Definitely worth a bump.

I don't really play high level dominion anymore but I feel you really underrate a lot of really good champions or you just failed to mention them. I'd imagine it's probably because there are "meta" champions at high level though

Which champions do you feel should have been mentioned?

The four must-bans that I listed. Rammus I consider the most OP because of his ability to shut down virtually anyone and be anywhere on the map at all times. Got LW and tons of life steal? Yeah, he'll just go for someone else. A good Rammus is all over the place.

I don't go by win/loss statistics, I go by personal experience. Kassadin for example only has a 50% win/loss, but that's all Elos combined. Kassadin wins something more like 70% of high Elo matches.

If you're talking about the "role examples" I only wanted to list a few per role. For the second post, I'm only looking at champions people misjudge (incomplete list). For the bottom lane section, I only wanted to list frequencies. So, I don't really know what you mean by underrate.

All champions are viable in Dominion, some moreso than others since they were all designed around SR.

@sauron: wonderful guide!
Especially if he has Cleanse.

With a bit of fiddling you can get League of Stats to give you the aggregated statistics for Kass at 1800+ Elo games. With that filter in mind he's got one of the highest win-rates of any champ in Dominion. Though Janna apparently beats him out. Because JANNA!

Might just be some weird statistical hiccup. Like Galio being at the top of the list. As with any aggregated stats they should be taken with a grain of salt.

One time I was playing AP Yi and I was escaping a gank with my ult and three people exhausted me.

Like, come on.

In reading the opening post again I was somewhat surprised to find out that other people have been referring to Wolfy as 'Derpwick' as well.

Though I suppose in retrospect it shouldn't come as much of a shock.

Yeah exhaust really is the all-purpose 1 push button unless you have cleanse of some sort.

Glad you added the Sona sheen/tank aura in your guide. So many people build Sona like a AP glass cannon and the community has a minor bias that she's a not a good pick in dominion because of her reputation as a squishy healer from SR when she doesn't have gold to buy her items.

Just curious, who plays a powerful Rammus at high elo? I'd love to see a replay or VOD of some sort, because the Rammuses I generally see are longtime residents of Derpville.
