The bots aren't that dumb. I mean, sure, you can probably pull that off against typical MMO mob AI, but that's spectacularly dumb. Bots with the stats of RoS bots would be resolved like humans: 'make an IQ or tactics roll to decide what to do'. Yes, bots are sometimes gonna fail and be indecisive. So will humans.
