Let’s be frank, the boys are just bad. After a decent amount of time playing the game in it’s final state it makes me wonder how we got here.
After playing private Incursions matches for a good while iv seen an array of nonsense I never experienced in this game before. Besides the obvious aim bot programming we see some ally bots who will literally not even run past the middle of the map on Overgrowth. Some bots will Horde shards and run circles around your base then stand by a wall doing nothing.
There are also a list of character spicific issues.
Kid Ultra uses his ult on CD and then simply deactivates.
Bolder dose literally nothing but collect shards and occasionally buy a buildable.
Atikkus will cancel his own ult.
Alani can see people though walls and cast her Geyser though walls.
Klesse can see people though walls and place energy rifts though walls.
Ambra can see player though walls and place Sun spots though walls.
(Several other character bots can do similar placements though solid walls or geometry)
Ernest will oddly always look to put his Power Egg on enemy rendering it useless.
Bots always seem to prioritize buildable items even at the cost of their own lives. In Incursion Bots will frequently run straight up to enemy Sentries if it means attacking a low health enemy. Bots will run to a random corner when brought to low health even when an escape path is wide open.
In reality these bots are well very poorly programmed. I understand the focus was on a PVP based game but people asked for bot battle since launch. Why didn’t the team focus on making Bot Battle a thing with competent and challenging bots.
