  • Bots can see invisible heroes.

    I started a practice game with Riki today and after hitting level six I noticed the bots had a good idea about where I was all the time. No gem, wards or dust to speak of but when I approached a bot they backed off. Even when their creep wave was on my side of the river and attacking the tower they wouldn't go past me. If I move up they'd move back. Once I got in range of their tower they activated their abilities(Sven poped his ulti and windrunner shackled me). I escaped the tower range and they followed me down the lane but the second I turned back they retreated again to their tower.

    Riki has been having issues with his invis. It's not just bots.

      Before the latest update I had Juggernaut (no wards/dust/gem/tower) chasing me to death on a few occasions with bladefury when I was skeletonwalking (lv1, couldn't outrun since he had boots and I didn't) in a reasonably erratic way. Haven't tested since the update yet.

        Thanks for the good description -- there are a lot of places where bots could not be properly checking for invisibility, so this kind of info is great for tracking down the issue.

          i thought it was working as it is intended. they are too stupid, at least seeing invis. heroes make them harder to kill. because you can't gank them with riki, they always know where you are and later, they start to buy dusts which makes your location visible. cheating bots xD
