DOTA 2 down reports have spiked today, with players of Valve Software’s hugely popular multiplayer battle arena game being greeted with Steam server problems.
Independent outage monitor Down Detector has seen an increase in DOTA 2 down reports while players on Twitter have reported receiving a game coordinator error.
Down Detector stats say the vast majority of those affected by today’s reported DOTA 2 issues have been hit with server connection problems.
While the Down Detector outage map says the DOTA 2 problems are mainly affecting players in the UK, Europe, Malaysia, Thailand and parts of the US.
As the DOTA 2 server issues hit players took to social networking site Twitter to report problems with the game.
One tweeted: “Server down Dota 2”.
While another posted: “Dota 2 server keep going down.”
And one added: “Dota server down”.
The latest DOTA 2 online issues come a few days after server problems hit the same day of the International Battle Pass launch.
Here are more details on some of the big features of the DOTA 2 International Battle Pass…
DOTA 2 BATTLE PASS FEATURES
There’s nothing more satisfying than smashing an Ancient with a great group of friends, and then doing the same thing again and again. With the introduction of Guilds, you can join a community of like-minded players to ensure that you always have the right team at your back on that road to victory. Work together to level up your guild and you’ll also earn rewards for yourself and fellow members.
Anyone can join a guild, but only Battle Pass owners can create them.
Claim a Contract from a pool of daily objectives. Complete the objective and hang on for victory, and you’ll be in line for an infusion of Guild Points for your mates and Battle Points for yourself.
Each week your guild will have four challenges available, each unlocked upon completion of another—along with Guild Points and Sideshop Gold. Party up with 3+ guildmates in order to have your progress count.
SKIN IN THE GAME
Once you’re in a guild, every match you play will earn Guild Points. Party with your guildmates and queue for games to earn even more. No matter which way you play, you’ll be helping your guild.
As you grow your guild, it’s only fitting that your accolades increase to match. Increase your Guild Level by participating in activities, either alone or with your guildmates. You can earn points by completing Contracts and Challenges, and unlock collective rewards like emoticons, bonus challenges, in-game Guild Banner upgrades, Battle Pass bonuses, and more.
A SPECIAL SUMMER EVENT – COMING SOON
This summer, a mysterious power arrives to disrupt the war of the Ancients, and no one—god, mortal, or monster alike—can resist its terrifying pull. Step away from the battlefield and into a labyrinth of trials and horrors. The one to master it all… could be you.
THE LABYRINTH AWAITS
Wade into a four-player maze of madness and mayhem—exploring with friends or queue-met allies—to uncover a mystery long lost within the fog of this great war.
CHOICES OF LIFE OR DEATH
Work as a team to choose your path. Behind every door awaits a new surprise, and no two adventures will go the same. Those who prove worthy can unlock an even greater challenge—and of course a commensurate reward.
BATTLE PASS BLESSINGS
Any Dota players who want to try their hand are welcome to join the fray while this special event is active, and Battle Pass owners will receive special rewards for their play.
