    as you can see, special characters are not showing and instead replaced with those damn boxes in-game. happened in dota 2 as well, albeit partially (special characters are visible in a font type but not the others).
    but of course, lenny face is visible!

    happened today after I "tried" to reinstall steam.
    so you know that thing where to "reinstall" steam, you have to delete everything in steam except for steam.exe and steamapps folder? well I accidentally deleted steam.exe too so I had to download steaminstaller.msi from steam website.

    Change your Operating System locale to Japanese.
    Your current locale doesn't support Japanese / Korean / Russian scribbles.
    Or if it at one point did, it has now lost them.

    Server is Australian and the title is basically just a long box.

    Edit: Some people said restart your PC or restart Steam. Try both ^-^
