  • i learned how to defeat bots

    First of all, i purchased a new powerful laptop to play the game smoothly. When i throw a bot game, unless my allies let them grow so bad, i can beat them in this way below ;

    Before everything, TRY TO PICK SUPPORT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!

    1) Do not ever defend your own towers when they are grouped up. Push the towers of the enemy at that time.They'll eventually spawn to their attacked tower.

    2) Do not ever attack alone!

    3) Always harass a bit and pull back. Harass a bit and pull back.

    4) Never ever attack with a carry like sniper or PA first. Initiate with supports like WD.

    5) If ALL bots suddenly find each other and group up to bang when you try to infiltrate their base, harass a bit and pull back. Do not continuously attack.

    6) try to place wards properly.

    7) if they purchase mekansm or armor enhancing items and running through your base with a fury, drag them back to fountain and hunt there.

      There's been literally hundreds of posts saying how utterly retarded the bots are at dealing with split pushing... This ain't nothing new.

          Finding out a way to defeat bots is not an achievement at all, unless your point is "Bots are stupid". But regardless, let's go through your tips.

          I wouldn't say "pick support heroes", but rather any hero with disables and strong mid-game. Also Viper.

          1) Better solution: But generally you're right.
          2) Unless you have snowballed out of control, which you can easily achieve. Also, if the bot carry has been beaten mercilessly during the laning stage, it will farm a lane alone trying to get at least something besides boots and wraith bands (hint-hint), even when it is time to 5-man push. Easy target.
          3) That's pretty much what you should always do even against real players, last-hitting aside.
          4) Doesn't matter as long as your team is ready to follow up after bots decide to chase you. Easy with Sniper, harder with PA because she's melee.
          5) They tend to do that upon a creep-spawn. Thus , partially because his ult is instant, which makes him one of the very few heroes that can pull off a blink initiation against bots.
          6) COMPLETELY unnecessary. Bots have very predictable routes.
          7) True. Stupid bots.

            Edit : as long as your team mates do not know how to play, how to cast spells or feed so bad, NEITHER BOT GAME NOR MM is making a difference. i had such a stupid CM game which we were 4 people in the beginning of the game, weaver and am fed viper drow and sniper. Weirdly, the rival team kept playing with 4 people however, they grew so much which didnt change the reality to push hard and win the game.(for them)

              Weaver and AM are NOT newbie-friendly heroes.

                With any hero, go mid and rush MoM+Rapier, get Aegis if you are not feeling manly. Never fails for me.

                      beating bots is not the goal for most people. especially not on this forum.
                      splitpushing against them is like using ion shell or shadow poison, bots are bugged/not far enough developed to deal with it properly.

                      the serious aim of botgames should be to learn the heroes/jungle/map/items/warding/pulling etc.
                      dont train bad habits you gonna regret in later public mm. like "haras a bit and pull back" that pubbing furi smurf is gonna eat your ass xD


                      when im out for entertainment with my stoner friends and we want to roflstomp the enemy 2v5 "insane" bots we just kill them all the time from min 0 (need to cheat 380g though)
                      id like more of a challenge here and then, with extra gold/xp for the enemy.

                        Viper bot sucks hard at lasthitting and barely harasses with orb (heck, scrubs from normal harass more with regular ranged heroes), melee heroes are tanky by default and have good base damage, they are actually really good vs Viper AI in mid since you can outlasthit him easily and farm a lot without much trouble, you just gotta not suck at the game.
