worked perfectly fine for months before this patch... seems like a lot of ppl have the same problem, but none of their posts got answered until now... quite lame from the developers

search your steam folder for DXSETUP file i found mine in my dota 2 folder if you don't find it download it from the internet just run it and u should be fine i still have to verify my game whilst it says the first time setup thing and it just starts without a problem hope this helps
