Updated May 24, 2014.

Hello, I'm Sauron. I have a Dominion MMR rating of over 3000, a solo queue win difference of over +800, have played in over a hundred Dominion tournaments and at one point was recorded as the highest rated player in the world across all modes. This is my horn. Toot toot.

My average solo queue is 4 hours long at peak times, so I don't have much patience for playing Dominion anymore. However I still update this thread every few patches by spectating and discussions with top players, and reading general feedback and hypothesizing points brought up.

These lists are for high Elo meta / solo queue. Tournament usage and strategy is also considered, but not the results or statistics.

Top-down, left-to-right, you know the drill.
