Dominion is stupid and it is meant for stupid players. But sadly stupid players continue to play ranked for some reason.

The map specific debuff, changes to map layout and visibility, respawn timers, capture rates, items, the scoring system (by which I mean how the nexus health ticks down, not the irrelevant player scores), quests, pacing, etc. There are a lot of things they could hit, but they don't care to look at any of them.

Also Brackhar, the lead designer for dominion, at least has said that if a champion is a problem in dominion, they are probably also a problem in SR, which is largely true but nobody else seems to want to admit it.

Don't you love how they always move these thread to the Dom forums rather than keep the issue out in the open over in general.

It's because you have down syndrome and dyslexia, it makes following along difficult.

Man, I hate that "General Discussion" is actually SR, even though there's an SR forum, but if people discuss things related to SR only, and not to champions in general, then they stay in SR.

It's like being a white male, it being the "norm" is "invisible".

Amusing how every single one of these threads ignores the fact that Morello flat-out stated they were working on balance changes for Dominion a while back. Heck, we've seen the effect of some of those; do you think Rammus was nerfed for SR?
