And so, in preparation for the launch of the new game mode, we are planning to enter a limited beta test period for League of Legends: Dominion. During this time, Dominion will be available for play by all summoners only during limited testing windows at off-peak hours. We will keep you informed of these testing sessions as they occur, and our goal is to increase the availability of Dominion leading up to its full launch.

The purpose of this testing period is to ensure Dominion rolls out smoothly, so that hundreds of thousands of players can enjoy it at the same time – not a small feat!

Our aim is to make Dominion fully available as soon as we have satisfied all of goals for release through this beta testing period. Stay tuned for further information on these testing windows.
Ah, the infamous "Soon"

The alpha versions of games are never released for the public, and they've obviously coded and designed it, the proof is videos from PAX and the Dominion website itself.

Considering that offpeak hours are EU hours..it will be while the US sleeps/early morning/school, just sayin.

For the unintelligent people...the limited beta will not create peak hours...of all the players that play this game...MOST of us have work/school or even sleep (does the body good.) Of all of them...maybe, MAYBE 10,000 players MAX will have the oppurtunity to adjust themselves to play the beta a little bit.

Well there's not a whole lot of problems with being unemployed, especially with how things are currently with the economy. Usually that actually tends to be the reason people are playing a free to play game. And before someone says something yes it is free to play you just got impatient with grinding IP and spent a ton of money.

eh, IMO Pax was just an advertizement to hype the **** out of dominion. They can't just drop it on the servers yet or you'll get allot of bugs. What they should have done was a "beta test on off peak hours" (seeing how allot of people where at pax rather than playing lol on the client that's probably as off peak as it would get) WHILE Pax was being held so it would roll out "smoothly" (without anyone complaining about the release date I mean) but oh well. You get what you pay for, seeing how the game is F2P you won't be getting the "unexpected"(an actual soon release date) rather you'll receive the expected (a few months from now). GJ riot (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ
