  • Please bring up the bot difficulty

    The bot difficulty is too easy, even if you put it on unfair. When I practice how to play Invoker or Puck, I always get about 20-30 kills in 20-30 mins and end the game. Especially bots at mid, they don't know how to harass or defend themselves. You can make first blood with riki against viper at level 2 and have 10 kills 10 minutes later. They never even buy sentry wards to try see through my invisibility, only dust.

    I want to master these heroes and win with them in pubs, but in my recent tries I have failed to do so. In fact, I don't do so well because the skill difference between an average pub and bot is very high. Going over the same stomps over again seems pointless and helpless to me because if I want to improve my certain hero's performance I cannot. The only way I can make it a little bit more challenging is maybe create 4 vs. 5 matches, but then your bots don't know what they are doing at all and feed someone like viper to death in 5 mins.

    Please Valve create a bot difficulty that is more challenging to play and is greater practice before stepping into pubs.
