If Riot wanted to balance this map with items.....

Why are there 6 AD items and only 2 AP items (1 of which is useless in 95% of the cases)?
It's not wonder AP champions suck on this map.
AP champions are hindered by their lack of mobility and long cooldowns, Riot could have compensated for that with items, but they didn't.

Just because you suck at mages does not make them bad on Dominion.

Also doesn't negate his point. There is a much more even layout of AD/AP items in SR

^^^^

Leblanc is a top dog in the Crystal Scar and Ryze is picked in the first 4 picks pretty much every game. Also AP casters didn't need new items to balance them they do fine with all there old items.

OP sounds like my one of my little brothers when its another one's birthday "He got a present, wheres MY present?!?"

Alot of the AD items that were replaced in the first place did extra damage to minions (Wriggles, Mandred razor/bloodrazor) or were stacked by kills (bloodthirster, sword of the occult) and needed to be changed since this game mode has no jungle monsters (Trundle not included) to fight nor are you constantly fending off swarms of minions. Other items are merely attack speed items with a small amount of damage added to it like Lightbringer, which is mostly used to keep track of your enemies.

AP champions lost 2 items to the AD's 7
