  • Bots seem to have forgotten how to run away.

    I've noticed that bots are making rather strange decisions while they are running from a fight that they didn't used to make.

    Example 1)
    Zeus is running from me after a fight. He has rather low health and I'm picking at him with auto-attacks (I am Morphling). He has two hits left and he gets out of my field of view for a fraction of a second (we were the same speed so with my attacks he was getting a little further away). He then starts trying to teleport out. I easily catch up to him and finish him off.

    Example 2)
    I'm chasing Sniper past the top barracks toward his fountain. He's going to get away... until he decides to head directly north into the woods to eat a tree. This costs him his life.

    I never saw these problems before the Wednesday update.

    I had a situation earlier today where my team (Radiant) destroyed 4 of the 5 heroes in a team battle by our t2 mid tower. The last enemy hero Windrunner managed to windrun away with ~200hp. I thought to myself "Oh well, she ran back to their fountain", so I went to push the middle creep wave. I then see Windrunner cross over the river to the Radiant side where I immediately killed her.

        Yeah, it happened so fast that I forgot to get them. Can you get them from replays or no?

          Not from replays, no, though there is some info we can get from them. In any case, I'll take a look based on the descriptions you gave.
