  • Restarting DOTA during a match unequips cosmtic items and voids strange item counters

    Disconnecting/restarting DOTA in a match and reconnecting unequips your cosmetic items (as seen visually on character and the glass magnifier icon) - this results in strange counters not working or counting anything for the entire game

    1) Play a match
    2) Kill heros or earn gold (whatever strange counters you have)
    3) Task manager close DOTA 2
    4) Reconnect
    5) Items are gone both visually and on your glass magnifier
    6) Finish the match

    Strange counters do not update (I have a gold earned strange counter in addition to kills, and I have been tracking it to gauge my total farm for Faceless Void, it did not update in this game or the kills)

    Items should stay on and strange counters should update
