What determines which enemy a non player hero targets?

As title says - why sometimes do bots target an elemental disadvantage hero, and Other times not?


Good question. Some hero’s taunt but besides that, I’m looking forward to reading some of the answers.

From my observed experiences, the AIs seem to target the opponents who stand on covers MORE than the ones who hide behind the covers.

For example, my Heimlock gets damaged faster in my pvp team because he stands and attack immediately when all characters reach to their positions in the start of the pvp battle.

Not only Heimlock stands up immediately, but all my frontline characters stand up fast taking damage first, being the frequent target of AIs. That includes Gammond, mandrake, Razorback, Cast etc.

It seems to me that they target the closest standing hero, regardless of their element.
