When I log into Dota 2, my autoexec chat channels like Southeast Asia 1, Trade Central etc do not open up. In addition, whenever I try to open them manually, they open up, but automatically close and disappear within one second. Also, since closing the party chat channel does not actually remove it, but merely clears chat, the party channel chat gets cleared every second, resulting in party members not being able to chat. This bug has affected not only me, but at least two other people in my friend list, which suggests that a large number of people might be facing this problem. I appeal to the devs to please do something about this quickly, since im my opinion, the game is crippled without chat channels. Thanks.
