Dota 2 coordinator has been giving a hard time to players and Valve for more than 2 but less than 4 days straight.
Completing a match without having someone disconnecting multiple times has recently become something rather rare in the Dota 2 public matchmaking. But things have gone much worse lately. These days, players should consider themselves lucky if they find a match in the first place. Starting with June 17 the Dota 2 coordinator acted extremely unpredictable and has been mostly down for half of the day.
Besides the fact that it infuriates the casual players, who have flooded the Dota 2 rubreddit with complaints, the coordinator downtime also affects the current online competitions. It all started on June 17, when Team Liquid and Team Empire had to wait for more than an hour for the coordinator to be back online so they can resume their series at Beyond Epic.
During the waiting time Valve posted on Twitter that they are aware of the problem and that they are working on fixing it. The next day the issue repeated and surprisingly, the game developer, known for not being exactly the most communicative company, once again gave an update on the matter and apologized for the inconveniences caused by the coordinator. The problem was fixed, but not for a long time.
Today, June 19 the official Dota 2 twitter account was once again active as the coordinator became unstable for the third day in a row.
While Valve is investigating what causes the problems, most of the Dota 2 players are waiting for the TI10 Battle Pass Collector’s Cache to be released and hope that the wait for the Pudge Persona along with the Windranger Arcana won’t take too long.
