I was reading through this thinking "man finally some riot responses!" then i noticed the timestamps and realized these are a year old. I'm still new to the dominion community and it seems like nothing has changed since then. Maybe just that the community is smaller still...

Obligatory bump to preserve Dominion history.

...although people might hate my guts for stirring this up again.

I hate to say it, Golly, when I opened this up, I knew where this was going, and funny that Dominion GD threads keep getting moved back here, from this long back. Stez007 said it best under the first Riot post. Give it a read:

Since you don't and won't do that, **** off and move this back to GD.

Our goal with Dominion has always been to create a powerful and engaging game mode that pushes the envelope of the MOBA genre. There are lots of ways to approach that, and we don't want to talk about something you might not actually see in the game. That's never a good experience for you as a player.

That doesn't mean we're sitting still, though; it just means we're keeping our work behind closed doors until it's strong enough to be examined and scrutinized. I appreciate how passionate you guys are and that you took the time to post your concerns in this thread. Sorry for the "no comment," but I hope I've at least given you some insight into how we think about problems and how much we care about our players' experiences in League. (Hell, they put it in my title.)
More than a year and a half later reading this again with what's been done with Dominion.. I am sad. Riot you made a grown man cry.

Good guy Stez. He said it just right.

Here's what we know about Rioter's and Dominion as of 03/20/2012:
  • Phreak - 12W / 4L
  • Classick - 7W / 3L
  • RiotGuinsoo - 31W / 17L
  • ricklessabandon - 162W / 143L
  • DarkShurelia - 8W / 6L (doesn't even work for Riot anymore and played more than Classick >_<)
  • Morello - 18W / 8L
  • IronStylus - 6W / 3L
  • Fruitstrike - 14W / 8L
  • hohums - 45W / 41L
  • Jesse Perring - 7W / 4L
  • Tamat - 16W / 14L
  • Rinoa - 10W / 8L
  • RiotRunaan 4W / 3L
  • subninja - 15W / 9L
  • Serif - 6W / 8L
  • ItzMattu 30W / 32L
  • RiotLykaeus - 24W / 29L
  • Evil IncarNATE 2W / 7L
  • RiotMontag - 10W / 15L
  • Illusia - 18W / 30L


After randomly checking 20 Rioters, I see only ONE with more than 100 games played. That's pretty dang sad given that a dominion game 1/3 the length of SR. How can we expect them to take it seriously when they themselves don't even play it? I sure hope they have normal accounts that they play incognito under.


Does Riot even care about Dominion? Listen, we're not asking for the stars, heck, I'm not even asking for anything outside of "Hey Dominion community, we care about your game mode and we have plans for you that we are working on." Give us something to hold on to, the silence is now what is driving us away and stirring our pots.

I bet this hasn't changed.

Certainlyt, Xelnath, and Riot Silver played it a little. Ran into them some time ago. Played with RiotBahamut and Scarizard too.

So, how about a progress update on the work behind closed doors? >.> How about Dominion pushing the envelope of the MOBA genre maybe?
