  • [Bug] Pinging on seige wagons.

    Pinging on a seige wagon alerts the bots to it's position. They walk up to the seige wagon, but they do nothing.

    Repro Steps:
    1) Ping a seige wagon.
    2) Watch bot walk up to wagon location.

    Nothing happens, simply watch the bot watch the seige wagon attack your tower..

    Expected Result:
    Bots should eliminate the seige wagon regardless of it being pinged, if it is attacking a tower. If you ping the wagon, it should not only walk up to it, but also attack it.
    This ain't ova.

    Incase the tower is close to being destroyed, they should also consider if they can kill the siege unit before the tower is killed. If they can't they should at least try to deny the tower instead.

      Lately I have seen bots just dismiss Siege weaponry completely at times. Last night there was a catapult hitting one of our towers (while I was dead) and I noticed one of my bots walk right past it to go wonder in circles.

        Pinging on a non-hero, non-tower location indicates to the bots that you want them to group up there, which is why it's not forcing them to attack.

        If you have specific times where you see them ignore siege engines, please let me know (with a screenshot if possible).
