    I am introducing my new series of Bot-Battles. The teams consits only of one class. On symmetrical maps this results in 81 class-combinations, on non-symmetrical maps in 162. I will use only maps with navigation meshes (reference post on steam forums) Also I am participating in one team.

    The first one is "koth_badlands"
    Scout+me vs. Scout
    Go to Youtube
    More will come!

    (All voices are in german, but this is no that relevant for gameplay, I think)

    What exactly am i supposed to look at? It's not a spectacular showoff from your side, and you're playing against bots, which is a guaranteed boner-killer.

    In short: It's lacking content. There is no interesting commentary, gameplay or opponents.

    The question is what do you give to the viewer? Are there any interest to watch bot battles or would TF2 fans rather watch something else. Is there any demand to this kind of videos?

    No demand without supply. As it seems there is no one who did that before. I am interested in bot behaviour and therefore I do this experiments. The only addition is that I record this and post it on youtube. Yo do not have to watch it, no one forces you.

    You came here to advertise it to us, and as such we expect that this is because you WANT people to watch it.
    Therefore, it's only natural that we give you some feedback that can help you get more views.

    Take it or leave it. I don't really care.

    The only interest I'd have in this is if you made the bots do dumb challenges. Like that scene at the end of Shaun of the Dead where they have all the zombies racing towards the meat at the end of a mud pit. Whereas with tf2 lets players, we can see special routes to use against actual enemies, and rocket jumps.

    This isn't exactly rocket science of a subject. The bots are unusually dumb in that they have the most basic AI you could imagine. They also fire using an aimbot (like sentries). Their difficulty appears to be simply a delay in the time between when they see you and when they decide to start shooting at you.

    Very few people enjoy playing against bots and only a few more tolerate bots in a semi-populated server so i imagine there's very little demand for people to watch someone killing bots as it's not particularly interesting gameplay.

    I'd like to see Spy vs Spy and Engineer vs Engineer. They must be hilarious.

    SENTRIES EVERYWHERE.
    They build full level 3 bases even in KotH maps.
    It will be a stalemate match.

    About spies, it will be like watching completely fake copies of every single bot that is on your team.

    It will be the funniest thing I've ever watched since Bayformers. Nonsense.
