Camping the Fountain
 
Could there be a problem where if the enemy team is seriously fed, they can camp outside the spawn pool so that you wouldn't be able to walk out without getting destroyed in mere seconds?

If the team is good enough to capture all the points and then just camp outside you base entrances, then they were going to win anyway.

I would think that two speed buffed champs running off opposite sides of the fountain should be able to run past the blockade regardless of how fed the other team is. Also, I think that this is not very likely to happen based on the fast gold generation for both sides. I think the advantage to kills will only be to keep your opponents from running around the map, not the gold bonus like in SR.

Keep in mind that there is also passive xp generation so I'd imagine it's pretty hard to manage a complete lockdown. A new spawning mechanic was also mentioned where you're more likely to respawn with teammates.

Given that there are also two exits, I can't imagine even an extremely fed team being able to manage this for long.

Think I saw it done, to a lesser degree, during Friday's livestreaming. But at that point, the game's already won.

problem: one team is constantly full life, the other not.

camp the spawn? good luck...

You also need to remember that there are two exits out of the spawn. The team camping does NOT have view of the enemy spawn yet the team being camped has view of the people camping. Which means the team being camped can easily send their entire team out the exit that has less people guarding it.
