To start Backdooring was and is a major point of Dominion. When dominion came out there was an item that let you cap towers faster for that reason. But people complain that ramus is to fast and can cap towers before you can react bla bla bla. that is why you had some one sit around mid tower to stop that from happening. Dominion is so much more fun then the lame "meta" of 4 top and 1 bot people are sticking to because they can not get SR out of their heads. try mixing it up.

Stepping off the soap box.

CannonFodder has the right idea about skipping a defended tower and going for another. only problem is that you have 1 person doing thing when it should be a group of 3 or 4. Also when you try to backdoor and an enemy comes to fight for it, Instead of fighting (and risk enemy back up) you should just poke them, try and waste their time, And when another enemy shows up just run. Do not stay their and be a martyr, go and help you team cap top or something, better to live to fight another day.

That's why most enemy Eves are usually a free win.

The asinine martyr bonus only encourages this behavior, really needs to change. Too many say *deaths dont matter, kills dont matter, the point is to cap*. Well, if youre dieing and not killing, the other team is only growing stronger and stronger than you, and by midgame you have no hopes of being able to hold any of your turrets, much less continue to cap any.

At the same time- when you have a dug in top team holding the turret from you- dont just sit there poking away and hoping something is going to change. Go grab their mid, get them to pull off the turret, then ambush and win the fight, then go grab top.
None of this is hard to learn, but some people are stuck on an SR mentality or something.
This. 100x this.

also, yes, they failed at racetrack-mode. kinda like they failed at Fiora-bot-AD-Carry in SR. but that might just be because they don't have enough time to do everything they want, not cause the map isn't supporting it
