Post tutorial RSS Battle.net Host Bot

I've noticed quite a few people having trouble getting the host bot to work from looking at server logs. There are currently in game instructions in the chat channel BTT and in the game lobby after hosting. I will explain further here.

1. Log on to Battle.net U.S. East, or Europe

4. After joining you will see this:

WC3ScrnShot 091816 223958 02

Here you will be greeted by a list of commands:

!start - Begins the game

!comp X X - This adds a computer player. For example to add an insane computer to slot 2 you would type !comp 2 2

!comprace RACE - Change the computer race. For example to set to Orc type !comprace orc

!comptteam X X - This allows you to set the team of a computer player. For example to change the computer in slot 2 to team 2 you would type !compteam 2 2

NOTE: By default the computer will be team 1, your team. If you do not change the team the game will end immediately after starting.

!unhost - Cancel the game.
