I know they said they've removed Banshee's Veil (I guess the passive made it too easy to protect yourself while capturing?), and replaced it with something new. Have also heard that there are no wards, and the usual Doran's items are gone (possibly replaced by newer ones to reflect the higher starting gold) - that last one I've only heard from other posters, so not sure how accurate it is.
And you're right about the area control - usually when I think of people saying characters are imbalanced, I think to killing power. I could see somebody like Heimer being pretty good at area control, but I wonder how effective that would really be. This is all guesswork & theorycrafting on my part, but I'd wager that even if he can camp one turret really well, that puts his team at a disadvantage in regards to the other 4.
You can probably counter strong area-deniers with the Dominion versions of backdooring and split-pushing. Still, I'm excited to see how that plays out!
