Idea: Increase the diminishing returns of speed on Dominion
How the current system works:
For each point of movement you would have above 490, that amount is reduced by 50%. So if your final movement speed was 748, it would be reduced to 490 + (748-490)*0.5 = 604. For each point of movement you would have above 415, it is reduced by 20%. So if your speed after all mods was 445, you would end with 415 + 30 * 0.8 = 439.
I think it would help out with a huge amount of the frustration that some people are experiencing in Dominion. It's not that it is impossible to win against super speedy champs, it's just annoying.
I know some of you may say "So what if it's annoying?" Well my response to that is, "Annoying un-fun gameplay is why stealth is getting a rework, and TF and pantheon ults were changed. And also why Sivir's backdooring is being looked at.It is completely in-line with Riots development goals."
Having the speed diminishing returns on speed adjusted as part of the Dominion specific buff would be a way to tone some champs down without effecting them in other game modes. Extremely fast champions promote stagnant overly-defensive gameplay. Especially due to the lack of wards.
This is not about removing the "back-capping" tactic. This is simply balancing the champions using the dominion buff that is already in-place.
