  • Downloading Content everytime I start the game (account specific)

    Hello Everyone,

    I noticed recently (2 days ago) that every time I start Dota 2, it would always download some content prior launching. What's weird is this only happens on my account and when my friend tries his account(on my pc) dota starts right away, we also tried logging into his account first after restarting or at the beginning of the day but it seems only my account has this bug every time I start Dota 2. I also tried to verify integrity of local files but the problem still persists.

    Additional info, it says "Launching" and "Downloading Content" on the Library tab but on the DOWNLOADS tab there seems to be no download of any sorts.

    Thanks in advance on those who can help. Have a great day and keep safe everyone! Cheers!
