Okay guys, I feel the need to come in and tell everyone to take a breather.

We always knew this was the public opinion of Dominion. So, this isn't really anything new.

What is new is that there is a writer who wrote about Dominion. It's controversial, but we need to start somewhere.

What we should do is get A LEVEL HEADED PERSON THAT CAN REMAIN CALM to go on his Facebook and/or Twitter and say

Hey,

I read your article but I feel that you are not fully understanding what Dominion really has to offer. There are a lot of players who do take Dominion seriously and were offended by your comment "The best part about Dominion is it doesn’t even matter if you win or lose cuz its F#$KING DOMINION!" or treating it as just a "warm up" to Summoner's Rift.

What I am asking you to do is give Dominion a chance to show you that we have a lot more to offer than just a "warm up."

If you are interested in learning what we have to offer, here are some resources.
1) High-Elo Dominion:
YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/vatoclan
http://www.youtube.com/dominatedominion
Stream: http://competitive.na.leagueoflegend...minatedominion

Every Saturdays at 7:00 PM CST, is the weekly Dominate Dominion Tournament that has RP prizes supplied by Riot Games.

2) Dominate Dominion, currently one the most-well known Dominion Community in NA
Website: http://www.dominatedominion.com
Twitter: https://twitter.com/DominateDom
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DominateDominion
In-Client Chat Room: "DominateDominion"

"DD TheFeedski" is the man you want to talk to if you want to get more information about the Dominion community.

3) Guides
Sauron is considered one of the best Dominion players around. He essentially wrote the ebook on Dominion.

Sauron's Super-Duper Mega Intergalactic Dominion Guide Version 2.0!

I hope you understand that Dominion has a lot more to offer and that you give it the chance to show you.

From,
Bob, the Generic Champion

P.S. Dominion is currently a growing community that is experiencing exponential growth in the recent weeks. The smart person would try to get us on their side. I don't know why, I just feel like it would be the smart thing to do. Personally, I think getting the support of a growing community that has felt heavily neglected and frustrated due the lack of respect for our map might bring some benefits to a League of Legends journalist. But what do I know?

B.A., B.S. from Nekrogen University
M.S. from Sauron Unversity
Ph.D from PECS University

Oh, apparently I would know.
Not going to lie, I would be fine if someone just sent the post script part.

While what the article says does not track with what I experience currently, as a Dominion veteran, it matches pretty closely to what I thought, what I felt, what I heard as a beginning Dominion player. And yet, I took the steps, I kept playing Dominion, and I am now a veteran Dominion player.

Let me tell you a secret, no one is born a veteran Dominion player, or a veteran MOBA player. This article takes the time to teach new players some things (even the 1 bot, 4 top is something many new players don't realize without getting shouted at), it gives them incentive to play. It tells them to treat Dominion as a fun activity, and let me tell you people keep playing what's fun, not what's a chore - which is also why I moved to Dominion from SR - which felt like a chore with the laning, just as he noted.

This article is written by someone who has 50% revives in his games, and plays more Dominion than 99% of the LoL community. This is an article that does more for Dominion, by far, than what 99% of the people who posted here, all high and mighty, or who used the downvote button have ever done for the community - including being positive in their games, telling people to come to the Dominion chat-rooms, or explaining to people what they should do in games.

This article should've been embraced by the Dominion community with both arms. Should've focused on the positives, rather than the ****ling (edit: Wow, this got caught by the filter O.O) disagreements.

Treat it as a low Elo player who's excited about Dominion after finding out about it and trying to let all his friends know - that's something to be encouraged, even if it's riddled with errors. You're going to remain without new players if you scoff at everything everyone who "doesn't know as well" says - most of you know less than others, should we take the time to scoff at everything you say? How would you feel?

Dominion community, I am disappointed, you can and should do better. For your own sake.
That assumes most of them will become veteran dom players that care. Do you really think that'll happen? Nah. Most of them will be the people who feed and chase kills and brush it off because "it's just dominion" and holy **** do I get enough of those people already.

100% of the people who never try Dominion never become Dominion die-hards.

nice article, come play dominion. just don't take ghost/flash.

its not this guys fault he has that sentiment about dominion. 99% of the LoL playerbase does, because they only base their opinion on what the pro players plays and what riot promotes.
