the "Application Crashed" error.

    I definitely do not have a gaming computer, Mac mini Mid 2011 2gb Ram, however I kept my graphics low (never crash during other modes with higher settings) and I used a ram clearer and had around 300mbs when the crash occurred the time I made it to the fourth skill draft.

    Also during the ability draft phase it doesn't show disconnects.

        I was going to make a thread about this, but I'm having an identical issue. I have consistently (as in every single game) crashed in the drafting phase of ability draft, usually after my first sometimes second pick. Very frustrating- usually end up randoming a good kit anyway. Still fix this though.

          I love playing AD, but i am having this crash EVERY SINGLE GAME, and in this mode only. I play in a MacBook Pro and i rarely crash, but at this mode i always crash at the same phase as others mentioned.

          Please fix this as soon as possible.

              If you coach a party in an ability draft game, it works at first but once players start picking the whole game freezes. Same if you reconnect still during the draft. I assume some code on the your next pick timer isn't designed to handle not having picks yourself.
