If you're looking to get your fix of Dota 2 or CS:GO after school or work today, you might just be out of luck. For the most part of this fine Back to the future appreciation day, the CS:GO and Dota 2 servers have been completely dysfunctional down under, not allowing for local matchmaking in either game.

While the Dota 2 client states that the servers are "offline for maintenence," there was no official warning set by Valve for this occurrence, with gamers taking to Reddit in order to voice their concerns and frustration. In addition to this, the official Dota 2 blog has nothing either.

As far as CS:GO is concerned, the 'CSGO_dev' Twitter is completely quiet, with its last Tweet being way back on August 24.

What is happening Valve? I'm really keen to play some Dota 2!
