  • Dota 2 Not Launching

    Screen Shot 2021-03-31 at 9.28.34 AM.png This happened after I deleted Dota 2 and Steam altogether.
    The original issue was that Dota 2 was performing very poorly.. Screen is blank after choosing a hero.

    I am using a Macbook Pro 13-inch (late 2011) model.
    i have successfully installed Steam.
    I have successfully installed Dota 2

    The issue is now, I can't even launch the game!!!
    What happens is that it shows something is loading (previously, it was the dota 2 icon. Now it's just an unmarked icon), then, it just stops loading.

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled for 3 times over. Nothing is working.

    Can you look at this please, as the whole city is on lockdown (again), this is the only way I'm coping up with it.

    Unmarked Dota 2 icon next to Steam Icon. That thing shows and then disappears, Dota 2 does not launch at all.
