"It's been a long time coming.. they've been lurking... waiting... to be summoned... ..here comes the Doom Bots of Doom!
We'll be enabling them on the PBE soon(tm), and eventually they'll go into the RGM rotation. A LOT has changed from last time though, so I'll get straight to it.
Battle against the Doom Bots of Doom on an extra spooky Summoner's Rift in this survival style game mode.
Doom Bots will rush your lanes relentlessly. Survive!
Try to survive for 15 minutes until the Evil Overlord of the Doom Bots is summoned.
Defeat him to win the game!
Lose your nexus and be doomed forever...
Other gameplay notes:
Doom bots don't go back to shop or heal, but when they do die they'll be back in lane before you know it.
The map has been cut in half so we could double down on the doom.
Enemy towers are invulnerable. Don't bother trying to push.
In the event you manage to suicide some minions into an enemy tower, you'll receive burst of HP/mana for some sustain.
Upon breaking certain kill 'quest' thresholds, your team will receive a boost in power. Work together to get kills and power up in time.
The Doom Bots roster:
Our bot roster has dramatically increased from last time! We have:
Curses are global buffs that effect every Doom Bot (or the map itself). They rotate in randomly every few minutes and give the bots a variety of familiar (but scary) powers:
Giga Blinding Dart
Brush Fire :)
Electrified Turrets :)
Devilish Duplicates :)
the Doom Bots' Evil Overlord:
He who shall not be named..
Custom difficulty in "The Gauntlet" mode:
In "The Gauntlet", we're letting YOU set the difficulty and choose how hard you want the Doom Bots to be when challenging them.
Set a custom Doom Bots difficult from 1 - 100 at the start of the game to modify your Doom Bots.
Use the chat command "/votelevel ##" and have 3 or more players vote for the same difficulty level to lock it in. (EG: /votelevel 65)
If a difficulty is not agreed on and voted for within 90sec, the mode will randomise a difficulty level.
On completion, your match history will show what level you completed as PROOF of your accomplishment (or demise).
We're interested to see what the highest level that any players in the WORLD can complete.
There will be an icon after the event for players that complete some of the highest possible levels compared to anyone else in the world. Get your squad together and see how far you can go. :)
Mode not yet fully optimised. Might be some particle slow down on lower end machines.
Summoning ceremony still missing SFX.
Given the amount of content in Doom Bots, we expect there's probably quite a few bugs still lurking in there. Any help from you PBE peeps is always appreciated to catch those hard to find bugs. Thanks as always everyone.
Now go get doomed. :)
"The Teemoing has begun!"
"Destroy Devil Teemo to stop The Teemoing!"
