Next version will still be 0.213

I had some experimental AI scripts for Admiral and Clockwerk in the pipeline, but I haven't been able to focus too much on this recently and in the interest of releasing 6.65 AI as soon as possible, I'll probably hold off on this stuff for now.

IceFrog has sent me the script changes and I've been slowly integrating them. I'm aiming to release by the end of this month.

Thanks for your patience.

i think this version of ai should wait a bit..since the new heroes needs some balance..

ps..first comment

Mr. Kawtim said...

Yeay, new ai map is coming out soon.

Andrej said...

Make BatRider play the game and use skills.
Make Tauren Chieftain use his skills.
Make Techies use skills as he should instead planting in base.
If possible make new heroes to use their skills too.
Do anything to make AI better.

Francisco Vanderlinde said...

man, honestly, i think its better to make an ai for all heroes that need one, make a remake in their item and skill builds andfix all bugs... as well as making modes like -rd and -cm playable. i could wait 3 months if you make that stuff =D

Tezka said...

U BETTER RELEASE IT SOON, OR ELSE OTHER PLAYER OF DOTA WILL STOP PLAYING ON 6.65 MAP. THEY CANT MAKE STRATEGY ON A MAP WITH NO ENEMIES TO FIGHT.. WEW!

Dwayne said...

hey man take ur time, dont listen to these impatient mofos here. do things right the first time so u dont gotta do it again! we'll be looking forward to the map at month end so keep up the good work man!!:D

Shin.Vodk4 said...

agree with vanishing, there should be 6.65b for balancing :)

yay, AI for new heroes, sound great.

*thumbs up*

@Tezka... AIs have been around only for the late 6.xx series of DotA maps...

soo... if ppl stop playing, then how come there's always more?

oh wait... DotA is multiplayer game... /facepalm


@Buffmeplz:

ty for your work men, as always.

x1_alphalapd said...

yes bmp...just take ur time..i would rather wait long time for a good ai map....

Hung said...

AI really stupid and have many bugs, but I'm love you BFP because of your work and the AI map now is good enough, if you have more time in the furture then you can make the map better.
p/s: sorry for my terrible English

Hung said...

I think you should make some more command like ask AI to buy Carrier, and also I really need the -so mode.
p/s: sorry for my bad English again, and sorry because I call you BFP, my bad, bmp :D

Abdul Jabbar said...

just take ur time man.
i think u should wait for the 6.65b comeout because of the balance.
the most important thing is the map qualitiy,not the speed of the map release.

*thumbs up*

You're the greatest.
Keeping your subscribers/fans updated.

.Uwe said...

well... i dont think there would be much balance... only a buff in new visage... nothing more, IMO

Phoenix said...

Waiting for the old awesome AIs to be back... I don't like 0.213 :(

Filip said...

make AI do not pick heroes he can't play with...like gondar, techie, troll and some others

BuffMePlz said...

I understand that a lot of people would prefer me to take the extra time to improve the scripts for individual heroes, but I think there exists a greater demand for a release of a version in which you can play with the new content against bots that mostly work.

As they say in the industry, "shipping is a feature", and though I'd love to take as much time as I need between releases and work at my own schedule, I think it would be more beneficial to the community to release an updated version sooner rather than later.

I've been choosing to update by each version, something previous AI makers chose not to. In the past, only the stable version would have an AI, and releases would coincide with when maps were made stable and ONLY when they were...I think the approach I make is a bit more compromising, but as the word "compromising" implies, I can't give everybody what they want. =/

Kant said...

Thx BMP. Good Luck!

S.Aratato said...

Good luck with it, BMP~!

Christoph said...

Thx alot BMP!

Your updates are really appreciated and (personally) I think that updates for all versions are better than new features!

febrian said...

to Buffmeplz :
you could always ask ppl to help if you need sum help you know.... you can share the burden....

to all others:
have some patience brother....

ShotokanTuning said...

Hi BMP,

I think you could actually explore your work on Admiral and Clockwerk and fit it in for your next release, because there is a huge chance the new heroes will get rebalanced pretty soon, which means your new AI won't really be that useful anymore (since people are dying to use the new heroes, but they soon wouldn't even be accurate, in what is probably a very short time).

It could work better for you, if you can skip a version and have some fun exploring your new idea.

It's up to you of course. It's always good to read from you BMP!

Greets,
ST

Ronilo said...

pls make AI heroes complete their item build. when they are lvl 25, all they get are few of their core items, ex. centeur warchief only have a dagger, radiance, helm, and a few bracers. thats why sometimes theyre boring to play with and they are always fed...

Hung said...

If it's easy to update the AI to the new version, I'd like new version than new feature.
But it's depend on you bmp. Thank for your work.
p/s: sorry for my bad English once again.

iruel said...

maybe you need release old AI or Alpha release,it's for the testing our new heroes, it makes we more know how to playing the new heroes

www.getdota.tw said...

I wonder if u could make 6v6 AI.Lol:)

ارشان خاني فر said...

hi
can u create tree tAg best edition ai for me???

khoai said...

I Think about Fun taven :))

David said...

I think the decision to just port the current AI to the new DotA version is the correct one.

Thanks for all your work BuffMePlz, and please ignore these lame comments on how everything should "get fixed ASAP" :-).

Tezka said...

@dwaye and call me kenneth! ive been playing dota since 6.62 up to 6.64 and still nothing change, some heroes from the older version is much more better and skillful than the new one, i guess they only change heroes skill on those not so recently seen on the battle fight, then on those always used by players are being stuck on what they have or rather i say "nothing change" and sometimes rather to improve it becomes more noob. dont tell me you both didnt notice that? what im trying to say is if they can make things done more faster please do it so, not being took so long and in the end it will end up like the other AI version. to both of you dont poof a message like that again, just put a comment and dont mention a name because it doesnt make sense and next time whatever both of you say,,it has nothing to do with me. lets just wait for the new map.

.Uwe said...

6.66 is out...

Andrej said...

6.66 is out so don't make 6.65.
Proceed to 6.66
