Anyone have a clue how balancing issues will be resolved for the game now that there will be 3 different game types? It would seem that 3v3 5v5 and 5v5 control will cause issues with balancing especially since Dominion looks more like a damage dealing type with a lot of 1v1 2v2 3v3 battles where a traditional support would pale in comparison to a carry.

I'm just wondering how patches will effect play and champs considering which map will be the basis of the changes (summoners rift or dominion)

They are balancing Dominion around items, not champs.

Uh.. ok? That doesn't really answer his question one bit, not to mention your response is completely incorrect and invaluable. Are you implying that Evelynn can buy an item to deal with Jax in a balanced way? Can Jax buy that same item? If so, you go back to champion balance, not item balance.

actually, it is 100% correct and valuable. Riot has said multiple times that the new, Dominion-only items will balance Dominion, not changes to champions (which they will not do).
as for your example, I would buy Sword of the Divine to deal with Jax and the new Hextech Sweeper to deal with Evelynn.
