yup- so many games thrown in the trash because a guy insists that capping is the way to win, even if he dies every single time.
The asinine martyr bonus only encourages this behavior, really needs to change. Too many say *deaths dont matter, kills dont matter, the point is to cap*. Well, if youre dieing and not killing, the other team is only growing stronger and stronger than you, and by midgame you have no hopes of being able to hold any of your turrets, much less continue to cap any.
At the same time- when you have a dug in top team holding the turret from you- dont just sit there poking away and hoping something is going to change. Go grab their mid, get them to pull off the turret, then ambush and win the fight, then go grab top.
None of this is hard to learn, but some people are stuck on an SR mentality or something.
