Dominion is less solo queue friendly than SR.

Just give it time and a sort of skill standard will be established.
I've seen Lux's take clarity, and it wasn't their first time playing the map either.

You can be down an incredible amount (100+ pts), and then your poppy or whoever just rampages the entire enemy team and you win.
Summoner's rift isn't all that different.
Jax/Nasus/Irelia spent all game farming solo top, and even though you are down several tower and an inhib, he comes down for a teamfight and you ace the enemy team and just bulldoze mid for the win.

It requires a LOT more communication and organization. Can't just go around slaughtering people randomly, with no regard to towers.

I think it is a lot easier to carry a team in Dominion. It is faster and has no phases, lanes, or jungle for your team to suck at. I have only lost 1 dominion game.

It's because Dominion uses a fresh Elo, where everyone is 1200. That means the worst of the worst and the best of the best are in the same exact bracket for Dominion. It plays exactly like season 1 ranked started.

Bad players can easily feed your game away in SR, not so much in Dominion.
But leavers are more harmful in Dominion.

This is true. At the moment I have 9 losses and 3 wins, with all of the wins being premade matches and losses from going solo queue.
