WARNING: STEAM validation rejected (after update)
After I updated (the recent 2GB file update), I keep getting this warning after I click ACCEPT on Finding Match. It just loads and then this message pops up:

WARNING
Disconnected from Server
STEAM validation rejected

I have been doing a research about this problem but none of the solutions fixed it. Then I tried logging in my friend's acct and the game went through. So there is definitely a problem during the update using my account.

I also heard I'm not the only one who has this problem. So I hope this will get fixed ASAP or if ever someone has the same problem and found a solution to it, please HELP!

Hey guys! and all future guys out there having this issue with the
"WARNING
Disconnected from Server
STEAM validation rejected" message

go to Options/Game/Network

put the network quality from high to low. It solves the issue! Enjoy Dota2 fellas!

for some reason, i looked back at my settings and its back to all max, so i changed it back to the settings i'm using before and it now works. i didn't even change the Network Quality, i just adjusted the video settings.
