For those who dont know promote was a summoner spell that was removed in LOL beta,the spell makes a regular minion into a greater minion,even greater than super minions,it was removed coz ppl would spam it and that would result in unstopable pushes.So how they prevent from that happening in Dominion??

Promote stacking is effectively impossible in Dominion due to some modifications we've made to how Promote works. You'll see what those are after Gamescom and PAX.

I assume that you can only promote that big new minion that only spawns once per wave. Did I guess right? :-)

promoted creeps are no longer a super minion but just a normal one with aura?

Promoted creeps used to have an aura... it was still just better overall to use all 5 at once though.

It could. As with most of the new Dominion features we'll see what the community feedback is and judge from there.

It's pretty obvious how it's limited. Notice those tiny melee minions with the club arms? Only those ones can be promoted.

What about the original reason Promote was removed?

A premade could all take Promote, and push down middle lane with 5 indestructible promoted minions.
