Bots in DotA was win, so why not here too?
Also, make them able to give simple chat commands too! They should work like a regular player, in terms of warning:
-10 seconds "miss"-rule.
-Tell to push or get back. (chance of unreliability on low-skilled AI)
-Programmable to get whatever items suits that character the most. (And NOT BH with codex!)
-Good pinpoint-system, so if a bot spots another bot/player walking around in forest, it pings it as a signal for "gank-able".
And of course just try to emulate a real battle as good as possible. :x
Voted yes, ofc. Solves many problems and by playing against bots I learned to play DotA.
Items are easy, you have hundreds of thousands of matches. Take just look at the items bought in thoes ones. Oh you have these heroes, these items won 70% of the time and were used 90% of the time.
ALSO, bots would allow a campaign mode. Campaign = tutorial but fun = used & can include more info.
Hahah thanks priming :P And you can only ask S2 that question. So go write a personal message to ze Fielding or Maliken. Or maybe the red je-- Idejder!
And I'd really like to know who the two lone souls are that voted NO and WHY. I'D really like to know -why- exactly o_O
Totally Support This, the DotA AI map helped me lots when is was startin' to play.
Right, I added some explanation issues as to how the "heavy" bots could react to stuff and so on. I am pretty sure there would have to be different reactions such as "IF Enemy buys Carrybuilt & IS carry THEN pestilence builds tankbuilt and goes Anticarry"
And so on. But I am not sure how to write that out yet. So I'm leaving that to a few days untill the lightning strikes me again.
Heroes of Newerth is a competitive game and they should focus on getting as many players to participate, so you would get more players who match your skill later on, and should make the slighest changes between clans make the outcome of a match!
Btw, this thread has more than enough votes and follows the rules to be in the Popular Suggestions section imo It will rise even higher when it's there..
am loving HoN massively atm but my biggest problem is some of my mates who never played DoTA find it impossible to get into HoN cause of the learning curve... they get owned every game and its no fun for anyone. Especially cause every person out there will just flame the hell out of them for being terrible...
If there is a way to get bots happening so i can get more of my mates into the game then Im all for it!
