So, just ensure that you have someone paying attention to where [insert mobility champion here] is heading, and stop them from capping. The tower (and you!) will prevent them from grabbing it. The key is to not waste too many resources (ie don't send your whole team) trying to stop him.

Also, I find clairvoyance to be effective against backdoor strats.
Just keep Rammus busy, interrupt him..poke..run away..repeat..he will be unable to cap and/or cap the point. Thus freeing up alot of time for your team to make their move. This will be hard in Solo Q...without being able to talk rapidly to your team...Maybe Riot thinks about getting an in-game chat like Teamspeak? It would help Solo Q alot..however it can cuz more trolls...

If only they put an item in dominion that provided sustain and increased capture speed that every rammus could and would purchase. Hmm

When you try to do this, he just rolls to a different node. Not like you can do anything about it.

In the last 4 games i played there was a rammus that brought ghost and instantly rushed top and capped it before anyone else could even get there. then you can't even contend the turret because early game it will tear you apart if you dive. the other team gets a free cap and rammus is free to back door any time you decide to push anywhere else. Let us not forget the item that lets him cap faster. then he brings the ability that also lets him cap faster. now you have a back door machine that is hard to kill and can taunt you into the tower that he takes. gentlemen i give you instant rage!

The only problem with this is that Rammus can greatly exceed the speed cap with his sonic rip and the zephyr platforms, he can literally cross than map from spawn in about 10-12 seconds. I don't think that is very fun behavior for anyone on the opposing team, as Rammus literally may show up wherever he pleases and can get away from nearly all gank/brawl situations without fear of death.... and then go solo cap a node while your teammates that tried to chase him have to b or run around for some health boosts first.

Cap his speed while rolling in Dominion, please.

This. CV is just a really small band aid on a pretty big cut. Looking forward to another dominion window so we can continue trying to counter pick/play a rammus (hint hint riot).

Sarcasm? I'm going with sarcasm.
