make sure the game is updated and make sure to start the game in steam.

I had this problem for a little while. are you trying to start the game from your taskbar? because my comp seemed to not connect to the dota 2 server when i did that.

Restart steam.

Also, I have heard that this is kinda of a telltale sign of piracy, as the cracks you use on steam games bypass steam and then generates that error when you try to play non cracked games via steam. :>
