Okay well to recreate it go into a custom match and add the bots, then ingame kick them all. It will open the spots for players but the bots will still be there so once players join it's a match like in the video.

I saw this on a YouTube comment and posting it here for the person who asked.


Message To Developers:
Blizzard, please turn this bug into a fully functional gamemode along with new 12v12 compatible maps (or enlarged versions of existing maps for 12v12)!

how is this possible?

Blizzard, please add this as a gamemode and along with 12v12 compatible maps (or enlarged maps for 12v12)!

I think we might get this down the road but not anytime soon.
Feel like we need more heroes.
could be interesting, but only if you make 12v12 maps

bastion war from the bastion flashback :D

I don't think we need more heroes for a 12v12 gamemode to be added. For example, there are 25 heroes in the game. If the 12v12 gamemode has hero limits, than the number of heroes that are not being played by one team would be 13. You can switch to one of 13 other heroes when you die. Doesn't seem too bad.

11 Genji's all spamming "I need healing" who are always at all times out of line of sight and are always somehow behind enemy lines.

And they blame you for dying, of course

Thought she would overload and explode with that d.va feeding her hard.
Yes please. I made a thread on this a few days ago and most said they would want this. It would be chaos. It would be unbalanced. It would be hectic. It would be fun.

It would give a place for people who want to just jump in a game, play their favorite hero and get just... Play. To practice their heroes. To be a %#%%*!@# if they wanted. It would benefit the community.
omg this NEEDS to be a thing!!!!
Was that in quick play or custom game?

Custom game. It has bots
Please Blizzard, make this an arcade mode.

This.

And who the hell CARES about maps size/balance?

This would obviously be an arcade/custom mode so it could be utter insanity and it wouldn't matter one bit. :)
