maybe when we finally get a dodge penalty this will be possible but until then, any sort of elo system in a mode without a normal and a ranked mode to separate casuals from hardcore players is toxic to the community.
Dominion had about 174k Elos on lolmatches.
SR Normals had 1.3 million. I think we're a drop in the sea.

I'm goanna vote no - Giving LoLcave my wins/losses gives a number 160 Elo below where I was when the latest patch hit.

I'm sure you could get it a little closer working from my last seen Elo but it's just going to get further and further from the actual value ):

winloss doesn't give you enough information... don't need people to get high and mighty because of bad data.

BTW, Feedski, you might want to talk to Gabrola. Lolmatches can actually know who's playing in a premade, with whom.

I do not agree i personally think a visible elo rating will promote players to invest time in trying to learn the game better to increase their elo
Once a player notices that his elo is dropping dramatically he might think to himself ,hmm maybe i need to learn this dominion mode a bid better or hmm i should increase my skills and that player will start to read up on both dominion and its meta and his champs and how they differ in dom con-paired to sr and stuff.

right now there is to many people that just run around trying to cap points and not really using the map the minions to siege capture points nor set up ganks in the fog or bushwhack.

Currently most people just view Dominion as a fast an eazy way to farm ip test builds and wat not with out any penalty's because hey , it dues not effect your sr elo nor dues it have its own ( at-least not visible) elo

Can you add me and PM me in game I have a few questions to ask. I was going to be the one who would be programming this and wanted to ask about the data from lolmatches.

Thanks :3
