Well Turtling is getting out of hand.
Me and a couple friends of mine are avid LoL players and we really enjoy playing twisted tree line ranked because it separates us from the trolls of solo que. We are platinum in 3v3 this season but it honestly isn't even worth playing when a team can sit on their well and pull minions to it for 40 minutes straight turning what should have been a 30 minute game into over an hour of boredom. Is there even any thoughts about this getting fixed because it happens every single game unless the enemy surrenders. Does riot just not give a **** about twisted treeline? I know i can't be the only player who is sick of this garbage. It really needs a fix asap.

I agree, it's outrageous.

Well I find that one way to slow down this is to not kill inhibitors until pushing for game. If your team is overfarmed/ fed and them walking out is guaranteed kils, dont kill the minions. ward up and wait to catch a straggler. they need to move out to get that farm eventually

It is a problem and part of this problem is the death time, how punishing a single death can be.
But yes, atm all you can do to prevent this is to only take their inhibs when you're pushing to win.
I wouldnt exactly call it a strategy though(turtling), it just kinda happens when you've been bullied in lane by a Lee Sin or Jayce.

if you took out their inhibitors before you are close to 18, you deserve to get punched in the dick. By the teammate that was probably pinging like crazy to not take out the inhibitor.

Double punches if you only pushed 1 lane.

Turtling can be a good or bad thing depending on the situation, I mean if it is your team you would like to stop the other team from winning as long as possible, it allows your team to get enough gold etc to be able to finish you build an possible backdoor or ace for the win, but generally turtling is quite annoying especially with champions like blitz, urgot an skarner who just grab you an drag you into the fountain. Turtling is out of hand an indeed it needs to be dealt with some other way, even just making the spawn point a little further back extending the size of the base so that these things aren't possible.
