    Guys please. I have some serious issue here.

    All matches have time out request for me. I try to request an past match and it says expired request. Even if the match was 5 mins ago, 1 day ago, 3 days ago. It happens with all matches, mine and friends or anybody. I can remember I got that issue since i try to get an replay through the browser. A post in reddit said you could download a match by typing on the address bar " dota2://matchid=the id ". After that i got that problem.

    Does anybody know how to fix please?

    yeah the servers are broken

    if you already have the match downloaded you can force dota to play it with playdemo replays/XXXXXXX.dem but as of right now you cant download any new replays

    i think icefrog and the team are aware of the issue though and are working on it.

    its been like this for a couple of days and theres at least 4 other threads on dev.dota2 about it.
