    Today i experienced this Problem already the third time, I think. So i thought i should post it here as a bug:
    I tried to start DotA 2, the Valve Intro came and the Main Menu loaded. These door like things close, but don't open, even if i click on any of the Tabs at the Top (Like Today, Play, and so on)
    The game isn't even connecting to a Chat Server, only thing working ingame is the Steam Overlay, the Exit Button and the Menu Button.
    It just looks like this and "freezes":
    Even if i tried to restart DotA 2 i couldn't do more as mentioned above. After i restarted Steam and started DotA 2, the menu got normal, etc.

    (Sorry for my Bad english.. I hope you can still understand it )

          Unable to enter today's page

          I get this error sometime when playing the game whereby today's page will not load after the game loads. The console then shows CGCClientJobFindSourceTVGames failed to get a reply. Clicking on any other tabs does not work also. I have attached a screenshot.

            Get this too, it would be nice to not have to restart Steam every time I close Dota

                    Seems like some problems with the servers do happen right now. I would just wait, until VALVe fixes it ^^

                      I've restarted both Steam and computer, I'm somehow still getting the closed door bug.
                      This is my first time encountering this bug.

                          There is no temporary fix, you have to wait for Valve to fix it.

                            i think it must be something with the servers within the past 10 minutes or so.
