  • Bot Bugs

    Hello everyone,
    we played some rounds against bots, to get into DotA2 today.
    Here is what we've discovered or feel that it needs changes:

    1. Windrunner Bot is running while casting her Ultimate ... (i want to do that too ).

    2. Bots seem to stay off lane a very long time, after they were harrassed to 1/3 hp or below.

    3. Bots tend to suicide into Towers if the Tower is low in HP.

    4. Bots seem to have clear-vision, theyre blinking uphill to initiate on players.

    5. Bots staying infront of Tier-1 Tower makes it very hard to push them off to another lane in the beginning.

    6. Bots roaming too much, making it easy to out-level them.

    More to come :-)
    btw. the game is AWESOME!!!!!!

    1. Windrunner Bot is running while casting her Ultimate ... (i want to do that too ).
    - If it's the same target, then Windrunner could run around and still have her Ultimate going, as long as it's the same target. If she's attacking a different target but still have her ultimate going, then it's a bug.

    2. Bots seem to stay off lane a very long time, after they were harrassed to 1/3 hp or below.
    - True to this, I can confirm this myself. Even if their hp is like 80-100+ they'll still linger around to push low HP towers.

    3. Bots tend to suicide into Towers if the Tower is low in HP.
    - I've observed multiple times that bots tend to 'dance' inside tower attack range and get hit by tower from full HP to less than half HP. Without landing a single attack on tower, they are just dancing around, particularly Kunkka.

    4. Bots seem to have clear-vision, theyre blinking uphill to initiate on players.
    - Tidehunter always seems to do this after he gets blink dagger.

    5. Bots staying infront of Tier-1 Tower makes it very hard to push them off to another lane in the beginning.
    - Not sure what you meant by this.

    6. Bots roaming too much, making it easy to out-level them.
    - I usually out-level them by killing them a lot during level 1-6 due to their predictable behavior of chasing us till they get weakened by out Tier-1 tower. All we have to do is get boots as starting item and we'll able to secure many kills by chasing.

    More to come :-)
    btw. the game is AWESOME!!!!!!

      This is a "bug" which is kinda odd:
      the enemy bots don't kill your courier if it's found wandering around. The enemy creeps will, but not the bots. Not saying they should chase the courier around the map, but killing it would be a good punishment for lack of map awareness.

        ad 4) I think they guess where to blink, but their fast reflexes seem like they had vision before.

          - Not sure what you meant by this.
          I mean befor the game is starting, all Bots automatically move to lanes. But they dont stay near Base to block Creeps, they move to the Tier1-Tower and stay there.
          That makes it very hard to get them off this lane if you want to go there and block creeps beforehand.

            AI blocking the creeps may be asking for too much. Have patience, maybe it will be looked upon.

              The standard for laning is:
              - 2 heroes top.
              - 1 hero mid.
              - 2 heroes bottom.

              If you move to the mid, the AI will move to either top or bottom depending on which lane has only 1 hero.
              Same logic applies to the top and bottom lane. AI will move to whichever lane to fulfill the laning standard.
