Right now, the Dominion IP reward is significantly lower than the SR reward for the same duration game. This is including the extra Dominion bonus.

I am not sure why this is the case, but it's pretty shocking. Playing Dominion right now is somewhere between playing Custom games and playing Co-op vs AI in terms of IP reward. You get less for a loss at 20 min SR game than you get for a 20 min win on Dominion.

Please do something to fix this. I enjoy playing Dominion games because they are fast paced and fun, but now I'm reluctant to do it given how much IP I give up by playing Dominion.

30 minute custom game against bots in SR gives me about 75 IP
20 minute game in pvp'd dominion gives about 65 IP if I win, and 45 IP if I lose.


I'd say it's about right.
But OVERALL the IP gain is kind of poor.

They wont change it. Slowly they reduced the IP in all the game. The other day i managed to get 6K, bought 3 quintissences and boom, there goes all of it.
It's stupid but, they make you buy champs to compensate the ip i think, at least that's what happens to me.

This isn't even factoring in queue times

The IP gained per minute of gametime is actually ok compared to SR, but what needs to happen is that you get +1 or +2 IP per minute spent in queue. That's what really kills it for Dominion players.

I'd argue you'd probably average out higher in Dominion because games you are losing (games you get less IP in) will last much less than an SR game, giving more time for more games (and more wins). Whereas in SR a game you are losing likely won't be over until at least 20 minutes have passed and people can surrender.

I'd like to believe that's what the Dominion Bonus is at the end of games.


I WANT TO BELIEVE.

I hope that this is something Riot will address in the future with their new Director of eCommerce. Since IP is directly related to things that are bought in the store. The IP gain and IP costs must be low enough that players will be happy. At the same time, it must take enough time to gain IP where many players will still be tempted to buy champions through RP. Finding that golden balance is the true challenge.

I would hope that Riot will address this soon. But like I said before, since Season 2 Championship is around the corner, I wouldn't expect anything big until after the championship. IP gains and IP costs in general is something a lot of players are not satisfied with, not just the Dominion community. Although, I will admit that we do have a shorter stick in the pile of short sticks.

It's too bad this isn't feasible. It would make people queue-time farm. That is, read a book or something while waiting for the queue to pop, Accept the match, then AFK after the game loads. That's a lot of IP for a 5-minute loss.
