I just lost to a premade using 3 promotes. Starting at lvl 4/5, they pushed mid with 3 promotes, eliminating all our turrets and inhibitor with a single push at level 6. Then they took advantage of eliminating our inhibitor at 11/12 minutes into the game and pushed other lanes once promotes recharged... I mean, seriously? None of our champs fed or were terrible players either. Please nerf promote or at least don't allow for more than 1 on a single team.

Promote's getting taken out soon until they can rework it.

Here's how you beat that:

Teamwork, if you use it, they can't push the second tower.

Joined a random game with a friend. The team hadn't died, infact they all got an early kill. We were Teemo, Rammus, Ryze, Katarina, and Blitzcrank.

They were Taric, Alistar, Mundo, Singed, and Sion. All had Promote and Teleport, except one, Mundo had Promote+Rally. Mundo was mid with me, Teemo. I had him backed up, but then Sion came from the brush. I ran back to the turret untouched, and pinged mid. Then Taric came, they pushed to turret and I pinged furiously. Blitz came, to help, but all 5 of them were there and had every minion promoted. My team never left their lane, and I called them on it. They took the 2nd turret, finally my team recalled. It was too late though, they took the base turret, then the 5 promoted minions killed 3 of our guys. The level 4-5 enemies came and took our inhib, sat and then let the super minions kill our guys easy. The game was over in ~15 minutes.

I really can't imagine a way that happened, what abilities did your team take?

Promote is only OP against teams with little or no coordination and/or little or no AoE.

A decent team, even of solo queuers, should have enough of both to counter it.

If you don't, how were you planning on winning against non-promote teams?

I had heal and tele, everyone else had random things. Ghost, exhaust, cleanse, etc.

If it makes you guys feel any better, Zileas posted saying that they're removing promote and reworking it.

I thought it was uncounterable till I discovered DPS + Madred's Razor = dead promote and lots of feeding.

I smoked a 5-man Promote team pretty much by myself as Tristana with Madred's.
