No. S2 can't even handle running the game properly at the moment. Their servers are unstable and heroes are unbalanced, and yet they still release un-needed content and keep releasing heroes every other week to compete with LoL.
Since the DDoS attack the game servers have been VERY unstable. People have been complaining for a long time and they don't fix it.
They also have made a lot of promises/contests and they forget all about them, S2 used to listen to the community back in closed beta but now they seem to not care.
Before they start wasting time on programming bots they should try to fix their game first. Their recent actions has started to look like they are very hungry for money, which is why people start calling it $2 instead of S2.
TL;DR - No, S2 needs to fix the game first and fulfill their old promises.
If you have read my post, you would know that even with the 90% or whatever the numbers are who voted 'Yes'. The chance of S2 making bots is below 0.01%
Not having an easy way to practise is what keeps a lot of people from playing HoN, having an easy way to practise would keep a lot more people playing the game, paying for the game. (You know, the more fun a game is, the more you want to play it, but if people constantly call you a noob/tell you how bad you are simply because you haven't played the game before, then it's hard to find the will to keep playing) o_o
I'm pretty sure it would help their cashflow.
