Can you beat the new and improved Reinhardt bot in a "fair" 1v1?
The bot has a winning record against multiple OWL main tank players. No video intro this time, I would imagine it's more fun for the players to challenge the bot without knowing how the bot will react to your moves and make decisions.

Press Crouch to change the Mode (only works while the game mode is not active)
Main mode: Reinhardt Duel
The player and the Reinhardt bot play by the same rules:
Fire Strike cooldown 35%
Charge cooldown 70%
21% per Swing
29% per Fire Strike
90% per Pin
You can use this workshop mode to try to learn and master these techniques and principles:
Long range swings (corner swings)
Not using Firestrike when the enemy has Shatter
Not using Charge when the enemy has Shatter
Not being too close when the enemy has Shatter so you can still block it and use long range swings to get hits in
Improve your reaction time to block Shatters
Improve your counter Charge reaction time
Getting more comfortable of being in close melee combat
The bot has a unreal reaction time and the mode is not meant to simulate a 100% realistic situation, if the bot would have realistic reaction times it would be too easy for the players to beat the bot. In it's current form it is possible to beat the bot (without exploiting) if you don't make mistakes and kind of understand the bots way of playing the game. Here is a screenshot of LhCloudy (LA Gladiators) beating the released version of the bot in a first to 20 kill match.
Extra mode: Earthshatter Blocking Practice
The bot will use Earthshatter in random intervals and you can practice blocking them in different distances.
Extra mode: Corner Swing Practice
The bot has really good corner swings, the swings have a reach close to max range but the movement tempo of the bot is a bit off, if you can hang in there with the bot you know you are getting around max range for each of your swings, if you can consistently beat the bot in a "ranged hammer fight" you are a Reinhardt corner swing god.

Special thanks to LhCloudy for beating up the bot and giving me good ideas on how to make the bot harder to beat.
