While not a huge problem in SR, in Dominion Kog'maw's ult is just nuts. You can be trying to defend a tower and he just shows up and stands out of range of the turret and spams his ult and kills you with very little chance of retaliation or escape.

400+ .3*AP + .5*AD aoe damage every second with a 2200 range? That's ridiculous. He needs either a increased cooldown or a rework of the skill.

He could do the same thing at your tower in SR.

The good thing about Kog Maw, is that anyone who attacks him while he's stupidly shooting you will most likely have a kill, especially if they have CC.

Kog can't really be spamming the skill that often unless he is stacking mana due to for each time it used in session the cost goes up by 100.

I've seen him spam it a number of times in dominion. While the mana cost might be enough of a deterrent in SR it's not in Dominion. And yes, someone can come up behind him and make quick work of him, but in Dominion if you're defending a tower you're usually not near anyone else.

The game isn't balanced around Dominion.

Kog'Maw is very balanced.

It has been stated that Riot hopes to implement ranked Dominion, in which case balancing would take into account that. With that said, even then I don't see any changes coming to Kog'maw soon. He's the very definition of a glass cannon, incapable of withstanding much focus but able to unload on someone if left alone. He's fine.

Riot has already implemented 3v3 ranked. Is the game balanced around 3v3? Ranked systems are irrelevant to Champion balance.

Ranked 3v3 goes like this:

jax, morde, mundo, nasus, renekton, fiddles. In every god **** game.

They also have Ranked 3v3. Game still isn't balanced around 3v3. Game still won't be balanced around Dominion.

You do know you can dodge that ult with lvl 1 boots right, it shows an annimation about it and it only gets any decent range at rank 2 even then a simple gap closer can get you to him.
