Way too true.

I find that in general dominion is better than SR in terms of community for some things. The key difference I find is that the SR community tends to lack maturity whereas the dominion community suffers from an incredibly negative attitude. I've had people chew me out on this map in ways unlike anything I've ever seen before on SR.

Gameplay wise though I do find dominion more fun than SR and I'm really looking forward to the changes riot is planning for season 3, and what they'll mean for dominion.

In SR, you suffer forever. You are 3 and 17 with AP Caitlyn and company and the game NEVER ENDS. Enemy enjoys punishing you by slaughtering everyone repeatedly in your own jungle, wont push, and OF COURSE your team never surrenders. The baddies never do.

Every time I play SR, I usually get punished for it and swear to stick to Dominion.
This is the only reason I play Dominion more than SR.


The community is not better. It's just as bad as the SR community. The main difference is there is very little time to for negativity in game. Most of it occurs in pregame and post game lobby. The rage is also typically directed at the champion picked rather than the player on a personal level.

The pic I attached from a game I played in December is more of an extreme case but it does happen.

First off, welcome! Do drop by the DominateDominion chatroom.
Regarding the SR vs Dominion communities, I agree with Genericke, a lot of the SR folks are extremely immature, but with Dominion you can encounter more raging. IMO, Dominion is more strategy-oriented. and as such you can get grief from your teammates for perceived dumb decision-making. Though by and large I do think it is more respectful on a personal level.
BTW, Argodis, I think your screenshot more accurately captures the mood of the SR community, rather than its Dominion counterpart. Anyone playing a good amount of draft Dominion would know they were good bans, one and all. They were obviously from the SR side.
