From reading the forums and seeing a huge lack of red post in this section, it seems like you guys have just given up on Dominion, as opposed to taking the time to making it a better game mode. Yet when a thread in GD is made Reds are more than happy to answer question or concerns.

It's a great game mode, nice change from SR..but it seems like it did not go as you had planned, so rather than take the time to make changes, add ranked, balance, etc you are just neglecting it and putting all your efforts towards SR. Which I do understand is the more popular map..but you put so much work into Dominion isn't it worth marketing more, trying to expand the Dominion player base?

I would really like to hear a red post, about what they are doing currently, and what they plan to do with Dominion to better the game, and get more people playing it!

People don't wanna play it, not much they can do about it.

Brackhar was pretty forum-active when he was heading up dominion, but as I understand it he's passed the reins to the live team, meaning they have to balance dominion and SR concerns for what to work on next.. Nor do I ever see them in this subforum so who knows ):

I do know there's quite a few changes 'in the works', but I don't know if they're in the same works as the stealth rework or not xP

The strong perception that Riot doesn't care about it is scaring people away. I usually have a ton of faith in Riot, but the fact that pretty much only Brackhar and ricklessabandon, two people who are not on the live team, are talking much about it makes me very concerned for its future.

The reality is they don't care.

Yes, the live team is now managing Dominion, with Geeves at the helm. To my understanding they're currently doing research as to what the best way to move forward beyond small balance tweaks is.

This makes sense. So from this, it would also make sense to get any major balance changes done before introducing ranked?

Also thanks for the update

I feel that movement around the edges of the map isn't really worth while or all that interesting gameplay wise, the middle of the map has all the utility, all the buffs, except for the ones right at all the important cap points....all the outside of the map has is gold in come and pushing to get towers, as a place for movement or combat, it just isn't as interesting, theres no motive compared to the middle the sides pretty meh

and yet the edges are where a lot of the "fight or die" stuff happens :C

champions like shaco and vayne are easy to balance because they're overpowered on both maps!

can we have ranked yet

hmm, that's funny - my queues are under 10 seconds, usually. that would seem to indicate that there are lots of people wanting to play it.

all i know is that without dominion, i wouldn't be playing LoL hardly at all. too much rage in SR, too many hour-long games that were lost at 10 minutes, too much last hitting, not enough pvp.
