Personally i would much rather have the dodge penalty. Ranked sounds fun and i think it would give Dominion some credibility, but if you think that que times are bad now just wait until you split the draft players in half. The 3-7 dodges per game are hurting my Dominion experience more than the lack of a ranked game.

I don't know the status of ranked right now. I'll ask around.

Regarding Zhonya's Ring: I'd prefer not to go down that route. Given the hypothetical, preferable scenario where AP are as viable as any other class, having every AP player rush the item would probably have negative effects on the game.

I did, with limited involvement.

id love an answer to this as well. the removal of the queue dodge penalty is very confusing

QFT, if they put dodge penalties back in I could play draft and get more than one game ever 15 minutes...

imho there are plenty of e-peen competitive players on the internetz specially on Lol which is mainly a pvp game if they introduced ranked Dominion it woulb be another thing for those players to show off, thus attracting more people, i wouldn't think that ranked dominion would increase the queue times.

Nome, how about adding people on eu-w and playing games with them? Our chat-room has lively people lately, in the evenings, and I'm sure I could get many of the higher Elo players to play with you - even custom games with tournament level players/teams if so desired.

Add Ranked, then let's focus on other way less important stuff.

For kicks, I went over to the EU-W server a while ago to see if they had a wildly different meta. I normally have ~80 ping on the US server, whilst on EU-W I have 120 or so. A friend I queue with often goes from 90 to 150, another from 50 to 200.

So basically, the pings are going to be a bit of an issue.

I have 120 ping normally on eu-w, and it's the server I always play on :P
120 is not uncommon for 1-2 people to have in every game on eu-w.
