I see you didn't get the memo.

In any case, that still doesn't deal ith the fact that there are queues that aren't used in the first place, why would they add more?

Well, when the Technical Designer says the stuff is ready to go, I think that's pretty trustworthy.

Ranked would probably be more popular than Draft, if only for the fact that there's rewards for it. A lot of players only do ranked TT for the same reason. They might even migrate to Dominion for quicker games.

Also, I assume if there was a ranked queue they would simply disable the normal draft queue. It doesn't make any sense to have both with the small population.

It's entirely possible Brackhar was wrong about ranked being ready for 'a flip of the switch' but if that were the case, someone should have said so - and no, an ENTIRE YEAR LATER just doesn't count.

Not blaming anyone in particular - until we got Nome we literally had no one as a 'dominion guy' - but just another example of how mismanaged Dominion PR was/kinda still is post-launch.
