Hey there!

I apologize if this has been answered before, but, what i've noticed in the stream is for example blue team having 3 bases and purple having 2. Blue team having 3 bases does not lose any "nexus life" while purple will.

Shouldn't all "nexus life" be constantly draining on a % of how many bases owned?

No, the nexus only gets drained if you have less Capture points. It doesn't matter if it's 3/2 or 5/0, the amount of drain will stay the same.

This is almost correct. While it's true that you don't lose nexus health if you have equal or more points than your opponent, the speed at which you make progress is faster at 5/0 than at 3/2.

It is? :O Can you give the rate per second/5sec/minute, maybe? *insert cute puppy eyes here*

At gamescom, we had a drain of max. 3 at 5/0 that was roughly each second. This does not directly take the additional nexus draining of getting killed/killing someone into account. You lose 1 point/sec at 3/2, 2 points at 4/1 and 3 at 5/0, obviously. This is roughly correct, I assume.
