I have been playing dota 2 for a long time now, and today when i logged on, i get consistent one or two second lag spikes with the occasional "invisible" animations or lack of sound. My internet seems to be fine when i check my ping and i tried lowering the game settings to see if that helped and it did not. Earlier today, i downloaded an update for NVidia Geforce as well as a windows update. So im not sure if any of that had an effect. I also tried to "verify the game cache" and that had no effect. I am lost on what to do now as it is very frustrating attempting to play in these conditions. Thank you!
