The problem with backdooring and towers in general

Armor / magic penetration should not effect towers. Towers should have flat damage reduction. Backdooring is not overpowered, but when Pantheon gets his 40% armor penetration, it means that he negates most of the tower's armor, allowing him to happily destroy with abandon. Heimer also is too good at slowly whittling down towers because of magic penetration. Sure it's fine that these champions can teleport in to finish towers, but it's not fine when they can hit them for close to 100% of their normal damage. Towers don't have much health and are only remotely sturdy because of the armor and magic resistance.

Void Staff works on towers (though this only appears to matter with heimer) but Last Whisper does not.


Cheers
