I can't really say anything either because my fps and computer starts to go on life support when playing Dominion (5-8 fps, lag that freezes the game for seconds at a time, delayed abilites, and issues with clicking champions).

I must point out something player related when I say this because I managed to get 1st in my team in most of these game even though I was suffering from terrible admounts of lag. So I mainly focused on roaming and capturing points and only confronting when faced with it.

Im guessing people arn't use to the capture the base meta and play Dominion like any capture the points in Cod.

However, I have a lovely 20 fps and no computer problems when playing on Summoners Rift. Explain why this is happening would be lovely.

Your champ balance for Dominion sucks. Bottom line. You won't catch me in there the same as you never see me in 3v3. You can't counter anyone because you can't deny people gold.

Where the hell are the AD Caster items for Dominion?

Bro, i've been saying this from day 1, i mean remember when they released the Soraka rework with the Sona/Taric/Nidalee changes? they even said it was all because of dominion, but the fact of the matter its like they release champs that were somewhat balanced for an RPG game, and then expect the same champs to work in an FPS game (just an example), its ******ed. In SR/TT you could counter Tanky DPS by denying them gold in lane, in CR you cant`

I've experienced Rammus being almost unbeatable if played even remotely well. His speed and tankiness are just too much for this map. He can effectively be anywhere immediately, and the worst you'll do is make him run away faster than you can hope to be to another node.

Heimer also seems extremely powerful on this map. Making him leave a node is next to impossible, you basically need 3-4 people just to move him off a node. Yes, you can let that node sit and go cap another, but if you do, he leaves turrets there and roams as well, creating the problem elsewhere.

Overall, pretty fun times on this map, but there just seems to be a few champions that just shine over any other drastically. I'm not sure if you guys plan to balance around this in the future, or if it'll just be a "eh, play draft Dominion so you can ban them" kind of thing.

Exactly. Poppy, if played half way competently, will always get her farm and become insanely good. You can't stop her.
