  • Enemy AI Team Backdooring Towers

    Hey Valve,

    For some reason the enemy AI doesn't mind backdooring towers (en masse) in order to destroy them when they're under a certain amount of health.

    I think they should push the lane down to the tower like any normal human enemy hero would instead.

    technically backdooring being disallowed is for tournaments and at the discretion of those moderating the tournament
    it is a legitimate, albeit frowned upon tactic though
    also, were creeps in the base in any other lane?

    bots be on that next level sh*t

      If the tower is deniable, shouldnt the bots should be allowed to backdoor

        Well, there's a buff that towers receive (backdoor protection) when there haven't been any enemy creeps nearby in a little while that quickly heals up any damage the tower takes -- this is the buff that bots pay attention to to make sure that they're not backdooring. If you see them attacking with that buff up, then it's a bug, otherwise it's probably "working as intended".

          Does the buff get removed if the tower is deniable?

              problem with backdooring bots is, that they`ll just rush it running through creepwaves and stuff in a totally suicidal manner. <(even with enemy heroes defending the tower)

                  Mhh That Backdoor Regen buff.

                  Basically I had my bots backdoor a few times in a weird fashion. They just rushed the enemy tower, but instead of attacking it they stood next to it until either one of the bots got really low ( which lead to retreating) or the crep wave arrived ( which eld them to finally attacking the tower).

                    In the next bot update I changed the way they wait for their creeps to arrive, they should no longer be in range of the tower.
