  • [SUGGESTION] Automatically re-open Dota2 if a match is found while Alt-Tabbed

    Thread title. I'm often looking at game guides or doing random internet things while looking for a match. It would be convenient if the game automatically re-opened if a match is found while the game is minimized.

    That loud "HOLY SHIT YOU HAVE FOUND A GAME" sound is not enough?
    SEARCH FUNCTION, SEARCH FUNCTION, SEARCH FUNCTION. DAMNIT.

      i do agree, but anyone else who reads this thread will probably say "You get the sound still and your tray icon will blink anyway"

        currently its buggy, and sometimes the sound doesn't play when minimized.

        Also you can't assume that everyones sound device supports playing sound from a process that doesn't have window focus.

          Which is exactly my case, the sound doesn't play for me. Regardless, it's just better functionality to have the client re-open.

              i think a button of surrender in min 25+ can be usable and if the 5 people of the team click it it gives the other team the win

                    It's rude if that gets implemented. Imagine watching prOn and Dota2 suddenly pops out. What a turn-off.

                        no needs, after release with online more then 100ppl matchmaker should find a match almost instantly.

                          I think a steam popup or steam notification would be better.
