  • Save runes if mid (or someone nearby) has bottle?

    Bots seem to 'somehow' know the first few runes that spawn and will beeline for them, regardless of if you're heading for them too or not. Might want to at least make it so they don't 'steal' runes if you're heading for it or you have a bottle!

    On that matter, rune wards would be a neat feature!

          We'd have to turn the feature off before we had SkyNet on our hands!

            Let's just pray VALVe doesn't make the bots too good or we'll soon be praying for leavers in game xD

              Please implement a way to ping an ally AI to not pick up runes. It's almost useless to buy a bottle in any AI games cuz if you are mid, the heroes in the side lanes run straight for the run spots right when it spawns and picks it up even if you have empty bottle. It's so frustrating.

                If a human ally has a bottle, I'll lower their rune desire significantly.

                  I've never seen the bots say anything about checking x rune. I would like it if bots would "ask" you if you want the rune.

                  I actually thought that they should introduce a bot team to The International next year. Their skill of 5-man ganks is unbelievable.

                    I would like that very much ChrisC, but, personally, I'm glad they even go for runes in the first place. I'm pretty sure these bots are better than most of the people I've played with on Battle.net.

                        I can make them announce rune checking, but I wasn't sure if people cared that much or if it would end up feeling too spammy. I'll probably just start by having them not steal bottles out from under you and then see what people think.

                        I could also do a "verbosity" setting somewhere when you can adjust how chatty they are.

                          If the bots bought couriers or wards, they would probably be better than most of the people I've ever played DotA with.

                            Seconding this! Bots playing support heroes should definitely buy the courier/wards.

                              Support-hero bots will purchase/upgrade couriers next update.
