  • Bots with less CC

    Can we please have future bots with less CC? It seems like every game, 80% of their heroes have 2+ reliable sec stun, for a total of 8 seconds+ stun guaranteed.

    A 5-man bot team with Chaos Knight, Dragon Knight, Vengeful Spirit, Earthshaker, and *insert other CC support here, such as Lina, Bane, and pretty much any other hero in the whole bot cast* is very, very, very annoying.
    As soon as 1 lands a stun, you're basically dead, which is sure to happen because they have inhuman reflexes (which is intended). Sometimes I do wish to train other things than to 1. rush BKB not to get stunlocked, or 2. make sure to always isolate one bot in order to not get stunlocked, or 3. Split push in order to have a free win.

    Thank you!

    Lots of real PvP games include mass stun AOE lineups so it's right that you should see them in bot games too.

    This is something that will slowly change, anyway, as more heroes are added. It wasn't that long ago when every single bot bar jugg had a stun so 5 man stun lineups was the norm and they chained them perfectly every time. It meant that bkb was pretty much first item after boots on every hero or you insta melted every fight.

    Since then they've added over half a dozen non stun bots to the pool and you get a much greater variety of lineups to face but it's good practice to thinking outside the usual item builds if you have to face stun or nuke or slow or AOE heavy opponents in some of your games.
