Hello all; thank you for helping new players out. So I'm in a bit of a pickle as a level 12 summoner. When I play against beginner bots, the game is a total joke and I've gotten to the point where I can literally win single-handedly (e.g., rest of the team goes 0-35 and we win) by getting 7 or 8 kills with no deaths and focusing on pushing towers.
But against intermediate bots, my win rate is probably about 30%. I usually have a positive k/d ratio, and generally play AP mid, helping out with ganks, calling mia in my lane, etc., but in nearly every game there is at least one person (usually 2, sometimes 3) who feeds like crazy (0-15 or 0-20) and makes victory nearly impossible. I've tried to offer these people help as much as I can, but I'm not really experienced enough to make a big difference most of the time (not to mention when they don't want to hear any advice anyway).
I don't really have much fun against beginner bots because it's way too easy, I don't feel like I'm learning that much, and I am picking up bad habits (being too aggressive, etc.). I also earn very little xp. I don't really have much fun against intermediate bots because I lose far too often, and feel like it's out of my hands the vast majority of the time. There also appear to be a lot more trolls and overall toxic players, making the gameplay itself less enjoyable as well.
I'm kind of at a loss--I don't feel ready to play normal games, I feel like I have the fundamentals down (I have led my team in cs at least 90% of the time), but intermediate bots are apparently too difficult. So no matter what I do, I'm going to be earning about 60xp per game. I feel like there's something I'm missing. Is there somewhere where sane people with normal brain function can meet to team up against intermediate bots?
Thank you in advance.
