another thing I've noticed is that people will build 0 defenses because of the debuff. I understand going a bit more pure offense than normal due to the debuff, but unless you have a premade protecting you you're just going to explode repeatedly. particularly against these "problem" champs

When I consider bans, it's usually not myself I'm worried about, but how well the team is able to adapt. I tend to play Vayne since she can act as a counter to anything thinking stacked hp/res will save them and for jax i'd have a sotd, akali a light bringer, and im generally set.

However, just because I know I can counter, doesn't mean my teammates can or know how. Honestly I've found jax and akali to be the most disruptive as they will generally tear through anyone not prepared to counter.

Rammus is overrated a bit, but his taunt and defensive ball curl is still amazingly useful all the same. Protect your points decently and he loses his primary strength and utility in Dominion.

Poppy's burst is WAY scarier than Akali's imo.

Let me put it this way: I haven't lost many games to a Poppy yet, but she is consistently BY FAR the scariest character I have ever seen in Dominion, Trynd, Xin, Wukong, Rammus, Akali, whatever - none of them even hold a candle to that freaking midget. There's just one handy, relevant quote:
