Tonight, I decided to play a 3v3 game since I haven't played one in quite a while. After I got into champion select, both teammates would not respond to me. I figured they were duo so I didn't mind.. Their picks were chogath and leona, both with ghost and heal. I thought the choice of summoners was strange, but I don't know much about 3v3 so I figured it was normal. Then we got into the game, and I have never been more confused in my life. They just started running at the towers, my team top their team bot. They would auto the tower and die to it if there were no minions. They did this until the game was over. I spent a while in team chat and all chat asking what was happening, and I got one response from my friendly Cho, saying "keyboard can't work". Now the other strange thing is that their team all had ghost and heal, they were cho ashe and kog. It took me a while to realize what was happening, and I realized that these are bots in 3v3s. They are playing eachother for IP or something, I honestly don't know, but it was a real game and I recieved IP for winning. Has anyone else ran into this before??? I have pictures attached as proof that this took place. Someone please explain what this is and why its happening!

Update: It keeps happening! I joined 3 more matches and they are all bots!!!! This surely isn't intentional is it?? Or is 3v3 so dead that they know they can just fight eachother for hours without any intervention? There were 5 bots in every game, meaning I must be the only real person looking for 3v3 matches. Please Riot, do something.
