I keep getting them on my team and they just sort of flail around trying to do things but end up being counter intuitive to goals. 4 at top, I'm taking their mid. BETTER ENGAGE!

Modes. Not necessarily Maps.

Maybe. Would have to ask him to clarify what he meant by other modes.

I remember in S2 some dude with 2.4k SR games and 2,200 SR normal Elo got into our games, he'd take Olaf bot, rage for ganks, after killing the enemy bot laner would go b even if their bot was free... said in all-chat I'm trolling for building Executioner's Calling on Jax FML.

Just treat those things as funny stories to be told and retold later, and don't take them to heart.
And no, they often don't have a clue. They could learn, if they are willing to, though. Many of them come thinking they already know everything, which can hinder learning, sometimes.
But some high Elo players come, are willing to learn, and join the higher echelons. Most people don't get to high plat/Diamond without having some skills which can help, and a capacity to learn and improve.

I don't believe it. You had a draft pick Dom game.

But on a serious note, I'm fine with higher season 2 ranked players trying out Dominion. If anything, if we can get a few "converted" then that is more power to us since we are getting more mechanically gifted players. Once they learn the fundamentals of Dominion, they could possibly get a team that could rival the top DD teams.

Fancy Wolf's a great example. He was a SR-main player and got pretty high. He found that he loved Dominion and switched over and his already developed mechanical skills are being put to good use since he is one of the more popular Dominion streamers (recommended by RiotRival on his Twitter on more than one occasion).

We knew for awhile. We read Sauron's Tier List.
