so people (and riot especially) seem to think that Dominion will be a new exciting gameplay mode that would be used as much as SR. There is one very important, yet obvious, reason why this will never happen.

You will not get as much IP in a dominion game as a regular game on SR

This is the reason why TT is being shafted and why Magma chamber (suppose to be hug) is so anticipated.Longer games = more IP. it doesnt matter if Riot says overall IP gains are based on time played, because no one buys it. Its the same reason why people view the IP reward on tribunal as being low. ya you only spend a minute or two on it, but the 10 IP doesnt seem worth it. Nobody is going to play 2-3 domion games to get the same IP as a SR game.

You currently get the same amount of IP for a TT game as an equivalent amount of time SR game.

and yet TT is played much less than SR. that is exactly my point. people dont care that IP is based on time, they want a larger number next to "IP Gained"

2 Dominion games can equal the same amount of IP recieved of 1 Normal game. Heck, even 3 Dominion games can equal the same amount of IP recieved of 1 Normal game.

I don't care if I get less IP; I'll still play Territory Control -.- (Dominion)

And the reason I don't play TT is not because of less IP; it's because the balance is screwed up on that map.

Can't play the champs I want to play on TT if I want to win.

I don't find this a problem, maybe because my main and several other frequently-played champs are better on that map than SR. However, I admit that when you face an all-tanky DPS team on TT, you should just surrender to save yourself the trouble.

Just dont think about your ip then look up and see that you have a lot of it...honestly, each time i buy a champion i am astounded when i see 2-3k ip saved while over playing them...as soon as you make a goal to spend your ip...it comes in slower.
