  • Fix Team Bots

    Hi there, I've noticed that the team bots are usually crap and just love to kill steal. They also tend to never use skill unless to escape, sometimes they never ever use their skills at all. Enemy bots are not as retarded as team bots, why is that? even if they use the same hero, lets say Tiny bot will actually use his avalanche and toss to kill heroes, but if that Tiny is in the player's team, he will use avalanche simply to farm even if enemy heroes as so damn near. Can you please make the team bots less retarded like the enemy team bots at the very least. Apart from cheating mana and immune to some skills like Aghanim's Reaper Sythe(Supposedly cannot buyback) but they do anyway.

    The cheating mana part was very obvious, don't tell me magic stick/wand can produce up to 200+ mana. I've tested this many times, where there was a game I was using a Nyx Assassin and mana burned an enemy Sven bot till his mana was literally 0. Suddenly he uses his magic wand(4 charges) and Storm Bolts me+Warcy, if it was only Warcy, that is believable. Bots also can dodge skills especially Mirana's arrows, Pudge's Hooks, Invoker's Sunstrike and AA's Ice Blast. Hopefully a low dodge command can be added like in the original Dota.

    Some specific heroes that KS or misuse their skills are Omni, DK and obviously Zeus. DK will most of the time reserve his Breathe Fire skill specifically to KS same goes for Omni with Purification. Sometimes Omni with full HP, and teammates with low hp runs near him...he uses Purification on himself, other than that he uses Purification to KS. Bots also tend to have higher probability to get bash or crits, there was a game I've played where a Kunkka with a Crystales gets 6 consecutive crits, I'm not sure this was coded to the bots or just a coincidence but atleast fix the very obvious stuff.

    I've notice bots such as CK, Sven and BH tend to make runes appear nearest to them(This was before rekindling soul update), after the update, all runes apart from Bounty rune will appear nearest to them. I've played several games to test this, lets say if an enemy CK bot is at bottom lane, the runes will appear only at the bottom lane(Before rekindling soul update)/runes apart from Bounty rune appears at bottom lane. It is highly improbable that it was random as the rune spawned around 8 times continuously at bottom lane near the CK bot. I'm not sure if this was actually coded for the bots or simply continuous luck for the bots, which is very unlikely as it happens too frequently.

    Bots also tend to get stuck especially Sand King bot. Other bots sometimes be stuck by not doing anything or moving even if being pinged at. Bots also do not follow the ping most of the time and tend to get stuck near enemy heroes without moving/attacking/using any skills and die. I suggest that there can be a UI for bot commands like there was in the original Dota where players simply type " "(without quotes) to open it or use some in-game commands to force bots to defend/attack/etc.

    So again, I hope that at the very least, team bots are made less retarded as enemy bots(I'm not saying they aren't retarded too). Also, before adding any more bots for other heroes, please fix the current bots first. TY for reading.

    Bots from dota 1 were already good enough, why not valve hire those fellas who made the dota 1 bots? and nearly all heroes have their own bots...just saying...

      Team bots are just beyond stupid, better of I play 1 v 5 bots if I can't play against people due to shitty internet connection. I usually do this using KoTL or Pudge by using blink dagger and Hooking/Recall bots to impassable terrains and denying bots use of courier for TP scrolls. I suggest that we can create a local lobby that allows a 1 v 5 game against bots and so on like in Dota 1. Team bots make me want to rip my balls off!

        You CAN create a lobby without allied bots.

          How exactly to do that? I've created a local lobby, let my team side empty and fill in the enemy side with unfair bots. When start, there's only me in the game, no bots.

            Nvm, the radiant side of the lobby is bugged as posted here http://www.reddit.com/r/DotA2/commen...y_1_vs_5_bots/
            Local lobby cannot do a 1v5 match as in one of the post from the above post, but normal lobbies can. This is a problem if people don't have good internet connection.
