If they think they can keep Dominion balanced by focusing on items instead of champions. There will be a subset of champions that are much better at this game mode than all others and they WILL be the only ones played unless Riot does something.

Proof? Look at 3v3. All you see is Singed, Tryn, Mundo, Jax and a few others over and over again. Unless they pull a Mundo and nerf some of the characters that dominate Dominion but are balanced on SR or even bad on SR like Mundo was then Dominion will be unfun as 3v3.


TL;DR; Some characters will be really good at Dominion and they will have to be changed unless they want Dominion to fail like 3v3 has. Even if they do people will rage because it will affect SR and cause still cause rage.

I agree about 3v3, and I also think you MAY be right about that, but at least give it a chance, play a few games before any final decisions.

They can't actively balance two maps around character abilities at once.

There WILL be best champions on dominion.

Look at it this way too- there will ALWAYS be a best champion no matter what game mode we're playing. It's just the nature of the game.

This dominion idea is going to fail so hard. LoL spells doesn't and won't go together with the gameplay. Lots of changes should be expected imo.

Man has a point. And look at what champs are better for 3v3 and which ones are better in 5v5. Dominion will just add to that change up of strategic choices. And I will be extremely sad faced if Dominion turns out to be a flop. I was looking forward to a change of pace in this game.

Wouldn't have mattered, changing items effects all champions while changing the stats on one champions really only effects that champion.

Any item they change or add that effects tanks will almost definitely help all tanks equally unless you start making items to specifically buff one character which would be a really bad idea.

There are already Heroes that are better on Summoners Rift than there are on Twisted Tree Line.
ex. Tanky Heroes are more dominant, heroes that can go through terrain are also dominant, New Map New mode is gonna be just like that but all heroes will still be viable on all maps

True but the major issue with treeline is tanky dps, and it will likely be similar with dominion in that one specific type of character dominates so they can control it through items. Im sure there will be tiers just like there is in rift, but I'm confident it will be better off than TT.

If you build against them then you can easily beat a tanky dps team
