Since 17th June, Dota 2 players across the globe have been experiencing issues with the Game Coordinator, due to a sudden, extreme load surge hitting Valve's servers. While Valve is still investigating the source of what happened, the developer has decided to extend the Dota 2 Battle Pass end date.
Dota 2 Battle Pass end date
Valve has revealed the Dota 2 Battle Pass will now end one week later than originally planned.
In today's update we will be extending the Battle Pass end date by a week, from Sep 12 to Sep 19. We have also made a few improvements to the Game Coordinator today, and will continue to investigate some more clues related to the extreme load surge that happened at 4AM Seattle.— DOTA 2 (@DOTA2) June 19, 2020
The extension means the Dota 2 Battle Pass end date is now 19th September 2020.
This extension of the Dota 2 Battle Pass end date is likely due to the Game Coordinator issues. Players couldn't log in to complete challenges, earn rewards, and even play against others.
Dota 2 Game Coordinator issues
For three days now, Dota 2 Game Coordinator issues have been plaguing Valve, and fans of the ever-popular MOBA.
While Valve's statement regarding the Game Coordinator issues, which revealed an "extreme load surge" as the cause does point towards a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, the developer has not confirmed an attack.
Some players are still experiencing Dota 2 Game Coordinator issues, despite Valve's efforts to improve performance.
It remains to be seen if a group will take responsibility for the issues, or if it even is a DDoS attack.
