After going on auto and watching the AI in Bounties several times it is apparent just how bad the AI truly is in this game. They don’t even try to maximize hero skills, will waste so much time running between cover, and will make very poor decisions overall. It makes them nearly worthless.
I watched Yaeger crouch down behind cover no less than three times while his Archangel buff was going. There was no need to do it once, let alone three times since there is no reason to reload with this ability up. Dog will use his silver, unload it all, THEN use his bronze. He wastes dozens of shots by not timing and stacking them correctly, not to mention a HUGE amount of damage wasted. Astrix will use her Boomerang on heroes with less hp than a single tick of her ability does in damage.
Meanwhile in PVP the AI will just randomly target whatever hero they want and won’t help focus down anyone until you get them low enough. The support heroes are actually decent because they use abilities that only require a one time use on a low health aly. This is something the AI can handle. In Bounties though, they will waste time topping off other heroes who are barely hurt instead of doing damage.
Then you have the whole issue with invisible heroes. Poor AI is why Mandrake is so powerful. The AI go full on idiot mode and won’t even attempt to attack an invisible hero. I understand the AI can’t be perfect and a human controlled hero should be better, but why not make it so they at least target an invis hero at least 30% of the time? Or use their abilities at least at 50%+ efficiency? Or actually help focus a herop when they are at 70% hp?
