I prefer TT to Dominion, but Dominion to SR. Just depends on your playstyle at this point. I find playing all three modes regularly really helps me improve overall though!

I know TT does. If Dominion does though I think it's a bad idea...

This ^.

Great idea, poor execution. If you want to make the mode more competitive, I'd recommend double the time it takes for 1 champion to cap a node, but keep the additive speed capping in when it comes to 2+ person caps. This would make lame movement speed champions such as Rammus and Shaco less overpowered and more balanced as well as creating the opportunity for strategic counter-play.

I'd also recommend doing something about the mechanics behind minion waves; at the moment they seem very pointless due to their sluggish use. Consider decreasing their total health (making them easier to push) and increasing their damage (making them useful to cap).

And now a team of competent defensive-type champs can win the game mode by just interrupting caps since capping would take forever.




I really love how you discredit your own critique in the first sentence of your post. This is a very poorly thought out overreaction to OMFG BACKDOOR.

I like Dominion a million times more than Summoner's Rift, and only play Dominion now. I love being able to finish a game in 20-25 minutes. I love the faster pace. I love how its not as linear as SR. I love how certain champs are now much more fun to play and viable on the new map. I love Dominion.

How incredibly illogical. Defensive type champions cannot win team fights, nor can they succeed in the initial cap. Keep believing you have any clue how to balance a game though friend.
