Most team based games do not have single draft ( BLC, WC3 WoW arena)

Single Draft is very very important in traditional DotA style games as dittos are extremely frustrating and not fun to watch. Dittos are something that will always happen since there are these super hero heroes (Brand, Ashe, Alistar, J-IV (basically top tier heroes)) these will get picked all the time. This really isn't an issue as there is no laning phase in dominion

However looking at for example BLC that has draft you can counter pick but you also get to do super combos (Alch, Inhib, Spearmaster).

I think not having single draft could really make dominion even more team based and let you get incredible synergy and awesome comps. Single draft gives a large amount of viable champs but less viable comps (Support/Carry bot meta is pretty much the main one used and very few others ever come up.) Global ulti teams don't work if they pick one global from you etc.

This would also allow "one trick ponnies" and all around great players show insane game play with champs. This is locked out of single draft because of bans/picking it so you never see HotshotGG on Nidalee taking people to school. Alistar/Gragas was always banned vs Shushei by EU teams.


Basically no bans; you take turns to pick and you see the opponents champs but you can always choose any hero you own.

Just don't play ranked. They will still need to have bans because the game is balanced around 5v5 on SR, and Dominion will likely have its own set of OP champs.
