I agree with the OP that Revive kind of ruins the variety in Dom. imo, they should take it out, like the take out other summoners. Sure, it will never be used, but it's better than stagnating the map.

As an dom player who goes bot exclusively I don't find revive particularly problematic. I tried it myself, and while it has its uses it has such a long cooldown I don't find it hard to deal with in bot at all. Of course, maybe top is a whole other story.

Lol wtf are you saying. It's extremely influential at bot. Even if you kill or get killed, your opponent will be right back with a health advantage. So it's impossible to cap the point unless you have a massive advantage.

You've obviously never played Dominion at a high level before.


Haha, the irony!

Yup, revive should be removed but mostly for balancing issues: it's not the " I GOT KILLED IM GETTING BACK TOP IN 2 SECS hEeehuEUUHEAHUHEUAHHAHAA #1" what bothers about revive it's the fact that you HAVE to take it and it uses up the slot of the utility summoners (ghost/flash) that some champs (galio, fiddlesticks, nunu, etc.) could use to gank/initiate WAY better (thus forcing the meta towards champions that don't need that. AKA durrrpz.).
Also with that much revive going around, Riot hasn't noticed how ****ed up the revive timers are when a team is up by 300 points which should be TOTALLY noticeable in a game without revives.

"when played well, 5-man revive basically trumps any other possible summoner loadout"

Yeah Im not so sure about "new meta" buuuuut if your not taking revive then your not playing to win. I have a feeling if revive was taken out we would just see teams run 5 garrisons. Which is fine with me since I pmuch always run garrison anywaysss and it would be nice to have dat extra summoner spell slot for anything thats not flash. i think CV could be kinda strong :3 even with sweeper and all.
