I'm sure this is something they will think about down the road at some point.
how is hon different from dota and lol? you paid for hon and it doesnt have ai bots.
Dota is a map
LoL Is a terrible failure
HoN is a great successor to DotA and didnt get bots first (It does have bots, but only in the tutorial), because its a game for active human players.
Bump! I support this!
Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
Bots would be great. The biggest problem with HoN (and DoTA) is it's learning curve. When you are brand new to the game and have no idea what heroes can do its really rough. I have friends that play HoN and they hate it because they do poorly and they get raged at. The tutorial is extremely limited and while it teaches you the very basics, it does not prepare you for online play. Bots can ease this transition as you aren't getting raged at by your team or getting trash talked by the enemy. Using bots as a learning tool is great for new players but it would be great to have difficult bots for experienced players as well.
in short: I'd love to see bots in HoN. Easier (not dumb) bots to help people learn the basics of the game beyond the tutorial. Harder bots for more experienced players to use. Bots should be available in no-stats games. You should be able to play a team of people against a team of bots or a mix of people and bots vs people and bots. Anything should go as long as its no-stats only.
Because DOTA is just a map.
LoL is "free"
HON isn'T free whereas 30 USD are a clever investment because you dont have to pay ingame for new heroes etc. Dota is just way too slow and waaaay too old if you think about the engine etc.
HON Is a good investment because the game is good and well made and has everything that DOTA lacks atm + is pretty cheap.
i agree with this. fully, this bot idea should be added but also with a low skill level option for new players ofc, dont make them to hard to start with
Its a great way for player's to learn the game without suffering kdr loss. or psr
you shouldnt have to pay anything, it should be a completely free option allowing new players who just spent 30 bucks to get decent at the game. and learn the steep learning curve without loosing 2,000+ psr before they can actually learn the game
Has there been an official comment from the S2 Games, concerning AI and bots? It would really help getting my noob wife up to speed, so we can enjoy the game.
Good and to implement in the begginer guide so the new players can have advices, like "Try to kill creeps and denie yours so your opponent get less xp-money" and having a oppent will show him that he has to be carful because he can be killed. "Don't auto-attack" etc....
The hard part of the programing is not the what to buy /counter pick and etc
its to prorgram to last hit and deny where to go and etc
I actually bought HoN thinking it had some sort of bots feature, dota had theirs for quite some time. Great game despite not having that feature, but that would help me a lot.
Voted no. (Mostly for lols)
great idea, i suggested this too. Though i clearly doubt this will ever be implemented so .. gl
