I've been having terrible frame-rate lag on this map, a problem which hasn't occurred on any other. Perhaps it's too awesome for my computer to handle?
As with the recent SR makeover, the team's goal was to simultaneously improve visual quality and increase system performance.

Are any of the new items we've seen planned for SR, or are all of them TT exclusives?

Also, is it true that TT no longer has wards? Had a friend claim that, but I haven't got home to verify myself...

So I have never posted on the forums before but I have to say that because I play so many 3s matches I need to know how and when I can get my paws on this map! Please tell me!

Would you kindly ban that player's name rjcombo, or send it to the PB&J team and ask why it hasn't already been cited by players as something that belongs in the Tribunal?

Singular tense (obviously) can be made into the plural, as it often was in racist essays and film propaganda before the civil rights movement: "The inferior black man holds many disadvantages intellectually to the white man...", the game announcement system announcing that "You have been killed by the Filthy Jew" is exactly the same sort of issue.

Thanks.

The major difference is capture points are the focus in Dominion, while altars on TT are a side objective which boosts your team's ability to succeed. There's also a capture-lock system that guarantees a temporary benefit to your team after capturing an altar.

The goal is not to make TT like Dominion, but rather to apply some of the lessons we learned while developing Dominion. Big difference.

More the latter. The goal is to encourage less turtling/farming and more skirmishing. In terms of game flow, I think you'll find the new TT rests comfortably in a place between Summoner's Rift and The Crystal Scar.

We got one not so long ago. A lot of elements, especially the stairs going into the bases/on the summoner's platforms, got retuned visually.

Everything looked a lot sharper, and a lot of the jungle mobs got visual upgrades too. I'm also told that it improved performance somewhat on lower-end machines.

I doubt we'll see a major rework of the visuals like we did now, but I've seen bits and pieces from other Rioters that hint that maybe, maybe! we'll get some visual reworks to make map hotspots like the Baron cave more interesting.
