double

and I believe that somewhere I learned that the enemy nexus takes 1 point of damage when an enemy capture is interupted, you may want to add that, as right now you just say damage

updated for 1 point of damage, and your vote has been tallied, but I'll wait to see a few other votes before I change anything.
thanks for contributing!

i just hope they get around to making another map like sommoners rift. i'm not saying that this new game type is a bad thing, but theres a reason that we all decided to play this game, and i hope they dont stray to far from their roots

Heres my stab at #5, sry if its been addressed already.

Starting at lvl 3 will likely give per lvl runes the same benefit as they always give you at 3, making them equalize with flat runes even faster. I expect to see a lot of these with the exception of quints since most of them even out at much higher levels making them kind of dumb.In general the early game boost you get from flats runes will probably be a lot less attractive on this map.

agreed, but with games only lasting 20 minutes, will it be worth going for the rune if you're only going to get 2 minutes at level 18?

it's an interesting way to balance it, and I don't think I'm going to know if they did a good job until I actually PLAY the game.

btw, anyone in this thread going to PAX or GAMESCON or whatever they are that can get me info from them?

I think this type of of gameplay would really favor tanks, and allow them to make a comeback in the game. For example, capture a point and plunk a shen/rammus/leona down and watch the enemy team try and take it from you. If they try and channel simply taunt/stun them, interrupting their channel and scoring your team a point. For added effectiveness add a support character.
