Everytime I try to open dota it gives me error message, "searching for dota 2 game coordinator". And after that it says, "Connected to dota 2 Game coordinator; loggin in". But I am not able to do anything in dota.

I tried restarting dota 2 several times and also tried steam restart but nothing is helping here.

The Dota 2 game coordinator is down. There's nothing you can do other than wait.

    Although OP mentions they did this, sometimes a simply restart dota / steam can fix it (or at least gives enough time for the coordinator to come back up) so I see both as options. Once done, there's nothing to do but wait.

In future, you can check the this unofficial status page to see if the problem is on your end or on the server side.

For example, right now it is having server issues and is down.
