It's a common problem when you ingest alcohol before playing DotA. The solution? More alcohol.

There should be a slider in your video options, turn it up to 100% and it removes the blur.

edit: It's called "Render Quality"

This was one of the patches that rever your graphics settings to medium. If you are used to play on high, it might seem strange to you. As suggested by yatterwan, just set them up to high again.

Tested and confirmed: set the Render level setting to maximum and the problem will be gone.

I take that back, everytime I set the render quality bar to 100% it always goes back down to like 80% at the start of the next game.

Stupid question, but did you click on "apply"?

Hmm... try to start the game and then (still ingame) change the settings.
I'm just guessing, I don't have any clue whatsoever, as this never happened to me.

It did this to me too. I would move render quality up to 100% and by the time I exited the options to go back in game, it would move back down to 80%. It eventually stopped on its own but idk why. It just took some repetition.

You have to restart DotA 2 if you change the advanced settings.

There is a big white note in the menu saying that.

isn't your resolution too low?

when you don't use the monitor's "default" resolution, it tends to blur the display, due to all the stretching.

No, the blur is based on the render quality in his situation.

So the blur applies itself based on my PC specs? Or my PC performance?
This problem accoured to me today, when i tried to steam dota 2. Before the stream, the game did not have any blur, but once i started steaming, it got really blurry.

If you can't see some textures (the heroes are purple etc) than go to library - right click on dota 2 - properties - local files - verify integrity of local game cache.

It will finish and if files are missing (probably) it will redownload them.

No, there isn't. The only setting that requires you to restart DotA 2 with respect to advanced settings is ambient creatures. If you look closer, only the settings with the symbol "*" require the reset.

It's not your computer, it's DotA 2. When you start streaming, check your render quality. For some reason, it keeps resetting to 80% for quite a few people.
