You have to own more capture points in order to lower the enemy nexus health? That doesn't seem very fair, just defend 3 all game, no need to ever try and leave.
Yes, because its easy to defend THREE points when there is only FIVE on your team.
5 people on the opposite team can easily swarm the one guy on your team defending a point.
You don't have to own 3 or more, you just have to own more points.
1 pt to 0 still lowers the enemy nexus.
Except you can't reliably defend 3 points from the enemy team. People don't seem to get that. If your built just to defend:
A) You're going to eventually lose all your defenders
B) You won't be able to get three captures reliably.
