  • AFK in BOT games

    I know that the game considers you a leaver after 5 min AFK.

    If you make a solo BOT game to get some practice in on a hero, then go do something that ends up taking longer than you suspect (like pooping, then realizing you have a 2nd sortie coming in), your gold resets to 0, then keeps resetting to 0 every other second (or however many seconds it takes to get to 4 passively).

    How to recreate the "bug":

    -start new bot game
    -choose hero
    -don't do anything else

    You'll notice that at around 3:30 min on the clock, your gold resets and keeps resetting.

    Not sure if this qualifies as a bug, since it's a practice match by yourself that you can easily reset, but I'm sure I'd find it annoying if I'm like 5 min into jungle farm practice and I have to start over because I can't get any more items because I had to go poop (or make food, whatever).

    Also, I know you could just save yourself the headache and pause the game (the bots won't mind, I promise), but my point isn't how to circumvent this issue, but that it happens at all.

    It consider you afk for too long and thus 'abandoned' the game, and yes this work even in custom games.

    What happen is that:
    Your gold is split among the rest of your team, including any future gold you might gain, and your items can be sold/taken by your teammates.

    Adding the 1:30 minutes of pre-spawn time and 3:30 after adds up to the 5 minutes estimated afk time for you to get that.

    I guess in a sense it's not a bug per se, but I can see it requiring some tweaks.

    (Though if you're afk that long against bots, I'd suggest you go start a new fresh game anyway)
    Every time someone make a false report.
    Making people's losses feel worse with just my name (don't ask me how it work, I certainly don't)

    People who cry MM isn't fair: Maybe you're not as great as you make yourself to be.
    People who wants surrender: It exists, but I'm not teaching you how to do it.
