"Easier" Bots don't seem to be easy enough for learning purposes

    My main concern is that easy bots prevent th game from ending at all. They seem to refuse to push into the base. We can kill all five enemy heroes and they just go back to farming or shopping when the enemy barracks is defenseless.

    I tried playing a 2v2 game with friends, using easy bots to fill in, and the game was basically unwinnable for either side. The bots just would not attack, while the other sides bots would stop our 2 man pushes cold.

    I think that no matter what difficulty the bots are set at, their agressiveness should snowball as they gain an advantage. Let them go up to normal difficulty if needed after a certain point so that we can actually finish games.

    All they managed to do was make my newbie friends think dota is boring.
