        • Can anyone help me please? I can't find a game in Ranked Queue. I wait sometimes for 15 mins and I have 2200 MMR. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. I tried flushing dns, changing IP, restarting game/steam/PC, but nothing working. I'm connected to a wired internet connection. I only face this issue with Dota 2 because CS:GO working properly. I tried different servers but still couldn't find a game. Thank you!

                • Hello,

                  I've been recently having a high packet loss when trying to connect to Dubai Servers. This haven't been happening with me only but friends too.
                  I have 12 mbps connection and my ping is about 15 m/s. All of my friends have almost the same connection speed but we're having trouble loading into a game due to high packet loss. We can load into any other server (f.e. Europe East) but we're going to have a high ping (around 100). Please help since now we all have a 24 hour ban.

                  Thanks in advance.


                  • I've been having this packet loss issue for a long time. Please fix

                    • I am from Pakistan, using Fariya Networks ISP

                      The pings used to be around 50~ ms to Dubai Server, now they are 250+ms

                      Looks like I won't be able to play Dota anymore

                      The ISP domain name is:

                      this message will probably go ignored

                        • This is getting ridiculous.......

                          I posted this on steam:

                          Had enough of connection problems and being sent to single draft....
                          So this is getting worse. The quality of the Connection to Dota servers is getting worse by the week. Now, every week i have connection problems that are making me going to the single draft as a punishment. Loading times are at times getting long and being stuck resulting in a fail.
                          Now i am in the single draft again and loading a new game yesterday resulted on a long loading screen and apparently gave me a an abandon. At the end of the game the results were delayed because of heavy load. Today i log in to find out i have been awarded 5 more games on the single draft! how awesome!!!............ Nothing has changed on my system, my internet connection works well. Just the stability to the servers is crap. And i know im not the only one because all games there are players getting disconnected or when i go to a new game only at the 4th or 5th try all players are able to load.
                          Valve, pull your ♥♥♥♥ together and invest in more servers. Specially in Dubai servers. Which are the ones giving me trouble......

                          As i write this, i am on the 4th try to get all players to connect and now one just went offline.... Nice piece of work valve....
                          and guess what?!?!!?!? Failed to connect to a game in time because dota 2 coordinator was slow and as a compensation i get 5 matchs on single draft and low priority!!!!!! ffs..... valve get your crap together. this is utterly ridiculous!
                          ANd yeet again, i struggle to connect to a game. failed 2 times on the loading screen. it just gets stuck....
                          This is my trace:


                          Pinging [] with 32 bytes of data:

                          Did a recheck of the files and 2 failed so i updated but as it is now i dont want to try again because the way the system is set up is too punitive even if it is not my faullt. I put money into the game yet i am always being penalised when it is not my fault. at least directly.
                          Getting really frustrated and not enjoying playing dota as much.... constant connection issues, heavy lag in game and a lot of disconnects from others players mid game. This is not just me, this is generalized. Never had a problem like this when i was back in UK. now that i in UAE, this happens every week.
