Yep...better than any mmo out there, and as a DotA-type game, it'sone of the most fun, competitive and rewarding on the market. Great product.

As an aside, as opposed to the shit product Bioware put out as a sub-based single-player rpg.

Yes, playing that one map from Warcraft 3 is always fun.

Nothing against League of Legends, but if Massively is now no longer a MMORPG news site but also covers MOBAs, I'd be glad to see some HoN and DotA2 news as well.

@(Unverified) I cover games like HoN and Dota 2 in my weekly news roundup Not So Massively feature: http://massively.joystiq.com/category/not-so-massively/

We've recently begun posting big stories on League of Legends and Diablo III on their own, as there's a massive audience for them among MMO fans. The audience for HoN, RoI, BLC etc isn't quite the same size, so we round up all the news on those games each week in Not So Massively.

Woot! This is stuff I have wanted for awhile! I love the bot matches....cause...well - I'm BAD at PvP - but this game is WAY fun against bots. For those that are turned off by thinking LOL is a PvP game - It doesnt have to be at ALL.

@Azzura +1 You're not alone. I am not a fan of PVP but I love this game, even if the bot matches are very limiting.

Totally. Players who took the game way too seriously back in the day with strong expectations from other players in PVP was what turned me off of DotA back in the day, so what originally got me into LoL was being able to simply fight against bots, which is still my primary gameplay mode. It is still fun and nice to be able to play at a relaxed pace where if a team mate goes linkdead, it doesn't mean guaranteed failure. Basically, LoL has become my version of Solitaire where it is a game I like to play just to relax, still being mentally stimulating but not harshly demanding.

My only problem so far has been how limited the bot roster has been and starting to get used to their AI, so I'm extremely happy to see the bot roster more than doubled with the option to try do Crystal Scar as well. Can't wait for it to go live :)

@Azzura Yeah, I'm the same. Playing against the bots is a lot of fun and pretty low pressure. Plus you get to choose how "hard" you want the game to be since you can pick the bot difficulty.

And 10-15 second wait times for a co-op vs AI group doesn't hurt either.

I'm looking forward to having more AI options! While the genre is a pvp game at its core, there definitely are tons of people who play it co-op primarily.

@scfs123 If it was LeBlanc bot I, for one, would have cowered in fear at our new bot overlords.

3 words League of Losers!! bwah hahah just kidding guys I love this game as well. I can't wait for new bots to fight and hope their alot smart then the last lot. All they do is if you destroy bottom right turret they zerg the lane and stay there for a good while. While your teammates just put top lane and GG.

Its great news for players who play this game however I think the game is too slow and gets old after a while. when i played this game, I mainly did vs bots because its a great way to try out champions against champions you already know. now lets bring out the dominion bots (or have they done so already?)

There will be dominion and twisted treeline bot games too they said in one of the interviews, so more maps with bots and more bots.
