  • Clicking 'Play' on Any Hero Closes the Game

    After this patch, I went to go pre-load in a custom lobby, attempting to select Huskar to practice last hitting before I intended on trying him out in Least Played. The game loads fine, selecting a hero works fine, but once I click 'Play' to assume control, the game just stops and, after a minute or two, closes without any error or warning message. Repeated attempts ended the same. Attempting to spawn a different hero ended the same. Spectating a game works without any problems. I went and verified my files, but to no avail.

    Queueing with some friends, one of whom speculated that it may just be a custom lobby bug, I tried to load a matchmade game. Everyone else chose their heroes and loaded fine on my end. Picking last, I chose Lifestealer to jungle, but the crash happened again. Theorizing that hitting 'Reconnect' would allow me to bypass any error involving the 'Play' button, I was disappointed to find out the game would still stop and close as soon as I was done loading.

    Therefore, I believe that this error has something to do with actually taking control of a hero.
    No matter how hard I try...

    I can't carry the entire world.
