Seriously, this is amazing- but the sad fact that we don't have any kind of ETA on this just makes it pointless. I woke up early thinking we'd get this today, but we might not get it for months, RIGHT?

I guess it's only fitting this comes with the Skarner patch.

Ever since this company i've grown to hate the word Soon, it's lost all meaning to me at this point, and i get huge headaches from just reading it now.

Is it coming before the Dota 2 release? If you don't have the intention of using this new game mode to compete with the release of your biggest competitor then WTF are you doing?

We met up with a bunch of the biggest gaming media outlets in the world earlier this week to give them their first look at League of Legends: Dominion - and get their hands on it right from the start!

In this thread, I'll be detailing all of the news around the interwebs as stories surface. Here we go!

Joystiq

"Dominion certainly turns the genre on its head, in a way that retains the elements that are now standard, and tweaks the gameplay in brand new ways. Riot promised players that it would do something "surprising," and it wanted to bring something new to the genre, so Dominion seems destined to enable both goals."

IGN
http://pc.ign.com/articles/118/1186028p1.html
"Which is fine, because Dominion, an entirely new game type for League of Legends, is more exciting than a rollercoaster built on top of a giant rollercoaster car that is actively moving on another rollercoaster. On fire."

Eurogamer
[URL2]http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-08-04-league-of-legends-dominion-preview[/URL2]
"This represents an enormous addition to a game that has been traditional, almost conservative in adhering to its DotA-influenced style of play, and where the focus has almost always been on the development of new characters or new tactics. This Riot has started a revolution, and one that has arrived at just the right time."

Kotaku
[URL2]http://kotaku.com/5827657/league-of-legends-gets-new-fast+paced-game-mode-map/gallery/1[/URL2]
"Riot Games describe Dominion as an "accelerated version of the classic League of Legends" with matches lasting about 20 minutes. Gamers will have their first chance to check out the game later this month at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, and later at PAX Prime in Seattle."

Destructoid
[URL2]http://www.destructoid.com/preview-league-of-legends-dominion-207917.phtml[/URL2]
"Riot Games has addressed this issue by introducing something entirely unheard of in the genre. Enter Dominion, the newest gameplay mode that overhauls the classic system to accommodate a more fast-paced, action-packed gaming experience."

ZAM
[URL2]http://www.zam.com/story.html?story=27239[/URL2]
"In a nutshell, Dominion is League of Legends distilled into pure adrenaline."

MMORPG.com

More coming soon!
Sick of reading about your upcoming features Shurelia. Release something.

What was going through your heads at riot when you told us literally it wouldn't be soon, and then in this announcement told us "soon"?
