  • Stuck in hero selection

    Ranked all pick.

    Power went down during the loading with players list.

    On reconnect I got the randomly assigned Venge and could not "Enter battle". Tried reconnect once more, restart dota, restart steam, clicked "Enter battle" dozens of times. No effect.

    I have exactly the same problem.

    Game crashed during character selection and when i reconnected i was randomed viper but could not spawn my character in the game and was forced to stare at the selection screen until i eventually abandoned for inactivity.

      This is supremely frustrating. I have low priority because this happened to me 3x in a row

          In game bug at hero selection

          Playing a ranked game with a friend, joined the game, got in hero selection, game crushed, restarted, reconnected.

          I was given a hero (puck) I did not choose, could not enter the game, the game was just stuck at the hero selection screen.

          Tried disconnect, reconnect many times, tried to repick, nothing worked.

          I was forced to abandon the game which I could not enter, and now I'm stuck with 6 games in Low Priority.

          I would like you guys to work on the in game issues, as well as remove my 6 game punishment which I do not deserve.

          Looking forward for your answer.

            The issue remains undissolved

              just happened to me as well.

              Here is the video while this is happening.


              This is the aftermath of the game. In the scoreboard it says "unknown hero" with level 0 since I couldn't join the game from the beginning. Yet interestingly I didn't get an abandon.

                      I have encounter the same bug too, but my game didn't crash. It is in ranked match making. I selected my hero (I was 3rd to select on my team). Then I was stuck in the load out. i.e. I tried to press the button 'enter battle as vengeful spirit', but it doesn't do anything. I tried to highlight other heroes and press the button, and it still doesn't do anything. And unfairly, I got abbaddon and lost mmr. match id: 1657415020.
