They answered why they couldn't release Dominion and if they can give an ETA. Soon isn't a concrete ETA, as is near future, but will you still be *****ing once streams go up of the limited beta?

Also we have not announced a release date for it yet so it hasn't been delayed.
was laughing at this for a a while. servers will die doesn't really matter will you do all preparations you have in mind right now or not. every single big patch caused server lags, so what's the point?

They provide no ETA because its the smartest thing to do...best to make sure u can do it...before u do it

I do wonder but...how are they going to prevent the server from crashing when i assume ( and they would) that Dominion will lead to the largest amount of logins seen yet?

Trying to make the communication between servers the most efficient possible.

There will be a beta test in the near future at off peak times. While we will announce this, we don't want to give to much notice to avoid overloading the servers with the first tests in addition to being sure our servers are ready for the test.
Off peak hours?

Like when productive members of our society are at work?

Again my job punishes me. Why did I move out of my parent's basement?

More likely when productive members of our society are asleep. But, same difference.

I think this is the difference between server lag or being #9000 in queue to...servers are down, comeback later. I think they are realizing they've created more hype than their hardware can handle.

You know if they want to be really evil, They should just unlock dominion for only people who have purchased more than 30 bucks of RP ;D there is your slow release date, plus it would make people spend more money! it's a win win!.

Hey guys,

Just to round up a few of the main talking points here, Dominion is feature complete; when we talk about Beta we don't mean in terms of gameplay feedback, though we always love receiving it. We rolled it out at Gamescom for several days straight and it ran perfectly, the problem is that we need to test the Live Server with a Trillion* people joining at once (*Estimated).

Dominion is almost ready on Live, we've been pushing the assets for some time now. However we've learned a lot about maximizing stability to make sure we can minimize any problems, we can save time in the long run by taking a little time now. Which is better for everyone.

I hope that explains a little here about just how far along we are, it's great to see everyone so excited, and we can't wait for you to hit the Crystal Scar.

Tamat,

Thank you to yourself, all of the Riot development team for your continued hard work. Releasing a project like this takes massive amounts of time and resources, and I know how much pressure the community has placed on your shoulders.

We really do appreciate all the work that goes into League, and I for one am extremely happy with how Riot is moving forward here.

Thank you again!

Wow, what're the error bars on that?
