DOTA 2 Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • RamixTheRed Ramix (@RamixTheRed) reported

    @seinfeldmpreg I guess thinking about it my issue with Death of the Author is less "separating art from the artist" and more "DotA means I can say this story is about whatever ******** I want and if you disagree you're a bigot" so Death of the Author can have a little rights. As a treat.

  • NoiSinEss 🏴‍☠️ (@NoiSinEss) reported

    Dota is broken, so I am going to just chill for the day before work.

  • bijak_Er10 Bijak R. Ahadito (@bijak_Er10) reported

    Don't know why, but @Dota2 keep crashing on my @HP Omen 15 2017 for the last 2 weeks. Not sure if this is @nvidia's driver problem, or @windowsinsider's update messed something up, or the laptop itself have some thermal issues.

  • MagdaleneAQW xoxo, Winxologia🏳️‍⚧ (@MagdaleneAQW) reported

    Me being a beginner Invoker in DoTA2, Aphelios is Broken and Clunky at the same time.

  • theshawwn Shawn Presser (@theshawwn) reported

    Obviously, this could be due to the name. "Byte" isn't exactly the most unique thing. But I think Dota Underlords had the same issue on launch day. Not sure there's anything to be done. Apple isn't exactly incentivized to fix it.

  • GeraltVEVO PhD in Jaskier studies (@GeraltVEVO) reported

    @greyb0t009 I don't play og dota, but dota2. Just cba to write the number lmao The biggest issue was that I was talking to a nine year old girl and like... I am not a fan of kids to say the least

  • Shaltil Shalti (@Shaltil) reported

    @Charalanahzard @UnlimitedBitsG I mean, a couple years ago the very concept of f2p / games as a service was reviled Now they still (mostly) are, but things like Warframe, Path of Exile, League of Legends / DotA2, Fortnite, etc, have shown that the model can work pretty damn well if executed properly

  • bonnasib bon (@bonnasib) reported

    most people are knowledgable about dota but can't play very well that why so many ppl talk shit in dota, they think they know so well therapist or expert think they so knowledgable but still can't fix mental ill or addiction so close yet so far

  • daffarakak daffaaaaaaa (@daffarakak) reported

    Dota game broken bgst

  • yrusso Yuri (@yrusso) reported

    @DOTA2 this is nonsense... you don't fix neither matchmaking, nor calibration, nor smurfing, nor boosting, but you do try to get money from the player base. At least fake you are doing something...

  • Dualmonkey Dualmonkey (@Dualmonkey) reported

    Please remove neutral items @IceFrog @DOTA2 Too many items create random unfair power spikes and swings. Some are downright broken with certain heroes and some are entirely useless at times. If you insist on keeping any neut items then have Talon, *** and keen optic only.

  • BrymanScribbles Bryman (@BrymanScribbles) reported

    so just realized tonight how broken dota is while also figuring out why and how. since realizing this ill be switching to league and giving that a try since it seems more welcoming and overall generally works. only ppl left on dota are old washed up has beens who never made it

  • NhW_Kuran Ross (@NhW_Kuran) reported

    @Moses_FPS There is always a few exceptions, but the largest problem is when the player base is segregated by the dev, like csgo/dota/halo etc where competitive settings are different from mainstream, reach was an example of worst case where everything about Comp and casual were different

  • MarkPrailes 𝓜𝓪𝓻𝓴 𝓟𝓻𝓪𝓲𝓵𝓮𝓼 (@MarkPrailes) reported

    playing dota2 wtf its so lag.🤬

  • ctcyx00 Djian (@ctcyx00) reported

    @DOTA2 The matchmaking is so ******* bad. It rotates with 2 issues.. u stuck with smurfs or stuck with a bunch of retards

  • DarkHades1234 Siraphob (@DarkHades1234) reported

    @AzfarRazaKhan1 @FionnOnFire @SumaaaaiL Sumail is a great player but no one in dota2 scene even comes close to Topson's storyline for his debut (joining the broken team with rank dead last with even pros belittle him to play TI like a pub + being an undefeated underdog team during the main stage to boot).

  • AskJoshy Joshy @ Runeterra (@AskJoshy) reported

    Valve not delivering on Dota 2 prizing is news to me, definitely worth a read. #esports More broken promises 😞

  • aleksixdd Aleksi Kouhia (@aleksixdd) reported

    @pcgamer Dota 2. Otherwise I would have broken my room to pieces.

  • experimilk Perry! (@experimilk) reported

    @adapt09 @ATLFunkyP There is no league of legends 2, there is no Dota 3, there is no shadowverse 2. These are products that were developed to be played in perpetuity, games as a service updated constantly, which is where the esports actually happens.

  • scantzor Anthony Hodgson (@scantzor) reported

    @TheWonderCow I agree that one problem is that the dota community just doesn't like to read. I don't agree that paying writers well is all about getting a direct return from eyeballs. I think there's good reasons for companies to invest in quality content for branding purposes.

  • voronofdima Дмитрий Воронов (@voronofdima) reported

    @IceFrog please @valvesoftware please fix dota2 shit 5tier items.

  • XsDota DotaXS (@XsDota) reported

  • bonnasib bon (@bonnasib) reported

    - most people are knowledgable about dota but can't play dota very well - that why so many ppl talk shit, they think they know so well - therapist or expert think they so knowledgable but still can't fix mental ill or addiction - so close yet so far

  • natervader13 Nate the Great (@natervader13) reported

  • Im_Fortitude TypoKing Fortitude (@Im_Fortitude) reported

    just got home from work and found out an issue with my download so looks like the only horror tonight will be either ny FN gameplay... or dota

  • aetherlift 🌸hazel🌸 (@aetherlift) reported

    they wouldnt be as frustrating if i hadnt played dota i think... but i have played dota. it turns out that dota's "backdoor protection" system just completely solves this problem, and so late-game dota is way more interesting. i have no idea why its not implemented in league

  • Bluesapphire04 Michael Go (@Bluesapphire04) reported

    Solving programming issues is like winning a 2 hour long dota game. You're satisfied for the next 10 minutes and then feel the exhaustion for the rest of the day.

  • JamzyF34 J (@JamzyF34) reported

    @DOTA2 connection issues as of now. Please fix.

  • Kipspul Muriëlle 'Kips' Huisman (@Kipspul) reported

    Please, @DOTA2, fix something before the shit hits the fan for once. We've been so lucky to not see it turn big games yet.

  • CorruptDropbear Dropbear | Mitchel (@CorruptDropbear) reported

    I will now be referring to @teamnigma as either ex-Liquid/Kuroky Stack or Team Neith until they officially change their name, and I encourage everyone to do the same. Hopefully Valve steps in before we start having major issues. #Dota2 #Dreamleague

    @valvesoftware Why is DotA vr still broken

  • z_Lunars Lunar (@z_Lunars) reported

    @KS_Katalyst @CooperPR6S @BKN_R6 Well esports titles wont last forever. R6 esports the way it's going right now wont be here 4-5 years from now and that's the truth. So if they wanna become a top tier esport just like OW, Fortnite, LoL, csgo, dota, etc., they needed to fix these major problems years ago.But 2020

  • anshulsamarwal2 Anshul Samarwal (@anshulsamarwal2) reported

    @DOTA2 Fix your reporting system, new players keep being falsely reported by players who are toxic and dont obey they rules.

    @Prinny4Smash @Lorekeeper_GGuy @Raybrandt4Smash > Crash mii costume for Tracer fighter >Heavy and Gordon mii costumes for Dota fighter It scares me

  • PatrickDane Patrick Dane (@PatrickDane) reported

    I feel every game-as-a-service player base right now is pretty down on their game. Destiny, Apex, WoW, Magic the Gathering Arena, Overwatch. Granted I'm not playing Fortnite, Dota 2 or LoL at the moment, but just feels hardcore fanbases are frustrated no matter where you look.

  • ameilsheridan 6 (@ameilsheridan) reported

    Stupid valve and their unsettling smurf problem in game @valvesoftware @DOTA2

  • mossiee_ mossiee!! (@mossiee_) reported

    Dota Ranked will never be fixed or good enough for top 500+ players ever again. Don’t know why people are still making suggestions and complaints. It’s a playerbase issue.

  • MSTRMN_ George (@MSTRMN_) reported

    @thexpaw Valve's software is coming apart apparently. Dota 2 server problems (people disconnecting randomly), Steam issues now...

  • morhafation morhaf al-kuku (@morhafation) reported

    @virtuspro U guys always have problems with the draft . Dp is a dead hero so out of meta . Even necro in this patch has more effect . The real problem in this patch is that the meta is so limited and so much heroes are not that effective . The whole dota now is PL . slark . Drow . boooring

  • konsetsfire R-Tard (@konsetsfire) reported

    Its too funny to see those retard valve admins that DO NOT understand why dota2 is a dead game,trying to fix their pathetic MM making it worst everytime.i wonder if u get payed for ur job or you pay them to keep you in the corp. #dota2 #valve @DOTA2 @dota2updates

  • _Gorgonzolla Gorgonzolla (@_Gorgonzolla) reported

    @KedarOthortKO @Wraithyn1 @CakemanB @Inbowned i said everything in game as a way to say that its rare if you play a game and you don't encounter a glitch or a bug. talking about the UI everything feels like its poorly drawn and doesn't feel reactive, i suggest you try like, dota2 or league and notice the smoothness

  • JenJen20199 Jen Cox (@JenJen20199) reported from Barrie, Ontario

    Unfortunately I won’t be able to play DOTA 2 anytime soon... it’s not working

  • iaguzSC2 Ethan Zugai (@iaguzSC2) reported

    The problem with playing SEA server dota is that I need to learn how to say "just keep pinging my abilities, it makes me play better" in like 15 languages and I'm not prepared to do that.

  • Arif_LJ23 LoLLyWags (@Arif_LJ23) reported

    @iFireMonkey I was playing Dota2 back in the days and my pc was broken. And i started to play fortnite on ps4

  • OwOThings OwO (@OwOThings) reported

    @RiotSupport Why u simply don't make an "All in one" client like Dota2, the start of the game would be 10 times faster and all the problems would be solved. PLEASE, WE WANT PLAY.
