Dota 2 - Network/Connectivity Issues

I am unable to connect to the Dota 2 network, experiencing network lag in-game, or losing my connection to the Dota 2 servers while playing. What can I do?

Dota 2 server downtime

Periodically, the Dota 2 servers may need to be brought down temporarily for maintenance or updates. You do not need to report downtime during such outages.


Troubleshooting connectivity

If you are getting disconnected from Dota 2 across multiple games or with any regularity, this points to an issue with your connection to the Dota 2 or Steam network.

We suggest that you Troubleshoot your Network's connectivity with Steam, and remove any Programs that may interfere with Steam from your computer.

If other players in your region are experiencing this issue, ensure that you report it to the Dota 2 Development Forums.
