Bots will now be able to detect level farming strategies in Co-op vs. AI modes.
The Ranked mode is a big part of the League of Legends as a whole. It is what motivates a lot of players to keep playing the game. Whether to reach the highest rank possible, AKA Challenger, or play for the rewards, there’s no denying that players like to play Ranked.
That said, getting into the Ranked mode is somewhat of a challenge. Players must first create an account, level it up to 30, and own 20 or more champions just to get a chance to play ranked. For a new player, it’s a natural process that helps them to get accustomed to the game.
But for a player making an alternate account, it becomes a chore. Thus, players use accounts that use exploits to level up faster or use them themselves to avoid such an unpleasant task. These exploits refer to players being AFK in a Co-op vs. AI match and farming for account levels.
Not only does this violate riots terms of service, but it also hampers the new player experience. So, Riot is looking to crack down on these exploits and add bots that can stop them in-game.

In a recent Dev Blog, Riot announced that they would introduce brand-new Bots to League of Legends. These bots will have updated AI and are expected to support all 160+ champions in the game. In addition, they will be able to Jungle, Gank, take Objectives, and have proper role assignments.
Furthermore, these new and improved bots will be able to detect account-level farming strategies. For example, if players use the Akshan E exploit at the opposing base, Bots will recall and stop it. Bots will now recognize and kill any player who tries to enter their base before 5 minutes. In addition, Riot mentioned that if any new strategies like this arise, they will update the bot, so players will not be able to exploit these strategies.
