    6.87: drow bot builds silver edge on accident and never uses it.

    since the patch I noticed that drow (and possibly other bots that build manta after shadow blade) accidentally builds a silver edge while trying to build manta, then proceeds to never use the item the rest of the game, and never finishes manta.

    It's not an accident. This is Drow's current default item build. I highlighted the important parts in red.

    Silver Edge is intended, not only because its name appears here, but also because Manta gets its own Ultimare Orb. All bots that build Shadow Blade get it upgraded at some point now, which include Sniper and even heroes without AI files, like Enigma.

    Now, whether bots actually use Silver Edge or not is another story. I certainly thought they would. Knowing they don't makes me think they just added another Ultimate Orb to ensure they finish Manta and call it a day.
