aye...the very fact that m5 is such a sensation shows how little 'strategy' we;ve actually had in SR for so long now...when a team with some actual strats and plans comes out everyone is shocked and awed...you can't replicate it in solo queue however the trust/communication just isn't there.

Dominion requires good team cohesion, but also promotes it, you haven't lost till the end and if you waste time typing YOU lsot the team the game not any1 else

We cant have Magma Chamber because it caused balance issues, and yet Twisted Treeline and Crystal Scar are okay? Real smooth, Riot.


If they made Magma Chamber it'd be popular for a week and then everyone but a handful of people would forget about it and play SR exclusively.

I still play dominion because troll picks can work out really well. The game is more about strategy which makes more champions good choices.

27/10 Tiamat Twitch running Revive/Ignite, does work. I had something like 1800 points and the next person had around 1050.

Dominion really does need ranked mode, even if Riot thinks it isn't balanced enough for it (as though SR is perfectly balanced...)

And here I thought the reason it wasn't more popular is because it's horrifically unbalanced. You can only enjoy Dominion if you don't mind having an unkillable AD Sion; a Heimer/Singed that you can't cap points from; or a Rammus that is everywhere on the map at the same time.


Sion, Heimer, and Singed, eh? Haven't played Dominion since launch week I take it?
