  • Can't enter matchmaking in low-priority


    Unfortunately I had to abandon a couple of games two days in a row, and I ended up getting placed in LP - certainly deserved. I have served my ban time (I think it was about an hour.) However, over the past couple of days I have tried repeatedly to find a match, and I can't.

    The issue is thus:
    I load up Dota 2, and go to "unranked".
    I deselect all options, with the exception of "Single Draft".
    I click "Find Match" and I get a message box saying "Single draft is the only game mode allowed in the low priority pool."
    I've tried going through all other game modes and ensure everything is deselected in every game mode (Even bot game) but still I get the same message. Very frustrating!

    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, I've tried using -autoconfig and -safe commands but no luck. I've searched online but I can only find a couple of threads where people have had similar issues and no fixes are offered.

    Any ideas?

          More information, today I could play a Single Draft game because I were in a group (unfortunately we lose so I steal have to win 4 games...)
          But steal the same problem solo. Impossible to acces Single Draft matchranking.
