    Hello everyone,

    I am about to launch a crowdfunding campaign to create a Bot API. This Bot API can be used to create better Practice bots. Especially now this is useful since the new patch seems to have messed up the built-in bots.

    You can already check out the draft here.

    ( copy paste link: https://www.indiegogo.com/project/preview/f607f206#/ )

    I am open for adding more perks, so if you have any suggestions let me know.

    If you have any questions, ask them here so I can add them to a FAQ ( I will ofc answer them here as well)

    When you want to practice a hero before ruining rank matchmaking?

    If the bots are great than it might even be a better experience.

    With proper application of a well built deep learning algorithm with professional games fed in as data, a bot could probably be far superior to most players.

    Btw you should really make a github repo if you want actual developers to care.
