Hi I recently started playing Dota 2 and I've had an issue with items disappearing when I die. I played 2 games last night and for both games I noticed this occurring.
Basically I will buy items, get my courier to deliver it and before my courier gets to me if I die then when I respawn the items are missing. An example is last night I bought 2 items worth over 2000 gold, sent for the courier, died, and when I respawned my items were missing and the 2000 gold was also missing. The gold is definitely not missing due to the cost of respawning.
Is this meant to happen? I've talked to more experienced players and looked at online material but I can't find anything related. I thought the items should be returned to you when you respawn and that's why quick buying right before dying is useful but this is making that unfeasible. It got to the point where getting items delivered by courier was too risky if it was an expensive item.
Thanks for your help!
