So after 3 days of losing to 3's vs. intermediate bots, my wife, friend and I (all new to LoL) learn that intermediate bots have 15 points of mastery, 16 runes, a tier 2 quintessence and a passive bonus to gold gain.
In the grand scheme of things, are these bots supposed to be moderately difficult or are we just underperforming?
I know a lot of the snowballing can be credited to early feeding since we're still learning character abilities and dying to things we could've better anticipated if we knew the opponent's skill set.
What level are you? I haven't played in a long time, but the last time we played against intermediate bots, we shit all over them every single time. -- A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have. -MLK
We're just level 6/7 since it's only been a couple nights since we've started. We were completely winning the early game but always seem to get some deaths after lvl 6 to ultimate combos. Just the kinda stuff you learn to look out for once you know more character's ability sets really.
Add "JobbieSC" to your friends list, I have a low level account at that range, we can get on skype a talk some of the basics and advanced tactics and get you guys started. -- Judge a man by the trials of his shield, not the empty reaping of his sword.
I forget my low levels name (panpizza maybe?), but am always down to play and help someone build up.
@Eumaeus: Try to get out of the Bot games soon. They don't play like real people do. Go into matches with other people, get shit on, and learn that way. It's no biggie. If someone rages, just click next to their name in chat and mute them. It's fun!
@Jobbie: This weekend I'm installing new flooring at the house. I won't be available. Will probably be on tonight for a game or two. -- Play DSLr Mafia: »Pub Games
Annie bot cheats. She drops all her stuff on you in ~1 sec.
All of the bots cheat. They teleport all over the map and they use their abilities with much lower cooldowns than a player would. If you push a tower solo, you can almost guarantee that three bots will step out of the jungle and melt you down. Also, they chain their slows and stuns in perfect harmony, one right after another. Despite all that, they play defensively, so you really have to work at it to lose a bot match. The only time they are aggressive is when someone is at low health, and they will then chase you all the way back to your base, so it's really easy to set up ambushes and milk the kill totals. -- Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty - Ronald Reagan
Played my first two ranked games of the season last night. Am now 1 and 1. First game I went Cait (Surprise Surprise), and came out positive, but the team lost. I did what I could. Mid lane lost at the 10 minute mark. Top shortly thereafter. I lost bot to a 4 man rush (stayed alive though), and took out enemy bot immediately after it. They were coordinated, and my team just could not stop going out to push lanes alone. Gank after gank after gank. Nothing I could do.
2nd game I played Ryze mid. That peanut head is freaking awesome. Built him tanky. Even enemy Mundo didn't stand a chance.
I'm liking the ranked games. People are much better. I was always afraid to play them because I didn't want to get serious about the game, like forty and block.
I have to admit, it is fun to switch it up for a serious game once and a while. Never did see Jobbie on, but I had to stop playing around 11PM EST to get in some Dead Space 3 co-op. -- Play DSLr Mafia: »Pub Games
Ranked is nice because its draft plus people GENERALLY place their best stuff.
I only have 2 games to judge, but there was 100% less raging, 50% more warding, and 75% more coordination than in normal ranked. I'll be playing more of these for sure in the future. -- Play DSLr Mafia: »Pub Games
Raging will show up if you are losing. Its inveitable.
Some people will not ward and that dude that doesn't play support in ranked but is forced to will play a solo lane champ take cs and not ward. Dont worry the community you know and love plays ranked too lol.
