Can't Access Dota 2 - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

I wish they would share planned patches/maintenance on their website or something. Each patch feels like it's a last minute decision, when after a game you just randomly get d/c'd then need to update. :(

Dear steam,
I understand that you care not for your customer base,
I understand that you are sitting at your router unplugging the power cord and laughing
I even understand that maintenance is a synonym for laughter with yall.
BUT a little forwarning would be nice.... Maybe a little message that says hey.. were gonna be bringing servers down for about an hour or two while we work on them.
That way it doesn't turn 12:01 on my birthday and I swallow 3 cups of coffee to zoom through a few games only to realize that... well you can't spell DOuche without U.

Valve should contact a professional team to track down those who ddos them and make an arrest. put them in jail for good. Before arresting, it was fun to ddos servers, after they are in jail, we hope these people are having fun too.

Dota 2 network down for 4 min in game menu, somehow connects but the find game button does not respond, mark more server search options, still nothing. Try to check my dota profile, failed to retrieve dota 2 profile but the game search begins (already with a 3 min search done) with the Russia, US and Australia server marked (the f#!k?!). Volvo cannot into dota today...

make a shortcut to steam at desktop select the shorcuts properties and add "-tcp" to the end it will connect you to steam but be sure to remove the se asia and affrican servers.

Cholo Louie Espiritu · 26 December 2013 - 03:05

Even if you fix the "Searching the network for Dota 2", you still can't play. Even when creating and playing a bot game using 'Lobbies' it'll still "Find Server" for infinity.

Conclusion... SEA is still down. >.

It's been more than 12 hrs now... Still, nothing happens when you click on find match... pathetic...

I tried the solution down here.., It works, and it finds match, but it either takes a LONG fricking time or when it found a match.., it says "Finding Server" like forever.. !

HAHAHA.. long holiday for x-mas one employees (IT programmer) stay in office.. next year 2014 steam will be normal again..

Abu Laila · 25 December 2013 - 13:24

about the the Jerk @Derek Woodward : since 2003 dota is a free game - can you say something new?? - ice frog first condition to move to valve is "free game" or he wont buy it to move on... so stfu and we have the more right to keep Complaining about the retardations happens Frequently in these bullshits updates !!! F*ck steam!

Reid Blomquist · 25 December 2013 - 13:20

I don't understand how you can all complain about a free game so much... Steam wants your money? lol wut?! DOTA2 is free! Free servers are always sketchy - get used to it.

Alexander Thomas · 25 December 2013 - 13:13

servers are usually slow, go offline a lot and it's just a pain in the arse. Steam is like apple, they don't bother about support or upgrades they just want your money

Giome Pool Guy · 25 December 2013 - 13:00

No maintenance, servers are cheap old and shit. All kis play dota 2 now cuz xmas, Valve failing harrrrrd, might as well just play LoL or enjoy buggy BF4

Michael Harrison · 25 December 2013 - 12:59

what happen to my battle xp and my item drop valve... network is dead... really pissed off right now.

Joshua Cariño · 25 December 2013 - 12:49

SE is still down. But still able to find match when using VPN, can play though. But thing is theres no stats, or no battle points earned. so really crap, non sense, just like playing with a bot since theres no change is game progress then.

Alii RO SH · 25 December 2013 - 10:03

my facts are right ! 6.5 million online (STEAM), i dont care about dota2 only. steam as a whole is responsible for all the servers bla bla bla ... :) not too smart now huh

Brian Ting · 25 December 2013 - 09:02

get your facts right! Its only 480k players online not 6.5mil...

Alii RO SH · 25 December 2013 - 08:55

Russel Alexander · 14 December 2013 - 07:58

Whats sad is DOTA is following in EA's footsteps. pretty soon we'll be seeing the likes of 1GB updates like BF4. patch after patch after patch. i ask you, is it worth playing any longer? This is where i take my hat off to the likes of Blizzard and co. Do it right first time round, and keep your followers coming back for more. simple, like browsers, this one doesnt work, i move on to the next.

Thanks Dota for consistently messing your updates up. someone in your dev team are not dotting their I's and crossing their T's....

Freddie Le Roux · 14 December 2013 - 07:34

Li Jingxiang · 13 December 2013 - 19:47

Valve please stop adding trash like gems and sockets and trading cards just to squeeze the last dollar out of customers when your servers cant even support it. We will pay for a game that WE CAN ACTUALLY PLAY.

Giome Pool Guy · 13 December 2013 - 09:43

I think they just dont want to upgrade their DOTA2 servers, and thus having "maintenance" every friday and saturday.

Go and play League of Legends instead guys, im having fun while your fanboy asses are smashing the Find server button hahaha

Luke Hurst · 13 December 2013 - 09:12

I think you'll find this is for the website, not for the game servers, which are STILL down. Please fix this dota...

Radu Rebeja · 13 December 2013 - 08:13

Stop pushing their servers f#!ktards... Just wait for god sake. If you're going to enter dota 2 and search for games coniously, you will make it worse...

Tomi Halsvaha · 13 December 2013 - 08:09

Wtf connects to dota network then shuts down and connects again in an infinite loop. Cant find a single game no matter how long i wait. 1 More game to remove from my pc hence valve dont give a shit does theyr crap work or not.

Oh and not to forget the kewl precent i got that cant be opened. I click on the box it goes 3 2 1 puuuf nothing happends. Cant valve realy test theyr updates before lauching them for public.

Matthew Jonathan Selvaraj · 13 December 2013 - 07:58

This should not happen. Valve really f#!ked up the moment. This is weekend and i cant spend my useless life to play dota whole night. Darn you valve.

Cody Iverson · 13 December 2013 - 07:45

Down for all servers worldwide. they really need to make there servers work with a situation like this where every user is getting on at almost the same time.

Uros Vanguard · 13 December 2013 - 06:16

ok guys I think it's been a little bit to much, this is hapening often, I play this game maybe for 8 months, now I think it's time to delete this piece of shit, and feel a relief after all those matches you had a feeder with 0 14 0 KDA. Like I did half an hour ago, just delete dota 2 client and go play something better rewarding and satisfying, dota 2 will not reward you well even after 300 wins, there will always be idiots aroun in comunity, that click 2 buttons and think they are pro.

Edit: they cant handle the servers the population of gamers on dota 2, they dont deserve this throne and cash people are giving them, they just dont deserve it, f#!king valve.

Giome Pool Guy · 13 December 2013 - 05:17

Oh, yay!! NEW UPDATE!! That means no DOTA2 for the weekend because why test our shit first... go ask EA, they might give you some pointers how to run servers.

Brian Lee · 13 December 2013 - 05:16

Can't connect to a game at the moment at all (Aus server). Playing against bots with 2 people and running at 400 ping.

This is getting extremely frustrating, I keep on connecting and then disconnecting over and over again, and it is getting on my nerves. VOLVO please buff, the damn server!

Mandar Powale · 30 November 2013 - 10:11

yup, it is down now in mumbai, india. atleast for me. I played for about 4-5 games today with no issues since 1300 hrs to about half an hour before now.

Giome Pool Guy · 30 November 2013 - 10:03

Valve are too busy adjusting Pudges appearance and changing Low priority system, unplayable game and gay ass servers are below them.
