Riot, I defend you when all my friends talk about DotA(2) and *** being better. I told them, "you just wait! Something awesome is coming this week from Riot" expecting the graphics, replay, spectator mode, and/or some of the "reworks" we have been asking for to BE RELEASED THIS WEEK. While I am excited for Dominion and it looks cool, I have to be honest and say if the ANNOUNCEMENT for something LATER THIS YEAR is what you insisted we got our hopes up for, you may have broken my heart beyond repair. Please don't let me down :-(

**** there is lots of Dota 2 hate in this thread. Anyone who mentions it favorably gets downvoted. I have full intention of switching to Dota 2 if this doesn't pan out as well as I expect.

Hype leads to more hype which eventually leads to disappointment. We got trundled folks, nothing new this week. Cool video, im excited no doubt. But wish that the hype was actually leading up to a release of something this week, and not the announcement of a release, which will come at a date we'll give out later....

From the destructoid article:

Dominion is set on a completely different map called Scar Crystal, which is described as "a highly contested, war-torn mining village." Scar Crystal is basically the neurotic younger sister of the original map, Summer's Rift. It has a haphazard, circular terrain that forces your team to be scattered and immediately go head-to-head with other champions as opposed to Summer Rift's linear, predictable three-lane map.

Riot, I would just like to say, thank you for this new content. And i'm sorry for all the whiners you have to deal with in this playerbase who are so needy. They all scream for new game modes and maps, and when you guys give news of it, details, videos, they still whine and complain and start threats of pillaging or what have you. So, from someone who has a lil' more maturity about them, thank you.

We met up with a bunch of the biggest gaming media outlets in the world earlier this week to give them their first look at League of Legends: Dominion - and get their hands on it right from the start!

In this thread, I'll be detailing all of the news around the interwebs as stories surface.

Joystiq
http://www.joystiq.com/2011/08/04/le...inion-preview/
"Dominion certainly turns the genre on its head, in a way that retains the elements that are now standard, and tweaks the gameplay in brand new ways. Riot promised players that it would do something "surprising," and it wanted to bring something new to the genre, so Dominion seems destined to enable both goals."

IGN
http://pc.ign.com/articles/118/1186028p1.html
"Dominion, an entirely new game type for League of Legends, is more exciting than a rollercoaster built on top of a giant rollercoaster car that is actively moving on another rollercoaster. On fire."

Eurogamer
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...minion-preview
"This represents an enormous addition to a game that has been traditional, almost conservative in adhering to its DotA-influenced style of play, and where the focus has almost always been on the development of new characters or new tactics. This Riot has started a revolution, and one that has arrived at just the right time."

Kotaku
http://kotaku.com/5827657/league-of-...-map/gallery/1
"Riot Games describe Dominion as an "accelerated version of the classic League of Legends" with matches lasting about 20 minutes. Gamers will have their first chance to check out the game later this month at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, and later at PAX Prime in Seattle."

Destructoid
http://www.destructoid.com/preview-l...n-207917.phtml
"Riot Games has addressed this issue by introducing something entirely unheard of in the genre. Enter Dominion, the newest gameplay mode that overhauls the classic system to accommodate a more fast-paced, action-packed gaming experience."

ZAM
http://www.zam.com/story.html?story=27239
"In a nutshell, Dominion is League of Legends distilled into pure adrenaline."

MMORPG.com
http://www.mmorpg.com/gamelist.cfm/g...Announced.html
Hahahahahaha.

Right. Just like you sent out details of the Magma Chamber map to all those gaming magazines. They even published the artwork and detailed what it was going to be like. How's that working out for you? Tell you what there Champ, if you want people to get excited maybe you guys are Riot should actually release it instead of just hyping up and glittering another "SOON" announcement.
