  • Did a Recent Patch Ramp Up Bot Difficulty Again?

    Today I played a match with in my private Lobby. I wound up aborting it, because the Medium opponent Bots got too powerful and were destroying my towers and base.

    I tried again with Easy opponents, but after a while, they started snowballing again, but not as fast as on Medium?

    I also noticed they ignore my Middle Lane pick on the strategy screen, and in the second fight, I noticed they tended to gather in the middle to fight before going to their lanes as expected. When things started going south (and it was time for me to get off, anyway), I aborted the match.

    Did a recent patch break the AI again? I know this has happened before (but not in Lobby), and it was eventually fixed. Hopefully it'll be fixed again soon, because I also noticed that more of the Heroes have been given Bot support...THAT I really like!

    UPDATE: I should've mentioned this yesterday, but my allied bots were set to Unfair in both cases. Also, here are the teams I had in the fights:

    Game 1 - Radiant: Lina (me), Dark Willow, Silencer, Grimstroke, Crystal Maiden / Dire: Vengeful Spirit, Luna, Wraith King, Lich, Skywrath Mage

    Game 2 - Radiant: Lina (me), Io, Pangolier, Batrider, Lion / Dire: Vengeful Spirit, Drow Ranger, Axe, Dragon Knight, Necrophos

    Is there a gross imbalance going on there? ADDENUM: In both case, I voted to ban Bloodseeker, in case that also helps somehow.

    Anyway, I saw there was a big patch last night (EDIT: and another one this morning), so I'll try again later today.

    EDIT: I lost again, but I also discovered the real cause: (hopefully it's okay to link to my new topic here)

    Sorry for the bump, but I just played a match with my allies on Unfair and the opponents on Dire. I thought things were better at first, but in the end...I lost.

    Radiant: Lina (me), Centaur Warrunner, Bane, Abaddon, Omniknight / Dire: Windranger / Shadow Fiend / Dazzle / Lich / Warlock

    Final Score was 28-46. I have pictures as proof, but they don't seem to upload via Manage Attachments for some reason...too big?
