Bots don't help me practice at all.. when i face bots. i dive all game.
It's ok, I give up. I'll troll too then It's not like riot is going to do anything if anyone reports me anyway right? I'll just stop giving my best.
I halfway agree with the OP.
When trying a new champ I am completely new to I will make some custom AI games with just me in them until I get a good feel for what abilities do what.
Once I have gotten good at CS, with that particular champ, and have a good feel for each ability then I will jump into normals.
Will I be good with that champ in Normals? Hell no PVP is much different than AI games.
For a more difficult champ I may head to dominion just to get a faster feel for itemization but other then that Normals is the next step, This is what Normals is for.
NOTE: Until I can pull my own weight with that champ I will never take it to ranked.
normal games dont count towards anything
the difference between winning and losing is 30ip
think about it this way and you'll be less upset about it
