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.

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.

Christiaan Lombard · 8 March 2014 - 12:14

Been waiting almost 30 minutes now to find a server in south africa. Dota is more concerned about adding more players to their servers than keeping the current players satisfied. In the mean time while I wait I would rather install Legue of Legends just so i may have a game

Alitostar Sa · 8 March 2014 - 11:55

I have the same problem. can't connect to game just get the black screen and leave game button

Muhammad Iqbal · 8 March 2014 - 08:11

Nathan Sumpter · 8 March 2014 - 05:10

i keeep getting timed out like every couple of minutes while in game. its making it unplayable anyone else having this?

Lee Jia Xiang · 8 March 2014 - 03:09

Edit (+1hour) : why isn't dota 2 doing anything about the server? It has been a few hours already

Marc Kenneth Louis Clarete · 8 March 2014 - 01:09

Jeff Zheng · 6 January 2014 - 18:11

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.

Kurt Lippmann · 6 January 2014 - 17:47

I think DOTA is either under a DDOS attack or it's having problems implementing a patch.

Billy Burns · 6 January 2014 - 17:15

wow they update it then bring it up justlogn enough to fin a match then disconnect you gg steam

Klaus Behrend · 6 January 2014 - 17:06

Ricard Helvid Adrian · 26 December 2013 - 05:50

Tomasz Zieniewicz · 26 December 2013 - 05:26

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...

Eduardo Mora · 26 December 2013 - 05:01

I restarted steam and somehow it works now. Might have been just a coincidence.

Vikash Khuman · 26 December 2013 - 04:48

Nishant Nair · 26 December 2013 - 04:36

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.

Armando Egam · 26 December 2013 - 04:00
