Dominion was a lot more fun at low Elo.

1: If all you play is Kassadin for 95% of your games, you only know Kassadin which means
2. that if you were to play any other champion you would not fully understand their kit. Thus, not as good as you could be if you played more than 1-3 champions.

OP champs are OP because of the lack of skill and/or brain required to play them. Hense "faceroll on keyboard"

Additionally, the generalization I'm talking about doesn't just effect OP champions.
I play many different champions. Not because I want to be good with said champion, but because I want to understand how they work so when I face them in battle I can act accordingly with my main champion selection.

I play renekton, volibear, zed lately, leona, jax if I think teemo must die, warwick rarely now, cho'gath, sometimes leblanc, sometimes kha'zix, rarely kassadin, rarely kayle, rarely malz, hardly yi, sometimes nasus, rarely shyvanna(wish I could do more with her), shen, sometimes swain, rarely udyr, rarely urgot, rarely trundle, sometiems viktor but not lately, sometimes pantheon because teemo must die, and sometimes tryndamere

I despise most over-used champions and prefer what I like but have some better options, that I still like. I prefer dominion for fun but I do need options to get rid of over-used bull****. I've lost so many games I'd rather have a game where I'd raise my drink to toast to the fight with others , that I'd like to fight them again.

forgot to add olaf, sometimes

Not necessarily. I've won plenty of games against OPs, a majority of them actually. It's not fun and it's frustrating as hell, but the OP spammers are usually terrible players that don't know what to do if you change strategy on them. Unless played intelligently, the OP champions have counterpicks among the balanced champions. Unfortunately it is blind pick.

You don't have to if you don't want to, but if they played those overpowered champions they could be even higher elo than they already are. Sauron would probably be 3500 elo, but he probably doesn't feel the need to do that.
The queue times are long enough as it is! And many of my matches are solo queue against premades, so even if I win 50% of my games my Elo still goes up.

Brb picking Tryndamere.

Sauron, I was in the DominateDominion chat and we have decided that you should main Brand. It fits into the whole burning eyeball in the sky thing you have going for you.

I play Heimer until my eyes bleed in Dominion. He's so fun, and no one ever builds MR because of me no matter how many kills I get.

just tank your elo back to low lvls? there is no shown elo or ranked so what does it matter if your + 300 wins or - 300 wins. if you prefer to play low elo just tank a few games. thats what id do. and thats what i will do when my Q times are to high.

Heads up everyone. We have a griefer here. Assisting the enemy team to victory.

If you see this player, beware.

The irony will be that he's trying to lose, but he somehow carries his team to victory all the time then reaches high elo where your queue times are 20+ minutes.
