There was a lot of hype for the game...but after the limited beta and the first two weeks of release, I found myslef just going back to SR.

The gameplay is just innovative enough to transport it out of the Moba genre while not quite being original or creative enough to make it a suitable alternative (in my opinion).

Balance is totally nonexistant, not being able to ward takes a huge strategic element out of the game. While there does seem to be a number of strategies for winning dominion, they all kind of seem shallow, boiling down to: get some fast characters get ones who defend well see what happens.

All in all...I really think it's lackluster.

But, what does everyone else think?

Something about it just feels wrong to me.
I think this is what a solid majority of players feel, from what I've heard. The idea of Dominion is cool, but something is lost in translation. I think balance is a big thing. There's almost no point at all to play most AP casters. They tend to lack mobility, do poorly in duels, squishy, etc.

Also...the not being able to (or needing to) ward thing. Warding is such a huge deal strategically in SR and even TT. Proper warding seperates the noobs from the slightly less noobs. Dominion doesn't have that at all.

It kind of feels like LoL Lite.

EDIT 2: Alright, approx 100 votes and it looks like the majority likes the concept, but thinks Riot needs to do balancing/tweaking/redisigning.

Me being a turkey is in a close second.

EDIT 3: I seem to have been moved over to maps and modes discussion. Makes sense.

I think it's pretty fun because it's fast paced, and constant team fights or 1v1 and it's a good choice when I just wanna do a short game or something. It gets pretty intense sometimes xD

Yeah, Shaco box staking and Rammus zipping around like an ******* wore out the novelty after game #4 for me.

I played about 5 games during the beta, and never really liked it. I think it's a good idea, but needs a lot of work

i don't understand how they can take an already done concept, eg.) Arathi Basin, and fail so hard at it...

I like both game modes. I play them pretty equally. Symmetry in all things.
