Would Dominion be better if champion kills did not award gold?

I don't think it's bad that kills give gold, but I wonder if Dominion would be marginally better if only minions and tower caps gave gold.

Downvotes coming from every sector, but honestly killing an enemy player would still be really bad for them because they'd be out a lot of farm.

It would also stop the game from snowballing out of control like it does now.

Dominion doesn't snowball unless you insist on running into fights you can't win.

no, it would be worse. It would make comebacks even easier, and let's face it, if you dominate for the first half of the game, you don't want something like lack of getting the gold you deserved to help the other team just bounce back like it was nothing.

The advantage in early kills in dominion is the xp gain, not gold difference, especially when you're about to hit level 6 and the windmill has the potential to swap teams after the first cap. This would also destroy the viability of any non Jacyce/Ezreal ranged ad top.

Ranged carries are hurt by reduced income more than anyone else.

Duh.

so you lose 40g , woopda doo , kill 2 minions on the way to another tower and you make about 60 gold.
you cant sowball off gold in dominion , hence the big comback ratio's
i still dont see how it would gimp jayce/ez less than any other range carries everyone needs gold to buy that gear , your saying those 2 champions wont be hurt by removing gold on kills while the rest all is .. i know for a fact that jayce with out hisgears is just a long range tickle machine

If you're playing to faceroll n00bz in the first half of the game then coast to an easy victory, then you're not in the right game mode.
