  • Please confirm: Slowness in steam chat and in dota 2 client after period of time

    I've been hanging out in the trade channels for a while the past few weeks. After a certain period of time -- about 1 to 2 games length of time, I experience slowness in the dota client itself and most noticeably in Steam client when I press alt+tab and chat in steam. The slowness I experience range from : the words not being typed as i pressed the keys in my keyboard to the ctrl+A+delete to clear what you've typed.

    I PC isn't the best computer in the world but I maintain it myself, no bloatware whatsoever. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Same happens, Dota usually runs smoothly, but after 2-3 games overlay starts to open almost in slow motion, and game generally becomes slow. I also become unable to alt+tab (game freezes).

      I've noticed some correlation as well... maybe its because the chat keeps track of all hundreds of messages that are spammed at the chat since you joined it...
