riot is better than me , because i fail to see why melee won't be op in 1vs1 if ranged are not op in 5vs5

Of course, i might be overthinking the things. Better wait for Dominion to be released in order to confirm anything.
Sort of like how Dr. Mundo sucks in summoner's rift (in most team comps) and dominates in twisted tree line (in most team comps)?

Im assuming this is where strategy comes into play. Teams will likely have a couple beefy melees to commando around the map solo taking points. casters and support and whatnot will be in small groups. When it comes down to it though even if melee proves to be much stronger you're STILL going to need some variety on your team

Will Dominion affect future champion balance?

Of course it will. I'm not sure what this thread is about because all of the worries posted in this thread are nothing new when you look at twisted treeline and summoners rift. They both have different gameplay, different mechanics, etc. Don't pull an Elementz where you start QQing about something before you even try it.

Yeah I agree. It's not like you can make all champion EXACTLY balanced in SR, since it also depends on the meta.

That said, Support champions (other than maybe Janna) don't seems to have a place in Dominion =P.
