    If you are crashing with "could not load library client" you should validate your game files in steam.

    Crash once in every single game or replay after the recent update. It happens usually during some intense team fight.

    Just no word. I upgraded my com just so I can play dota2 without hassle that my old built used to have. Couple months in and now you are ending my enjoyment already? It is turning more like TF2 where you don't give a crap about FPS or crashes when you added all those "special effect" for Unusuals. How do you fuxk it up so bad again on a game that I love? I am starting to see a pattern.

    I have made a promised not to buy a single game from you, nor any in game items. I don't see you are giving a crap about your players nor committing to make a workable product.

    Why isnt this sticky ?

    second off for lag issues
    set launch options to this -high -noforcemaccel -dxlevel 8
    and crash on win key might be caused be this launch option some people tell you to use "-nod3d9ex"

    and im running dota on a 500$ laptop with a amd apu "E450" (1.65ghz dual core & HD 6320) and my friends with gtx 670 and that stuff have lag issues
