Because "Generally" games last half as long in Dominion when compared to Summoner's Rift. Sorry if you don't like the answer, but that's what it is.

Now, either you're trolling, or you're thick-skulled.

If you play at a minimum 2 SR games and each of them lasts on average 30 minutes (using your logic), that's the equivalent to 3 Dominion games at an average of 20 minutes. Now, (disregarding the fact that you get 2 IP/Min in Dominion in comparison to their main map)taking into account that most games don't last that long, especially at lower ELOs (and they shouldn't be lasting that long unless people are far too focused on "KDA and getting an awesome score" instead of completing the map objectives). Now, let's stop talking about averages as if they matter.

You have to add at least 5 minutes to games that is spent in Q, picking and loading.

Time spent in queue has never counted towards IP gained for a game. They have nothing to do with each other.

Now if your argument were something like "The queue times for Dominion are too long and it sucks sitting in queue when I know I could be getting IP at a constant rate by queueing for SR", then you might be justified.

Even with the lower ip gains, if I am on a Dominion streak I find I gain ip much more quickly over time in comparison to SR.

Not by all THAT much, but it is by a noticeable amount.

Can't you say that differently?

its low cause your pre-mades can steamroll pugs in less than 8 minutes. Way more fun then SR in my opinion, to many try hards there.

my record time: 7:03

If you spam Dominion games you gain more XP and IP than if you spam SR games over a period of time due to the Dominion bonus.
