        i'm software developer myself and did lots of server apps in the past.

        so in your endless wisdom pls tell us...

        perhaps the stupidity to take offline all servers at once and totally kill the service for an update or fix? oh great! really, try that with a real customer in the business field and you can be sure that your contract is cancelled within very short time
        this is why one usually uses staging systems and do fixes step by step so at least one server is alyways online to work on (play on in this case).

        but i guess you in your total insight know it better than 99,9% of the software developers out there and take offline the whole system for a uncertain timespan... yeah, if i think about it it sounds total legit *sarcasm*

          Umm, This has nothing to do with dota 2 servers. The dota 2 servers are all still up and running all over the world. The problem right now is with steam. Steam runs all the matchmaking and chat etc. Whatever problem they are having now is related to steam, hence why even counter-strike source matchmaking is down. And they are not taking anything down for a 'fix'. Something happened that they were not expecting, hence EMERGENCY MAINTENANCE, instead of scheduled.

            Is there something you don't understand in "emergency system maintenance"? Also, servers =/= auth server, etc.. There might be a reason why this kind of problem happens in all kind of games (happened a lot to WoW, happened to LoL, happened to HoN). So either: everyone working for those companies for the last decade is brainless OR they have no other way to fix that kind of problem.

            • If they game gets once released I hope this issue will become history. So unproductive and big disadvantage for the company and game.

                    And if they give us an eta, if they miss it, people will just freak out. And it isnt going to speed anything up.

                      I did server apps too, mostly in college. I finished computer science.

                      But this doesn't matter and it's not important. They said "Due to emergency maintenance, The Dota 2 Network is offline." Maintenance means servers offline, and yes, most of the time all servers.

                      We don't know if it was hardware or software related but for sure they had a good reason for that. We'll never know the exact problem.

                      Also I had friends who were in game and I couldn't connect. That was 1 hour ago or so.

                          so i checked my match history today, and my last game was submitted but still no battle point!

                            • Just to clarify something. Before even changing ur internet plan. Check the upload speeds. If they don't change but only the download speed, it's 90% likely that ur ping will remain the same.

                              • I think your servers are a mess, lately I'm having problems with it. Every single day it goes down for a period of time and I can't connect to Dota2 Network. Since 1/17 I'm having this issue.
