I've seen people take it step further and refuse to use their revive so the point gets capped, then when a couple people come to take it back they revive and run top. I don't normally like to run cheese picks, but if I'm forced to bot at champ select I will pick a 'no fun allowed' tier bot like Malz or Nunu. Or if my top looks like a failtrain express, I will go for Viktory instead.

I said a year ago the map needed a change because everyone hated bot, but the pros said it was fine. It isn't, it is the exact opposite of why people queue for Dominion and I seriously believe it is hurting the fun factor (and incentive for new Dominion players to stay) of the mode at this point. ARAM doesn't have a 'sucker' slot, and neither should Dominion.

And is more often a completely annoying thing to happen to you.
I do this a few times as either a mobile or long ranged bot, as I normally pick high scaling bots I can sometimes respawn and clean up situations top before I return to lane.

In addition to OP: Does not communicate to team entire match, disregards messages and pings to come back to bot lane.

That feel, bro. : (

As a primarily bot laner for most of my dominion time: this is not a bad strategy if you have revive up and there is a fight top you can go and crush for your team up top.

Obviously you need to go back bot after tho.

I doubt this is what actually happened.

I enjoy the **** out of bot actually and I don't know why everyone hates it so much. Want to rack up a ton of kills and points as a bot laner? Play a super aggressive with a tankier build like panth or riven or hurrgot. Hell you can still go glass cannon Talon and do reasonably fine. I think bot is one of those lanes people have bad experiences with and never want to do again. I see bot as an opportunity to be the biggest pain in the ass possible for the other team.

Riot should take out the bot lane so we can all go top and have fun together.

Bot = Jungle role of Dominion.

Get ganked at bot, someone covers. You respawn and start moving to bot, but they linger. Windmill starts getting contested. grrr it's just as frustrating
