And just to make sure everybody caught it, our goal was no explicitly harder bots -- they're smarter about the game but the difficulty should be in around the same area. We actually had to tone a few bots back to ensure that we kept things from getting out of hand (Tristana bot quadrakilling being the clearest example).
If that is the case, are there plans for a harder mode with champs like the tristana? As I mentioned as far as switching lanes late game/team fights the bots just don't do it, they trickle in one at a time instead of as a group, they don't jungle while waiting for other bots to gather etc.
@ the question about demand, definitely at lower lvls and lvl 30. I actually consider it an issue at below 30 that's killing the competitive side.
