Dominion looks like it will be a ton of fun to play and I am really excited for it.

I was wondering if riot could do a map style like this where you roam around the map and don't just start from one side like in SR where they could actually put in 3 teams for a 5v5v5 since you're not pushing lanes, but capturing positions.


Would be very hectic but when all the teams collided it would be a blast

There's a lot of the UI that's build around the fact that there are two teams in the game as opposed to three, but discounting the tech cost of actually doing this the idea sounds fun.

Thanks, very cool! I do like the 2 team idea I just know you guys are looking to shake the MOBA genre up a bit and felt this might add another flavor.

I agree. "Dominion mode" definitely seems like it could be multi-team friendly

It sounds really fun in theory...

But the game is already so action-packed that I think Demacia might explode if we invited a third team in each game.

Chaos is fun.

Extra chaos is extra-fun.

Demacia also needs to be nuked.

Yes, multi-team games must be tossed onto that huge "to-do" list over at Riot! xD

Garen wont let that happen

A third team could add all kinds of fun stuff because you may have 2 teams trying to focus the team in the lead and turn on each other and just make it all the more chaotic.

But I do agree 5v5 on its own can get pretty intense already

So that should be your next mode >=D A mode with, say, 3v3v3 (I don't like how champion-dominated 3v3 is, maybe it could be avoided to some extent here, but I think with more than 3 players on each team there might be TOO much going on haha)

Actually, thinking about it, 3v3v3 would be 9 players, so that's even less skills than you'd care about in a 5v5 match anyway. So 4v4v4? 12 sets of skills going off and enough damage to keep it from being as tanky dps dominated as TT?

Wooooo buddy.

Don't think about it and just do it.
