    Oh common, for fuck sake, really? Just fix the damn bots Valve really: what's the fucking point of having them cheat the fuck out of the game?

    I played a practise game to exercise a few new heroes, and my lane partner (Jakiro) died 3 times in the first 4 minutes. Mainly because the fucking enemy Chaos Knight blatantly cheats with mana for fuck sake. I made a point of counting: In the first 5 minutes of the game he casted 7 reality rifts and 4 chaos bolts . . In total that 1050 mana spent. WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK!!! And I checked, he did not have or use a single clarity potion and to all the people always asking a fuckton of questions, no there was no CM on the enemy team to give mana regen and no he did not have a fucking million stick charges, in fact he did not even have a stick. When I play CK and I cast a single chaos bolt and reality rift combo I'm out of action with mana for the next 2 minutes at least. How the FUCK do the bots just cheat like this. . It's ridiculous. How can you practise new heroes and strategies if the bots can just wip mana outta their asses? How can you practise ganking if they can cast spells they are not suppose to? Better yet: why the blue fuck can your allied bots not also cheat with mana??

    Chris C, your bots are a pathetic joke!

    Would be great if you could provide some screenshots next time.

    Unfortunately no one has yet suceeded in posting some evidence of the mana bug.

        What're you on about? Spells only cost 0 mana if WTF mode is on, regardless of test client or not.

        Anyhow, the mana cheat bug is pretty commonly known at this point. There's been way too many reports to deny it at this point, and there have actually been screenshots showing the bots cheat.
        And your allies do cheat their mana as well I'm pretty sure, the thing is that there seem to be some odd conditions to the mana cheat, nobody's really clear on it but they don't consistently cheat, that's for sure.

        And ChrisC hasn't let himself be known on this section in almost 2 months now... Sigh.

          I wish they would record bot games so I can upload a video.

            Most common debate is on SK's resurrection. He always seems to have mana for it regardless of anything else.
