Today we’re going to be randomly selecting normal games to test our new Advanced Bot AI. You can expect these state-of-the-art bots to be ultra-realistic, and—due to advanced machine-learning techniques—capable of developing their own distinct personalities and playing styles. Please play your best against the bots, since they will be learning about play patterns in real-time.
AFK penalties will still apply, so please don’t ragequit. You’ll receive an exclusive icon for finishing one of these games before April 2, 2017, at 11:59 PM PDT. (Icons can take a few weeks to appear in your account.)
Please keep in mind that Advanced Bots are still in alpha testing and may act unpredictably. We appreciate your patience as we iron out the bugs. If you’re interested in learning more about our bots, please refer to our dev blog here.
