IMO Dominion was a waste of 1+yr development time

Honestly dominion is fun, but seems more like a mini game. If they used 1+ yr of development time on it, to me it was a waste as it does not seem like it will be a competitive map for tournaments or something that will make people want to play over the regular map or over other upcoming MOBA games.

I can think of 100 things in 5 minutes, why cant pro game developers do better in a year of time is my point?


tldr: Dominion is fun, but feels like a minigame, not a full mode that will keep peoples interest long.

I disagree I think it has a really competitive edge to it. Just because it doesn't last an hour doesn't mean its a mini game.

Hey, Arathi Basin was released for fun in WoW, that turned into a serious map for BGs. Lots of strategy went into picking the right team compositions / players to go to specific places on the map, and rotating players was strategic as well.

You never know, we just got a taste of it... Might just end up being for fun, might end up having some competitiveness to it.

-1 for being wrong
-1 for using a tldr on a two line post
-1 for "wasting time"

Now if only I could actually give -3.

It would be nice if they could give us Dominion along with the other things they've promised us (replays, observer, etc.) instead of going "Here, play with this shiny new Dominion while Mommy and Daddy work."

Because your ideas are awful and juvenile and would be awful.
