  • [AI] Bots buy gem and dust at start against Riki

    Yesteday I started a bot game as Riki. Within the first couple minutes i killed the enemy Tiny, and he dropped a gem of true sight. I was level 2 or so at the time.

    I started a couple more games as Riki, and didn't see any gems at the start. They did buy a lot of dust at the start though. 3/5 of the enemy heroes typically buy dust right off the bat against Riki.

    Since Riki isn't going to be invisible until level 6, they don't really need the dust / gem so early.

    They also buy a Gem if the enemy has Sand King. It's not the best STARTING item... (besides I don't think bots should have the +250g advance).

      Well I got killed by a WR when I was using Broodmother because I didn't realise she had Gem.

        Are you guys still seeing them purchase dust/gem at the start of a game?


        • #5
          Yep. Played Broodmother and enemy ES had dust of appearance.

            When I had brood they bought gem but around the 10min mark. Not starting item.
