[Solved] HOW TO: Play DOTA 2 in Offline Mode ( Without Internet )

Dota 2 is a 2013 multiplayer online/offline battle arena video-strategic game and a stand-alone sequel to the Defense of the Ancients( DOTA) in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne map.

Dota 2 is primarily multi-played with a fast and stable internet connection, yet there are a lot of people want to play it offline — bandwidth and slow internet connection issues. Hence, it is preferable to choose to play offline.

Note: Before playing an offline game, the user needs to log in at least ONCE in the steam to set it to Offline Mode.

Because carry is life, but Support is LIFER :D

  • After installing the game DOTA 2, open the Steam Client and log in your account.
  • Under the Steam menu, click Go Offline. On the next launch, it will not require you to log in and will be automatically played.

  • Right-click Dota 2 located right side of the steam GUI. 




  • Under Properties click Set Launch Options. Type -console (when you run Dota 2, it will show console window first. Yet you can press ~ or ` for that to show)

    • Launch Options primarily for advanced users
      • -console   // if you are familiar with counter-strike then it's a great window for commands and settings
      • Additional:

    Bonus: If you want your friends or someone on your LAN network to join the game without connecting the Internet (played in Offline mode)

    Just Follow the steps here.

    Requirements:
    • Clients (those who want to join and connect the server)
    • Server (one who creates the game)
    1. [ SERVER SIDE ]
    • Note: It is MUST in OFFLINE mode. 
    • In the console, type the following commands:
      • sv_lan 1
      • sv_cheats 1
      • dota_bot_set_difficulty 4
      • dota_force_gamemode 1 
      •  jointeam good/bad 
    • The following will be useful to the client
      • hostip // When you hit it, it will display the PC's IP ADDRESS. Click Start Windows, in the RUN, type, and open CMD, and type ipconfig /all to get the IP address. Example: 192.168.1.40. This will be used by the client side to connect the server.
      • hostport //you can see its port, needed for the client to connect. hostport typically 27015 but you can change it, though. Now for the example, we will just use: 27015
    Additionally:
    • If the users want to change or join the team, he/she will use jointeam
      • jointeam good // Radiant team
      • jointeam bad //Dire team
      • jointeam spec //be a spectator

    2. [ CLIENT ]
    • In the console, type the following format: connect {ip}:{port}
    • Sample: connect 192.168.1.40:27015
    •  jointeam good/bad 
    If it does not connect to the server, try to off the firewall or your antivirus.

    3. [ Server ] And then the server will type the commands:
    • dota_start_ai_game 1
    • dota_bot_populate 
    • map dota.bsp
    The dota_bot_populate command fills empty slots  with bots

    Enjoy! :)

    Here's a quick summary of commands:

    [server]
    • sv_lan 1
    • sv_cheats 1
    • dota_bot_set_difficulty 4
    • dota_force_gamemode 1 
    •  jointeam good/bad 
    [client(s)] 
    • connect IP:PORT
    • jointeam good/bad 
    [server]
    • dota_start_ai_game 1
    • map dota.bsp
    • dota_bot_populate
