  • The planting of wards by bots.

    Warming up for tonight's match against mineski I hosted a practice match with bots and set it to unfair. I picked vengeful spirit and started playing it as a support. I used sentries to deward the wards that the enemy bots placed and once the ward was destroyed they kept coming back and warding the exact same place over and over again, despite me having just placed a sentry nearby and destroying their previous ward.

    I can see why this issue hasn't come up before. I mean, who dewards against bots? I was just warming up for a competitive match, but I think the better the bots play the better it is for people who wish to practice without letting their teammates down.

    This is an excellent guide to warding and can hopefully help valve code the bots to ward smarter and with more variety:

    Yeah, they don't really know about counterwarding yet. Thanks for the link to the guide!
