  • Bots break lobby balance shuffle

    Using balance shuffle in a lobby which has bots can cause players to disapear. They are still in the lobby but do not appear in any section. They must manualy rejoin a broadcast channel or a team before they reapear.

    Player disapears from lobby, player seems to be placed on a random team if the game starts.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    1. Create a lobby (only one player needed)
    2. Join radiant
    3. Add one or more bots to Dire (Single unfair bot used successfully, but multiple players and bots works as well)
    4. Press "Balance Shuffle", player will disappear (100% success rate so far, but MMV)
    5. Rejoin a team to reappear

    Expected Behaviour:
    Players should be balanced ignoring bots, not disappear.
    Bots should be balanced like players if possible (each skill level has a MMR?).
