  • Didn't bots use to pick immediately after you've chosen a hero?

    It's kind of boring to wait like a minute for the bots to choose the heroes you know they are going to choose. Shouldn't there be at least an option to make them choose heroes instantly after the player chooses his own?

    +1 bots should instantly choose heroes after all players have chosen theirs and the game should start

    It would make checking new heroes (with bots) easier and quicker.

      They do, if you've spawned as the hero. If you press alt-enter, that will cause your hero to spawn, and then the remaining bots to pick. This should be made more obvious, though.

        Was not aware of the alt-enter thing :S

          alt+enter is a bot only thing?

            No, but it basically only does something in bot matches.
            Alt+Enter is like pressing the 'Play' button after the picking phase has counted down. So the moment you do, your hero is loaded into the map. In bot matches this means they'll instantly finish their picking.
            Technically one could skip the remainder of the picking phase in a normal MM game as well if everyone were to press alt+enter, but having 10 people pick pick time is over is never gonna happen.
