You need objectives worth fighting for. Vilemaw does to much damage to risk aggroing him with AoE in a proximity fight. Then the jungle camps are kind of there, no buffs worth fighting over. It's not a good thing.

The real problem is, no matter who's ahead, the altar control goes back and forth. There's no defensive play besides outright killing them in that tiny field.

Agreed about Vilemaw, it is good to make him more of a challenge as apposed to the old dragon, but not so hard that its not worth risking ever fighting him

just revert the map back to the old TT and make the choke points between the inhibs and base to prevent turtleing or whatever... keep old jungle and old actual map

To be fair that's pretty much the equivalent of saying the old TT was focused too much on dragon and buffs rather than the towers and nexus. They are just a different forms of map control, still important, but they won't win the game single handedly.

I'd personally rather have 1 alter in the middle that gives like 10% bonus in something rather than 2 small altars...

Nearly everyone in the PBE complained about this and now on live too.

Why the hell did you change the map 10 days from the end of the season?

The map is absolutely 100% nothing like dominion whatsoever. The altars are there to provide a buff, to provide extra gold for farming... taking one from your opponent does not just buff you it nerfs their ability to farm. It's still a Tower Defense map, the altars are simply a secondary objective that can help you succeed in the ultimate goal of destroying their defenses.

Duon't know about it 've seen Fiora, Rengar and JAx soloing at level 10 by virtue of dodgin its Legs, i've seen level 16 teams failing hard at him too though, imho he's still exploitable as Ebonmaw but not so exploitable that some champions could *cough* Solo it at level 3 and completely break the game *cough*.
