Excellent info, thanks for taking the time to bring it together.

Rammus, Sona, Sivir, Master Yi, Ezreal, Ashe, Miss Fortune, Blitzcrank

There are sooo many awesome champs that can truly do amazing in this mode, the REALLY interesting bit for me is minion spawning when you have a node.

How many minions? do minions attack each un-owned point? can you have multiple waves from multiple nodes?

Other than that I'm just waiting for videos from pax, I can't attend, got 2 jobs to keep :_(

wow my though,
madred bloodrazor removed but deathfire grasp still here. o.o nerf carry more ! ah but it's because there is no minion/jungle so wriggle removed too ?

new banshee very op to the max, i always prefered fon to banshee for my tanky dps, but the 10% less magical dmg is imba and the 600extra dmg so good, also is it aoe ? if it is omg i'm sure it gonna be nerfed into the ground, because fon is totally useless compared to op banshee. but i have to agree it's a nerf of banshee for carry tho.

btw biggest change is def the removal of madred bloodrazor, it will make so many champion unviable (all on hit champ hero like teemo, kog maw) well except if the new on hit item that chain lightning is better

Mundo is going to dominate this map. Hard to kill, nigh-immune to CC and incredible sustained health.


Mundo captures what he pleases.

He's going to be a flop. What matters in this map isn't speed but rather the ability to take on isolated enemies and win. Irelia or Xin would school him, as would Mordekaiser, who should be one of the top picks because if you 1v1 him his Q melts your face off. Mundo doesn't have what it takes to solo a tough bruiser.

Dunno, speed seems rather important. Especially given the quick capture times on points.

you mean that thing you do when the enemy team INSISTS on being one big group so you send someone top lane to push. meanwhile everyone else gots bot and mid and takes a tower?

that? oh yeah its called playing the game and not being teamfight central. wish people would do this more on my team....

@OP: Could you update the first post with Brackhar's confirmation that wards are currently disabled in Dominion?

Edit: Page 5

Should see some interesting team compositions when it comes to full teams.

I can see the "jungler" role in a summoner's being replaced by a sweeper, a fast moving, easy to escape hero who runs around on their own grabbing unguarded points and trying to make the enemy team run from place to place. With the other 4 acting as a group to fight/capture/defend.
