In your opinion whose the worst dominion champ?

my vote has to go for Nasus, there is no time to sit there and farm your Q for 10 minutes

Nasus isn't too bad at defending points.

Morde on the other hand can't defend or capture to save his unlife.

Why do u need to farm q? 10k gold can easily buy that 30-50 damage

My worst was with Nidalee, had no success doing anything with her. Anyone do well with her yet? If so how?

Morde, Nasus can at least play utility goalie. Morde's game hinges on his astounding laning...there is no laning in Dominion.

Any "strictly caster" champions (e.g. Malzahar, Brand) or support champions (e.g. Karma, Sona). The whole point of dominion is skirmishes, 1v1 fights for the most part. Sure, Malz can drop pool + ult and smash one person's face in completely, but now what? He's got cooldown on his ult, and the game is too fast-paced to be a fish out of water like that. You have to be ready to fight immediately after the first one is over. That's why champs like Akali and Jax are so good in dominion--they're always ready to fight.

I found the effectiveness of Gankplank's ultimate a little lackluster in Dominion.

I have seen only 2 nidalees do extremely well by playing a backdoor playstyle, they just kept sneaking through the map in cougar mode taking points here and there and healing allies in the other points. Dont remember how they built her, but thats what they did and in both opportunities they completely carried their team by being super annoying.

Morde with gunblade/situational tank item or another gunblade/ga in 7-12 min is extremely, extremely powerful for 2v2s and 3v3s, you can easily 1v3 with that or even 1v4. Also has decent 1v1 burst against squishies and can defend dives quite well.

Same as Nasus, Nasus with Triforce in 6 min? Yes please.

O.o? Not sure if trolling..

GPs ult is like the best push/bd capture breaker so far imo, even better than Ashe/Ez's ult because of how annoyingly long it is and the fact that it not only covers the full area of a point but even a bit beyond. You dont use it for dmg/slow here, you use it to disrupt captures from all across the map.

To me, the only champion I think could be underwhelming is Vladimir until someone can prove me wrong in a match. He's already underwhelming to play after the very many nerfs, and in Dominion you actually have 20% reduced healing right off the bat, I just dont see it working unless its some sort of full poke team or similar.

There are caster champions that aren't burst mages, you know. Cass and Ryze for example. Ryze is tanky as all hell and because of that a good skirmisher. Cass has a good defense/kiting potential due to her AoE, the speed buff from hitting Q, and Miasma. Karthus as well for similar reasons to Cass. I've also been milling over the pro's and cons of bringing along Taric as a hybrid AP/bruiser/support character since his recent ult change, I can't really pull it off in Classic due to the fact everyone is still mired in the 0 CS support meta and threatens to feed if I try it...plus it costs a lot of gold...of which we have an ample supply here.

I agree with strictly caster and also say strictly AD isn't that good either. I think Ashe is just as bad of pick as Malz.
