Sick of the Meta? Sick of getting reported for playing the champs you wanna play? Sick of the bland, passive playstyle? Sick of farming for 20 minutes only to lost the game because X player died twice to the same person and now that person is fed? Do you find yourself raging all the time over games due to frustration? Are you having fun anymore?

Are you sick of Summoners Rift?

Come join the Dominion community, there's a tight knit, friendly group of skilled players waiting to show you the ropes of Dominion. In case you didn't know, it's a CTF/KOTH gametype with fast paced action and lots of varying styles in how to approach it and you can be successful with ANY champion.

If you're interested I suggest you check out the official Dom forums, the dominatedominion.com forums and join the in-game dominatedominion chat room where the heart of the community hangs out, including most of the top tournament players and community leaders.

Here's a link to a GREAT "Do's and Don'ts of Dominion" list on the Dominion forums.

Here's a link to some sweet advanced Dominion tips/strats/tricks from one of the very top rated Dominion players http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=1949008

Here's a link to a thread on the Dominion forums where people show Dom some love, lots of ex-SR players especially http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=1846052

Here's a link to www.dominatedominion.com where a lot of the top Dom players post, so it's a great place to get questions answered an also a good spot to read some beginners guides. There's also some stream links there so you can see Dominion played live and possibly learn a bit about the mode before jumping in.

Again, be sure to join the "dominatedominion" in-game chat room for well informed Dominion tips/tactics/discussion

FOR THOSE WHO WOULD LIKE INFORMATION ON THE COMPETITIVE DOMINION SCENE

I present, the NESL!

The Structure:

1.) The tournament will be held Monday evenings starting at 9:00PM EST.
2.) It is a 32 team tournament, single elimination. Since there a limited number of slots each week, sign up your team ASAP!
3.) Picks and bans are to be done through the in-game Tournament Draft Mode system.
The higher seeded team must host the Tournament Draft custom match and be on the left side of the lobby.
Teams should take screenshots of the champion picks and bans before the match begins, and then attach them to the respective match page on the NESL site.
If your team wins a match, please take a screenshot of the post-game screen showing all the players involved and attach it to the match page. This assists us in submitting our prize request to RIOT.
4.) Seeding is determined with the final place that your team earned in the previous week's tournament. If your team did not participate in the previous week's tournament, you will be randomly seeded under the lowest earned seed.
5.) It is the responsibility of every team (high seed and low seed) to contact their opponents to ensure that matches start on time.
If your opponents are not prepared to start the Tournament Draft game within 15 minutes of the event start time (9:15 EST) or the end of their last match, upload time-stamped screenshots to the respective match page showing your attempts to contact your opponents, and then notify an admin who will advance you to your next round.
Teams who are not prepared to begin their matches on time will be disqualified.

The Prizes:

1.) Prizes will now be awarded each week, instead of once per month.
2.) Prizes will be awarded to all members of the victorious teams following the tournament finals.
3.) All-new prize structure!
1st: $20 RP
2nd: $15 RP
3rd and 4th: $10 RP
There are no prizes below 4th place.

As you can see, we are no longer awarding prizes for 5th through 8th place since prizes are awarded weekly. However, if demand for this event forces us to open the bracket beyond 32 teams, we will adjust the prize structure to complement a larger playerbase!

We hope you and your teams will enjoy the changes we've made to improve the Conflict on the Crystal Scar, and we look forward to seeing you all Monday night!

EDIT: Link updated for the tournament on 1/30/2012.

Dominion offers a fast and challenging gameplay. While many state that it lacks competitive potential, I can tell you from being in one of the top teams in Dominion, there is a LOT of strategy, and it all revolves around good combat, and good item purchases. Infact, its much more competitive because you can always eke back a win if you work really well as a team and manage to outplay the opponent.

How often in SR can you come back from a 10 kill deficit and get a win?

Pretty often. Dominion is horribly balanced

Just yesterday I played in a game where my team came back from a 150 point deficit to win 1-0, it was absolutely thrilling.

In dominion you're never 100% out of the game until the game is over, can you say the same about SR?

I know a lot of you tried Dom when it first came out and wrote it off as a frag fest, but judging a game mode based off it's first week in existence is not a sound method of evaluation. Dom has come a very long way since those first few weeks and deserves another shot by a lot of you, especially those frustrated with the state of SR.

SR is perfectly balanced?

After 400 dominion games I can say with some certainty that Dominion is NOT horribly balanced, even more so in draft mode.

That's the problem... You shouldn't be able to come back from anything. If you are losing by that much a game shouldn't allow you to come back. There should be a point where coming back is isn't possible at least. But other problems with Dominion no matter what you say is that the balance is horrendous and the game is honestly not as competitive as SR if it was then you guys on the "top" teams would have better SR ranked stats than you do.
