Or is [http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot..._4371455_n.jpg dominion] the [http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot..._5775580_n.jpg hardcore] of [http://chzderp.files.wordpress.com/2...meet-again.jpg summoners rift]?



1. SR victory is contingent on map awareness, while Crystal Scar is more No. of [http://a4.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot..._3719427_n.jpg champions] alive - No. of champions visible + intuition?

2. You start at level 1 in SR with 475 gold; in CS you begin at level 3 with 1375 gold.

3. Gold gain in SR is 6.5 per 5s and 28.5 per 5s in CS.

4. Several champions are far more proficient in CS, but many more are not; you could say the same for SR.

5. You can counter pick specific champions in SR, usually winning the game at champ select; in CS you develop a champion build to counter the [http://a8.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot..._4636622_n.jpg enemy] that is most gold efficient regardless of farm.

6. [http://a1.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot..._3092104_n.jpg Bot lane] in CS is the silent carry of the SR's support.

8. If you [http://a4.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot..._7928742_n.jpg died] in: SR, then /[http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/3205/kiddeath.jpg surrender] at 20, otherwise it doesn't matter in CS.

9. [http://a4.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot..._4815096_n.jpg Its really hard to win SR without destroying a few towers. Its also really hard to win in CS if you are playing Super Smash Bros].

10. Its also really hard to win in SR without team [http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs43/f/20..._by_mgs904.jpg communication], perhaps vent. In CS, sometimes I feel like riot is playing a game of [http://a4.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot..._4815096_n.jpg risk] with the champions.

[http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot...3_454369_n.jpg +1 if you agree] or because you enjoy [http://a8.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot..._6377935_n.jpg this]. Who [http://fc05.deviantart.com/fs19/f/20...l_by_tomho.png wouldn't]?


#Sidenote to LOL forum buffs: how do you create an external link to just a word. I thought it was the url and the words in square brackets but with a space. :/

Its a different game mode. You can't say that field hockey is softcore hockey.

Your pictures are obnoxious and almost all Bleach. Or is it "they're obnoxious BECAUSE they are almost all Bleach." Yeah, that. Dominion is the hardcore Dominion. SR is the hardcore SR. TT is the softcore SR =P

You're missing the point. There is no number 7.

But the improper link editing does come off obnoxious. I can't find how to link a word on these forums :/ It would look so pretty otherwise.

Dominion is faster and it is easier to recover from setbacks, meaning that it is harder for individual players to drag down their team and harder to sit on a early game lead.

Deciding to push/farm creeps or not is more of a choice.

Dominion requires map awareness, but there is less management and more prediction.

I wouldn't call it softcore.

It's different. Maybe not your cup of tea. But it is for many others. The main problem is most people have not given it a chance. They've played 20 games of it, maybe, and look at it as mindless killing, when there is actually a lot of underlying strategy to it.

Also, here's a picture of a duck, because ITT, we link in random images:

Not only is the majority of the first post unreadable because of the hyperlinks, the parts that actually are legible are either completely incorrect or utterly pointless.

Well done, OP. Just keep beating that dead horse with the rest of the GD trolls.
