So since nobody plays it because the balance isn't great, Riot shouldn't try to improve the balance, when improving the balance would get more people to play it. That's a very productive line of thinking.

It's really disappointing that Riot just stopped giving a **** about dominion within a month of releasing it.

They still mention/play with it during Spotlights.
They spent a ton of time making a whole load of bots that now work in dominion. Do you know how hard it is to code something like that?

inb4 "they added those for SR too though!"
They only had to edit the original code to fit more characters, dominion requires an entirely different goal system and team play.

They do stuff with dominion all the time, people just don't see it because the COMMUNITY only focuses on SR

Also, dominion is a cesspool of mouth breathing *******.

Fixed that for you.

Here's a little life advice, if all your games are terrible, there's only one common factor between them all- you. Think you can figure out what the problem is from there or do I need to spell it out for you?

Bump. I love playing dominion, and if they focused a small group of people on balancing it, they'd make it so much more balanced and competitive-capable. Ranked would be highly reasonable.

Riot balances the game for SR. Until that changes, don't expect dominion to be balanced.

To be honest, people have been asking Riot for ages (before season 1) to balance champions differently for SR and TT. I guess you can add Dom in there now too. Is it that difficult to code for separate maps (legitimate question since I haven't the slightest idea).

At least on SR I can at least try to make plays for my team. Dominion is just constantly being outnumbered because people are getting caught out or not being in the right place.
