Idea/Suggestion Type:
Substitutions
Description:
If the last slot in a lobby is empty for a long time (say 20 mins to half an hour, rough estimate) an expert TFBot could be summoned to cover the slot instead, by lobby leader's choice (don't allow this choice immediately, only after a long time has passed)
Pros/Cons:
Pros:
Shorter waiting times for Highlander and 6v6
Medic bots can be called and told exactly when to uber with voice commands
Bots focus on the job in general, always ready

Cons:
Potentially as bad as a newbie competitive player in certain classes (ex. Engineer, sometimes Medic)
Definitely unsuitable for Ultiduo
Locked to default loadout unless an external plugin gives them weapons
As an addendum to the above, non-stock weapons can be used properly in competitive only by humans

Lol.

 

You do know having a playing bot is way out of our league. TF2 itself handles and codes bots. There is no way that can be feasible. Sorry.


It's been fun, thanks for the ride.

Didn't you read the title? "Expert TFBot replacement", which means "A tf2 bot on expert difficulty replacement". I didn't ask you to code a new one. TFBot is just the name of the bots for tf2.

 

If you want an example of their usage, TF2's comp matchmaking. If you still don't wanna go with the idea I don't mind, but don't misinterpret it so hard.

It doesn't work like that. TF2 bots won't be smart enough to recognize what to do on custom maps such as product and basically all other competitive maps. Med popping after a player calls is already in the game, but following other commands is almost impossible, you might as well have 1 less player on your team and do just as well.


It's been fun, thanks for the ride.
