The console command dota_force_gamemode 2 used to work for playing Dota 2 in Captain's Mode, but in Dota 2 Reborn the same fails and the game runs in the default mode (All Pick).

  • Has the command changed for Reborn? If yes, what's the updated one for Reborn?
  • Or the Captain's Mode is currently frozen from being triggered via Console (in Beta)?

Am running the game with the following ProcParams: bin/win32/dota2.exe -steam -novid -console +dota_wait_for_players_to_load 1 +dota_force_gamemode 2

  • How are you entering a game? Are you creating a custom lobby, or queueing for a public game? – user86277 Feb 11 '16 at 19:13
  • Game mode Value is wrong. – Rishabh Sharma Feb 27 '16 at 11:56

The console command you are using is for all pick game mode.dota_force_gamemode 2 . If you want to play captain's mode change the value 2 to 4. Your console command should look like dota_force_gamemode 4.

    2       All Pick
    4       Captain's mode
    8       Random Draft
    16      Single Draft

For more information regarding console commands try Game Modes

  • @ Rishabh Sharma : I tried the aforementioned modes but the game starts in All Pick. I believe it is the rev emulator I am using. – CᴴᴀZ Mar 6 '16 at 8:06
