put the 3rd point in the middle of the map instead of top. the two close points are now equal distances away from the neutral point. now capping mid and bot both lead to the immediate regrouping for the fight for the middle neutral point.

that's not true but I think if one team has a dedicated bot at team select and another team tosses whoever down there it's pretty clear which team is going to win

I think tweaks need to be made to make bottom a little more interesting, and less like laning.
Sums it up nicely.

The problem is a player problem. It's like 0 cs support on SR; people REFUSE to change to 4 top 1 bottom meta and so bottom/support remain the punishment slot in soloq. It's fine and all in tournament games, where you can rely on teammates to assess the situation and switch/help bot accordingly. In soloq, it's a lifetime prison sentence. No one will help you, no one will switch with you, you will be flamed any time you lose bot regardless of how well you had done up until then.

THIS COULD ALL BE CHANGED IF PEOPLE WANTED IT TO BY RUNNING 2 BOT. But they won't. I am getting sick of it the the point where I will not play soloq anymore; I do not insta-lock, and so like lastpick on SR I am apparently expected to go bot.

I like to play bot aggressively. Make it your goal to take both bottom points, and it becomes a fun challenge.

Because when you're the bot lane you don't really get to do anything else. Even in SR laning phase ends eventually. In Dominion it's the whole game. And unless you're ganked, you'll only ever fight the same person the whole time, too.

i dont mind bot, but i dont like doing it every single game. i also dont like it when i want to play a champ as a top (soraka, singed, mao, morg, karhtus, eg) but because these are "bot" champs, the team makes me go bot
