"Dominion" released and leaked information. Read now!
 
Well if you're looking at this thread, you probably watched the glimpse of what Riot is going to implement in the future. If not, let's review "Dominion", it's all about capturing and defending "objectives", and if you manage to capture one of these "objectives", it will slowly start to help deteriorate the enemy Nexus (Which means your team's vicotry). To capture these "objectives", you have to stay and hold it down for a few seconds (with minions helping), but if you become under attack during the process, control for the "objective" will become disrupted.

My thoughts on how the gameplay will end up are constant attacking to one-another, there will or will not have time to defend the "objectives" (if so, your team will lack in strength in order to capture/invade other bases), and overall will just turn into a deathmatch arena, where you kill them first and capture later. I think that it will sorta feel like TF2's gameplay (Everyone's rushing in, with people assaulting the objective points, people defending the objective points and people sneaking in to kill people)

Now looking at the info released (with leaked images), I say that certain things will be tweaked just for this certain map.

1.) Such as wards/elixirs/spells becoming unavailable with new items/spells to replace them (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/834/wards.png/) In there, you can also see a probable future item called Odyn's Veil, probably there to replace Banshee's Veil for that map.

2.)The map will be very small (http://i266.photobucket.com/albums/i..._3093380_o.jpg) Supposedly smaller than Twisted Treeline, and if you look closely there aren't any jungle camps.

3.) Action paced map (http://itsnothax.com/2011/08/riot-ga...ue-of-legends/) With many things to do and focusing on getting the job done, you'll wonder if it will really be done in over 20 minutes.

4.) Although this quote from a guy may not be true, we can only say it is plausible for now...

"So far this is what we know: The map will have a global buff that increases mana regen and decreases recall and re-spawn time. All champions start at lvl 3 with and 1375 gold. Champions level faster and gain more gold. Just like in WoW's Arathi Basin battleground, there will be 5 control points that you can take control of. The more you have the faster the enemies Nexus goes down. By capturing control points you also spawn minions that help capture other control points. It takes 4-10 seconds to take a control point with a champion. The process goes faster if more champions and minions are attacking it. If you take any damage during this process, it will get disrupted. The control points will attack the controlling teams enemies but only if a controlling teams champion is defending it. There will be power ups that give a speed boost, you can get them by channeling at the center of the map. There are also health power ups. New items are added that help champions who might feel underpowered in this map. Wards, elixirs and some other items are unavailable. Quests pop up during the match, bonus damage is dealt to the enemy Nexus if you complete them. Teleport and Fortify unavailable, replaced with Promote and Garrison. Promote upgrades a minion, Garrison buffs or nerfs your or the enemies tower." - Post from (http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Dominion)

Now with all this newly found information in your head, feel free to post your opinion down below and also help bump this thread up for future people to be aware of these features to come with the "Dominion" map.

tl;dr Too bad, you'll have to read it fully to understand and get the full glimpse of what's to come.

Edit: There is more information, please enjoy

Agreed, but I guess Riot's trying to go on the approach of "Agressive and Fast Paced" gameplay. But there might be other ways to get buffs...

Wow. If this is released before 2012 I will take a whole new look at Riot.

It's getting the word out either way, there's no bad in that is there? But regarding about the screenshot, I believe some items like the Banshee's Veil will become tweaked for that map to adjust the certain dynamics of the gameplay. Basically, they're changing items that will be OP in that map, in-order to balance out the game.

X98GPPTOtIjS9xRT 08-05-2011 02:12 AM

I didn't imply it was bad.

They said that we will be able to test out the map "...at GamesCom (August 17-21) in Europe and at PAX Prime (August 26-28) in North America. League of Legends: Dominion will make it into your daily play schedule shortly after PAX."
