  • Dota 2 not-quite-crash

    So, I'm in-game in Dota 2, enjoying things, having a good time.

    Suddenly, my screen goes blank for a moment, and then the browser I have in the background is suddenly on my screen. I can still hear Dota 2 in the background, but I can't get it to display on-screen at all. I have to terminate the process and restart the game.

    It has happened three times today - once at the end of a botgame, and twice while I was trying to spectate TPL4 games (that I paid specifically to be able to watch in-client, I'd like to add). It's not helping that right now, when I try to log back in, I get stuck on the "connecting to the dota 2 network" bullshit that should've been fixed months ago.

    Just happened again. I was in game for less than ten minutes.

      And now it just happened in the middle of a game. And I can't reconnect because, when I start the game, I get stuck on "Connecting to the Dota 2 Network." When is this going to be fixed?


      • #4
        I had the connecting thing few mins ago too. Try starting game form steam.

          Just had it happen three times in a single game. It might've happened more, but at that point, I just abandoned since it was only a botgame and we were winning anyway.

          Guess I'm done playing until this is fixed.
