  • Bot AI - Never attacks Lone Druid bear

    Not sure if this is a bug or just incomplete AI. I have no screenshots, but this is fairly easy to reproduce: Simply start a bot game, either co-op or in a private lobby, choose any bot difficulty, select Lone Druid, and do anything with the bear. No matter what, bots do not attack the bear. Put a Radiance on the bear and put it next to 5 bots milling about in a lane with your own hero(the Lone Druid himself) far away, with summon bear on cooldown, etc, any set of conditions you can think of. The bots never, ever attack the bear. This makes bot games quite easy even if you are not a good player because you can harass bots endlessly in lane and even burn them to death with Radiance since they will never force you to pull the bear away.

    edit: Sorry this thread should be in the bot section.

    If you kill Druid, the Bear dies instantly.
    I would rather target LD instead of that 3000+ HP bear.
    BOTS are smart, you see if the BOTS were to attack the bear, any pub-pro player can summon the ability again - can be exploitable in some ways.
    Therefore, BOTS targets LD.

    LD is easy kill from early - mid, late game - a little harder, you just have to know how to defeat him.

      uh he's hard to kill if he's in bear form

      there are a ton of situations where the right thing to do is to target the bear. I would imagine this topic belongs in the bot section though
