The biggest problem I have while playing bot is when my team decides to come "help" when there is important action going on up top. Come down and gank then go away. Screwing up my farm and losing the windmill in one swift action is frustrating.

After they send 3 people to take bot back from you, you either die like a crazy man stalling them as long as possible or return to base and buy stuff while they spend precious seconds retaking their bot.

If you want to mix it up, ask a teammate to come down and stick their ****s up your opponent's ass. Be careful, because the enemy might want to do the same to you.
I'm a Yorick Bot main, you just described my exact game! Especially the maniacal laugh

I Wukong bottom alot, max e first instead, and 3 shot heimer with the E-Q combo. Usually around mid game, I'll switch off with someone else to go top, especially if the team needs Wukong's ult up top. I tend to score top 3, even if 80% of the time is spent at bottom lane.

I stopped playing Yorick just so I wouldn't always be expected to bot. To each their own I guess

I hate last hitting. Fortunately bot has not a lot to do with last hitting.

Push hard, kill your opponent and make them send a gank squad to get you off their turret.

If there isn't any action down bot, you aren't doing it right!

I'm not so sure about that one. I'm noticing a trend where people are slowly understanding when and how to gank bot lane. Blindly pushing bot is just setting yourself up to get caught. Having an awareness on the locations of the other 4 players on their team is what should determine whether you push or freeze your lane.

I think bottom lane is fun if you have a team that understands that ganking bottom is a good move.

I play bot when I really, really have to, and in most of my games, people are like "sooo.. whos bot? and then *crickets*

and that's at fairly high ELO.
That's exactly what I'm talking about. The thing that frustrates me the most is having strong bots on your team ASKING who is going bot. It seems like the last person to speak up gets pigeon-holed into doing it, you know, that whole group-think thing.

The minute someone says "Teemo Bot" (in this case it was a Yorick) The rest of the team blindly goes with it and if I refuse (using polite logic) they just rage... and that sets them up to be angry, lowering effectiveness and possibly losing games. I have no problem going bot, but I'd like to do something else every now and then.

It's starting to feel like work. My job gives me nothing but closing shifts, and it's starting to irritate me. This situation has produced some of the same feelings. And I'm not going back to SR, so I may just have to lay off the game if I can't figure something out (other than a 5-man team).
