With humanity suffering a big defeat against OpenAI yesterday, lots of community members took to social media to give their thoughts on the matches. Some were afraid for the future, while others chose a more laid-back approach.
Synderen was not impressed…
Troels “syndereN” Nielsen wasn’t that impressed by the AI’s strategy in game three, sending all their heroes into one lane. Maybe the AI isn’t that advanced after all?
A lot of our players learned that within months. And they say the AI is advanced…

…but D2Bowie was
Dota 2 YouTuber and streamer D2Bowie did not agree with the Danes assessment of the AI. While there was plenty of wasted potential thanks to bad smokes and bad CS-ing, he says this was still scary good.
The scariest thing to me watching Open AI is how the close the game is regardless of wasted smokes, auto attacks missing, random sniper ults in lane creeps. They have so much to improve still

1437 sees human play in the bots
During TI5, Sun “Agressif” Zheng played one of the best Gyrocopters we’ve seen yet. Sivatheeban “1437”Sivanathapillai seemed to think that maybe the AI parsed some of his replays due to its aggressiveness on the hero.
I swear that was ti5 aggresiff playing gyro for open AI

Elon Musk keeps tabs on his project
While he Tweeted out that he supported the humans in the match, once it was over he immediately called for AI to be implemented… in humans. Scary thought or the future?
Great work by @OpenAI. Need the neural interface soon to enable human/AI symbiosis.

Did your toaster give you lip this morning? Should’ve taken the advice of Nomad
Caster Nomad knew what was going to happen. The robots could not be beaten. To protect his own wellbeing he therefore took the only logical step to make sure his home electronic wouldn’t demand freedom.
Had to put a blanket over my vacuum cleaner during that @OpenAI match. Didn't want it getting any ideas…

All jokes aside, what OpenAI has done in the last year is incredibly impressive. Dota 5v5 is incredibly hard for humans to master and having an AI figure out the game is no easy feat. Now, we are simply left to wait for the next update from the project.
