Okay, maybe it's just because I didn't play much of the classic mode before I started playing dominion, but I found this thread hilariously ridiculous.
I completely agreeing with the few voices of reason pointing out that there is no rule stating one person has to stay in the bottom lane the whole game. Sometimes I'm in the top lane, sometimes I'm in the bottom, the point is a go where I'm needed. If you can't beat the guy on bottom then, forget 'em, go help your team get the top three points. 3-2, you still win.
I play solo games and I play games with friends and in each case, I never hear people talking about someone being assigned the specific role of laning bottom.
The point is this, there is no laning. It's game about about feint and distraction and catching you opponents off-guard. The worst thing you can do in this game is to stand around trying to hold one point all day. That will make you lose. You're not losing because of Yorick, you are losing because you are using the wrong strategy.
Finally, quite the *****ing about Yorick. I've won and lost all sorts of games with all sorts of character combinations. I've seen people go 26-2 with Olaf and I've seen people go 2-11 with him. What matters is the person controlling the character.
