Now while dominion may not be as good as SR it's not garbage. I personally use it to test out new champions since bots blow.
Actually the community wanted MC, then Riot said "Nah they want something completely different, not just Magma Chamber."

And they were wrong overall, I don't think dominion is a failure, but I certainly never have a real desire to play it.

Play about 20-30 games of Dominion. 95% chance that you'll want to keep coming back

It's so easy to pick out the people that haven't played more than 15-ish games of Dominion.

Because dominion was created almost solely for the purpose of encouraging e-sports. Summoner's rift isn't very fun to watch, and once you start watching a team's habits you can tell who is going to win. Summoner's rift requires a lot of micro strategy that non-league players wont understand. Dominion is faster pace, and can change sides at any time. It rewards the latest action preformed, instead of many small good actions over the period of a game. Essentially, a noob team could beat a pro team at Dominion, its possible simply because the game is based more off of luck, and less off of good teamwork and strategy.

Dominion works well for e-sports because its easy to understand what's going on, and the drama and tension between two teams build naturally for a viewer.

TLDR: Dominion wasn't created for us to play, it was created for e-sports fans to watch.

Classic usually takes me an hour. Dom usually takes me 18 min or so but I also have had 6 to 10 minute games quite often. So I can finish 3-4 dom games in the time it takes me to finish 1 classic. More IP, Less problematic afks, as it only affects one game.
