DOTA 2 Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • DidarAbay Didar Abay (@DidarAbay) reported

    @wykrhm Problems with phone number..I connected number but Dota saying its error

  • Noorgrin1337 Noorgrin (@Noorgrin1337) reported

    Matchmaking changes sound good on paper, but i highly doubt Valve will really enforce them... they showed so much incompetence regarding this issues in the past already... I also predict calibration games will be a shitfest full of smurfs boosting their mates/each other #dota2

  • aarongoh Aaron Goh (@aarongoh) reported

    @DOTA2 hi, i am unable to play ranked because of "Dota Phone Association" bug. my current number is only linked to this account as ive removed all the numbers from my other accounts. but it still does not work. pls help and fix...

  • Maverick00_ Maverick (@Maverick00_) reported

    @Chef_Smoke In Dota, a good friend of mine goes mid with a hero who's supposed to be a hard support by design and carries the ******* game with some of the spiciest shit I've seen. Valve embraces the creativity of players and team comp, without letting anyone have anything too broken,

  • frendazoned Killuafan1995 (@frendazoned) reported

    void could be the most broken hero in dota and the people that pick him on my team will still find ways to be completely ******* useless lol

  • Maverick00_ Maverick (@Maverick00_) reported

    @ANGELONsTweets It's kinda like that in a lot of games now from what I hear. The only one I have experience with is Dota 2, which has had such an awful problem with role queuing that supports get matched with people like, two ranks below them on their team, which is awful.

  • DouglasCartee DouglASSWHOOPIN Cartee (@DouglasCartee) reported

    @MemoFrame @DOTA2 People who refuse to invest any money into DotA likely don't play very much anyways, and as such aren't very good at the game. A one time entry fee into ranked would vastly improve the overall play experience, even when not considering the smurf issue.

  • DouglasCartee DouglASSWHOOPIN Cartee (@DouglasCartee) reported

    @Flamenemix @DOTA2 It shouldn't be an issue if your team understands what's happening and doesn't report you for role abuse.

  • FilipeDurk Durk (@FilipeDurk) reported

    @kato_noor @DOTA2 My friend he got the same problem m8...

  • AlanRoland11 Alan Roland (@AlanRoland11) reported

    @DOTA2 Fix the cheater

  • meou2321 MeomaikA (@meou2321) reported

    @DOTA2 I think this 20 years of chain punishment is far too strict to my case, I believe there're a system error, please review my case

  • rohan_esports Rohan (@rohan_esports) reported

    Love the communication from Valve on Dota related issues. Meanwhile, the Starladder Berlin Major DMCA Issues - still no communication

  • yoori_ebooks /yo{2,}ri_ebooks/i (@yoori_ebooks) reported

    Nice. Babysitting money and get to play dota all stars in war 3 crits. eat it rolls high or any perceived issues with my vm issues aren't over

  • KhaotiKlutch KhaotiKlutch (@KhaotiKlutch) reported

    I think its time to fix the main accounts behavior score and get back to some real dota games

  • CoachShinshi Shinshi_ (@CoachShinshi) reported

    @Tsonis_bo @FortniteGame Unfortunately the main issue is Greece and not fortnite :/ For example Dota's EU east server is in Austria and my ping is never lower than 45,the problem is that we don't have fiber to home in Greece, we will have it ( in Athens at least) in the next 2-3 years

  • BeggerTT BeggerT (@BeggerTT) reported

    @Maskett81 @Nors3 @CSGO @DOTA2 Only problem im getting is that people from middle East are queueing into Stockholm servers and ******* my game up with their 500 ping.

  • KinSuperPhoenix Super Phoenix (@KinSuperPhoenix) reported

    @HealsIut @KDAAkaIi And I'm not the biggest DOTA fan in the world, but I think they got it right with losing gold after you die. Because it actually gives your team a chance to shut someone down and catch up before they become a big problem.

  • Olucaron David W. Duffy (@Olucaron) reported from Levallois-Perret, Île-de-France

    @Kevin_Hitt It's the kind of list that contributes to the whole 'investors wanting to get into esports but haven't been given all the data' issue. It highlights Dota as 'wow, money' but looking past the freak TI pools you have a pro scene that is horrendously unstable.

  • bow_miguel Xian (@bow_miguel) reported

    please fix the slardar, the hero is ******* broke. @DOTA2

  • rogeriniall a. 🌼 (@rogeriniall) reported

    Dota Underlords needs to fix their player matching rules it ain’t fair for the new players to compete with higher level players 😪

  • tayramone TAYLOR RAMONE (@tayramone) reported

    Just tried to play Dota 2 on my Mac and realized I couldn't right click to move my character and panicked. Had to abandon game to fix. So embarrassing.

  • MattFrasche Matt Frazier (@MattFrasche) reported

    @d0nnykong Last word was they're working on a reworked version because of the flop around launch, and supposedly that's still in the works despite the existence of Dota Underlords. I think most of the problems were around launch and the half-ass progression couldn't save it.


    I get that tutorials and stuff would maybe help but the core of the problem is: Dota is incredibly hard and time consuming and we would still have people being dumpstered even with great guides in game.

  • RoadtoDrWalDO Waldo (@RoadtoDrWalDO) reported

    @Ge4Rcs @CSGO @DOTA2 Those are big caveats. We'll see how it all ends up, but the biggest issue is Valve's inaction and lack of involvement in CSGO compared to their favorite child.

  • omsign °msign (@omsign) reported

    @TheoWainhouse @SavantOfficial i stopped playing probably three years ago bc of the rage-inducing matchmaking. i just play WoW and warcraft 3 now, and get my dota fix there.

  • CarlosDaniel574 captainhandsome (@CarlosDaniel574) reported

    @Ifafawji @DOTA2 @DOTABUFF @redditdota2 Yeah, the curse for playing techies probably, i hope they’ll fix it asap

  • Ifafawji Floyd Panabe (@Ifafawji) reported

    @ThomasGuiblain @DOTA2 @DOTABUFF @redditdota2 Aww... Too bad you experienced that dude. Maybe they will fix that kind of bug in the next patch

  • yuurusai Yuu (@yuurusai) reported

    @BitchyAmi a lot of games have this problem now where devs are frankly bad at balance and you end up with shit like overwatch 2:2:2 queue instead of icefrogs 95 of the 117 heroes in dota being picked on day 1 of iternational qualifiers

  • sayandasgupta4 Cyanid3 (@sayandasgupta4) reported

    @DOTA2 And now if we could get them to fix the T2/3 scene we could almost be on the path to victory here xD

  • Donmanuon Emmanuel Chukwuka (@Donmanuon) reported

    @EdoFirstLady @Rene_noire Remind your dota this and fix it in her head.

  • GravityCats1 Gravity (@GravityCats1) reported

    @TobiWanDOTA @DOTA2 im sure that valve being so well funded can handle the influx of feedback and itll be cool to see how they fix some of this stuff here's hoping for the return of guilds too 😎

  • RobinHasACat 😼 (@RobinHasACat) reported

    one of the reason there are so many bunch of smurf, booster, cheater in dota2 is the lack of tier 2/3 tour with good prize pool distribution. so good player make money from selling those or offer the service 😉

  • 7Qua5AR Sudhanva Aghalayam (@7Qua5AR) reported

    @TobiWanDOTA @DOTA2 DDoS has been happening a lot lately. It's a sad situation.

  • AmirulApit amirul syafiq (@AmirulApit) reported from Seri Gading, Johor

    Dota 2 : the place where i go to forget all the problems and the reality and make me feel ease just like the paradise.

  • afcollin Andreas Collin (@afcollin) reported

    @abedyusop @DOTA2 Go play with friends or wait for mmr to be balanced out. Problem is that all top1000 pos 5 players are probably already in a stack. You need to wait for the new pos 5 players to make it through the system. After all, the system Will balance itself out. Just be patient.

  • BennyJParkinson Benny Parkinson (@BennyJParkinson) reported

    Just played a 52 min game and then someone on the losing team crashes the server after dc @DOTA2 fix your shit

  • eeeevvvveeeeee Eve~ (@eeeevvvveeeeee) reported

    @TobiWanDOTA @DOTA2 The only thing i dislike is that despite having the resources Valve refuses to invest into more manpower, which results in delays, low-quality events and more. Valve could open a separated game studio just for Dota with its own firm policy and a lot of issues could be fixed.

  • Mym_chaos 👿Chaos👿 💎🏃 (@Mym_chaos) reported

    @D2BOWIE True indeed. This MMR system is completely screwed up. Ancient 7 Guy picks troll offlane in my last game & fcking fed them like hell. Even Archon could beat him. SOLO queue is fcked up. Fix this Valve @DOTA2

  • BrandonLo5322 Brandonxoxo Gamdom (@BrandonLo5322) reported

    @EliGE @guardiancsgo Csgo gaming system is too bad compare to dota2 everyone is using third party to play csgo dota2 just using their own system if you think that doesn’t make any difference you are so wrong, valve seriously have to fix their game first instead of fixing pros prizes pool

  • monte_mclaws Monte (@monte_mclaws) reported

    @RiotSupport hey I started playing Dota 2 cause of your dogshit client that you’ve been promising to fix for months but haven’t and also your cancer player behavior system, cheers👍

  • RealPvtsam Saurabh Malviya (@RealPvtsam) reported

    @steam_games @DOTA2 Uninstalled dota 2 , because the mmr system is broken , the player conduct is broken . i will be back after you sort it out GABEN #Removecancerfromdota #badgamers

  • MrAwbery Mr Awbery (@MrAwbery) reported

    @HarperHype I definitely think skill gap is an issue, however I would argue that somebody who is Elite 1 would beat someone who’s gold 1 probably 98 times out of 100. I think the notion there is absolutely no skillgap is untrue. But ifs definitely smaller than say LoL or Dota for example.

  • Ky0_________ Ky0 🃏 22 years old as of today 🎉🎉 (@Ky0_________) reported

    @TejaFX Just tell them you only play dota 2. Problem solved

  • ayymartonTwitch Andy Martin (@ayymartonTwitch) reported

    Going live around 12:30 PM with some Dota Underlords and perhaps some Beat Hazard. Tech issues were fixed last night as well, so we should be good!

  • Duncan_Wardlaw Duncan Wardlaw (@Duncan_Wardlaw) reported

    @TobiWanDOTA @DOTA2 @SirActionSlacks It’s very straight forward. One is a lan and is much harder to move. The other is online qualifiers. Really hope they fix it, would be a huge loss to the scene to lose MM2

  • kgraff123456798 KGth3b3ast (@kgraff123456798) reported

    @lilharambe He's broken in DOTA right now js....

  • Dr_4gon Dr. 4gon (@Dr_4gon) reported

    @JJLiebig hey there, a friend has Issues with Dota2 since around the time of yesterdays update. The game lags and only gets around 30-40 fps. He tried turning the Settings all the way down, which only brought a little boost in performance. The game doesn't use the resources (1/2)

  • Nemacyte Craig (@Nemacyte) reported

    I have a single simple way of how to fix the Dota esports scene Go full Tennis and remove the TI qualifiers Having qualification be determined by how well you perform in a year is the only incentive for these ******* to actually play TI qualifiers is too much of a safety net

  • 9uman Nouman Saeed (@9uman) reported

    @DOTA2 plz fix it.

  • Kimbr3ll Kimbrell (@Kimbr3ll) reported

    So my PC is giving me problems. Constant FPS drops in Fortnite. Occasional drops in DotA2 and Overwatch. I've updated my drivers, changed graphic settings to lower, but it's still happening. No clue why.

  • DekoDrak Pincushion Zilla (@DekoDrak) reported

    @TankaaK Taurtoy! Im not exactly fond of taurs, but since I'm addicted to Dota, the Underlord character seems like something that could be nice floating on water. The problem with water worthy rides, they take so much floor area in buildings as opposite to standing 4 legged toys.

  • brainstormcasts Tim Dunne (@brainstormcasts) reported

    @jdude_tv problem is that as far as I know the Asian DOTA playerbase and audience is much larger than CS’s, which is potentially enough to warrant TI there. However I don’t have numbers to back this up so I’m spitballing

  • pete_thombo Peter Thomas (@pete_thombo) reported

    @DOTA2 all users of dotaplus from overwolf be aware i have just had match making restricted because of a third party program. Support have not been any help resolving this issue. Such a shame a really nice app and according to steamsupport page its vac free. @TheOverwolf
