Not to burst your bubble here but team comp doesn't matter much. Maybe having 2-3 champs that synergize well works but you NEVER have a 5v5 team fight or anything of the sort. Champs that excel in team fights like fiddle and galio are left out to dry in dominion.

(especially with the low death timers and low gold/reward from killing champions)

For example, champions that can clear waves and push very well can use minions to put pressure on many different capture points without having to engage the other team. Champions that have high mobility can easily move around the map capturing undefended points or distract and lead the other team on a long chase.
not really.Why would you want the minions to push? they cant stop champs they cant capture points fast at all and players ignore minions to go bd towers.i mean even the towers dont do anything.

minions are useless in dominion

Oh my...then you need to play more. There is a big difference if you solo push with a creep wave than without. ESPECIALLY with a promoted creep. Each hit from that guy alone like takes the counter down by a 1/4. With how fast this game plays, seconds matter.

team fights aren't the only kind of team work you know?

You claiming Dominion is perfectly balanced after two days is equally ridiculous.
Agreed - we know it can't be perfectly balanced on launch, but it's not as unbalanced (or even in the way) that's represented here.

This is why we wanna let it mature and then make changes.

AD champs have a obvious advantage at the moment.

Caveat I have only played 3 games so far..

What I have seen is that Ashe E is pretty useless, except for the additional gold :-)

The rest of her spells :

Q = Leave it on and forget it
W = Repeating Gun Late Game
R = Stop Capturing my turret NOW button

She is a great late game defender and her Ult can reach out and touch you

Yeah the native Penetration on the map is a little odd. But it does massively disincentivize building resists. I don't really feel it's necessary with the healing debuff.
