The Secret Lives of Couriers

Description
Ever wondered what couriers do when you're not paying attention? While you assumed heroes were the ones doing all the thinking, the truth is they are mere puppets and couriers have been pulling the strings of fate all along. Finally you can taste true power by playing the coveted ancient role of the courier!

Lead five idiots to victory by buying them items, nudging them in the right direction and even outright taking over the controls to show them how it's done.

  • Players: 2 (1v1)
  • Game Length: 5-30 minutes

Thanks:
First of all, I'd like thank the people who have actively contributed to this mod: Viper (made bots use items and abilities when pinged, made the mind control ability work through a modifier), Flam3s (made the drafting UI), Darko (bug reports, suggestions).

Also, to all the good people frequenting the moddota discord[discord.gg], thank you. Your help has been invaluable. Special thanks to Noya, BMD and Darkonius for making and maintaining the libraries this mod depends on.

Yeah it's the AI. I'll try to see if there's anything I can do. It's not something that can be fixed by restarting.

Some bots stay afk at spawn even after restarting several times

Seems like some hero AIs have stopped working. Will look into it. Let me know if you've noticed any other bugs Party Poison!

Kaps,

"It's becaue of Aghanim blessing, after I give it to one bot other items do now work at all."

I tried it and everything seems to work fine. Hmm...

"after 20 kills only 1 or 2 bots buyback, others just stay dead with 1 sec respawn, and do not buyback. "

It's probably because they ran out of gold. Increase the bot "gold gain" during the drafting phase to prolong the game.

Hey Naurgul

I found out one thing, do you remember i was talking about in late game given items do not work?
It's becaue of Aghanim blessing, after I give it to one bot other items do now work at all. Which is strange. Try it.

New mode is a really cool man! But it's a bit buggy, after 20 kills only 1 or 2 bots buyback, others just stay dead with 1 sec respawn, and do not buyback.

Thank you so much!

Kaps,

"please make ARDM with more kill counts"

Just added a new mode that does that. Hope you like it.

"Please make bots harder, because they are too dumb"

Like I said, I can't make them smarter. If you want to make the game harder, try increasing the bots' gold gain (the option appears during drafting).

Hey Naurgul

Please make bots harder, because they are too dumb

And please make ARDM with more kill counts, I understand that you wrote before about it. But is it possible to make more kill counts?

Killamoocow, sure, why not. I just made a server: https://discord.gg/zNjY7KzKNe
