OpenAI’s Bots Just Beat Professional DotA 2 Players


Miraculously in game three the humans did manage to win, but it was a grind to pull off and they were already left demoralized by their crushing defeat.

The bot technology of OpenAI has reached a point where it can now destroy a team of highly skilled, former professional, Dota 2 players - in a match that wasn't even close.

In a three-game series, OpenAI Five won the first two games comprehensively.

The latest victory for OpenAI Five is a positive step towards the firm's goal of competing against the best proteamat The International which is the largest annual Dota tournament in the world.

OpenAI Five will take on an active professional team during the global main event in August 2018. To recall, in June this year, OpenAI Five beat an amateur team. "This reaction time is much closer to human level, though we haven't seen evidence of changes in gameplay as OpenAI Five's strength comes more from teamwork and coordination than reflexes". In the third match, the Twitch chat audience chose the worst combination of heroes for the bots to play and the A.I. predicted a 2.9% chance to win.
