  • Lack of bots micro ability

    EDIT: Sorry, my bad here. I admit I didn't use the search function before posting.
    There was already a thread regarding this before me. http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=25510


    I was just spectating my friend's game where they are fighting against a team of 5 bots on Dire.
    The Dire bot had a Necronomicon Level 1 and as you can see in the first two picture below,
    Tidehunder is block by a Necronomicon Warrior and hence, stuck there till the timer is up for the Necronomicon Warrior.






    The third image shows that the Dire bot summoned the Necronomicons again during a teamfight but after the fight, they just left them there.




    This is not a complain thread or a "fix this shit" thread. It's just to inform the devs that bots are still lacking the AI to micro creeps under their control. Thanks.

    I noticed this too. I think they should just remove Necronomicon from Bane's build until bots can successfully give other units orders. It ends up being a pretty big waste of gold when they don't utilize the summons properly.

      Agreed. Definitely seems the fastest fix while the team works on the more pressing issues with the AI.

        He doesn't build necro because that's part of his build, but because the devs want to test behaviour with that item.
        Same for former Blademail on Windrunner. Not standard, but they needed it on someone to check the logic.

        Or in other words: The goal in the Beta is not a fast fix, but a long time solution.

          Bots should always be giving orders to their minions too, something must be broken with the Necro guys. Thanks for the report!

                Awesome, now competing with bots will feel more 'alive' with micro. Next up, hope to see them supports warding.
                No rush, just suggesting
