            My "k" key stops working randomly in the chat box. It's not bound to anything game-related. It simply stops working :\


            • #36
              it happens to me occasionally, it quite often so now when i type "i" i always use capital letter "I".

              quite annoying but im sure will be fixed later

                  I think I have the same bug reported here by others long ago. I do some game and randomly my keyboard starts to lag, the characters appear after 3-4 seconds and sometimes repeating characters never come down, or I do not see some characters typed. I often use the pregame chat while waiting for the players and during hero pick, but I do not know if it is reconnected to this event. The lag is present as well as in Dota also chat on steam and if I close Dota the problem remains of steam. I close Steam but the problem remains. Restart the PC and the problem is solved. But the only thing I noticed is that the bug start in Dota 2...
                  There have been news about this bug?
                  Thanks for your attention ...
                  P.S. I have a logitech wireless keyboard, but I also tried with a usb but the problem remains ...

                    I have a strange keyboard bug that I believe is also caused by typing during the swap between pre-game/game, or game/post-game. Since I'm brazilian, I use ABNT2 pattern keyboard. So, when I type during a transition as said before, the ABNT2 stops working, but the keyboard remains responsive. For this reason, I can no longer type characters like "รง" or "?" properly (I need to use my keyboard as if it was an English standard, so to type "?" I must press "Shift" + ";"). The only way to solve this is by restarting the game client. It's VERY MUCH annoying. I hope you fix it soon. Thank you.
