  • Steam Client Bootstrapper draining bandwidth on startup

    Every time i open dota 2 Steam Client Bootstrapper starts downloading something, it usually takes 5 minutes because i have a slow 1 mb line(South Africa).
    The problem comes in when my dota 2 freezes and i have to restart the game because when i reconnect i have to download all this info again so i play with 800ms for 5 mins.
    What is it downloading every time i enter dota 2. Maybe this info could be cached.

    I don't know if this is the right thread, i am presuming its the dashboard.
