Game does not respond to keyboard and mouse input

47820, Steam, Windows 10

So upon entering a ranked game today, I switched keyboard input method (from Chinese to English) and then the game does not respond to my key presses and clicks. This happened to me twice already in ranked games. And a lot of times in mod manager, all after I switched input language.

To reproduce this bug, try to type Chinese with Microsoft Pinyin in game (chat or mod manager, etc.). You will surely catch it with enough tries.

Note that this bug makes chatting in-game using Chinese impossible.

This bug probably existed since launch. But because it mainly affects players who need to switch input methods, it is not getting enough attention. I’m attaching another post from Chinese player community. You could easily understand it with Google translation.

Come on devs… This happens to me again today. Ranked game, insta resign… It’s a disaster if we forgot to switch input language before entering a game. @ChristheCo @StepS7578 @GMEvangelos
