So for my hero map I have added in computers and such and tested having all 8 computers playing and me being an observer and when the timer expired and they were "picking" their heroes I got a massive lag spike. I've tried putting in a single computer and there's a bit there too. Also a lil bit when I pick one myself.

The first trigger is for the computer players and is triggered by a separate trigger that is triggered by an elapsed time trigger. The bottom 2 are for when a hero picks a hero where the first one triggers the second one.

Would doing something like this work better do you think?

  • Hero Type
    • Events
      • Map initialization
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Set HeroType[1] = Blood Elf Champion
      • Set HeroType[2] = Sealed Python
      • Set HeroType[3] = Crystal Lord
      • Set HeroType[4] = Flower Dryad
      • Set HeroType[5] = Nerubian Mauler
      • Set HeroType[6] = Goblin Gunner
      • Set HeroType[7] = Soul Devourer
      • Set HeroType[8] = Overqueen
      • Set HeroType[9] = Ogre Gladiator

Not sure if this is what you meant but this is what I've got now and the lag spike seemed to be worse!!

The trigger arrays are there to turn on the triggers to make them learn spells. I had to add in a trigger which ended up basically being like the original to get them to learn their first spell and to add them into a group for their primary attribute as that's used for items. That trigger is here:

  • AI Learn First Spell

          • Unit Group - Add TempUnit to HeroStr
        • Else - Actions

            • If - Conditions
