So, this patch seems to be causing A LOT of disconnects for some reason — which also has the sad net effect of us seeing a lot of AIs.
The AIs seem particularly bad at figuring out where it needs to be — once you click it, it immediately ports and then goes to where ever you are.
After that, you’re lucky if the AI continues to follow you around.
The only semi-reliable way to get the AI to do what you want is to ping what you want it to do (camps, objectives, heroes, etc). Otherwise, it will often walk around in circles, literally.
Additionally the Smart Ping is acting dumb. This has been a thing for a long time. It often takes several pings to get the right one. A really nice temp fix that would pull a lot of pressure of this problem is to allow users to preset the default action of the smart ping. As it stands now, with the AI being flakey, it’s calling out attention to problems with both systems.
