Yupp and now people have no reason to play or ban him. (RIOT REWORKS FTW)

Back OT: It'll be a change of pace. Champions that work in this meta might not work well here. Someone mentioned Teemo earlier. I would think he'd be annoying as **** to play against once past level 6.
We'll just have to wait and see what happens at PAX.

I just don't hope this gets the same as Magma Chambers..... they promise it and then it takes ages to get it implied.

Magma Chamber's been put on the shelf.

That means they're not working on it, and it is uncertain if they were ever start working on it again.

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.


I doubt half the player-base is going to switch modes and play Dominion exclusively. In fact, in a press release/interview, they said that it's designed to be faster paced, only about 20-30 minutes per game, and be a more intense experience with more action. Then the rioter said something like "Then when a player wants a longer, more strategic match, you can go back to Summoner's Rift."

That last part is wrong. Dominion will feature Draft-pick as soon as it launches, though it will still be unranked. Riot has said that ranked play and AI additions are possibilities in the future.

I also read somewhere that you start at level 3 with 1300 gold, and they replaced the 475 gold Doran's items with 1300 gold counter-parts. This is uncomfirmed, however.

@PsiGuard:

The map is more intense THROUGHOUT the game. And therefore, more fun.

A lot of people play for the intense fun. Dominion is like a perpetual laning phase, except the lane is a giant circle.

A lot of people enjoy the laning phase more then the late game. Things are more comfortable, and ganks are fun too. So I think a lot of people WILL switch to Dominion exclusively.
There will even be a lower leaver chance because the games are shorter. There'll be less "Sorry, dinner time" or "Sorry, pool on fire" excuses because of noobs having bad foresight about time. It's more condensed and will be highly addictive.


No one wants a "longer" game. It just depends on the amount of fun and how much time they can fit in.

So yeah, a large part of the player-base WILL switch to Dominion.
People will still play Summoner's Rift a lot because there's ranked, but Dominion will be a major rival in popularity and server-space.

I can't believe you've never tried swimming in a pool of gasoline

It's very relaxing
