Dude, I can't wait!

It's not a new idea. Hardly. There are scores of games out there that work off of a domination mode, but it will definitely have a perfect home here on LoL. I'm geeked!!!

This map is going to create a super stale meta. In a mode where you have to capture points, champions with movement speed and strong 1v1 capabilities are going to be king. Tanky dps/Assassins will be godlike as never before and Sona will be a must pick/ban. I'm not really excited about this map.

Just a thought, but they implied **** was going down this week, not that there would be one cool thing. IMO, one announcement does not equal **** going down. Just sayin'.

ouu...yeeesss...Jax will own on this...probably the circle map with 5 points will force to fight 2v1 or 1v1 This is Jaxradise. But...another item balance etc. We will see....hopefully not SOON (TM) but REALLY soon..

OK, who's the ******* who's been downvoting everyone saying anything positive about this announcement?

I'm pretty excited about it personally. I love KotH modes in games in general, and it'll be interesting to see how the champion balance tips in Dominion.

I just hope it will have true solo que so that lone gamers like me can join a non premade match for maximum fairness.

So ah... this isn't the big exciting announcement is it? Because it's frankly not very exciting. How about a double IP weekend? That's far more exciting.

I'm not against Dominion, but considering the epic lack of teamwork and astounding amount of stupidity present within this "community," Dominion almost becomes a with-friends-only gametype just to avoid the frustration of playing a gametype solo queue that could very well require more teamwork than a standard match already does. And for that matter, somehow I doubt my friends will find this all that interesting regardless.

I mean it's nice to see yall are doing something (assuming you ever actually release this), but for some reason I can think of all sorts of things that more people would find more interesting than this. Magma Chamber, monthly double IP days/weekends, sub-6300 IP champs, more reasonable rune prices, etc... this really pales in comparison to a laundering list of more interesting things.

@Volibar Is Dominion going to require a new client or it is going to be added into that one?

Just saying.
You don't know when this is coming out, so stop acting spoiled. I think the hype was justified if it's an announcement like this.

The only sad thing is I guess this solidifies the death of magma chamber. : ( Ahh well, they probably figured they'd rather do a new game mode than a new map that would become irrelevant like TT did.
