  • AI seems hesitant to finish items from the Secret Shop

    I noticed recently in my games that Razor seems to have trouble buying Vitality Booster for finishing Vanguard. I play games lasting 40 minutes with Razor bot where he has an inventory of Boots, Stout Shield, Ring of Health, a TP scroll and a couple of Branches at the end of the game, but with more than enough gold to finish Vanguard. I've also had a recent occasion when I've seen Juggernaut visit the Secret Shop with Ring of Health, Broadsword, and Claymore in his inventory, but rather than finishing Battlefury he just stands there stuttering around as though he's trying really hard to buy his Void Stone but can't bring himself to do it. Eventually the enemy team started pushing mid and he TP'd home to defend without finishing the item. I also just watched joinDOTA's stream where Tobi and synd were playing a bot game, and the Razor on Tobi's team had Ring of Health and Stout Shield in his inventory but over 2000 gold until about 30 minutes into the game when he finally bought Vitality Booster, and Juggernaut on synd's team finished the game with everything for Battlefury except Void Stone in his inventory, but more than 2000 gold.

    Was this before the most recent update (10/13)? I fixed a bug that would cause bots to not purchase an item from the side/secret shops sometimes in that update, so if it was before that it's probably fixed. If it was after that, I'll try to figure out what else is going on.

      Well, most of my experiences have been before that update, but the streamed instance I mentioned was after it. Razor did get his item eventually in the streamed instance.
