  • bots vs ion shell

    Bots don't know how to deal with Dark Seer's Ion Shell. They are just running from and to shelled unit - back and forth. I think there are more spells that make bots go insane, but ion shell is the most obvious.
    Sorry for my bad English.

    Yes, and the teamfight music plays as well. Pretty hilarious in early game that they will run all the way to their T2 tower to avoid a 1 HP creep with Ion Shell. As of now they move around trying to lasthit/deny but goes into "Evasive Maneuvers" when Ion Shell connects. This is more obvious in the top lane where they stay stuck in a corner and let themselves take damage.

    They should treat this like any other harassment, and if the creep's HP is low enough they should just kill it themselves or hug their tower instead of running back for their next creep wave. Have whoever is support or ranged in their lane to prioritize and kill that creep or just stay within XP range.
