What is Bot TI?
The third Bot TI will be a showmatch like its predecessors: five-on-five between two groups of five identical heroes. For an example, in last year's edition a group of five raging Pangoliers went beserk against a flock of five Earthshakers in the Grand Finals. The year before that, Elder Titan stomped his path to victory. This year, there are more heroes available so a newcomer might take the throne.
The teams consist of the heroes with the highest win rate according to DOTABUFF. The Bots will then fight their way through a best-of-three-bracket, peaking in the Grand Finals which determine which hero is the best in the game – or at least the best Bot.
Apart from the general robot-versus-robot combats, BTS also includes some special rules like a gold budget at a specific level or bots being equipped with three Ironwood Branches at level five. So let's see which particularities the organisers have come up with this year.. To get a better understanding of the Bot TI concept, check out the video below.
