DotA 6.72 AI (news and woes)

Well, 6.72 is out... by the first look GREAT changes gameplay-wise... but AI wise... half the heroes get broken... some of them become useless. Loads of work on porting and then fixing the AI heroes... and you can bet that the changes port will be a breeze compared to fixing the AI.
So.. the plan is-> 6.71b AI release first and then 6.72(x). But i`m not happy with the amount of work needed for 6.72 AI release. It wont happen soon too.

Also the new hero: Rubick... as i`m reading his skills, i think that i can make him an Invoker v2.0. In my mind some scenarios emmerge: you release a stun projectile to Rubick... he steals the stun and releases a stun to u just before he gets stunned... so u both are stunned at the same time... just he`ll get out of stun before you :) neat!

  3. I have seen the changelog of DotA 6.72 and wow.. there's a lot, lot, lot changes...
    Especially for heroes, wow.. For example with Invoker and Phoenix. Lot changes have been made for some heroes to balance the game..

    Then it's only mean one thing, you must work harder than before to keep following this update.. No one want to play old style while the other have change their style.. Hehe..

    Good Luck for DotA 6,72 AI!! ^^

  9. i think it would be better if u skip d 6.71b AI. coz we'r all waiting for 6.72b AI. so, mybe u could start working on d 6.72b AI instead of 6.71b AI...

    btw, d 6.70c AI is very satisfying...
    LOVE IT...

  10. Is there any sort of command list for this AI map? I've scoured the net (i.e. Google) and couldn't find anything intelligible. :/

  11. Perhaps you can make 6.71 ai with the following changes:
    a) Remove ring of regeneration from ai starting items. The regen hinders harassment and effect of nuke spells, something which is the norm in real games. Furthermore, I noticed that ai can buy more starting items with their available gold, like bracer + 3 branches + 2 pot.....
    b) Make ai go for heroes rather that creeps when appropriate. Some heroes still comtinue to hit creeps despite being hit by the enemy hero.
    c) As of now, ai can buy all their items from the fountain, including void stone etc. Make them visit the sideshops and secret shops instead.
    d) Improve the standard of all ai heroes. Currently for 6.70 ai, good job on invoker, viper, necro'lic, ursa, leoric etc.
    Thank you in anticipation.

  14. Damn it. I made a long post, but there was a technical problem on Blogger's end when I tried to post.

    Concise version:

    Alastor:

    Type in a blank message ("Enter" key, "Spacebar", "Enter" key again).

    Wilkin:

    I agree with all of your points, and I think (a) and (c) should not be hard to implement.

    Additional suggestions:

    1. Make AI defend properly (defend the side that is most in danger of losing rax instead of defending the side being attacked by one or no heroes and still has tower intact).

    2. Make AI item builds dependent on their teammates builds. It's a huge loss of gold when multiple AI teammates go for RoB/Vlad's, Mek, Shiva's, etc.

    Thanks for your work.

  15. well, i think you need some fixed about AI, some of them never use skill (clockwerk...) and always try to steal our kills by his skills ( VS used her stun to ks, beast master use stun to ks....). IN the new AI map one released, i think just invoker is working really good, so what's wrong with all tanker? they always get behind me although i'm queen of pain? just try to fix it please, please

  19. Or maybe a 6.72 ai (not b). Wanna steal stats from bots :D

  20. Well, I think, like most players are waiting for the 6.72 ai, I think it would be a good idea to skip the 6.71 to 72, because 71 will not be so different from the 70 there, and how much has changed in the heroes 72, you'd better work on it already.
    And you have the PBMN forecast will be released when the 72 there?
    If you have ever, post here for us, because I'm sure many are anxious for this map.
    Well done to all, note 10 for you.

  23. The following suggestions are crap. don't change this.

    a) Remove ring of regeneration from ai starting items. The regen hinders harassment and effect of nuke spells, something which is the norm in real games. Furthermore, I noticed that ai can buy more starting items with their available gold, like bracer + 3 branches + 2 pot.....

    >>they are ai so they could not adopt to sudden change of circumstances so their starting items make for it.

    c) As of now, ai can buy all their items from the fountain, including void stone etc. Make them visit the sideshops and secret shops instead.
    >> so you want them to buy using crows?? Protects the ai from stupid ganks..

    d) Improve the standard of all ai heroes.

    >>duh, how many heroes are there?? if you make a good ai for all of them then it would take more than a year and by then, the ai would be absolutely obsolete

    Keep Rockin guys!! you ai ganking abilities have exceeded the standard set by Cloud_str.

    All hail PBMN team!!

  24. so by saying 6.71 and 6.72, u mean releasing it at the same time?

    Thanks for your effor PBMN and team :)

    i wonder where did Harrake(did i spell that correctly?) gone to?

    All the best.

  25. Greets PBMN! I'am a programmer and I'am imagine how difficult to implement AI, especially in a "game" like DotA, this is really hard to make a good AI. I like that map and I wish you all the good what I know ;) In addition to Wilkin's words (and others) I can say that - AI's sometimes use their TP scrolls incorrectly, they interrupt teleporting and then walk to fountain/destination point, I notice that used TP scroll returned to them when this appears. The second is a idea - may be more item-builds ? Dynamic builds (can change during the game) ?

    Anyway, You done great work, I hope your AI will be best in the near future. GL !

    PS : I notice that -ld mode dont work in the 6.70c version.

    // Waiting For -cm Mode
