  • [POSSIBLE BUG] Dota 2 accepting games when in Alt-Tab.

    Okay let me start off by saying I call it a "possible" bug, because this can be just me having short-term memory problems, but as follows:

    The bug happened 3 times, 1 of which I didn't memorize, since I shrugged it off as aforementioned memory issues. I don't know whether the following is relevant since I never actually went afk on picking stage for more then 5 minutes and this maybe just what happens when you run out of money on picking stage, but one time I opened the window with my game to find out that I was playing Death Prophet in Ranked All Pick and almost 4 minutes into the game already (post-horn). It's important to note that I suck with Death Prophet and I never random, so this particular occurence was definitely NOT my doing.

    Repro Steps:
    As I mentioned I don't recall one time, but 2 other times I was in alt-tab watching youtube (dotacinema actually). The information that may be relevant is:
    - OS: Win 7 Home Basic.
    - Screen: 4:3 (I put it here, because time scroller on youtube is around the area of accept button, could be that)
    - Browser: Mozilla Firefox
    - Flash: Latest to the date of posting
    - Display Mode: Fullscreen

    The game accepted matches (and picked hero in one case) for me without notifying me whatsoever.

    Expected Result:
    Well, it's obvious that if such a design is intended it should either be included in game options and strongly stressed out in its existence or shouldn't exist at all, thus I am assuming it is a bug.
