Doom Bots of Doom Enabled for Testing

Doom Bots of Doom is now enabled for PBE testing! In case you missed the announcement, check out our 10/4 PBE coverage or this post for more info on the modes return and changes.

Here's Riot Stephiroth with a bugs & feedback thread for Doom Bots of Doom!
"The wind howls through the trees, carrying through an air of mystery and slight terror... 
Greetings, Summoners! 
Prepare yourselves for the ultimate Doom of your lives! Doom Bots: The Teemoing is hitting PBE! 
The Teemoing will be our fixed difficulty version of the mode. This version does not have the difficulty voting. However, it has all of the same crazy content as The Gauntlet version of the mode! :) 
There are lot of complexities on the mode, but if you see issues with the following, please report them here or via the Bug Reporting Tool: 
  • Evil Boss does not path properly/does not attack targets/etc
  • Bots do not properly path/attack targets
  • Curses do not work properly
  • Game crashes! (PLEASE submit your bugsplats! <3) 
We have a few known bugs currently with the mode:
  • Ryze Warp Curse has a slightly higher rate of spawn than normal -- We may keep this though if it's fun :) So let us know what you think!
  • This version may be slightly less difficult than intended! We ran into an issue where the bots aren't quite as buff as intended, so we're working on that. Expect Bot buffs tomorrow :D
  • Some Curses may be missing sounds!
  • There may be some performance issues with the mode! If you run into performance issues, please let us know and post your DXDiag!
As always, any feedback you have is also welcome here! :) Hit us with it! 
You should expect to see The Gauntlet version of the mode active within the next day or so.  
Happy hunting!"
[Stephiroth noted that the customizable difficulty should hit PBE in next few days.]
