  • Hi, I have a problem connecting to my Dota games

    Whenever I get into a game of Dota, I usually have lag spikes in and out of games most of the time. They aren't too bad, as they are usually hinder some time, only a few seconds or more. It's mostly just an issue with my internet, but when the Nemestice update arrived, I sometimes get kicked out of games just for having a lag spike, though, not always. Here's the problem: Whenever this happens, in some instances, I will get kicked out of the game and when I try to get back in, the screen will go black and the Dota symbol will show, but I will end up back in the menu. Normally, when you reconnect to a game, a grey menu will appear and disassemble into smaller squares into a black screen, signaling that you reconnected to the game. The one where the Dota symbol shows up is the problem, as it just permanently kicks me out of the game! I don't think that it is an internet problem, but rather a server exchange issue where the game thinks that you are a completely different user connecting to the same game that you were in, but it's just a guess. If you have time, I'm sure you can fix this problem. Thanks!

    Same issue since the update, according to my friend in the game my character isn't disconnected from the game even though i'm already stuck in home screen ,hence why pressing reconnect doesn't work. Devs need to fix this fast. Been several days now and its happening in multiple servers apparently.

      my DotA2 client won't start up. Basically I'll log onto steam, and then press "play" for DotA2.. steam will recognize that I'm trying to open up DotA2 and say that I'm in game for a second.. and then the game never starts up and my status is set back to regular "Online". Please Help!! I encountered this issue since yesterday, have tried all the youtube/google methods even resorting to redownloading dota2 but does not work at all.
