"These aren't tower dives, these are full-on teamfights from 15 minutes on!"

Someone should tell him he gets that a lot sooner on Dominion...

Not to beat a dead horse or anything but they're talking about how exciting this game is because it's such an action-packed back and forth game, and yet the community as a whole seems to shun Dominion for the same reason. Just don't get it...

People hate change. They fear it. "If it ain't broke..." is too much of a popular meme.

I mean, just look at the shift in FOTMs in this game. Things go from troll to OP overnight because they are 'discovered' by pro players. People are too afraid to admit that they couldn't think of something someone else did.

Because SR has down time. The build up makes the up coming fights more epic. Constant death in Dominion comes off as mindless to the average player and how immediate objectives effect the flow of the game isn't apparent. It also doesn't help that it's noticeably harder to carry a Dominion game.

I'm not saying Dominion needs to be changed but king of the hill and base capture type gameplay just doesn't seem to be very appealing to SR players. Two different playerbases.

Too popular because Riot didn't "fix" SR with Dominion, they made a different game.

They need to market the game mode more, because we all know everybody gets convinced by marketing.

They need to reach former Impossible Bosses and FPS players instead of trying to get satisfied SR players to cut their SR practice time.

I get that, I do. But honestly in games at this high a level the only really down time is when people are dead. The only thing separating the two at this level in a gameplay sense is gameplay length, chance of comeback, and respawn timers.
