  • Intermittent issues with keyboard/mouse

    This happens to me randomly once in a while (around

    At first everything is fine and then suddenly during a game, I start seeing issues with my keyboard and mouse.
    The game doesn't register some of my keystrokes and mouse clicks and this happens with all my hotkeys. I've also noticed this gets way worse if I'm near multiple other heroes. For example, if I'm standing alone and trying to press Q it works after pressing it 2 times but if I'm around other heroes it might take 5 keystrokes to get the game to register the Q.
    I know this is not an issue with my keyboard and mouse because the keyboard and mouse works fine in in-game chat, it's just the game commands that don't get registered. The input devices are also working fine outside of DOTA at the same time.
    I've not seen the issue in local lobby.
    I have updated drivers and play other steam games as well but this only happens in DOTA and when it does happen it doesn't go away even after restarting everything, but when I try to play the next day it's working fine most of the times.

    Solutions I tried -
    • Tried restarting PC and router both but that didn't help.
    • Connected to the game using 3 different internet connections but the issue still remained.
    • Tried a different keyboard and this still happens.
    • Factory reset my PC and reinstalled the game and the I didn't notice the problem for a few months but it started happening again today.
