DotA v6.72f AI 1.0 "NIGHTMARE"

Greetings! Welcome to the latest official AI DotA custom map.

NIGHTMARE ... massive official map changes, too many broken skills, too many systems completely rewritten, too much caffeine, too many new AI heroes added... This map was an equal nightmare and a new hope for a better times. We should all thank the AITeam and Cloud_str for devoting those months so you all can enjoy that fine map. In some words the biggest changes are: -captains mode active (AI will pick and ban), all heroes got AI now, completely rewritten defense mechanism, item buying system, new gank system and so many other changes... that you`ll have to read the whole changelog to find them.. although many of the changes are invisible for you but they are in the code.. believe me And again: thank Cloud_str for all that as i was away most of the time and the AITeam testers who endured all those painful testing hours! They deserve it!
What is AI 1.0 - we plan to release a more BMP style incremental releases which will include only AI code changes. We will change only the AI numbers in those incremental revisions.

Enjoy DotA v6.72f AI, codenamed NIGHTMARE!

Note: Chinese couldn`t use my links and looking their download count here on the forums... they might be put on #1 place. Also those stats doesn`t include mediafire and other links (only main links), so this is just an estimated example of country downloads for the first 3 months prior 6.71b`s release.

DotA 6.72f AI release delayed

Hello, again.
We discussed the release with Cloud_str and we came to conclusion that we need a little more developing time. During that time, many heroes will get their long anticipated AI, so i guess at the end the long waiting will be rewarded.
Basically the good news outbid the bad news of the delay: we get more AI for the heroes, bugs get fixed and skill usages get refined. Cloud_Str is a coding machine :) and every dev day means new amazing things and possibilities in the DotA AI world. Stay tuned... the release is definitely coming!!!

Steve Jobs, 1955 - 2011

"There may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented," - B. Obama

3 Apples changed the World, 1-st one seduced Eve, 2-nd fell on Newton and the 3-rd was offered to the World half bitten by Steve Jobs! (random Twitter quote)

Hi, guys. Long time no see. If things work out good we may release the map next week. Loads of things changed, so more incremental releases may follow in short time with bugfixes and new AI additions.
