  • Bots information access

    Yes, that thing of bots knowing when you ping them is so damn frustrating, I've pinged enemy bots that are plain auto attacking creeps the whole time from across the map, and the millisecond I ping them they start running back for no reason. Real hacks. Plus, when you cast a stun on a bot from range and you first have to move somewhat closer they will also start retreating as if they know they are being targeted, or if you click behind an enemy bot and start moving toward them they will retreat long before you even reach them. The problem is all game info is stored locally, and the AI (even enemy AI) has access to this info, the trick comes into filtering what info they are allowed to respond to. Like pinging and right-clicking behind them is not suppose to be accessible, but there are many others.

    This really needs revision.

    Not sure if this is a coincidence or not, but sometimes I find that if my stun is on cooldown, just as it comes off cooldown and am about to target them, they use their BKBs. Probably hacks, but I'm not too sure.

        They also cheat with FoW. Rarely, a Kunkka or Earthshaker bot will stun you whilst being in FoW when you channel a TP without any indication that you are there. There was a update attempting to fix that a while ago but it just reduced the occurrence. Could be enough for Valves quality control, tho.
