Is it worth doing a specific champion counter...

I suppose my main concern is whether anyone would actually read a quite in-depth (few paragraphs) guide on countering specific champions in Dominion as apart of a Champion Dominion guide?

Personally I find it as quite a good reference material for myself anyway and helps to collate all my thoughts. However obviously with 94 different champions at the moment that is quite a lot of writing...

So, are you planing on writing a countering guide for dominion, or a dominion guide with a section for coutnering certain champions?

Latter. A section for a dominion guide on countering certain champions.

You'll never be able to do it properly when items and whatnot are taken into consideration.

Don't bother.

You needn't write a counter for every single champion, just the common ones.

True but the champions will always be using the same abilites. Plus generally most people will play their champion in their typical role. As I am also doing it in a Dominion guide I will always be the same character too, which means the variables that you can act are also diminished.

Getting it exactly right all the time as you say, would be impossible. But getting it right most of the time I do not believe to be such an unobtainable task.

Yeah makes sense to deal with the common champions first and the ones that pose the greatest threat to my champion. Will try to keep that in mind more. Thanks.

However this is somewhat dodging around my original question of whether people would read it. Obviously I have one no at the moment.

I generally downvote guides solely based on those sections because it's not always correct information, and newer players reading might think that everything they're reading is correct if the guide reaches a high score.

I really liked researching and writing a "Targeting Champions" section with all the champions, but in the end, it's not worth it, and as Duff said, it can quickly get out of date and become incorrect. Write about only the most common, or the ones your specific champion synergises or has troubles against.

Hmm OK I will probably try keeping it down to a summary of primary role, threat level and just a list of their abilities then. Thanks for the feedback. Not like anyone seems to read Dominion guides anyway really. xD
