Should rephrase to "based on his score", because bot CAN lose you the game

In dominion, there is absolutely no chance for this because everyone gains exp at a steady rate.
4v5 are winnable, I dont really know why you added this one, not afking or leaving is bad in every team based game.

Wrong, sometimes delaying them as much as posible for your team to come, even if you end up dying, can win games. Addapt to the situation.

Same as above, if you get close to do that you can end up dead, instead of aoeing from afar. Adapt to the situation.

- Dont die in the enemy points, only attempt to hold if its safe. If you die in an enemy point that you captured, your bot/top will come next. I cant even count how many games are lost because 3/4 people decide its a good idea to defend to the death the capped enemy mid, which ends up with them capping your top AND mid lategame.... just look at your respawn timers.

how about blaming no one and just keep all the negative thoughts to yourself. Easy to blame anyone but yourself in a team competitive game. Spouting out hate helps no one except to ease your self-righteous thinking that you must win every game or you have no fun.

I'd like to point out that one of the greatest strengths that Twitch and Eve have on Dominion is their ability to backdoor points and get away with it. With that said, it's true that focusing solely on backdooring as the only thing the player does will be a less effective strategy than contributing in other ways to the match, but there are some matches where a lot of heavy backdooring from Twitch/Eve is not a bad strategy. It really depends on a lot of factors, and often when your team has a bad roster of champions or are played by newbie players in general, there is plenty of good reason to repeatedly backdoor with Eve/Twitch.

What I sometimes see is a team of inexperienced players getting owned by the enemy team, but the Eve or Twitch player manages to disorganize the enemy team by backdooring repeatedly. If the game is won as a result, then the enemy team often has some negative words to say towards the Eve/Twitch player in the after-game chat. If the game is lost, then the Eve/Twitch player often gets yelled at by his/her team members for being an idiot for backdooring "constantly" and costing them the game.

It isn't always clear when it's a good time, a risky time, or a bad time to go for a backdoor, and not everyone will have the same opinion in the same situation. I think it is a good idea though to consider that if your team is doing badly and you see a Twitch or Eve backdooring the enemy team, it isn't necessarily only because you have a "stupid" Twitch or Eve on your team ruining the game for you. You may not understand why some of the better players are backdooring the enemy when they do, and there will always be the traditional "stupid" Twitch or Eve player who just runs around getting killed while backdooring aimlessly, but it isn't just a case of "Dominion games are full of nothing but Twitch/Eve players who do nothing but backdoor".

Tbh, BD with twitch/eve is only effective against bad/disorganized teams, so its not exactly something you should be encouraging when playing normally would almost always be way better.

Never pick champs with 0 cc and no way to escape a fight.

Picking Ahri is a thing to stop doing here.

Never have a negative attitude. I've seen the weirdest games turn around when you thought you're only chance at a win was an enemy disconnect.

Do not start arguing with your team and say gj after fights etc. You'd be surprised what you can pull off together on dominion.
