AD is way too powerful on Dominion. Casters can barely keep up, yet there is a map-wide Armor penetration buff ?!?!? Someone tell me they plan to fix this or a really good reason Riot only wants AD played on this map.

Lol, you do realize you can build items to counter ad carries if they're getting fed right?

its always a good idea to not risk going 1v1 and go with your tank instead.

If you go with 5 AP team, its your fault for 1) not asking your teammateas pick better 2) not QDodging


Btw I as Fiddle consistently won over Trynda in 1v1...
Tho maybe Fiddle es #1 too good, never die.

The reason Riot implemented the auras is that they wanted Dominion to be different than SR. That being said, they wanted it to be more fast paced than SR(it's fast it's fun!), accomplishing that by making everyone a bit more squishy. Why the discrepancy between the arp aura and mpen aura? Because MR is much more rare and Armor is much more abundant. Every champion in the game gains scaling Armor and those that do get scaling MR get it at a much lower rate per lvl than Armor.

By early-mid game it's not uncommon for the majority of players on either team who haven't built additional defenses to have almost double the armor of their mr. Considering Dominion starts at lvl 4(technically) the game is already sqewed toward the more armor heavy half. Lastly you also have to keep in mind that it's %pen, not flat pen or flat reduction, and that the last values of armor or mr provide the most damage reduction. So while you take a larger % off the higher number the champions in general are still mitigating more physical damage than magic damage.

Stop folling yourselves. AD+Auto Attack+Ad Speed+A Little Life steal will trump you AP ulti+ combo. You over extend on that tower to clear waves. Sorry Annie, Xin comes from the bushes....GG. You wont even scratch him..
