The main problem I have with Dominion is that given the pacing and speed, there is never a good time to buy, ever. Going back to buy will result in an enemy comeback. For example, I was 5/0/9 as Garen freshly capping our 4th node, with 3.5k gold in my pocket. I was still over half health and was required to remain there to defend the node. Imo, you should be allowed to at least buy behind any captured node. I'm not asking it to heal me, I just want to unload that gold without auto-losing my lead.

That's part of the game. I only buy when i'm dead.

I like this idea a lot. It would keep Dominion very fast paced.

I usually buy when I'm dead, or I pill when I want to get to a close point and I'm across the map from the spawn.

The problem with this is that it would prevent combacks from ever happening. The thing I like about Dominion is that at any point your team can comeback.

You have to choose between possibly losing a point, or possibly getting undergeared. It's part of the strategy.

Don't forget your enemy loses control when they buy too. Your cast time to b and the map size + speed shrines help mitigate this but just remember the disadvantage goes both ways. You either decide to hold and cap with what you have or you risk losing a node to "power up". Since this is a strategic decision for both sides it's fine.

There is never a good reason to B in this mode. Buy only when dead, and defend your nodes even at 1 hp :P
