    And well, while grouping up to place wards is a good idea in some cases, honestly if you keep track of hero positions on the map or make do with some more defensive positions, there is no reason you should die nearly as often as the bots do when warding.

    And really CM was rather useless in lane even before she was made more timid, she's just really really bad at gauging her strength compared to the enemy.
    Yeah, I'm confused. In regards to keeping track of hero positions, are you talking about myself warding or the bots warding? Obviously I wouldn't be stupid enough to ward when I have no idea where the enemy team is, especially if I am solo. That's why I made the suggestion. They solo ward once the previous wards have died down. Therefore they have no idea where the enemy team is, and usually always end up running into them. Not that they account for the other team when warding, but they definitely should.

    The bots path very badly when warding to begin with. It's still very predictable at the start of games and in Co-op matches people usually always gank whoever is actually warding at the start of the game. I think they should change that behavior to have bots ward before the horn as a team of 5, then disperse to their lanes. It prevents gaining an unfair advantage because 4 people are waiting exactly where they know the bot will be. That bot ends up losing so much time from the lane due to having to place the second ward before they go to their lane.
    This ain't ova.
