Yeeep, that Brackhar-post has been the source of 90% of our qq about ranked, as everything said after so neatly contradicts it.

Heck, I'd be happy with just a visible elo draft mode (any team size) just to get feedback on how I progress. They don't have to call it 'ranked' if they don't want to give end of season rewards for this 'lesser' mode, but throw us a bone at least.

Want to know a big balance issue with dominion? Nobody plays draft. Draft cuts down the number of balance issues drastically, but since everyone abused the queue dodge bug back in the day, nobody plays draft.

Release ranked dominion and watch a large number of 'balance issues' disappear because we don't have to play against Kassadin/Jayce every game. Games suddenly become a lot more fun

Well well, I wonder what's the hold up, then.

I'll definitely keep this thread in mind.
'
The holdup: Riot realizing they could save time resources by reworking TT and tweaking Dominion's balance in tandem with the S3 changes, to avoid having to do a second rework later.

This way when Riot makes Ranked, they aren't risking making an imbalanced mode out to be balanced well enough for Ranked and permanently ruining Dominion's image.

Given what we've seen from Xyph so far (aside from old EM being good on current Dominion), I think the wait will be worth it.

So, about two days ago i posted in a thread that i had given up on dominion ranked. then i see this thread's title and red response, thinking "ok, check it out. see what nome has to say?"

Not Nome. Ok. Read that proverbial switch is there to flip.

Smile. Happiness. Hope.

Scroll in screen. See it's a necro.

Tears of sad, sad loneliness.
