Dota 2 South Africa - Local Servers News Update

Main Image.jpg

We’ve had a lot of players asking about the slow local matchmaking after the latest update went live. First and foremost, we would like to thank you for your patience while the issue is being resolved. Here is why matchmaking on the South African Dota 2 servers is taking a very long time at the moment. No, it’s not the Goblin Techies blowing stuff up.

As most of you know, MWEB hosts the hardware and provides the bandwidth for the South African Dota 2 servers. (Internet Solutions also hosts local Dota 2 servers and the same bug effects their servers as well). The error has nothing to do with MWEB's side of things, as we have to wait on Valve for a fix to the issue.  The latest Dota 2 update introduced a bug, which causes the servers to not respawn properly after a match (which needs to happen so that new matches can start).

My colleague Ryno “SonZ” Warwick explains:

“We have to manually clean up the servers to keep capacity up. I only now got a response from Valve after weeks of mailing asking for answers.”

We will update this article as soon as we have more information on the servers. The long matchmaking queues will be fixed as soon as possible.  While you wait for the matchmaking queue to pop, you can read some of my Dota 2 local experience articles below.

Apart from the long matchmaking queues, how has your experience been on the Dota 2 local servers after the latest patch? Let us know in the comment section below.
