  • Post-reborn, DOTA completely unable to start normal or ranked games

    So I'm getting some weird behavior that's basically made it impossible to play DOTA since the reborn update.

    I can get into the client and move through the menus just fine. Starting solo practice games works as well. However, every time I try to start a normal or ranked game (all-pick us-west) after waiting in the queue and accepting the match I get sent to the loading screen for about ~3 minutes. Then instead of going into the actual game it shoves me back to the main menu. No error messages, no prompts, nothing popping up in windows, nothing. Just compete silent back to menu error and disconnect.

    I tried verifying integrity of the games cache and reinstalling. I've checked firewall settings and they seem fine (the only thing I'm running anyway is windows firewall). Maybe it's some issue with the router? Is this common behavior in reborn?
