  • [Suggestion] Fill specific slots with bots

    Hey there,

    Back in Dota1 I would often fight against all the bots myself (with 5x the starting gold since I had no allies) and while very difficult in it's own way, it was a lot of fun. Sometimes me and my housemate would go 2v5 and have to be at our best to outfarm and outpush the whole enemy team of bots.

    Currently, the only option is 'Fill all empty slots with bots'. While of course this emulates a real game better, it would be nice to have the option to just assign bots to slots. You could play 3v3 or 1v5 or whichever you like. Since this wouldn't require work on a complicated level like actually programming bot behaviour and is just a matter of modifying how many bots are in a game, I hope it's doable.

    Aside from that, I think the DotA2 bots are a big improvement over the old ones, and am always glad to see in every patch that there are lots of bot improvements
