instead of two altars i think they need to make one altar in the middle of the map. that give the same 10% buff. and you can capture it every 5 mins. the buff can last for like 2 or 3 mins. with two altars that you can capture of defend every 90 seconds is to fast. you cant stay in lane and farm or anything. you either cap it walk to lane. and have to go to the other one to try and cap it. its stupid. also the speed shrine does nothing so it is pointless. they made it to much like dominion instead of a different game type all together.

Now i really like that idea..... would slow it down just a tad, take some of the focus off of the altar and back to lanes/pvp.....man we need everyone to hear that idea!!!!!!!!!!!!

We'll be monitoring the altars very closely. There are some potential changes sitting around, but it's really quite to early to judge their impact.

Teemo shouldn't be allowed to place shrooms in the speed shrine!

They need counterplay to Altar capture...in Dominion, you're at least capable of stopping people from capturing your points.

Altar wasn't as big of a deal to me. I pretty much just kept csing and ganking. The other team would try to secure theirs and I would scare them off while my laners csed. Lol.

Going head first into a match, one thing that bother me about alters is that I couldn't identify a timer or a indicator of when a alter (one has already capture) was recapture-able. I would look at the alter and it have no chain, however, enemies were able to cap it vs me and this generally confused me.

imo,

I personally do not like level 1 fights, even in old TT. The alters should unlock later into the game(3:00~) for objectives.

I would also like to see the alters being locked longer, at least 2 minutes.

There's hardly any reason to stay in your lane to outfarm when the speed shrine promotes ganking far too early. Again, perhaps it the shrine should activate around (3:00~) to contest for objectives.

Oh and mages still need help in terms of items. The new bruiser items are ridiculous. Excluding Singed of course.
