    Hi playdota, first thread here, wanna try to make it useful.
    How to play dota2 offline?
    What do you need for it?
    Steam and any version of dota2.
    How to play?
    First of all start offline mode at steam.
    Open launch options and enter this commands:
    -console (adds console)
    -novid (no intro, bold guy from valve)
    -nod3d9ex (game runs at directx9)
    -windowed -w xxx -h xxx (this is ONLY if resolution is bad, where xxx are desireble width and height)
    -noborder (no border on window)

    Now start the game. Console appears over the "connecting to dota2 network". If it didnt appear then open it "`". Type this:
    dota_start_ai_game 1
    sv_lan 1
    sv_cheats 1
    dota_bot_set_difficulty 0/1/2/3 depends of skill level you want.
    Map dota.
    After map dota command game begins. Just wait a bit.
    Hope it helps. Sorry for bad english, not my native language.
    Ps. if you cant join radiant or dire just write in console jointeam good or bad

    You can play offline with bots, the LAN option isn't already implemented.

    There is a shadowed button for LAN in Dota 2. Just wait and Valve will implement it.

    Why would you play offline?

    Too poor to have an internet connection in the 21st century?

    By playing Dota 2 offline, how do I supposed to choose heroes? Is there like ANY special command or something to choose heroes, or is it like the normal Dota 2 online? *Sorry for my bad English...

    And when someone creates a new thread you will tell them to use search function then they will eventually post on that thread which will cause necro again.

    Restart Steam. Open Dota 2 again and it's fixed.
