How is it more stress? Dominion requires different strategies than trying to feed your carry.

The stress of just playing the game mode they choose to play? I mean all things considered high end Dom players whose matches were in spectate mode would probably just carry on as normal, or more likely just try to play a little better or make it a better show in hopes more people become interested in Dominion.

sauron should have enough elo alone to pop that

I'm guessing it would show the match to be spectated once all champions are picked and players are at the loading screen

That is definitely something we've considered. I would love to have a slot on the featured games list for Dominion and TT. Right now, featured games algorithm and such is a pretty basic implementation. We'll improve it over time. We have plans.

Ah yes, 'we have plans'. The new 'soon' for Riot. It is a pretty safe bet at this point that they're not going to push Dominion publicly again unless they roll out ranked. It's also downright insulting when then claim to remember TT when the jungle rework completely broke an already troubled map, and have ignored it.

Don't the top guys usually team queue? Unless there's enough in queue for a decent match I don't think a team of 2400 guys against a team of 1800 guys will be very entertaining to watch.

Why do you need to "carry" every team game?
