    This issue has been fixed for many people by updating their drivers. If you are experiencing the same issue, try updating your drivers. If that is not possible, or that didn't fix it for you, be sure to let us know. ~Hefaistus.

    Having the same issue since last patch as well. Also you can't see the hero icon in chat either (as in when they write something you won't know what hero said that) or when you press "\" to see the scoreboard.

          Yes. Exactly.. Lets see, u guys play on low res, using international skin etc..?


          • #6
            i play on 1366x768 res on borderless window
            and use intel hd graphics card

            this never happened to me until todays patch either

            i also deleted the vgui folder and tried verifying integrity of game cache but that didnt fix it.
            i then uninstalled and reinstalled the entire dota 2 but still no fix.

                      Missing Hero Icons

                      Getting the same issue along with the icons in Match History of Dota 2 profiles... See images below

                      No Hero Icon In Match History.jpg
                      No Hero Icon In Game.jpg

                      I also tried reinstalling and validating the game files. No fix. As others have said it only happened after the October 10, 2012 Update. This has never happened before.

                          Basically it's like all portraits were removed from the game.
