So how intelligent were troodontids?

I never believed that the size of the brain had an impact on the
intelligence, since most of the brain is used to control the body, not to
off course with a brain the size of golf ball, it would be a rather
instinctive animal (I hate it when somebody calls a dino stupid).
But group hunters like nychus and raptor surely needed to be rather smart.

A lot of people (probably not on the list) on this planet seem to forget
that intelligence will only evolve when it's needed. Mankind needed its
intelligence since it was such a weak animal, and without being able to
manipulate its environment the homo-genus would have been exstinct.
