It's amazing how little forethought appears to be in many of these posts.



Okay guys, first off. Dominion is highly likely to NEVER have ranked.
It's a game mode made for CASUALS.

Riot has chosen to focus on their much larger casual fan-base, which is why they shelved Magma Chamber which would only expand on the current "hardcore" strategy gaming.

One Rioter even directly stated that he's more or less expecting 50% of LoL's fanbase to play Dominion exclusively. That's how much of the casuals they're focusing on; and LoL is definitely higher in the casual-fans then DotA, or HoN.

Note: This will also likely mean no draft-mode involved. But, this is yet to be confirmed.



Second, two spells will be exclusively Dominion: Promote and Garrison.

Promote will probably the old removed summoner spell. The minion upgrade will likely be easier to balanced in Dominion where pushing is a serious part of the game.

Garrison is to replace Fortify, as it allows you to buff/nerf one single allied/enemy turret respectively. Again, emphasizing pushing in the game.

Two spells are also being removed. Teleport and the aforementioned Fortify. Obviously, these skills are not needed/overpowered respectively on Dominion.




Third, NEW exclusive items on Dominion to replace excluded ones.
Little info on it yet. Some screenshots here and there.

Items like Madred's, Wriggle's, and Banshee's Veil will NOT be available in Dominion.

Two items I've confirmed that are probably replacements:
-Ionic Spark: HP/AS + Chain-lightning on-hit proc that spreds damage to nearby enemy units
-Odyn's Veil: HP/MP/MR + Passive: Stores magic damage taken + Active: Deals 200+(stored damage max:400) to a target enemy unit.

Both sounding very strong, and at least 4~5 more from how the threads are going.




Lastly for my rant, Dominion is coming VERY VERY soon. Not "SoonTM," but seriously soon.

Dominion is getting showcased at PAX, and is most likely going to be released at the beginning of Season 2. (Early September) The game has also been confirmed to have been under development for OVER A YEAR.
There will definitely be footage from the events, and we can expect to see it between 2~3 monthes from now.

to follow up on what jun was saying...


balance in dominion will focus on items, not on champions. that way we don't have another tt fiasco. (they can't buff/nerf champions to balance on tt because it could **** them over on sr.)
