Instead of prohibiting entry to the map until the 1:20 minute mark, why not just prohibit capturing points until then? In other words, we have free access to the map from 00:00, just like SR and TT does, yet the actual capturing of nodes is shut off until 1:20 (or sooner).
What this would do (Keep in mind this is BEFORE the 1:20 start)
ē Encourages actual use of the FoW lanes that lead out to the map (as opposed to, very predictably, the 4 top 1 bot meta).
If you donít enter the jungle through the fogged up lane, then you give up your position to the enemy team, putting you at an immediate disadvantage.
ē Makes teams coordinate through the jungle to get into position for ganks/team fights/node captures (similar to SRís level 1 fight).
This can set up some amazing fights, maybe even 5v5 fights. For example, both teams coincidentally decide to invade their opponentsí bot node. They all leave through the lower FoW lane, cautiously wading through the jungle. We suddenly have an unexpected 5v5 fight at the bottom speed shrine!
ē Dissuades players away from the bland ď1 mid, 1 botĒ idea.
Who knows, maybe it will. The way I see it, why get your points first, which are closer to your repawn anyway, when you can get theirs? (similar to SRís level 1 invade)
ē Promotes a more exciting, risk-taking gameplay overall.
This one is a question mark because Revive is too strong in Dominion. Revive forgives people who die out of position and eliminates the advantage gained from a well-coordinated gank. Regardless, the thrill will still be there.
ē Improves Dominionís watchability.
I donít speak for everyone obviously, but I donít like watching Dominion streams/tournaments. Bot lane has a lot to do with it. Strangely, I despise playing SR, but itís still enjoyable to watch. SR is the successful model, so why not follow it?
