I have, and I still stand by my point. My number one priority is getting to and taking down the enemy Nexus. My goals in order to make this a reality are, in order of importance:
  1. Engage in teamfights on my terms in order to maximize success
  2. Defend the altar nearest my team without feeding the enemy
  3. Capture altars when it is safe to do so, trying to avoid instigating a teamfight by standing on an enemy altar
  4. Farm

I try to communicate with my team so we are all on the same page. Guess what? Only one loss so far. Two of my victories were with a champion I've only ever played once before.

Yes, the altars are important, but I don't mind conceding one now in order to get better positioning in an upcoming teamfight. I will not feed just to protect the altars.

Dude wtf noooooooooooooooooooooooooo. I dont play 5's i played 3's exclusively and these altars are ****ing lame, man. Other changes were nice but this is just stupid. This is not dominion and we dont need this **** here. Wheres the ****ing lane phase? Why cant I play Alistair anymore? Why did you do this? This is not some ****ing arcade mode, riot. It was a mini summoners rift.

I kinda like the idea of the optional altars, but I think when a team has both captured the buff is too strong, can turn tides easily. I think both altars should just be +4 gold per kill and when you have both you get +8. That way people will still go for them but some may focus on lanes more and take the 1:1 altar. Just my opinion, Thanks.

The map has been out for barley 3 days...Give it some time!

Ragers/trolls are worse than altar problems/snowballing


People have been complaining about this map before it even went live, which is like a week ago. So wtf?

Edit: Nome said they had another idea, but it wasn't as "good" as altars. His idea was that there were set lanterns around the map and you would catch them for vision with oil. I would rather have those lanterns be 2 minutes long, oil cost 50-75 gold, and have a top jungle. In my opinion i could (can't speak for everyone) easily live without old TT if that was the case on this map. I do love all the changes to it, other than stale jungling and the altars. Oh and lack of top jungle.

This is still not Dominion. Actually, I think this is a step towards Summoner's Rift. The new altars, when played strategically and not running around like a bunch of blind monkeys, serve very much the same purpose as blue, red or dragon, as far as map design goes. They are secondary objectives that can give your team an advantage when taken safely, or lead to a big play by the other team if you are careless.

The lane phase could still exist, but too many people are either confused or are taking advantage of the confusion, wandering around the map aimlessly or to slaughter those wandering, respectively. We won't know until the dust settles some more. The "arcadey" feel of this is probably resultant from the same.

Also, if I'm not mistaken about what you mean, Alistar* was only disabled because of a bug revolving around him and a few other champs. I actually do not know what champs were disabled, so correct me if I'm wrong.

this isn't really constructive. riot will skim right over your post as soon as they see all the asterisks. please try to put together a cognitive thought.
