This, I'll agree with. It's a strategy. You don't have to like it for it to be viable. And the fact that it can be countered doesn't mean it should never be done.

K, I c what u mean. I was just commenting because u said 'look viable', which seemed to imply that the strat only worked cuz it was plus five, not the strat itself. Which is possible, but if people want to explore new meta possibilities, then why not encourage new thinking. Certainly more fun than watching eight bruisers crash into each other every minute or so. .

A few things on this, but I mostly agree:

1) Zaberz was away this week for an unknown reason, thus we needed either POOTERSS or FDru to take over, and POOTERSS has never been in a tourney with us before so that's mostly why he played with us (along with the fact that we wanted him to have a skin while he backcapped!).
2) Running mass revives actually originated from the EUW tournies, and we thought it was a great strategy to take up. It isn't the best on every champ/role, but it's certainly more viable than it used to be.
3) It was never 4v5. In fact our team was usually in a 4v3 situation because it took 2 people to take a point back from POOTERSS.
4) It's a cheese strat, yes. However, POOTERSS does do it a LOT better than the average solo queue ruiner.

Also, why the downvotes for the final game video info?

now that i think of it do you imagine how "boring" it would be if Dominion didn't have the crystal aura? five melee derps just bashing at each other endlessly for three minutes straight (and irelia being a top pick) it would possible increase quantitiously the duration of the games.
