No more bot games or something?

I just played through the tutorial, and it told me to make a custom game with bots. I tried to create it, but got some message about not being able to create games with bots. What gives?

practice games must be made with people now... this is to stop the IP farming you could do beforehand with bots and quick victories.

instead of just implementing a system to disable ip/xp in bot games..... yeah >_>

What the hell? Practice games are still temporarily disabled for me, but I hope the bot farm thing isn't true.

Incorrect. It's just temporary. This has been pointed out many times on the official forums.

IP farming ftw. Normal games are now practice games, and ranked games are the real deal.

It's not because of farming, it's because so many people made private games against bots it was causing the servers to crash super often.

People were still making too many bot practice games even when they required 4 players, so practice games are unavailable for a while.

aye, basically with the release of season 1 they knew it would bring a lot of activity and practice games are not a good use of resources. They capped IP/Exp farming by placing a limit to the number of practice games you get IP/Exp from. Don't know where that other guy got his info, but I hate it when folks talk out their rear...
