Seriously. This new game mode is so fast. ADs don't have to farm half the game to be effective. Dieing isn't a huge detriment, so it's kinda like a first person shooter where sometimes the best course of action is to take risks. The map is ganky, but not in the rage inducing way like Twisted Treeline. It's just good.

Best part? If I get a derp team I don't have to put up with them for long!

My hat is off to... ...Brackhar I think is the lead designer on the Dominion project? I know he's the guy who made alot of the champs I like.

It just feels so slow in comparison. I wish they'd just leave Dominion up, it's been up all day and the servers aren't exploding so I don't see the harm.

Second.
I don't fall asleep anymore like i do during a 10 minute laning phase...

*edit*

And it really is exactly like an FPS in the way conquest modes mirror Dominion.
As in everyone wants to kill each other but a lot of the time forget the capture points even exist...

Only prob is that its completely unbalanced and they cant balance it without affect sr which is source of competitive play

I'm surprised the servers haven't crashed, about half my friends list was on and playing it a little while ago so obviously alot of people have noticed it's up. Not a bit of lag, no login queue, nothing.

I guess Riot actually managed to launch something big without their servers asploding. I hear there's a stiff breeze starting to blow through hell right now.

I'm not so sure of this. I can see some champs, Ryze for instance, struggling here. But thus far I've seen numerous tanks, tanky DPS, mages and AD do well. Supports I haven't seen much of, but I can already tell Nid is going to be terrifying here.

Supports do great. I've seen Nid, Zil, and Sona all do well. Game mode is pretty balanced imo. Just much different; you have to adjust and play chars a lot different.
