it may be annoying, but it is a legit strat, imo. dominion has always been about the cap points first, not kills. the perception that a team must maintain point majority only via fighting is flawed. its like backdooring the enemy in dota or lol. ultimately, the point is to kill their nexus, not them.

I can tell you that this strat would lose to the standard 4 top 1 bot. I usually hang in the jungle do his backdooring tactics does jack all. All you need to do is kill 1 of their teammate running around then you get the advantage and just run and take all their points. When they respawn the usual is camp jungle and blow up one of their lone mates and keep killing them with the 4v3 advantage.
Its just in solo Q players like to sit on top point all day hoping enemy team tries to take it when they just backdoor and 4 cap them. Besides in the match they had a backdooring janna... I can't tell you how many games I've seen people do that and were always on the losing team.

There's a difference between strategically backcapping and just constantly going mid all game long. I'm pretty sure that the only reason Feedski's team lost is because +5 was able to eventually beat them 4v5 and then BPB severely overreacted with too many people going with speed builds and wandering the jungle close to mid so they weren't able to properly deal with the rest of the team.

Personally, I don't think there was enough backcapping before, but that doesn't mean you should just go mid nonstop. The best move is usually the one your opponent doesn't expect. Imagine if just a few times POOTERSS had ganked bottom instead, or joined a team fight when they were holding someone back at mid to keep him from backcapping, or intentionally lead a single chaser into a gank. Now imagine having to guess where 5 (or at least 4) different people were going to go all the time, and CV is considered a must-have spell.
