  • Getting losses from practice games

    Hey all! I was testing the beastmaster axe glitch in a practice game, trying to figure out the repo steps, but decided to give up partway through and just closed the game (hit the menu in top left, then closed the game w/o leaving first). When I went back on, I noticed that I got a loss for the game. I manually added up my individual hero wins and losses just to make sure I wasn't remembering incorrectly, and lo-and-behold, the number of total losses from all my heroes combined is 1 less than the number of losses it shows in my record. If any Valve developer wants to look at my stats, they can confirm this. I'm not sure how to reproduce this, because I tried doing the same thing (creating a practice game, then closing Dota 2) but it didn't seem to give me a loss the 2nd time around. Possible bug, maybe worth looking into, but I couldn't reproduce, so I'm just posting in brainstorming for now, in case anybody else has come across anything similar!

    I have similiar issue. Got 5 losses, but i think its because of server problems. About 9 hours ago i tried to play some games, but after 10/10 players were found nothing happend. I hope they can get rid of these losses
    Edit: btw i still have this issue (just drops from game after 10/10 players are found)
