The Dominion Meta Doesn't like ADC's. But we can change this!

it's about kiting well for adc's they have to build some defense to stay alive out there, but there's a lot more awareness needed on the player's behalf. Go read Sauron's dominion guide, I feel he covers adc's pretty well in there. I'm still terrible at them....

I didn't mean to imply that Nips had a particularly good win rate. :3

Also, the diamond crew doesn't build that way either. iEdge, Sanguine, Whisper, Lantern, Dancer, and lately Zephyr are much more likely to show up than any actual defensive item.

I think we'd see more ADC if blind weren't the primary queue for Dominion. When you pick that ADC you are rolling the dice that they don't have more than 1 assassin, and if they do, you have a good team to protect you.

There was a game on Wednesday where i played Kog on stream, and was met with Pantheon, Kassadin, and KhaZix. Life was rough, those 3 would just unload on me if i even took 1 wrong step. We won, but not without good map awareness and teamwork.

Whenever I picked an ADC the enemy team always ends up being 4 gap closers top.

I stopped picking ADC's completely.

There's just no counterplay when the enemy is Xin/Akali/Kha.

ADCs require extensive teamwork to succeed, something you don't really see much of in yoloq. A full build Vayne or Kog with proper support will win games, the problem is getting to such a state without being a huge liability to the team.

A couple new item options wouldn't hurt either. I'd like to see a new 'mini-IE' that builds from Executioner's Calling, and even if they don't add BOTRK I'd still like to see cutlass build into something besides gunblade.
