One Tier List to rule them all
Updated May 24, 2014.
Hello, I'm Sauron. I have a Dominion MMR rating of over 3000, a solo queue win difference of over +800, have played in over a hundred Dominion tournaments and at one point was recorded as the highest rated player in the world across all modes. This is my horn. Toot toot.
My average solo queue is 4 hours long at peak times, so I don't have much patience for playing Dominion anymore. However I still update this thread every few patches by spectating and discussions with top players, and reading general feedback and hypothesizing points brought up.
These lists are for high Elo meta / solo queue. Tournament usage and strategy is also considered, but not the results or statistics.
Top-down, left-to-right, you know the drill.

Tier 2 - Strong and also has the tools to deal with ganks, either with range or CC.
Tier 3 - Balanced, can generally be played like a 1v1 lane in other modes.
Tier 4 - Doesn't have the kit or has been overnerfed for SR's laning phase.
Tier 5 - Those are my shoes, you are a dog, they don't even fit!
No comments, compliments, counterpoints, elbows on the table, documented facts, logical arguments, sexy sauntering, intelligent discussion, divine judgments, sassing or hands-on-hips strutting.
Only trolls, flames and orcs please -- let's keep Mordor as Mordor.
Dominion matchmaking to rule them all, dominion matchmaking to find them,
Dominion matchmaking to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
morde last place on top lane tier makes me sad.
WHY WOULD YOu DO THIS
The sad mummy is sad.
So Lulu is going to be banned every game now. Cool.
Needs ranking of skins.
Gotta go with bunny teemo.
So how do we counter Jax in blind?
He's everywhere around the 1600 elo.
Akali missing in the bot lane tier list.
Edit: And Amumu missing in top.
