Dedicated back-cap champions lose games for their team in games where people know to have someone always chilling near your points.

Dedicated back-cap champions are frustrating to play against in lower-skill games and Priscilla's encourages their use.

Regardless of skill level Priscilla's encourages degenerate gameplay on the order of making an item for Rift that renders champs immune to tower damage if no enemy champions are nearby. It isn't fun for people who don't know how to counter it and it hands out free wins to those that do.

Saying the existence of an item promoting bad gameplay is stupid, you can't blame something just because some people choose to misuse it.

The problem is that the item gives extremely ****ty stats and costs a lot of money, so they only people who have any motivation to buy it are backcappers. If it was cheaper, or gave better stats, then you'd see a lot more people buy it because cap speed is a valuable stat.


It's just that Priscilla's doesn't do **** all else.

Pretty much this.. Its an awful item that gives no stats, and is ONLY useful to BDers


If it gave decent stats more people would include it in their regular build...

You can make better items, and then backdoor, instead of having that ****.

How to recognize bad dominion player? He buys Priscilla. It gives awful stats for its prize.
People don't realize, that you get free money in Dominion, but it's limited. You almost never finish full set. 1,6k gold spent on Priscilla is 1,6k gold which you didn't spend on useful stats. Without those useful stats your champs is weak and you can't help your team enough.
Because sometimes you have no choice, but to towerdive, kill enemy and take that Windmill. You will never do that with garbage build, like troll priscilla/zeal Eve.

In other words. Priscilla/backdoor tactic becomes completely useless in the moment, when enemies capture 3 points and defend them.

It's useful against bad teams who don't know how to defend. Which seems to describe most random PUG Dominion teams.

Although I think BDing is fun and can turn the tide of a game. I've BDed many many times and have countered BDers many times.
