  • Spectators Controlling Practice Bots

    I'm not sure if this is an intended feature or not.

    But spectators can control the bots in practice mode.
    It's not like you just assume control of the bots either, they actively fight to do what they want over what you want.

    Kinda funny to fiddle with none the less.

        yeah, I was spectating my friends today (whilst one of them was playing their first game) and I kept trolling them by selecting all of the enemy bots and forcing them to 5 man gank them :P

        surprisingly funny because they kept forgetting I was able to control the bots, so they were confused as to how the bots knew exactly where they were all the time!

        But yeah... this needs to be fixed, cos as I said. It's really really easy to grief people..

        I.e you could do the opposite to what I was doing and run friendly bots away from team fights, or force them to use all their abilities on creeps so they're all on cool down.. the possibilities are endless!

          Haha people could have wayyyy too much fun with this exploit xD

            Well, it's not in the normal delayed spectator mode -- it's only people that hop into spectator slots of their lobbies, before they start them. But it should be fixed in the next update.
