Bottom lane

Bottom is a League of Legends (LoL) and Defense of the Ancients (DOTA) term that refers to the bottom lane of a MOBA map. It may also refer to the player's character, AKA champion, that is playing in the bottom lane.

The LOL and DOTA map consists of a top, mid, and bottom lane with jungle area in between the top-mid lanes and mid-bottom lanes. The champions that play in the jungle area are called junglers. It may also be seen as bot, which is even more of an abbreviation than bottom.
