I think the game mode itself is fun, but its so frustratingly imbalanced that I really don't even want to play anymore. Every game is Rammus/Shaco/3tankydps, it gets old

Get past your low ELO or play draft.

SR is so much better right?

Sitting in lane last hitting creeps is super fun.

Was Dominion a waste of time? As opposed to what?

If you compare it to searching for a cure to the common cold, yeah, I'd say it was a pretty big waste of effort.

On the other hand, if you compare it to what SR fanboys crave, like extending the last hitting phase for an additional 40 minutes so they can show off their elite PvP skillz by killing AI-controlled minions, no, I think Dominion was a pretty good investment.

The only way you can get me to play classic anything is to be a good friend who asks nicely. I'd rather watch LMN with my wife !

Dominion rocks ... its faced and furious with great tactics and teamwrk, yet allows fpr individual battles and team play is incredible. Classic... meh farm farm farm.

Hrm you didnt say much so let me try and figure it out. You say "you feel that dominion is a waste of time". First off to be clear this League of Legends is essence a 'waste of time' or as its sometimes called a 'passtime'. You play a game inbetween the time you need to spend working or doing other responsibilities, to pass the time between chores/responsibilities and to have some fun as well.

But you say that you feel that Dominion itself is more of a 'waste of your time' than Summoners Rift. Dominion takes much less time to play so time is not the actual factor here but something per time.

Perhaps you mean your amusement? You have more fun playing Summoners Rift so an hour long Summoners Rift game is more fun to you than 2-4 Dominion games.

Or perhaps you honor your time spent playing Summoners Rift more because you played ranked and you have a fixation on a certain number and seeming that number grow makes you feel like youve accomplished something for your time wasted playing.

In any case, its totally your choice to like or dislike dominion, just as it is to play or not play it. Personally I enjoy how fast the games are so as to not have to put my life on hold for an entire hour whenever I start a game.

I enjoy the deathmatch feel to it as well where strategy is more about the choices made in the heat of battle and not simply setting up a long and drawn out gank. that said I still enjoy SR as well, but lately ive been leaning to Dominion for any solo queue games. if friends are online then SR can be fun, but in a solo queue SR is just evil.

You know what game type sucks? DotA. Warcraft is so much more strategic and skillfull. No idea why anyone bothered making DotA in the first place. No one plays it, it's such a terribly skill-less game mode.

Haha, good one.

Amazing how "dumbing down" a popular RTS spawned one of the most popular genres gaming has ever seen (and don't bother mentioning AOS, because it was not the same thing as the hero building MOBAs we all actually love to play).
