well, dominion is fine and all but it does really take mages almost out of the equation.

Kass/AP shaco are good but every other mage is too immobile/low damage to be of use


Also,people don't try to team fight/use tanks, and so any squishies are even more worthless because assassins basically hand their ass back to them on a plate before they can even get out of the spawn pool.

Personally, I prefer dominion. Losing a 20 minute game is hardly as big a let-down as losing a 45-55 minute game in SR or TT. Also, the laning phase is a boring phase, imo, but it's extremely important as well. I like dominion because it feels like the laning phase was just taken out, and all we have is the roaming/skirmishes and teamfighting phases. I find those phases to be so much more enjoyable than passive laning.

I don't find Dominion to be all that enjoyable IN MOST CASES. I feel like Dominion requires your teammates to be better than they (usually) are. By "better" I mean "more coordinated" which isn't encouraged by the First/Second/Third rankings. In fact, I think the game-by-game rankings are the worst thing about the game mode. It encourages competition between teammates, and it makes it so that when I play as Alistar or Maokai and go to defend a turret against any number of enemies, I'm doing an extremely vital job in terms of winning, but I'm going to look like an awful player when I die and end with the lowest points.

I enjoy Dominion as Talon, but I love Talon in all game modes and would play him exclusively if we didn't need tanks so often.

**The rankings thing really only matters if you're solo queuing for it. If you're bro-ing it up with some friends, it doesn't matter because you'll be more coordinated.

***I know that tanks are low scoring champions even in SR, but they have assists to show that they were at least contributing. I feel like I'm contributing, even babysitting sometimes, and I'm getting no recognition for it on Dominion.

I just don't like it.

Nothing to do with skill or any other psychological BS you guys may want to spout. I just don't find it as fun as SR.

Since when was a person not allowed to find a game boring just because they think it's boring? Why does being bad/good at it have any sway in the matter?

I'm not saying that. I respect you for voicing your opinion, and owning up that it may be due to some personal aspect rather than the gamemode itself sucking.

Oh, and Grunnd also hit the nail on the head, but since I do have more losses than wins, I thought I'd come up with something legitimate sounding for why I don't play Dominion.

I just kinda don't like it. I like the idea, but I just don't enjoy it as much as SR.

I didn't like the balance and it didn't play like summoners rift so i lost interest.

I've said since its release that if dominion was its own game designed from the ground up with appropriate characters, skills, and balancing it would be extremely fun.
