Yes please give your self lots of time on the Dominion. I know how it is to make something in code and watch the whole game mechanics fall apart like a blowing over a card house and balance.

I suggest(Probly should'nt)

1: When you beta's test the field. Try lots of combo of heroes(this way you know what hero's capabiltys)
2: Try to break it(purposely find expliots)
3: be ready to patch because for some strange reasons. real players will find the bugs alot faster then beta testers(I have no idea why... But it just seems like players trying to kill eachother find the bugs.)

You think Riot is unfamiliar with the basic concepts of game testing or something? lol
