Does anyone just solely play dominion?

Since Dominion was released I've played maybe 5 normal games. I find laning/farming to be painfully dull, so now there's no going back.

I almost exclusively play Dom, except for the occasional bot match when I just want to muck around.

I really dislike the laning phase and snowball effects in SR. The big teamfights in SR are more fun than Dom skirmishes, but 10 minutes of last hitting to get to the fun part (and it's only fun if both teams are nice and close in gold) just isn't worth it. Dom is fun from the start.

Been playing it almost exclusively since it came out. Only play the Rift vs. Bots to farm IP.

^ I too find laning/farming dull. I just wanted to qualify what is and isn't dull.

Dull = farming for 10 minutes, hoping the carries get fed/waiting for jungler ganks, and then snowballing out of control and taking out a big stupid worm-thingy.

Not Dull = Teamfighting out the gate, towerdiving/defending, pro guerrilla jungle warfare. Farming/wave control mandatory only for bot.

Dominion is by far my favorite game type. The faster start (last hit farming can get dull), the emphasis on champion vs. champion and the capture node dynamic. If the que times get too high, I'll hop over to TT, but I don't enjoy it nearly as much.

These were the reasons I became just a dom player
then riot said they hated ppl having dom elo and cheated the community
hence my earlier post about basically not playing at all now

since 2011, i either not play LOL and played only Dominion

What got me into it is 15-25 minute games as opposed to 35-60 minute games

But the more you play, the more you realise there is a lot more to this mode then you think

Since Dominion's release I've played Dominion almost exclusively. Maybe 5-10 games of SR total, mostly because I wanted to try for S2 Janna skin. Unfortunately I just couldn't really bring myself to win enough games in SR to get that.

Always in the back of my mind when I play SR, just as the laning phase is ending I'm thinking, "A Dominion game would've already been done by now."

I like Murder Bridge too, but Dominion is my go-to map. SR has way too many angry players for my taste.
