At the start of each season the Bots I face are impossible; I am constantly facing fully loaded level 20 bots without reprieve, regardless of my league or current streak. For instance, I am currently in league 2, had a one win streak, and was matched against impossible level 20 bots. I could not damage them and my heroes were killed after two attacks. This match-up defies logic and is completely unenjoyable.
However, as per previous seasons, I anticipate this pattern will abate and the bots will become practical. I have to question why the developers do this to some players? It leaves me with little chance to progress for the 1st few weeks of each season.
If this continues for a more seasons I am certain at some point I will quit instead of waiting for the bots to relent.
As the developers can no longer reasonably argue PvP is a recent addition, there is no excuse for such Gordion Knots. This should have been resolved by now.
