Riot Games has announced this week that they will be bringing an update to League of Legends that focuses in on enhancing the experience players have when playing cooperatively against AI-powered champions. Incidentally, Riot Games' Senior Producer Mark Norris said that co-op vs. AI is "the primary game mode for a surprisingly large percentage of users."
In light of this, Riot Games wants to deliver the best possible League of Legends experience to their users. The Rise of the Bot Army update brings a host of new bots to choose from and a wider variety of character types.
We’ll be expanding our roster of AI opponents to 40 total bots, providing a much larger variety of enemy team compositions. That means new tanks, new mages, new carries and new support champions to battle when you take to the Field of Justice alongside your friends in the Co-op vs. AI game mode!
In addition to a veritable army of new opponents, we’ve also upgraded the bots with more intelligent behavior. You’ll find that the bots not only have better map awareness and team coordination, but can also now deploy skillshots and use activatable items. And what’s more, we’ve made each and every one of them available on both Summoner’s Rift and – for the first time ever – Dominion!
Whether you’re looking to test new champions, tactics, or builds, this legion of new bots will provide an excellent training ground to hone your skills!
The update is due to go live soon, so be sure to check out http://na.leagueoflegends.com/ and stay tuned to Curse.com as we learn more!
