As the players get upgrades it will become more laggy. It also depends on the MAP you're playing. Teamfights at last upgrades on my CPU drops the frames at 35 fps
But it is sure from bots. They are very laggy. Bots drop me at 25 fps(16+16)

Same here yet I get MASSIVE stuttering and put my resolution/settings down and it's still pretty bad. Hopefully it's temporary because the performance doesn't seem to match the quality and what's going on.

Bots slow you down! On this rig I have 40-50 fps maybe 60 with maxed graphics when playing online, but 20-25 fps when playing with bots.
