  • Nerf Normal Sniper

    I think that the Sniper Bot on Normal difficulty is a bit too good; his game sense is good, his harass and last hitting is fantastic, and he denies far too efficiently.

    Also, he buys Shadow Blade too much.

    What would you propose instead? There aren't that many legitimate sniper items that are worse.

    Also this will teach players the important of dust and gems.

          The secret is to not try and outlane him. You need to go on him or harass him to the point that he has to base. If you got good early game laning items you should be able to go around and get him when he's away from creeps.

            I kinda agree. In the long term, any normal bot is fairly easy imo, but if I start a bot game to practice a hero and end up in a lane vs sniper... I just quit and restart it. His last-hitting and denying is near perfect.

            The problem is that with melee bots, the fact that the bots take a second to move into melee range and kill the creep gives you that brief window to kill it, and with ranged bots, you have a brief chance to kill the creep after they shoot but before the shot lands. Having sniper just as good at taking the shot just as a creep gets under the health needed to die when sniper's projectile is near-instant means inhumanly perfect shots.

              Bane bot is another near flawless last hitter. It's kind of silly.

                  Fact, bots have been programmed to lasthits. The secret to him lasthitting so well is his attack projectile being so fast.

                  Also, sniper bots are programmed to buy shadow blade.

                    I think that sniper bot pays too much attention on denying and many times forget about last hitting. In my opinion, carry bots should have priority on last hitting, as the support has on denying.

                      I know what the problem with some bots might be. They will try to CS/deny at the beginning of the last-hitting window, making it very hard to cs/deny against them. A real player will probably do it closer to the middle or end of the window since they aren't going to be perfect. Since sniper's animation and missile speed is great, it results in the player having little to no window to get the creep instead.

                          sniper - projectile very fast, low base dmg

                          bane - base dmg very high, short range

                          learn to adapt

                          and yes, easiest way to deal with sniper is to gank him from fog
