they obviously scrapped Magma Chamber. Things happen.

fact is, they are still creating and that is good.

even the downvotes you've received for making this claim are not sufficient to stake a claim on knowing what the community wants. You are not the spokesman for the community, don't try to be one

Why QQ over being thankful?

Because a new map and new game mode is more fun than just another map with the same exact game mode

Also the fact that Magma chamber is a bit cliche, Dominion is something new to moba games and should bring an entirely different aspect to it.

Some will love it, some will hate it, but thats always been true of capture and hold.

New Gameplay > New Map

New Gameplay, exciting for veterans and newcomers. Provides a different option.

New Map, exciting for the first few weeks / months (probably pushing it). Minimal change to gameplay. Map design and mechanics may cause other champs to become OP / UP, etc.

Because a new map without a new game mode won't ever get used. Look at twisted treeline. If you want a new map, go play that cause i would bet the average LOL player has played less than 5 real twisted treeline matches.

People whine like they really want magma chamber, but summoners rift is the one and only map for classic play.

The main reason is because of the size of Magma Chamber.

Riot is continuing to try and make the early game more fast paced and aggressive. Due to the size of magma chamber it would take a long time before any action starts due to the long amount of time it would take to get from spawn back to your lane as well as getting jungle ganks as the distance is just too great.

Magma Chamber was just too counter productive to some of Riots main goals for the game so it was shelved and Dominion which is a much smaller and faster paced game was put into development instead.

because they said it wasnt "origional" because it was another 5v5 map, which is already a stupid reason, if it's a larger map, I dont know why they couldnt just make it 6v6 or 7v7

as to why they would release a mode nobody asked for all of the sudden, and why players are treating anyone who questions this, like nazi war criminals is completely beyond me

edit: also to anyone who said "a slow game is counter productive", **** off and go play cod you posers, taking out minion farming, controling lanes, ganking etc etc and just making players blow up each other at 2 minutes is counterproductive to what LEAGUE OF LEGENDS IS
