(Announcement here: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...07155#25107155 )

Basically, the first tutorial map is getting turned into an official ARAM map, with a bit of the dom Aura/items thrown in:

Yep. The purchaseable item list looks a bit like a cross between Classic and Dominion right now. Notably, Guardian Angel and the SR snowball items are out. We may tweak this list as feedback comes in.
I'm kind of torn between 'Why u no fix dominion?!?' and 'about time Riot put out an official ARAM map'.

Thoughts? Opinions? Pure, unadulterated hate?

Huh. That's actually pretty badass. Great for solo duels in a custom game.

Now, is this something that we'll be able to que up for? From what I see, looks like they are only allowing it into the creation of custom games? Or am I mistaken?

The thing about this is that they didn't put any real development time into it. They just told the developers they could do whatever they wanted, and one of them did this. So it isn't like it took time from Dominion.

They probably spent an afternoon throwing this together after they come to the conclusion they were going to remove the winter map. It doesn't really hurt Dom at all, nor does it help.

Now, with that said, if they turn around and make it a map selectable from the main interface without going into custom types, then we may have a small problem as some Dom players will leave for it to play it near-exclusively, same way they left SR for Dom.

I'm liking it, whatever makes Dom and SR so frustrating is strangely absent in it so far. Not to say I'll totally quit Dominion though.

it looks like they just said it 'may' be added to queue if it's popular enough. Which would be awesome.

It would be interesting to try out once it's released, and put that into perspective with Dominion. Though I do hope Riot improves Dominion, especially if this new ARAM mode gets even more players than Dom lol...

Meh. Apparently it's live balance who's in charge of dominion, not Brackhar and frendz.
