It may have been done to reduce queue times





I still don't like the change that much though. Whatever.

I would pretty much guarantee that this fix has been on the radar for a while, and just made it into this build.

If it's gone forever, that's both good and bad. It was good for spotting the wonky things that matchmaking does ("sweet - I'm teamed with a group 1100 elo below me!"), however it does get rid of the elitism that existed over what was (by Riot's description) flawed information.

I agree with this assessment. It may also mean something is coming down the pipeline for Dominion.

JabeBot brought activity and competitive spirit to Dominion in the only form that a player-created tool could. It may not have been morally correct to do with normal games, but neither is Riot ignoring problems for 6 months.

Jabe, please tell me Riot did eventually call you back and that they're hiring you to implement ranked Dominion. I will be sad if all they did was interview you to see what you were doing just so they could patch it.

Anyone know of any official explanation from Riot for why this happened? I'm trying to ask on the GD forums here, but that went over about as well as you'd expect any Dominion-related thread to in GD.

this is Riot were talking about, headed up by "I needz moar Killz and less skillz" Trolllello.

They just wanted to patch jabebot out of the equation.

As if Riot is paying any attention to Dominion. Someone figured out how to do this for normal SR, so that's probably the reason it finally got shut down.
