  • No Battle Points/item drops in Co-Op bot games.

    This is indeed a bug, atm we are supposed to be getting BP and Items from bot games and it has been broken since yesterday at around 6pm EST.

    I personally bought the exp boost for playing Co-Op bot games with my friends that are just starting the game so that way we all can get items and have fun without the pressure of a real match.
    If something could be done about this and the exp boost that would be awesome.

    Here are some match id's were no BP was awarded and no items dropped. All games were VS Normal Difficulty Bots.

    This was also the last game that we did get BP on Friday the 15th

      the sheer amount of exact same threads and the fact that the it took the players 4-5 games to realize THEY DISABLED BP GAINS FROM COOP comes to tell me there are way too many farmers out there.

        I don't think that you realize that this is a thread reporting bugs and not a forum to flame people because you think you are smarter than them.

        There is no official announcement stating that they removed BP and Items from Co-Op. So thus this is a bug. The need for multiple threads in a forum such as this is to increase awareness of problems.

          NO. You post in the SAME thread, that's why a lot of people get pissed when you don't use the search function. And there is no official announcement stating bot games were even suppose to get BP and items besides a post from Greenmine saying that they planned to add it.

            well if you read the official faq it says practice lobbies will not be awarded bp and says so when you start a practice game - in coop games I still get my bonus msg but no bp is awarded as it has been since day 1

              Can confirm this, my battle points boots still displays but no BP after the game. A huge let down to tell the truth.

                Hmmm I played a few co op games about a week ago and definitely got battle points. So unless something they changed something.

                Only thing I noticed is that when I did it on easy I got nothing, but normal I did get points.

                Mind letting us know the difficulty settings?

                  There was extreme coop bot abuse going on. I saw at least 1 person with level 15 already, simply by abandoning bot games over and over for free BP/items. This was necessary, at least until they fix the coop matchmaking abuse.

                    Retarded to say the least. Now Valve is forcing noobs to play real MM to get BP and lose and rage.

                      or to use bots to learn and practice, and then go to real MM to get BP

                        No, this way they are forcing people who did NOT get enough practice yet to go MM.

                        I have friends who just started MOBA and we play coop bots to learn and at least earn something. Now, I see no reason to help them out and teach them the game. There has to be incentive.

                          There is really no need for multiple threads. Please don't start duplicates, bump existing threads instead.

                          -Make sure its a bug (test in WC3 Dota, visit playdota guides and adv. mech, etc). If you're still not sure, post in Mechanics and Gameplay Bug Brainstorming instead.
                          -Read the Bug Posting Guidelines on how to report a bug properly.

                            LOl what? You need incentives to teach your friends? That's pathetic.

                            Anyways, I think once the game has a good ranking system, we won't have to worry about getting matched up with beginners. Bots don't simulate the real game well enough anyways.

                              Actually, it's an even worse idea than I thought. There is now NO incentive at all to stay in a bot game. People are now just disconnecting if things don't go for them at the start as there is no longer any reward for completing the game... BP worked as a reward for keeping people playing to the conclusion no matter what - and it was obviously working, though nobody noticed until they removed it. Now there is no reward and no obligation to stay, and cause these games are safe to leave, they are doing...

                              duh!
