  • Unable to reconnect to a game with a coach

    Played a game just before, game was fine no lag no delay.

    Next game a friend of mine wanted to watch in real time so he joined as coach. About 6-7 minutes in I get disconnected from the game. Then while trying to reconnect all I get is the loading screen for about 2 minutes followed by:

    Disconnected from server
    Unable to establish connection to server.

    Restarted Dota2, tried to reconnect several time but after a minute or two would get the same message. It wasn't until my friend left and reconnected that I could re-join the game but by this time I had already got an abandoned.

    Not sure if my friend leaving was what enabled me to re-join but everything else worked just fine while I could not connect back to the server. Mumble, Skype, Steam, and browsers all worked fine.

    Just wanted to post this to see if other people have had the same problem or if this was a known issue so I can avoid letting friends coach in the future.
