Why no new bots for Custom games?

Ok we got a big update to the bot AI and a ton of new bots added last patch, yet in custom SR we still have the same crappy handful of bots that are even worse than basic bots and bots are still disabled in TT and Dominion. What gives?

It might be because no one really plays a custom game with a five man pre made against a full team of bots. In the video about the new bots they said that they were changing the bots to get people to see more versatile teams in bot games.

I only ever play custom games to test a new champ or build. Just to see if I like the champ or if the build even semi-works because the bots aren't a good indicator of real players. From there I try an intermediate Co-Op/AI game just so that in my first PVP game I know what I'm doing and I don't have to say "this is my first time with this champ."

Custom games are there for two reasons I feel, for testing, and to do pre made games. No one plays them for the challenge of the bots. I've also played a custom game to mess around with ARAM with some friends, but that's considered pre made in my opinion.

They (A red) said somewhere in the forums that it was coming next patch for Custom game bots to be getting the same update.

Why is this in champion feedback?

That's not what people play custom games for anyway so I don't know why you're even bringing that up. My line of thinking was being able to fill empty slots with bots to even out teams or fill them up and also for when you want to test a full build or something without having to worry about the game ending too fast or having to carry it.
