So I've been getting my feet wet today with the different champions, as well as getting a feel for the game in general. I've been playing practice games against bots, and my question is, which is harder, "Noob" or "Easy," or is there any difference?

The terms themselves aren't entirely clear. "Noob" was default, suggesting it might be the easier of the two, maybe. "Noob" sometimes refers to a completely clueless rank amateur, but usually not... usually "Noob" refers to someone who had played a bit and knows just enough to make a fool of themselves whining about imbalances on the forums. So it isn't like "Easy" and "Medium" where the terms themselves suggest clearly which would be the harder of the two.

So, setting out to discover the answer myself, I've played games with all noob bots, others with all easy bots, some with noob bots on the opposing side and easy bots on my side, and still another which was the reverse of that. For the life of me I couldn't tell any difference in any of the games.

I'm wondering if noob bots and easy bots are actually the same, or if there is a difference, what is it?

I'd rather play against an easy player than a noob, but that doesn't tell me who will be the harder opponent.

If they were to change the AI difficulty levels to "easy" and "retarded" that would be more clear.

IMHO.

Noob bots just run to the creep wave and stand there doing absolutely nothing. They may eventually throw out one or two attacks on the minions though.
