  • Bots pick one person, then focus on them throughout the whole game

    It seems that the bots always pick one person, and then proceed to prioritize that person throughout the entire course of the game, no matter the hero, or their role.

    I think this is a pretty solid issue, as it makes the game not very fun for the person being focused.

    They usually tend to target the one with the highest farm. You can enable bot debugging if you want to see who they will be focusing on.

      In my experience they just tend to focus whoever has the lowest effective hitpoints

          Sometimes its fun, but it's still retarded. I had a case when my team was (3 or 4 players) bringind down their mid barracks, I was pushing top T2 and 5 bots were defending mid. But as soon as I got to that T2 (which had like 200hp) two bots (supports!!!) tped to it. WTF really? And yes, they were focusing me through the game.

            I think that's just because the bots defense logic is totally flawed. If there's no towers to defend, they just go like 'Oh this lane has nothing left to defend!' and just blatantly ignore the lane, which is why often times they just lose the game when they're 1 rax down as they just let the creeps bash away at their ancients. The only reason they sometimes still defend a raxed lane is because they want to defend their T4 towers, but once they drop I've never seen them put up a defense against creeps.

              I did notice that too. Sometimes it's pretty ridiculous, my team would initiate a big fight, I would come in as a support to stun one of the bots and they would all turn towards me and throw everything they had at me... and then get team wiped because all their big spells went on cooldown.

              It's literally overkill sometimes. Ever played a support against a Lion bot?

                I remember a game as Dazzle vs Bane and Lina. I had a farmed DK bot on my team who demolished everything with his BKB while Bane and Lina ignored my whole team just to blow both their ults on me...

                  Will there be Bot updates anymore? Valve time? 2014?
