  • Why my PING only up sometimes when I play Dota 2?

    Usually, I will use command prompt by pinging the " -t" to check my line connection stability to Google search engine. If stable, means my line is suitable to play Dota 2 with ping lower than 50ms.
    The weird thing was, sometimes when I play Dota 2, my Dota 2 ping will jump up to 1k+ or 2k+, 3k+(rarely). When I check at Dota 2 console, it showed me "Telling Steam not to update the app for the next 900 seconds".
    This is a Dota 2 Dev forum. I would like to ask the developer to explain, what does it means? I am a user and I deserve to know what is running on the console, else what's the use for user to be authorized in using the console?
    Sometimes, I feel like being spam by someone...when I switch my Internet connectivity to my mobile hotspot line, then the ping will dropped to below 100ms and never up to thousand ms.
