U guys can flame me all u want, but i had this pic as my background 3 weeks ago. Wtf riot pls release dominion. I heard they were trying to balance the champions out. Would it not be better to release it then see what champions need to be balanced specifically for dominion.... Instead of taking forever to release some over hyped content. When dota 2 is supposed to be released soon... Im just saying

League of Legends is taking DOTA genre to whole new level... DOTA 2 is going the classic route... Me, i like ambition, innovation and integration.... Hat's off LoL team....

I'm just hoping this "instant action for the teens" game mode doesn't get every single strong early game champ nerfed just for a game mode I'll most likely rarely if ever play.

Control-point gameplay is old as time, it's been done to death, and in general disolves into everyone running a circle as a zerg capping and leaving, and whichever team finally pulls off a decisive teamfight win gaining momentum which they never lose. Most control-point game mosts in every game I've ever seen have been pretty predictable from the 5 minute mark, I doubt we'll see a change.

Strong early-mid game champ, and high damage aoe ulti dump at 11'ish will rule the day with no jungle/limited ganking. Trying to balance both modes is going to mess with the game mode I see most sticking to after the "oooooh shiney" wear's off, and they realise domination is going to play out more like 3v3, where champs like Tryn/Jax/WW/Xin/Yi Rule the day do to pressure to join early team fights. Champs like Zilean/Ashe/Kayle/Tristiana/Panth/Twitch will be brushed off. Also see Karth being a serious issues. How is his passive going to work with capture points?

If the entire game is going to be about tower cap's.. how will you balance taunt champs?

Look. add domination, I don't care. Just don't go balancing the game around it. Leave it as the "it is what it is" game mode.
