Dominion has so many problems I dont' even know where to begin. So I'll just rant.

but every game is 4v5

I shouldn't have to be 2200 elo to win games at 1000.

Need harsher penalties for leavers, period.

I had one guy come back from a 10 mintue afk and go "lol man dominion is a chill map who cares"


No, but you might need to be 2200 to win 2v5 at that elo. Which is fair. You shouldn't need more skill than 1400 to win a 4v5 at 1000 elo. Which is also fair. If you are better than 1000 elo you should be winning almost every 5v5.

It *can* be fun sometimes, and I actually don't experience most the glitches you experience, but I'm losing interest in Dominion for this reason: (not that unbalanced heroes isn't a big deal; it really is)

No one wants to play bottom, and the team loses. So I do it. But whenever I play bottom, my team horrendously fails at top. And vice versa. I have also lost like 10 dominion games in recently, and I'm just fed up with it.

Tanky champions with CC and gap closers are absolutely supreme, which i don't like. So people want to play other champions. I applaud trying to play things different than the meta, but in my experience, all that does is get you brutally raped.

I'm taking a break from Dom for a while for these reasons. Best of luck.

No, I have. I'm just sick of playing Maokai bottom b/c no one else I've been queuing with (1750s-1820 Elo) wants to play bottom.

If Riot's not interested in caring about Dominion, I'm not that interested in playing it anymore. I can play more champs with more success and have more fun on Summoner's Rift. That's my experience anyway.

So 1000 elo is fair because I deserve 4v5 games. I deserve to get ranked based on on well I do in games with unfair conditions.

I think that's what I'm getting here.

Speaking from experience, 5 vs 4 are most often lost when the team of 5 has one player aimlessly running around the map, trying to decide whenever to help bottom or top point while the team of 4 actually does arcane techniques like "coordination, focus fire, ganking, having a team composition where it wins equal number engagements."

I'm not sure why OP is being downvoted. Dominion has a big leaver/afk problem. Ignoring it won't make it go away. Winning a single 4v5 doesn't make it ok.

Really? It takes a gun and a pack of dogs to convince someone to take bot in my games. I think in the last 20 games, like 2 people willingly said "I want to bot."
