Thread: Paid in-game but can only access spectator mode.

  1. #1

    Paid in-game but can only access spectator mode.

    Hi all.

    I received the dota 2 spectator mode client a while ago.

    I then decided to pay for the full game, and did so "in-game".

    I got a receipt from valve/steam wallet, but when i relogged in to the game it was still in spectator mode.

    Now its been a week and I've spent several hours in steam/dota2 trying to solve the problem.

    Im 100% sure they charged the amount from my credit card.

    Anyone heard of this issue before?

    Im not sure who to contact, dota 2 or steam support?

    All Best

    You need to go to your Steam profile -> Inventory -> Dota 2 -> Select the Dota 2 Invite and Activate it

    Also bought the game and can't play - Spectator only version...

    I'm having the same problem.

    Purchased the invite bundle (2 invites and gear), downloaded the game through Steam and installed. Clicked on play now but it says I have the spectator only version and that I need to buy the game...

    I don't have any activation packs or anything in my Steam Inventory under Steam or Dota 2. It says I own the game in Steam but when I launch Dota 2 I can't play as it asks me to purchase the game...

    have emailed Steam, no reply - anyone have any ideas?
