Posting a game where you did that with a premade and won, against a PUG with a QoT and Reg? Thats your arguement? You played a premade against a pug, first off. Second off, a pug with a Qot and a Reg - the two weakest DG in any kind of competetive game. Anecdotal evidence is never good, but at least get try to get better anecdotal evidence. Note that they are the weakest DG in part due to the complete and utter lack of interrupts or stuns. Try gettign that flag lock off every time against a sedna with silence and pounce, an oak that isn't stupid with his penitence, or a frost TB. And then bam, you've lost the flag. And are under itemized. So anytime you try to get that flag back, they kick your ass. Suddenly the warscore game goes the other way. Basically, don't bother flag locking until you can afford to carry ports around with you - then if someone trys to get that flag back, you port in and blow them off of it. if all three of them come to take it, the person in that lane drops a lock on it, and then falls back. If they stay for the lock to drop, everyone ports in and again, you lose since you are underitemized. What flag locks are really for is to drop one and then retreat past it - if someone chases you, bam tele gank. Or portals and gold mine flags, which are close enough to their crystal for the itemization to not matter. Or for shopping trips. And, after a certain point in the game on cata, the xp flag in the middle.
