I think a viable strat would be to send 3 straight up to Windmill since that is the most highly contested area, and have one person capture the 2 points that are closest to your base.

Of course, this strategy can be easily countered by going for your opponents other capture point.

MF + sona + janna (all with boots of mobility) to windmill, rammus captures the point on the way and reinforces windmill. Heimer with catalyst goes bot.


MF + support kite/delay windmill until rammus shows up.

Champion specific strategies... meh... this is in general

Anyways, from the replays it seems that the meta for the Riot beta test is:

1 goes bottom and stays in bottom lane
1 captures top (not windmill), then reinforces windmill
2 rush to go fight at and attempt to capture windmill
1 goes to windmill or goes for the buff, then goes for the windmill if they are not fighting already.

Personally, I think going for the buff, instead of a 3rd going for the windmill right away, is more important, since it gives you sight of the jungle.

the strat... Ninja Janna with MS quints, masteries, and general janna speedyness to take an enemy point instantly.
