Question: Dota 2 keeps crashing

I have had this game installed on my 2017 MacBook Pro for about a year, no problems, then all of a sudden the last few days it keeps crashing... I am trying to read the crash report but it is a foreign language to me. Anyone here good at deciphering it? I tried uploading the whole crash report but it said it had invalid characters.
