  • Nobody on the Midlane if you're in the jungle

    Though my bots had Sniper, Krobelus and Bane, not a single one of them went into the midlane when I was creeping in the jungle with naix. So the lanes looked like 2/0/2 +1 in Jungle.

    I managed to reproduce this behaviour for the radiant side with the following steps:
    - start a private lobby (Settings: Unfair, automatic filling of empty slots)
    - join the blue slot
    - pick naix
    - buy one stack of tangoes, one quelling blade, one stout shield
    - instantly move to the bottom rune and wait for the timer to hit 0:00
    - wait east of the easy camp in radiant jungle just above the ramp
    - keep killing any neutral creeps

    This doesn't seem to happen if you're on the dire side and wait at the top rune and keep jungling after the creeps spawn.

    It's because you walk into part of the lane close to the towers in mid on Radiant side. If you hug the walls on the way out of the base and go into the jungle immediately, between the two trees a bit east of the lane, the bot in mid won't think that you want mid and will stay there. The reason it doesn't happen on Dire is because there is a pretty big entrance to the jungle if you exit base from the top lane, so the chances are you bypass the lane checking 100% of the time because you don't go anywhere near the towers in the lanes.

    I've also noticed that if you stack the Radiant easy camp by pulling it towards the river and mid lane that your bot will leave Radiant mid.
    This ain't ova.
