  • Number Glitch

    I had a very strange problem earlier today. I loaded Dota 2 during a game of Frozen Synapse and every number for my stats was glitched. I forgot to take a screen shot, but it's pretty simple to describe.

    I had 99 wins, 99 losses, 99 abandons, 99 wins with hero1, 99 losses with hero1, 99 wins with hero 2, 99 losses with hero2, 99 wins with hero3, and 99 losses with hero3. They were actually called "Hero1" "Hero2" and "Hero3". I was level 22, with 222/999 experience. I tried matchmaking to see what would happen, and it never entered. I could still see people talking though.

    I reset Dota 2 and the page never opened up, I just got a black screen. I closed and reopened Steam after that and it resolved the problem.

    Nothing has been able to reproduce this, so I'm assuming it was a freak occurrence.

    this happens when steam/dota2 can connect to dota 2 servers but can't retrieve your steam account's dota 2 data for whatever reason; the 99 across the board with 'playername' and 'hero' are the template values for the variables that your profile usually fills in with your own information.

    doesn't happen to me, ever, but i have friends with less than reliable internet that report the occurence once a month or so. all it takes is a restart, typically, but if it's occuring often then it's definitely something that should be posted in performance & technical support.
