Is Dota 2 down? How to check for Server Status

Stay in your lane servers.

Dota 2 is a competitive game that gets my adrenaline going, especially during a long and intense match.

Nothing makes me more upset than dropping a game due to server issues, so I like to check the Dota 2 server status before launching the game.
