The lobby of Dota2 is one big pile of vomit, i always see someone get flamed or extremely sick comments. I rarely participate in the chat but whenever i do feel the need of saying something in the chat my mother pretty much gets the hot topic award. Racism, extremely harsh language, flaming, bullying they are going on 24/7 in the lobby of Dota 2. I have seen chat boxes close for less, a lot less.

Whenever i feel bored waiting for a game i put people on ignore but this does not seem to help at all. Is there any way i can report people so proper action can be taken against them?

  • i do not really understand your situation. are you using the chatrooms on the right side or are you talking about actual lobbies? In both cases i would recommend leaving the chat/lobby and joining another. Is that no option?

  • @wandang Im talking about the chat inside the lobby. I have tried several public chats all pretty much the same. Of course joining an empty channel fixes this. But these trolling idiots should not have a free platform for harassing people.

  • @Wandang That is very poor of valve, isn't it manitory to monitor behaviour of users on your network? I mean there are a lot of kids on it and the stuff i read there shocks even me sometimes.

  • You should go to dev.dota2.com and post your suggestion there. I agree that pure hatred should not be tolerated but it is no high priority for valve right now. If there are severe cases you can always report a player via steam community: support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=1476-HJCM-5616

I searched for this previously, and no, there is no way to report them at the moment. I do hope this feature will be implemented soon.


Sadly you cannot report people who abuse in the lobby. But you can ignore them by clicking their name and choose "Ignore Player".

This is a great idea you should post your idea/suggestions at http://dev.dota2.com/. Though I think they will most likely not implement this before every other things is settled.
