    Great news! I think so my bot game with my friends will stop freezing a little.

    Had a year in DotA 2 that I thought the Bots' schedule had been closed. There were rumors that Valve had abandoned because he was already good the way he was. I am happy to see that it was not true and that to this day the Bots are still being implemented. I really enjoy offline matches VS bots as much as online with friends and I'm thinking of starting programming thanks to this. God bless Valve's programming team and contributing users as well!

      Another thing:
      I think the bot vs bot matches should be on unfair difficulty, since they would be more fun to watch.

          Great news. Cannot wait for this. I have been playing my ExtremePush bot with other bots and it was great fun.

            im glad that they decided to go this way too, ive played for about 4 years and cant remember a single bot being added or any bot improvements beyond build changes in that whole time.

              Do you guys think this subforum should be moved under "Custom Games & Tools" and rename that to somehow encompass Custom Bots as well?

                No. I think custom games and bots should be separate, in forum and in the workshop.

                  I'm thinking that although the bots scripts has been opened and the workshop page has also been stated, but there's a long way to create imaginative and great bots to against human beings.

                      The bot script section in the workshop doesn't return any results for me ("no items matching your search criteria were found"), does anyone else have the same problem?

                        Just a quick update -- I've been really busy with other work but this isn't forgotten. Getting bots playing each other, and in general more accessible to interested players is something that remains high on my todo list.

                            please read, this has clearly been overlooked in the past.

                                I'd love for you to fix the screen when unassigned; I'm spectating bots and the map is fully dark for like 20 seconds, also no HUD appears for Captains Mode when unassigned either (bot experiment works with this mode, but I can't spectate it)

                                Edit: This was fixed a while ago.
