  • sometimes cant watch friends games

    sometimes theyre playing dota2 and i cant watch their games. sometimes itll work and itll say their hero and level

    also does it matter if they prevented people from viewing their profile? cause i cant view their games even when it lists their hero. and does it matter if the game is private or ladder? or is this some bug?

    help and thanks!

    If it's a practice game and they've disabled spectators, this will happen.

      ok thanks. i guess what needs to be fixed is the status display. sometimes it doesnt display immediately. not really a big problem, but can certainly be improved

        Steam doesn't seem to update friends status' that frequently. Even though every time you leave/join a game the console changes your chat status to IN_LOBBY, IN_GAME, PRE_GAME etc.
