  • Bot teleporting logic seems to need tweaking

    Bots seem to teleport to a friendly tower that's under attack regardless of what sort of attack it is. If it's being attacked by creeps, then one hero teleporting usually makes sense - you can distract the creeps and save the tower from taking more damage.
    When it's four undamaged enemy heroes, on the other hand... At least once a game I see a bot teleport into an unwinnable situation, getting instantly stunned and killed before they can do anything.

    The other issue may just appear to be stupid, not sure though - whilst several enemy heroes were in our base, one bot under attack tried to escape by teleporting to the fountain... from next to its own Ancient. Whilst it's possible this was the best retreat as opposed to walking backwards, I can't help but feel it's unlikely.

    Sorry if there's already a thread about this (and/or it's going to be fixed in the next update already. :P)

    Yeah, there were a few times the bots were so close to the bottom tier 1 towers, they decided to teleport to the bottom tier 2 towers.

      Also, I realised that the your AI bots teleport back to base from right next to where the enemy is, which means 100% death with a stun/5 man gank, really.

        I'll take a look at these -- bots should not be porting into a location where there's a ton of enemy heroes nearby, so it sounds like there's a bug in that code. Having only one bot defend a tower with just creeps on it is a good point, I don't think there's code for that yet but I'll put it on the todo list.

        Sounds like there's a bug in the minimum distance...they really shouldn't be teleporting from their ancient to their base, heh.

        Checking for enemies nearby having stuns when using a channel is on the todo list, too.

        Thanks for the feedback!

          Oh I meant I was Dire, we were at their base, but when one of my ally bot wanted to TP back to our Dire base, he was just a few short walk from the entire Radiant team.

          I know there's still alot to do with the bots, but you guys have done leaps and bounds to improve them. Good job!
