I mean honestly, I realize that riot is small, but really? and I really am not trying to start anything, but with the downtime, and now this, hell three days into the game and it looks like they don't really want new players, because I have seen where this road goes, and they wont make many friends if they don't play nice with the rest of the kids. F.Y.I. I did vote for this game to win, and I did it because I think it is a great game, I just wish I could play it hahaha
You're just turning a blind eye to other factors :P
Sure, a minimum of 4 human players. But the moment the restrictions go up, you'll imidiately start to see games like "Noobs practice vs bots" "5 human 5 bots", etc. There are tons of them, and in case you can't find one, you can always create, they fill up pretty fast.
So, what's the difference? In stead of having to support 5 separate games of 1 human and bots, the server only accounts for 1 game 5 human vs 5 bots. It's still fun and you get to learn from others, not just on your own experience. And it improves server stability in normal games, which is of upmost importance for the game. After all, 99% of the players play vs other human players.
