I play dominion for a SR break, or when I have about 30 minutes before I need to stop playing. I set aside 1 hour for SR.

I actually like dominion, I play 1 dominion to every 5 SR games, for the most part.

Anything that you need to know for SR that you can't learn in Dominion, you can learn in a coop vs AI game.

I use it for when I have 30 mins to set aside. Playing it constantly starts to ruin how fun it is, which is why I think people don't like the game.

Actually I personally have noticed an improvement in fights in general. Dominion forces me to match up against many different champs frequently; the constant fights help me learn all of the nuances of the champion I'm using against all kinds of enemies. As a result I find that any champion I spend a lot of time with in Dominion I'm much more adept at using it strategically in duels or team fights on SR.

Just think how hard you would stomp SR if your SR elo was as horrible as your Dominion elo.

P.S. Taric? lol. And Rammus isn't even banned in tournaments anymore.

I used to play it consistently because it was quick draft queue time and it was new and fast paced. I also wanted to use it to practice new champs and learn their kits to be ready for combos in SR.

Unfortunately the casual play factor doesn't exist anymore because draft queue times are upwards of 20-30 mins with the potential to get a dodger at no penalty to them.

I still use it to get used to new champs and to blow off steam im not having a good day ranked.

Dominion has missed the window of opportunity to be taken seriously.
