    There's been a significant amount of internal restructuring lately, which is likely to cause changes in tuning or just outright bugs. Descriptions of specific instances where they're doing something wrong, with screenshots and bot debug info if possible, are the most helpful.

    As I've posted in this thread, there's a bad bug in defending currently which will cause them to go the wrong location and/or do nothing when they should be defending.

    Will this be fixed in the production/beta version or the test version when you fix it chris? I don't know what the update schedule is like anymore. It though it was a week? Are you still doing that?

    Thank you very much for your responses Chris! It means a lot to know that the developers are reading the forums, and we're not just talking to nobody. To clarify, according to my experiences, the bots not responding to pings seems to go along with your defensive bugs. They will not listen at all to any defensive pings. No matter how many times you try to get them to go back and defend, they just keep pushing. Offensively, on the other hand, they actually listen to me just about every time I ping on an enemy hero to gank them, even if it means that my ally will tower dive to a definite death.

    The update that happens this week will have a fix for the really bad defense bug. There are quite possibly other issues, but the biggest issue should be better after the update.

    It will also include changes to how bots handle push/defend pings, please let me know if it feels better!

    I think bots still have a higher priority in killing an enemy rather than defending their ancient eventhough they have TP scrolls



    up above, the bots were hunting down viper from the top lane all the way to the radiant top T1 tower while leaving their base undefended

    Then only Sniper manage to TP back to the Ancient and we won by then

    IMHO: A bot should not TP back to defend their ancient either if it isn't in danger (full health and no creeps/enemy nearby) or if think the only way that they can destroy the enemy ancient faster is without a single TP.

    Seems like they become dumber and dumber with every patch. :/
    Sorry for my bad English.

    I don't necessarily think they're getting dumber, but I just don't understand why they choose not to attack the enemy when the enemy is killing the tower and only choose to initiate after the tower dies.

    This certainly doesn't happen when you attack the enemy tower and the bots usually don't stay behind and wait to initiate after the tower dies.

    Also, the ping I feel is barely working. It seems to have a weaker human response more than ever.
