Upvoted OP because he makes a good point, individual skill (as we have come to know it in SR) doesn't play as big a part in Dominion.

Why would you downvote someone for telling the truth? He's not telling you to stop having fun with Dominion, he's just making an observation.

Glory I agree with you 100%. This game is Riot's lackluster attempt at inventing a new game. This gameplay is unbalanced and makes some of the champions absolutely obsolete. Its as though Riot decided to take World of Warcraft's Arathi Basin and adapt it to league. Guess what? It's terrible. I'm glad to see someone else agrees with me and that all the people who love it and say haters gunna hate will continue to play Dominion. After playing one round of Dominion I found myself embarrassed and promised myself never to play it again. Good luck to all you hardcore Riot fans. The one thing Riot should improve on however is active items. Possibly a dagon or sheepstick. d o t a T W O

The forum is filled with people who are looking for ways to justify why they aren't good at SR... It's sad but true.

Hell, I posted saying dominion was fun as hell, just less skill-based, and I got downvoted to hell.

He didn't say it was terrible...

I also say there is a lot less skill involved, but that doesn't make it terrible or not fun. Summoners Rift is LoL. Dominion is for taking a break after a long, frustrating loss or when you want to run around and rape with mundo or something.

They did a GRAT job with it. It is what it should be.

Lol at SR taking skill.
All you do is snowball with the right champ selection and get fed then the enemy team stands no chance.
On CS, everyone is equally fed and it depends on what you do with your feed.

Just because you're not the greatest at it doesn't mean it takes no skill

Look at the current ladders after the reset. All the 2k players are at the top again. You know what that means....?

And no champ can 1v5, this isn't dota...

etc etc etc..

But "what you do with your feed" basically amounts to the same thing. Run up, press your buttons. There's not a lot of twitch skill involved with LoL. So in actuality, SR is more balanced because you have an opportunity to overcome better champion picks. And you have 5 players on your team in one fight to work through that.

If anything dominion throws champion imbalance into a harsher light because it's smaller skirmishes (fewer teammates to peel for you, etc) and you have no chance to shut the enemy down in lane.

if anything i enjoy the fact that I don't have to yell at my teammates to Ward.

I swear if i have to yell at my entire team ONE MORE TIME for not warding I'm going to go crazy

"Why hello there gents, i see you've been enjoying the beta of Dominion.
