This would help, but what we need more than a healthy draft queue is a healthy Dom population in general. Maybe before that we need to have a Dom playerbase who knows and understands the meta. Right now it's very 'lulz imma go test a build im dom cuz it's srs bzn'

If we want a ranked dominion we need to practice. More people need to queue up for draft dominion. Also draft dominion has the best music in league.

The problem with draft and the reason most people stopped queuing up for it is the dodges. People would just dodge if their champs were banned. Queue times before the dodgers were effectively 1~2 mins with the constant people dodging and the time it took for picks & bans just took too long. In fact, queue times would often be equal to in-game playing time. This was due to not being a penalty for dodging queue, hence the need for ranked.

This was when there were only 4 bans also...

the problem is the dodge, you are drafting someone doesn't like the picks, and he dodges.....draft needs ranked.

Dodge penalty was accidentally(at least i hope it was an accident) removed from dominion for 8 months this led to constant queue dodging in draft and blind pick however it was much worse in draft.
This led to nearly everyone leaving draft pick dominion and a large chunk of players leaving dominion altogether.
Unfortunately as far as anyone can tell that damage is irreparable until ranked is implemented.
However, Riot is afraid that it won't be enough due to the negative stigma related to dominion after the dodging fiasco and that they will need to do something more drastic to get the attention of the player-base.
This is something that scares me because in the end this translates into dominion getting a map rework.
Now of course this could be very good for us but it could also just make the game that much worse (though if Nome makes walls smaller Kassadin will be less absurd)
