  • Bots should use more spells in mid lane

    First of all, I really apprecciate the recent change, that bots tend to stay in mid lane now more often.

    Problem: 1) bots in midlane will cast a spell here and there, but will not seriously harass you. Especially Windrunner, Zeus and Lina (Bane does a good job mid using his spells, best mid AI imo) could be a lot more dangerous but they tend so stick around with a huge manapool. We all know their amazing sidelane coordination, when two bots can chain a stun. On the other hand I find bots too passive if they are solo.
    2) they will often get heavily harrased, running back and forth in your autoattack
    3) maybe you could implement bottle for mid bots, since they check the runes a lot anyways. this would solve a lot of hp and mana problems and make them spam their spells on you more.

    Spamming spells on a 1n1 lane where it is about creep control is never a good idea

      Not if it's a cheap 1 target spell like a Zeus lightning bolt.

        Spamming might have been the wrong term, but I'm sure you get the idea that is is never very wise to not use your mana pool at all.

        Good players use spells vs creeps before the runespawn for example, to push the creeps to the enemy tower and get the rune savely.
