  • dota 2 commendations not working

    Hi, as stated in the title, the commendations in Dota 2 is not working for me. Have a few players commend me these few days but the commendation numbers just did not add up at all.

    Maybe they run out of commendation available to give to or they lied to you just so that you'll give them commendation back.

            Disambiguation and further commentary / feedback in the below thread:


            The point of the matter is that there are sufficient commendations available to be issued, and when issued, they do not get approved by the DotA 2 platform.

            If one of the Devs or mods (or an experienced user with information on this matter) could explain why this is happening and how to resolve it, it would be greatly appreciated.

              This should be fixed, is it still happening?

                Been playing a bit this weekend and looks like its been resolved; I got a new commendation straight after someone said they gave one.

                Thanks for the fast turnaround time and update, DanielJ.

                You guys on the Valve Dev team rock!

                  Of course it is, it's been happening all year long. Sticky your post or people won't hand out commendations, they'll assume they're still not fixed. Why wasn't this in any patch notes AFAIK?
                  I will mercilessly add to my ignore list anyone that makes an incredibly annoying signature.
