  • 5v5 AI bots - Player spectator

    I would like to know if you are suppose to be able to control bots when you are a spectating a game?

    I created a 5v5 game where the players were bots and I spectated, I wanted to test something, when I stumbled upon this. I can take control of a bot and direct it, it tries to resist me though. I should not be able to control the bot in anyway?

    Thank you.

    This also happens when you use -createhero in any game. The created hero is a bot and receives global bot commands, but then is not able to work on his own like the other bots...^^

    Also how can you spectate a bot-only game for more than 3 minutes?

      Oh is that why the game ended, hahaha. I was not able to spectate more than 3 minutes.
