I just wanted to get some finality on these answers… I think it’s pretty clear but as of 1.30.2 are ALL bots going to be shut down and unable to be used? I appreciate what blizzard is going for, but the whole tying hosting to one person and being able to ban seems like an issue.
My DotA clan of over 150 people on US East has been running tournaments and league games for years now, but without stat collection, ongoing bans/kick history there is almost no reason to stay. I don’t WANT to leave for a private server but if they are not replacing it with something viable we have no choice.
I am not trying to be a petulant child, I just want clarity so I know whether or not to make contingency plans for the group and move elsewhere, since without stats to upload to our website, and other tracking it’s kind of useless…
