I understand the bot and top lane. Then there's mid? Mid just ganks bot lane and has enough mobility to power down turrets no one is currently defending?


Mid is referring to mid capture point. Player who captured mid usually goes help top immediately after capturing mid point. Unless of course it's obvious they're already dying like flies there so top is lost case, then you go gank bot.

Since Riot refuses to balance this mode, meta has a different meaning here.

In SR, meta refers to positions and roles, since multiple champions can fit those roles. In Dominion, because it is a broken mode, the meta consists of SPECIFIC champions.

Kassadin, Kha'Zix, Diana, Akali, Katarina, Nidalee, Jayce, Elise, Amumu.

Whoever has the most champions from that pool wins. That's all you need to know.

I thought the meta was to ensure 1 player gets Kassadin on your team.

Akali, Amumu, Diana, and Katarina do not deserve to be in the same conversation with the others there, sorry, and entirely throw off your "most champs from that pool."

Only Kassadin is really an auto-win if the person knows what they are doing.

yeah, kass is really the only true op. the rest on there are strong, but easily manageable, or noob traps for people who don't understand their mechanics
