How does the map prevent faster teams from getting a position advantage over slower loading teams at the start of the game?

On Summoner's Rift the towers would prevent teams from taking overly aggressive positions with no consequences. On this map it seems like the faster teams could quickly run over and camp the far away points, immediately putting one team at a disadvantage.

you're not allowed to leave the starting platform until about the time minions would spawn on SR.

The previews talked about being trapped in base until a 'bridge' extended to connect the base to the rest of the map.

Personally I'm more concerned about the increased time wasted by slow loaders when games take 20 mins instead of 40. A 5 minute load time is horrid when it is consuming 1/9 of your game but even worse at 1/5.

ummmmmmmmm....games don't start until everyone, that means both full teams, have loaded completely and are ready to start. I think OP is a slow loader....just a hunch.

So what if he is? And I don't think what you said about game starts being delayed is true. Haven't you ever had someone disconnect just as the game appeared on your screen?

being slow loader is bad but to fast of unloader is not good either.
