Yeah, everyone is just playing AD because unlike SR AD is good out of the gate on Dominion. Until that desists: Build armor, win game.

Most of the extremely mobile champs also happen to be AD.

However, don't forget that there have been a ton of Rammus, Akali, and Kennen players on dominion. Which, they all do magic damage


Kennen is sooo goooood there.

Just not going to happen, you can spread the word all you want, unless you are a "pro" and have an active stream with 10k viewers nobody is going to listen.

Your best bet is to try and build a premade team and play Dominion with them on a voice chat program if you are looking for intelligent team play. Solo queue will never be anything but a hot mess.

it's obvious that champions with high mobility and aoe damage are the best picks on dominion

first off this game changes how it is played it in fact makes it so mobility is best not the ability to aoe or win team fights none of that matters.
you coul,d have someone in fact just run around getting points and they have a good chance of winning

I'm getting pretty sick of everyone picking nothing but AD as well.

But then I pick Lux and out-perform all of them.

Mages generally have strong early games and high burst damage.

AD champs have strong late games and constant dps.

Unlike SR there's never that "early game" where mages do exceptionally well. There are some mages that do good in dominion: kass, nidalee, rumble to name a few. But slow long cooldown champs like annie and viegar are going to be god awful by design.

You keep saying to "Spread the word" but what word are we spreading exactly? That a heavy AD comp is wrong? Who says? Just because you say it doesn't make it so, there is no right or wrong team comp for a given map/gametype.

The main things you look for in a dominion champ is: tanky, no need to farm/CS, doesn't *need* a tank or support to hold a point. It just so happens that tankier AD champs are primarily the ones in those categories.

Edit: a "utility" style champ for poke harass and/or base neautralizing works as well but that isn't really what this thread seems to be talking about
