  • Tournament ticket courier 'games viewed' inflation bug

    It's still possible to inflate the games viewed on couriers beyond the number of games that are presently available. This affects the Star Ladder Grillhound and the Wynchell the Wyrmeleon couriers and potentially any other items that have a 'games viewed' counter.

    Repro Steps:
    1. Have a 'games viewed' courier (Star Ladder Grillhound or Wynchell the Wyrmeleon) in your inventory.
    2. Watch a corresponding live tournament game or replay that you have not viewed previously.
    3. Leave the game (not the client)
    4. Using task manager (Ctrl + Shift + ESC), Select dota.exe and then End Task.
    5. Launch Dota 2 and repeat from Step 2 as many times as you want.

    The courier's games viewed should have remained, but the viewed status of the games within the tournament page should have reset to their status of viewed or unviewed before that session. This allows a player to continually increase the courier's games viewed.

    Expected Result:
    Games viewed shouldn't be able to be artificially increased.
