I can totally see Red's spending weeks to build a new game mode to make sub-5000 people slightly happier, while generating Riot 0 dollars... Or they can spend that same amount of time making more skins, generating hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Yeah, they will definitely make Coop vs AI for TT, just like how Riot has done a great job balancing TT over the last 2 years...

Was I supposed to add a /s?

I respect all your opinions, I think in my original message I did not clearly reflect my thoughts. Everyone loves new feature, even I do. The central issue is allocation of engineering resource, after all, this is no small matter to construct. So I didn’t really expect people would vote “no” on feature request for Coop vs AI for TT, I simply want to see how many people voted yes for obvious reasons.

Regardless of the result of this vote, I will forward this request to my team, and make some serious considerations regarding this request. I cannot give you any hard promises, but I will keep you updated on our progress regarding this matter.

So does spending time on developing TT bots mean that less time would be spent into improving SR bots? If so, then I suppose I would have too choose SR bots being improved since that game mode tends to be a lot more popular than TT is anyways...even though I really, really, really wish there was a bot mode to begin with for TT when I first started out so I could know wtf I was doing without fear of messing things up for my teammates in a real match =/

The biggest reason for this would be getting used to the map with out being stomped be players who play it 100+ times

I would not want to see Twisted Treeline bots until they fixed some of the aspects of the map itself (spawn fountain range, walls around dragon)

The problem is that TT is so much less popular BECAUSE it's completely neglected in this respect. If TT and SR were given the same treatment, I would expect the total number of players on both game modes to be roughly the same.

LOL isn't just another DoTA mod, it's got a life of it's own. TT is a game mode that is unique to LOL, and really, that uniqueness is probably one of the best strengths LOL has in attracting new players.

I'd love a TT Co-op vs AI. I spent a long time getting comfortable in bots for SR, and not having that practice for Twisted Treeline is probably the biggest deterrent for me personally.

I think it would be especially beneficial for that map- I hear the jungle creeps are pretty unforgiving, line of sight/ward spots seem counter-intuitive, and effective champions/team compositions are way different than SR.

It's up to Riot to decide if it's worth the development time/manpower vs the number of users benefiting, of course. But I know there's a population of players that were weaned off bots to PVP, as well as dedicated co-op vs AI players, that would appreciate the feature.

Training in Twisted Treeline bots mode would be hella clutch yo.
