Ive been playing on summoners rift ever since i started playing league back in january and have 250+ wins in normal games.. i kinda want to get into dominion but dont know much about team comp. And which roles go where... I usually take mid lane in summoners rift and play ap champs such as ahri, kennen, katarina, zyra, diana etc.. but idk where these champs would "lane" as u could say.. any help would be appreciated!

Hey first of All Welcome to the Crysal Scar, glad you decided to give the map a chance; so you enjoy Aps don't you let me say that Ahri, Kat, Zyra and Diana are more than viable here, i have no insight on kennen though


Anyways it's always good to see a new face that wants to learn and i want to provide some useful links

Nekrogen's Begginner's guide to Dominion: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...php?p=17877990

this will be useful to get a hang on the game and some of the tactics and team comps you can employ here

Sauron's Guide:http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...=intergalactic
it has tips that are useful to beginners but it assumes you know the basics of the map, has three tier lists, insight about team composition and wall jumping and a brief description and one build path for almost every champion (it doesn't mean that that's the only build path for that champion though)

Also searchon youtube for Vatoclan's and Fourtcourtjester's channels in which they stor eimportant Dominion matches from an important Dominion tournament that takes palce every saturday.

good day, and hope i helped!!, Welcome to Dominion yet again n_n!!

If an enemy is running away from his tower at almost no health, and you have a choice to cap the tower or run after him for a kill, cap the tower.

Matches are won by capping towers, not killing champs for points. Dom101.

edit: Here's a good Tier list on how good champions are either Top or Bot lane. http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=2152948

Glad to see you're interested in learning Dominion =D.

Start by reading Sauron's awesome guide here: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=2244698

Once your done looking through all of the general strategies and the builds for your favorite champions, join the DominateDominion channel in the client and ask around for some people to play games with! Most of them will be happy to help you learn the positioning and decision making you'll need to be competitive with Dominion, as well as give you build order and team comp advice.

Well, it's an ok-ish list, as long as you remember Rengar is more like tier 4 than cheesecake tier...

And Jax is pretty weak early with no effective AOE ability... I've never seen him do even reasonably well bot till mid game once he gets some scaling and items going and can just kill the enemy champ reliably. Jax bot cheesecake is... far beyond my experience.
