I don't think this works well at low elos. The reason for this is most people don't understand that when the enemy team sends people bot to gank you, they shouldn't come help but should instead continue to pressure top and the enemy mid. Instead, your entire team leaves top to come "help" you, letting it fall. I can't tell them to not come, they don't listen, at all, and even call me names or rage for "failing bot lane."

Even worse is you're still reliant on top to go well. If top lane fails and they are losing really badly, often what happens is, it frees up resources for the enemy team and they can send team members to bot lane to harass you. Meanwhile, team Derp Express top can only barely manage to hold mid turret against 3.

At low elos, a "send two bot" strat seems to be really effective, because simply put, no one really knows how to handle that situation correctly.

If you're top, that leaves you with more map freedom, and more of an ability to go where **** can actually get done.

I dunno, just musing.

FDru do you think there are good times to roam out as bot lane?

top usually fails because nubs don't escort minions to the capture point instead they derp in and start to spam skills and taking turret damage and pretty much self destructing them selfs , than respawn and do it all over again

thay only find time to call you the only person who's pushing the minion wave into their tower so you can fight with out having to take towerdamage not to mention the minions will capture faster than you can at this stage in the game is a noob for not helping and that farming in dominion is noob




dusnt take long to L2Dominion ,,, i guess allot of ppl are either to lazy to or to full of them self's to

Know thyself. It is important to realize you have a lot to learn as well. Everyone does.
