HUGE lag spikes - game unplayable

  • HUGE lag spikes - game unplayable

    Hi guys!

    Well, I've REALLY been wanting to play since the Reborn update, was very excited about it, but for about a month already, I can't play the game properly.

    Both in the regular and Reborn client I have been experiencing HUGE lag spikes. The game would run smooth for 10 seconds and then BAM - HUGE lag spike. And this would go on the entire game (custom game or normal game).
    The game would look like a slidewshow for a couple of seconds. The same thing is happening to a couple of friends of mine who live in the same city as I do (Podgorica, Montenegro).

    I wasn't even able to connect to any server at all on Reborn a couple of weeks ago (I was able to connect in the regular client but with lag).

    Now I can, but when I go to the regions in the play menu, I refresh the pings and sometimes the closest servers (EU EAST is closest) gow as low as 30 ping, or they get as high as 1400 ping (1400 is extreeme example, usually goes up to about 200 ping, but it did happen once).

    I really want to get this fixed somehow, I cannot play the game like this at all. I have no lag and no fps drops when playing a local game against bots.

    My PC specs:
    Intel i7 3770
    AMD HD7970
    24GB of RAM
    Windows 10 Pro (updated from Win 7)

    EDIT: I just played a custom game (Angel Arena) that WASN'T on a dedicated Valve server, and I had less lag than on Valve dedicated servers. It's also raining today so it isn't surprising that there would be a little bit of lag.

    Hi sir
    Try a Guide about cl_interp , Rate , cl_cmdrate and cl_updaterate (autoexec.cfg remember there is a new path to it that means you should move it from dota 2 source 1 path to reborn one )
    you can find it all over the net
    it is easy to find and thats why i dont explain more

    Goodluck

      Hello good sir!

      Ok, thanks! I will try that out!

      EDIT: I tried it, but then Steam downloaded a Dota update, and since then neither 32 bit nor 64bit version of the game are working. Both of them crash after loading screen with no error message...

      EDIT 2: I am reinstalling Dota, will update on if that helped or not.

          I reinstalled DOTA. It still won't open through the launcher. It also doesn't work by running the 32bit or 64bit clients as administrator in the Steam directory... sigh

            have you tried open gl in dota 2 DLC ? its for the nvidia users but maybe can solve your problem too

            you should use -gl in launch option before using it

                    I did download it, yes.

                    Also, no errors jump out, the game just freezes and stays like that.

                    Once i click anywhere on the frozen screen the game crashes with the standard "dota not responding".

                    I tried veryfying game cache before I reinstalled the game, but that didn't help :P

                      Zdravo

                      I have a similar problem so i pinched in.
                      Today i played my first game after the merging and it was horrible. I used to play in reborn all the time and had no problems at all, the game was running even better than on the old platform! So the hero wouldnt pick up commands, each action performed had a 4sec delay! Moving, changing direction, attacking and casting! Everything else is normal so it wasnt like a lagg when everything freezes just me unable to give out any controls. I was maniacally clicking so i could change the direction of going for a slightest bit!
                      We lost in the end just because my game was unplayable. My ping was around 50 which was cool but i have never experienced such problems in the gameplay.

                      Hope someone can help me

                        well for the last method that i know for now

                        Exit the steam go to steam folder and delete the appcache folder
                        then get back in the steam and put the -autoconfig in launch option also delete your autoconfig.cfg + other launch options for now and test it
                        i will look forward to it , to find better solutions

                        Good luck

                            I just tried that... didn't work either :P thanks you anyway for your time and help! Hopefully Valve solves this somehow.

                            I wanna play some DOTA and this is making it impossible.

                              ya me too the last client even i had like 10-20% packet lost or jitter that was not any problem for me
                              but now in new client even 1% loss causes game lags which is annoying
