    I was also hoping that Chris was back or similar, its nice to see they have done some work on the bots again, im still hoping they put some small resources into the API again.... it isnt much for such a large company to spend to improve a flagship product.....
    who ever did the improvements is better than whoever wrote the bots in the first place as they seem to play better. lets hope they get put onto improving the API too.
    there is much that needs to be added just to keep up with the game changes and thing that were never added - vector targeting, bots being able to attack runes and probably a hndred other things.

    come on valve!

    I Was Given Hope, Then It Was Taken Away

    In the Dota post "A New Approach to Helping Players Learn Dota" they talk about how they updated the bots to work with the current map and all that. It also mentions community bots.
    Since they were given such a prolific endorsement I came back here after a year to see if the API had been updated for us to use.
    Sadly, we're in the same spot.
    They're more interested in producing a show which has nothing to do with Dota aside from injecting some characters to draw in new players rather than actually nurturing the communities.
    I'm done. The bot scripting was my lifeline for Dota and I kept it installed hoping one day we'd be thrown a bone but it's just time to pack up and move on.
