  • Dota 2 client is automatically searching for game

    As soon as i pulled up Dota 2 i looked away for 2 seconds and the "accept" "decline" option popped up for whether or not i would like to enter a game. I had not clicked or done anything to provoke the search. After the game i closed Dota 2 down and restarted to see if it would happen again, which it did not. Is this a common glitch?

    I noticed it commonly happens after a game server restart. For some reason it's almost like there are a lot of players in the queue and it quickly processes them all at once after a restart.
    Basically, if you were searching for a game and the server shuts down, after it restarts it "remembers" you were searching (or in-game, depending on the scenarion, after which you'd gate "Unable to locate game session").

    Still the problem is if you don't accept you get in a temporary LPQ and have to wait until you can search again.
