They've stated that there will be ranked play for Dominion, but not right away. The general idea is that when the map goes live, everyone and their dog will be struggling to figure out how to play on the map, what works/doesn't, what champs rock hardest, best team comps, etc etc.

In these circumstances, rankings would be pretty much meaningless. Guardsman Bob would be sub-1200, while Joe Blow summoner who stumbled his way through all his games with Revive/Rally and no clue what he was doing would be sitting above 2000 ELO. No point in grading people on throwing things against the wall to see what sticks. Riot's going give people around a month+ to figure things out and THEN institute a ladder.

I can see the reason for waiting for a ranked ladder for dominion. Could be quite a difference from what we currently are used to..

would be more fun to play ranked dominion also :)

I think ranked Dominion should only be Premade. Then you have the best teamwork and stuff :D

Eventually. We want the balance to be well established and strategies to be understood by most active players prior to doing so.

Ya I think giving the players sometime to figure it out how the map works and the best strategy is a good idea, rather than just putting ladder mode out there and have everyone just be stuck at low elos
