  • All local game files deleted after an unknow crash.

    So, my game crashed and gave no warning, no reason, nothing. I tried to reconnect but as soon as I clicked "Reconnect" it crashed again. It was like nothing ever happened, it was like closing a file. The screen just instantly vanished and I was back to the desktop.

    But the weird thing came after: As the game had already crashed in similar way before, I knew I had to restart my PC in order to reconnect again. So I did. But when I logged in my steam acc, the Dota 2 was not even there, it asks me to install the game, I checked steamapp folder and there is no Dota 2 folder there, or anywhere. I don't know what the hell happened lol!

    Game crashed > Restarted PC > Dota 2 is missing.

    And I don't have a single clue why the game crashed to begin with. All the other games are fine.
