Plays like Dominion?

A lot of threads against the new TT recently have been saying the Altars make Twisted Treeline feel like dominion, which they don't like. My response to this is, when is the last time you even played dominion. I had a few friends that played dominion almost exclusively for a period of time so I've experienced a lot of the meta and strategies associated with higher levels of play on dominion and the new TT feel NOTHING like how dominion plays. I honestly wonder what the basis is for these statements.
The new Twisted treeline plays A LOT more like the old one than it does dominion.

They like to pretend the altars are more of a focus than they really are. Sure, it's good to have them, but it's not worth losing a tower, and if you go for them you're losing out on farm.

Yep. Hyperbolic overreaction. The flow of the game and the objectives feel nothing like dominion. The only similarity is that the buff altars are circles, and dominions capture points are circles. The real problem here is that people HATE change, and will often need to be brought kicking and screaming into the future.

I've played a ton of games on PBE and live now, and it honestly feels extremely similar to the old map. Anyone who says it plays like dominion is kidding themselves.
