What can be done to win a match? There are, actually, many ways to collaborate towards a victory. Killing enemies, pushing waves, capturing points, interrupting captures, the list goes on. Despite how varied Dominion is, people tend to think that offensive activity is the only way of producing a victory. Just as important as doing it’s to avoid performing actions that can give the enemy an advantage.
In this article I would like to put on the spotlight defensive play. In other words, to play safe so as to deny the opponent advantages and the chance of exploiting any of the mentioned ways that grant a victory. Aggressive play is all over the place but being reckless can easily cost your team the match. Let’s approach victory from another angle and try to replace risky actions with safer but effective alternatives.
