  • Please just remove friendly bots they are bad!

    The friendly bots are super bad to the point of useless I would be better off 1v5 with bots.

    The bots just hide behind the tower getting exp they don't even farm!!! / last hit like the enemy bots!

    They seem to be scad to do anything because you put way to much of the ai on the player.

    Your forced to be the carry you can't do any support heros this is just sad.

    I was 15-0 but all my bots were 2-30 god wish you could just remove allyed bots

    The bots are meant to help people learn the basics of the game. Like last-hitting, denying, getting used to the map, learning where the jungle spots are, roshan techniques. Basically, bots are meant for people to get a feel for the game. Bots aren't substitutes for real players.

      Bots being worse than humans is pretty obvious imo. However, id love a 1v5 option to have some fun with 4k gold at the start XD

        The biggest issue with the bots was that they do not help when you are in trouble.
        They used to respond to ping, but now that's changed for some unknown reason.
        The bots using courier is a nice touch, but sometimes the bots never pick it up. Not sure if it's because they die as the courier is sending it to them and hence never pick up..
        Another thing - when you use illusion, the bots know whos the real one.

          I've definitely seen things like Tidehunter pop Ravage only on illusions, so they aren't completely sure. And yeah, they have a few issues with the courier if they die/you hijack the courier while it is enroute -- they'll never get their items until they buy something else and try to send it to themselves. You can manually deliver the items to them, but that's obviously a pain.

            Friendly bots also seem incapable to group up, which enemy bots are quite adept at. The result? Unstoppable five man pushes by enemy bots while your own bots are going back and fourth at the neutrals.

              What I think is needed is for players to be able to toggle the slots for players/bots. That way players can choose to play against only 2 or 3 AI as opposed to a full team, or choose not to have AI teammates.

              It also gives players that want to stop AI with a friend or 2 to do 3v5s to really test out their skill.

                They've already said they are making the bot interface better at some stage, where you can choose who your bots are, etc.

                  When I was laning with Vengeful Spirit, I competed last hits with 3 heroes and denies with 2 heroes as a carry. Why? Cauz, VS just stood very far behind me and tried to do last hits, very few denies, and no harassment. At the same time, they kept harassed me.

                    I agree with the OP, the friendly bots can really be annoying.

                    Friendly bots also seem incapable to group up, which enemy bots are quite adept at. The result? Unstoppable five man pushes by enemy bots while your own bots are going back and fourth at the neutrals.
                    This is also true.
                    That's why I'm a big fan of coop-matches for practice.
