I prefer the more deliberate gameplay in Summoner's Rift, where fights are the culmination of minutes of teamwork.
Dominion just seems like a never ending series of 2v2/3v3 skirmishes.
Team composition doesn't really matter, as long as every champion is a good 1v1 fighter.

Sorry you didn't like it. I think the analysis of balance can't be accurate from your time, but if you didn't find the game fun or engaging, then is it because the experience you're looking for doesn't match up, or the execution doesn't deliver?

team fights are way more fun than farming minions so Dominion is basically my favorite parts of SR only

The minion and tower system seemed lackluster.
The buffs, with the exception of the speed buff, seemed....lackluster.

Is it just me? Thoughts? Comments?

I find dominion to be everything it was pressed to be, yes there are a few balancing issues (I'm looking at you singed and trynd) but this was beta day 1, things will balance out once it goes live and balance patches come and go.

I didn't actually encounter any real teamfights, it was all 2vs2s and 3v3s at most. A full 5v5 never happened. I actually enjoy 5v5 teamfights.

I had fun, this mode is going to be fun. There is a way to come back. Chasing low hp heroes for a kill is the way to lose if that's your strat.

The only thing that seemed lackluster was minions. You could just bye pass them to cap a point which shoulda been contested by other players but in my game, the other team was off chasing low hps for a kill instead of enforcing points.

I played Lux and won.

I'm not disappointed at all.
The game mode is pretty awesome so far i only played one game but my team was on 46 points and made a comeback against the other which had 400 points and won.

Dominion is fast paced and the tide could change any time, it's just the mode i expected it to be.
