    Game laggs if a friend goes online or start chatting over steam

    i seriously hoped and prayed that valve fixed the bugs, weird fps and laggs in the new update... so i logged in, downloaded the update and started the game. everything was fine and even on highest settings the game ran smoothly and laggfree......until a friend of mine came online: the laggparty started and i wasnt able to play anymore. alright, pausing and restarting the game. again all fine...till my friend wrote me a message via steam - the game lagged again like hell.... another time i had to reconect. unfortunatly, a bit later, a few friends came online, so make a guess what happened: lagg/rec/lagg/rec - and in the end it resulted into low priority.

    valve, is it so hard to make a stable version for mac-players? all we want is to play dota without bootcamp or a wrapper.....

    Maybe. I took off notifications, but this is quite possibly happening to me since the last update.
    I will mercilessly add to my ignore list anyone that makes an incredibly annoying signature.

    well, turning of the notifications wont help - if one of my friends comes online in steam, dota begins to lagg. the worst scenario is if 2-3 friends come online at the same time: i wasnt even able to reconnect and i had to close the game with cmd+q

    Well, should be easy to confirm this. I'll do it next time I get on Steam.

    Happened to me, lagged like crazy when my friend started to chat with me when i was in-game.
    I like to do stupid stuff even when i know it's stupid.

    as i already wrote, disabling notifications or overlay wont help... it might be a problem with the memory usage (for a vers short time, but the laggs ingame will continur once they started...)

    Funny question, do you or any of your friends have that funny symbol that is going around? Or any funny symbols for that matter. This happened to me too, someone I had on my friends list had this: ҉҉҉҉҉҉҉҉҉҉҉҉ , and it lags my entire Mac to hell and gone whenever I view it (in game, or out of game in chat). I deleted him and the lag didn't happen again.
