So massively has been posting a lot about dominion....Here's another!

http://massively.joystiq.com/2012/03...dy-for-ranked/

It is an interesting read and the title is not as it would appear. If anything he makes an argument for ranked.

I do agree with him on one thing, most of the cast is really good or useful on dominion.

I don't agree with this part of the article.

Dominion isn't balanced because of Falcon... erm, Rammus

Unlike Summoner's Rift, Dominion's viable champion list is huge. Although I suspect it will shrink a little as the game gets more and more "figured out," I can list around 60 champions that have "overpowered advantages" on Dominion. I'm also of the firm belief that Tier 1 is much larger, probably composed of half that number. Although there is no pro scene to analyze, the high-level Dominion experts vary tremendously in their opinions. Some still believe that Akali is Tier 1 despite her nerfs. Some think Heimerdinger is practically god tier. Some think Gangplank is undisputably the best character. I happen to disagree with all of these things, but what these differences of opinion tell me is that the top level of play has a lot of diversity.
There is a definite small top tier of dominion champs which consists of Kassadin, Yorick, Poppy, Urgot and Rammus.

Riot may be more concerned with the size of the God tier than with the small size of the "bad" tier.

He makes special mention of Rammus and Kassadin.

Rammus is spot on S tier, Kass less so but his point about mobility is true. Poppy I can see being an issue but I actually haven't seen Poppy's soloing teams in Dominion.

Urgot and Yorick are by no means S tier in dominion though. Good, but certainly not game breaking.

But as long as we have enough bans to get the problems out of the way, balance isn't that bad.

What ****ing "top players" has he been talking to? Anyone who analysed the NESL tourny, or asked players from it, would not get any of the responses he seems to think are "common"

So confused by stupidity in this
