: Riot does do something about it, but that sadly doesn't mean bots won't exist. It's a constant battle between the game developer, and the developer of bot tools. Normally, bots are banned in large waves, rather than individually each time they're detected. While this does mean bots may "roam free" for a while, it makes it much harder for those that develop these tools to figure out how they're being detected, and how to avoid so in the future. Ultimately, this tactic ensures that bots are less of an issue. Bots will generally lose games, making their MMR drop in the various queues. The more you play, the more you'll climb in MMR by winning, (which you'll on average do more often than bots), and you'll eventually stop seeing them. It's a known issue during parts of the game while leveling, but eventually you won't face them anymore, and they'll get banned soon enough anyway.

The problem is, we're losing games with bots too when bots are on our team. :)
