One of your goals in this format was to make the game more friendly for squishy champs. The exact opposite has happened. The game is now more in favor of bruisers then the previous twisted treeline. One of the reasons for this is because of the capture able points. You have have to be able to hold your ground early game to take those and that is something a tanky champ is good at. If your really dead set about keeping this twisted and not going back to the other one then make alters not unlock until far later into the game (like 10-15 mintues).

Also, the idea behind items to put things in favor of squishy champs has failed because there is to little variety in the items. To take advantage of them you sometimes have to buy stats you do not want which negates the benefit of the items. For example, being forced to buy crit just to get a 50% healing reduction when you really wanted to raise attack power very high first.

Your only option is to either create a lot more stat varieties of those special effects or to take them out of the game and use a debuff to cause effects instead of items.

In addition, it benefits bruisers a lot because the field is so small and there is litterally no where for a squishy champ to hide with the jungle and field that small. You also can not take advantage of a champ putting them self in a bad location because you can literally travel the field in not time. ( Travel time something squishy champs took advantage of greatly in summoners rift).


Finally, items like wicked hatchet do not discriminate between how a champ is balanced so while a 50% healing reduction effect can reduce the massive healing of a super tanky champ, it also applies just as strong to super squishy champs whose entire playability depends on that healing.

I don't know any solution to fix that other then take the custom healing reduction effects out of that format.

3v3 mode is not firendly for squishy champions mostly because smaller team size, and that is not to be changed.

Squishy champions favor short lanes as well, so far the only viable ones are teemo, zyra, and nidalee a little bit.

It would be great if they lengthened the time until the alters unlocked.

As someone that has always played more supportish and/or late game champions, those things are just annoying to deal with. What makes it worse is that I occasionally get teammates that like to prioritize them (and forcing fights in general) over pushing lanes.
